Subtitle: Imagination taking power

New video: ‘From What Is to What If’, a walk through a day in 2030.

Did you watch the BBC’s ‘Years and Years’? Well, here’s the antidote. What if, over the next 11 years, a previously unimaginable transformation were to take place, sparked by Extinction Rebellion’s non-violent direct action and by the student strikes of 2019/20, the subsequent election of a government committed to deep transformation, the reorienting of capital and business, the huge mobilisation of communities and social movements across the country and elsewhere, and the intentional creation of the conditions in which the imagination can flourish? A remarkable time in history that future generations now celebrate in song and story. A time of guts, focus and wild creativity. What would it be like to arrive in that world? To celebrate the impending arrival of ‘From What Is to What If‘ I’d like to invite you to take a walk with me through a day in 2030.
