Where does change begin? Addressing the climate challenge requires incremental and transformational change on both personal and systemic levels. That means altering our personal habits as citizens, consumers, employees and parents. At the same time, society needs to fundamentally modernize the food, transportation, building and energy systems. That mind-blowing amount of change is so daunting, it’s no wonder people want to skip away into the happy land of denial.

How should we think about change — and how do our words shape our behavior? Will factors like power, social status and morality affect the transition to a green economy? Join us for a conversation on transforming our systems and ourselves with George Lakoff, professor emeritus of cognitive science and linguistics at UC Berkeley, Amanda Ravenhill, executive director at the Buckminster Fuller Institute, and Margaret Klein Salamon, founder and executive director of The Climate Mobilization.
