Do we have a right to be hopeful? With political and ecological fires raging all around, is it irresponsible to imagine a future world radically better than our own? A world without prisons? Of beautiful, green public housing? Of buried border walls? Of healed ecosystems? A world where governments fear the people instead of the other way around?
“A Message From the Future II: The Years of Repair” is an animated short film that dares to dream of a future in which 2020 is a historic turning point, where the lessons of the Covid-19 pandemic and global uprisings against racism drive us to build back a better society in which no one is sacrificed and every one is essential.
The film is a sequel to the 2019 Emmy-nominated short film “A Message From the Future” with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and features the art of Molly Crabapple, with the political storytelling of Naomi Klein, Avi Lewis, and Opal Tometi. The cast of narrators from around the world includes Tometi, Emma Thompson, Gael García Bernal, and the Nigerian poet and activist Nnimmo Bassey.

What if we actually pulled off a Green New Deal? What would the future look like? The Intercept presents a film narrated by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and illustrated by Molly Crabapple.
Set a couple of decades from now, the film is a flat-out rejection of the idea that a dystopian future is a foregone conclusion. Instead, it offers a thought experiment: What if we decided not to drive off the climate cliff? What if we chose to radically change course and save both our habitat and ourselves?
We realized that the biggest obstacle to the kind of transformative change the Green New Deal envisions is overcoming the skepticism that humanity could ever pull off something at this scale and speed. That’s the message we’ve been hearing from the “serious” center for four months straight: that it’s too big, too ambitious, that our Twitter-addled brains are incapable of it, and that we are destined to just watch walruses fall to their deaths on Netflix until it’s too late.
This film flips the script. It’s about how, in the nick of time, a critical mass of humanity in the largest economy on earth came to believe that we were actually worth saving. Because, as Ocasio-Cortez says in the film, our future has not been written yet, and “we can be whatever we have the courage to see.”

Changing the Rules - Jojo Mehta in conversation with Jonathon Porritt
Jojo Mehta, co-founder of the Stop Ecocide campaign, in conversation with renowned veteran environmentalist and author Jonathon Porritt (whose new book Hope in Hell comes out this month) on World Environment Day 2020. Jonathon brings the wisdom and understanding of decades addressing the environmental and climate crisis at NGO and government level, while Jojo has applied her activism, communication and leadership experience to growing the legacy of her long-term working partner and friend, the visionary lawyer the late Polly Higgins. From criminal law to state policy to everyday action, this is a frank yet fundamentally optimistic dialogue on the rules we must change to address - and transform - the world we face.

Future of Sustainability 2020: How can we harness the radical disruption presented by the COVID-19 crisis to drive a truly sustainable, just and resilient future?
This webinar took place on 8 July 2020.
The COVID-19 crisis is having a devastating impact – both in terms of lives lost and economic disruption. At Forum for the Future, we believe that it would be tragic to go back to yesterday’s “business-as-usual”; moments of radical disruption like this provide unprecedented opportunities to reinvent the future. We are therefore calling for business, governments, civil society, and communities to seize this moment in helping to deliver a more just, sustainable, and resilient world.
Panelists: Host - Dr Sally Uren, Chief Executive Officer, Forum for the Future
Co-host - Hannah Pathak, Director of UK and Europe, Forum for the Future
Leslie Johnston, Chief Executive Officer, Laudes Foundation
Nick Cliffe, Deputy Challenge Director, Innovate UK

The world is poorly designed. But copying nature helps. Biomimicry design, explained with 99% Invisible. Check them out here. 99% Invisible is an independently produced radio show created by Roman Mars that focuses on design and architecture. It began as a collaborative project between San Francisco public radio station KALW and the American Institute of Architects in San Francisco.

In this Our Changing Climate environmental video essay, I look at biomimicry. Specifically how biomimicry can not only lead to nature-inspired design for architecture and materials, but also for better relationships, activism, and communities. I draw upon adrienne maree brown's emergent strategy in order to show that nature and the environment can show us how to best navigate a complicated social world.

U.S. Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Julián Castro talks about how HUD helps rebuild communities after natural disasters. After Hurricane Sandy, HUD shifted from just helping communities rebuild the way they were before, to showing communities how to rebuild to be resilient for the future. "Our hope is that through the investments that we're making now and the example that these communities that are participating in Rebuild By Design in the National Disaster Resilience Competition the example that they're setting will set best practices that are then adopted by states throughout our country," said Secretary Castro.
