Actions towards sustainability are complex. They are subject to an endless variety of influences.
A lot of systematic interventions are bullshit, as no one size fits all. Moreover, they make the whole very fragile: what if something that was implemented globally doesn’t work? The smaller the action, the less risks for the whole.
If everyone was able to respond to the problems in their front yard while taking the broader perspective of how ones actions influence the rest, we wouldn’t need systematic interventions.
In order to get there, we need to develop as humans: capacities such as recognizing our biases, thinking systematically while enabling ourselves to act placebased, emotion regulation to deal with all the annoying people we encounter when we try to take actions, being able to switch perspectives to understand annoying people…
Personal development is key to driving sustainble development.
