Social Capital and Network Formation

When I started my social capital research over four years ago, my purpose was to try and discover how to use network formation before a crisis to try and mobilize action around environmental issues. We humans are an odd species, in spite of our language, our ability to predict, we seem to respond best to crisis, especially when we can’t see, feel or smell them until it is too late, climate change being one of the big ones. This video is a wonderful in terms of explaining how network formation could be used strategically for social change. It also relates to my theme of how to communicate in a meaningful way, what is happening to our world. I would very much appreciate your ideas on how to advance this as a meaningful strategy.
