Changing our mindset, the way we perceive our world, is a powerful component of taking practical action. Engaging with - and deeply understanding - concepts such as "sustainability", "environmental worldviews", "ecopsychology", "complexity theory" and "resilience" are vital stepping stones.
As Einstein said, "no problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it"!
