Reflecting on Obama’s Speech to COP26 I got a strong sense of how little change is going to be created by #TopDownApproaches to the #ClimateCrisis and how crucial it might be to recruit eg from @XRBuddhists and the #ExtinctionRebellion group with which I have a standing order (@XRHSL), mobile (#Nomadic) teams of #CommunityDevelopmentWorkers, acting as #CommunityBees delivering what #BorisJohnson promised in his most #ChurchillianMoment (#10thMay2020); the #MoreGenerousMoreSharing version of #GlobalBritain.

If you can win that trust then be as ready as you can to be with that person in the midst of their anxieties.Very little of this terrain is about facts and arguments 3) Gently open up the sense of choices that the person has and alternative futures. Be vulnerable and honest as to what it means to you that the person has a decent quality of life and a decent range of choices they can make that might get them there.”
