Don't just stop climate change
Just stopping climate change isn't a cause that can unite us all. It's negative, impossible to define, and creates the idea that there is a singular disastrous event coming our way.
But climate change is already happening all around us. It isn't an event that can be dodged at the last minute. So it's no surprise that 'help us stop climate change' is a message that doesn't resonate with a lot of people.
Build a better world instead
There is no greater motivation than fighting for something you believe in. History is full of moments of radical social change driven by people dedicated to a dream of a better future. They fought to create, not to destroy.
So instead of talking about fighting against climate change, we must fight for the world we wish to see. We must embed sustainability and justice into our lives and make 'stopping climate change' an effect, not the goal.
