Everyone agrees that we are at a critical juncture, and many are calling for deep social changes to address climate change, biodiversity loss, poverty and inequality, racism, and the direct and secondary effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. More and more people recognize the need for a paradigm shift. But what does this actually mean? What would it involve?

In this webinar, Karen O’Brien will present a draft of her new book You Matter More Than You Think: Quantum Social Change in Response to a World in Crisis.

The concept of “quantum social change” opens up an inquiry into how we relate to ourselves, each other, the environment, and the future. It aims to get us thinking about our agency and potential to act in time to make a difference and to really matter.

The presentation will be followed by a conversation and discussions about the relationship between individual change, collective change, and systems change and why [I/we] matters.

The webinar is free and open to all (registration required). Register here.
