“Organisations are designed for self-preservation. Movements have an end game, and the mechanisms to come alive when the need arises. Many mission-driven people join organisations thinking they are movements. They get caught in the inconsistencies of an organisation that ends up being a wanna-be movement.”

What do you do?

I make connections between diverse ideas and think of how they can be applied for systemic, social change.

Why?

Because I have a short life, and there is no end to consumption and accumulation. There is enough evidence to suggest that the road of progress we are on is self-terminating (or it could transform our lives beyond recognition). I want to do what I can, now. 'Now, the second best of times.'

What should we read?

The Overstory by Richard Powers.
