Episode 8 – Karen O’Brien

Yet again a very interesting and inspiring episode of the #21for21 podcast 🚀  🌏

Karen O’Brien talks with Marco and Carola about what matters, what is equatable and what is sustainable.

  • 🎤  We are being challenged on all fronts today and it’s easy to think about what problem to prioritize, but from my perspective it is just one big problem: a relationship problem.
  • 🎤  When we start to realize that ‘how we show up in the moment’ really matters, we  can really start having a much bigger impact on the systems, the structures and the way we have organized society.
  • 🎤   We talk a lot about agency, and when I think about that, I like to see ourselves as ‘fractals’: we are the systems, we are the collective, we are not separate. 
  • 🎤  Dear Future, I am Ready, to generate quantum social change
