I have talked a lot about the failure of the environmental movement to create a cohesive social movement that both informs and influences the political agenda consistently over time. Another failure, and one we academics should own, is the failure of sustainable development discourse to widen its discussion to embrace poverty, power and conflict. This video reminds me we have also neglected culture and how culture and social processes create our reality and shape what we see as normal. We all live in a cultural reality, our culture can make it seem quite natural to live as consumers. For example, it is ‘natural’ for us to be able to identify hundreds of brand logos while few of us can identify the majority of plants in our communities or where our waste goes. Watch this video from the Worldwatch Institute’s on how we can harness the world’s leading institutions–education, the media, business, governments, traditions, and social movements–to reorient cultures toward sustainability.
