A Call for Shaping the Next World
So much has happened in the last two months! How can any of us digest it? With so many people deeply suffering, and the loss of so much life and so many livelihoods, it’s hard to know how to conscientiously and productively respond.
Many of us have been asking–individually and collectively: What will the Next World be like? How can we use our full energies to shape that world? How can we do two things at once: First, help those who are most impacted by the COVID-19 crisis restore stability to their lives, while secondly shaping a new world that is more equitable, and more true to the realities of the earth we live on?
As a clearinghouse for such ideas and information, ROAR is providing a list of local activities that address climate change directly and indirectly in our section called Local Resources. In addition, ROAR surveyed an array of key theorists and activists–both local and national–who are striving to answer those fundamental questions. Below is our list of the Top Ten Articles for restructuring the economy, fostering strong climate change action, and addressing inequities as we shape that next world.
Please have a look at these articles and resources and keep your eyes out for the next activity: ROAR will host a series of Next World Conversations in late May and June which will lead to deliberate action for the Central Ohio region.
More to come… In the meantime, stay in touch. You can post comments with YOUR ideas for building the NEXT WORLD on this article on our website or on Facebook.
