We have to take responsibility for the future. Faced with enormous mountains of trash, cruel factory farming, overproduction, exploding consumption of natural resources and a failure to sustainably recycle them, it has become painfully obvious that we must finally venture from our chosen path. The trickiest thing here is how these issues often remain invisible, as when garbage is shipped off to far-away lands, for instance, or other countries' resources are exploited for the benefit of those who already enjoy an extremely high standard of living. We, as individuals, but especially the cities, countries and transnational organisations that drive this dynamic, have the power to make decisions and act to uncover structural injustices, to change them, and thus alter the state of the planet.
