    Why art is a tool for hope | JR

    How to find joy in climate action | Ayana Elizabeth Johnson

    We can all play a role in the climate movement by tapping into our skills, resources and networks in ways that bring us satisfaction, says climate leader Ayana Elizabeth Johnson. She suggests drawing a Venn diagram to map these questions: What are you good at? What is the work that needs doing? And what brings you joy? Where your answers intersect is where you should put your climate action effort. "Averting climate catastrophe: this is the work of our lifetimes," Johnson says.

Good job

Can’t thing of anything negative but you guys are hilarious and it feels like your talking to us not throwing facts at our faces.

Harsh But Fair ,

Unsubscribed after the Ken Chenault infomercial

TED used to be great, but the quality of their speakers has declined greatly in the last few years. They also appear to be completely uncritical of the claims that get presented, even when there are obvious inconsistencies in the guest’s narrative. I honestly should have given up on them when they removed commenting from their site, because it was clear at that point that TED was no longer interested in the exchange of ideas.

4 day work week

Does every talk have to touch on climate change and racism even when those two subjects have nothing to do with the topic. Enough of the woke mentality.
