Shuffle the Futures

Find the gaps in the present – because that is where the future lies

The world may appear as an intractable wall of power in the face of which meaningful climate action might appear hopeless; but even in the most trenchant conditions there are fissures. Look for them and open them up. The future is not a script to be written from scratch: it exists in these gaps in the present, where new formations need appreciation and support to thrive. These gaps might not always be obvious, might be obfuscated by other things, but hold hope for other futures. Focus on finding those sites—alternatives and other ways that are edited out of the histories written by dominant institutions—in order to find a future.
