Welcome to our new section: Acts of Leadership.
World Climate School is, as you probably know, focused on the fact, that in order to save our civilisation from collapse, we need “All Hands On Deck”, or, in the words of Lester R. Brown:
“Saving civilization is not a spectator sport”
This is the beginning of what Wikipedia writes about him:
Lester Russel Brown (born March 28, 1934) is a United States environmental analyst, founder of the Worldwatch Institute, and founder and former president of the Earth Policy Institute, a nonprofit research organization based in Washington, D.C. BBC Radio commentator Peter Day referred to him as “one of the great pioneer environmentalists.”
Brown is the author or co-author of over 50 books on global environmental issues and his works have been translated into more than forty languages. His most recent book is The Great Transition: Shifting from Fossil Fuels to Solar and Wind Energy (2015), in which he explains that the global economy is now undergoing a transition from fossil and nuclear energy to clean power from solar, wind, and other renewable sources.
Why “Acts of Leadership”:
If we need you to get on board in this process, you have to feel empowered. Feel that your contributions actually matter.
And for many, this is not easy.
Therefore we have decided to publish a series of succes stories, showing that everyone can contribute, everyone is a potential climate action leader, thereby hoping to inspire the reader to start acting to help saving civilization. No, it´s definitely not a spectators sport, and to paraphrase Barack Obama:
Yes you can!!!
