The Zero Waste/Circular Economy Strategy we jointly conducted with DCSDC in 2017 said implementing it will require council to lead, in partnership with others, “a culture shift in both attitude and behaviour”, transforming the region’s approach to dealing with ‘waste’. That’s what we are about. And while our focus is on the careless wasting of resources the culture shift required to correct that, touches every aspect of our relationship to Earth and each other.
It will require a Global Green New Deal and a just transition into that. The good new is the connection, joy and meaning it brings forth in us as we go. That’s not to oversimplify things either, the consciousness shift will challenge us to the core of our being. That’s the individual change the culture shift requires.
