#33 Jem Bendell: Cultivating a New Ethos

What Could Possibly Go Right?

Dr. Jem Bendell is the Founder of the Deep Adaptation Forum and a Professor of Sustainability Leadership with the University of Cumbria. He works as a researcher, educator, and advisor on social and organizational change, with over 25 years of experience in sustainable development initiatives in over 20 countries. In 2018, he authored the viral Deep Adaptation paper, downloaded around a million times.Jem addresses the question of “What Could Possibly Go Right?” with thoughts including:That “people are changing their lives because of their anticipation of collapse, to relate more openly and wanting to do what's right, come what may.”That “holding space for each other and our difficult emotions has led to a new quality of engagement.” That Deep Adaptation invites people into a different way of talking about crisis response and emotions - fostering compassion, curiosity, and respect.That sustainable development may be a delusion, but we can ready ourselves for societal disruption to help others with our skills and networks.ResourcesAuroville intentional community, southern IndiaBook: “How Everything Can Collapse” by Momentum InstitutePaper: Deep Adaptation by Jem BendellInternational Scholars Warning on Societal Disruption and CollapseConnect with JemWebsite // Deep Adaptation Forum // Twitter // Facebook group Join our Patreon Community to receive bonus conversations with guests and "backstage" conversations between Vicki and other podcast hosts.Follow WCPGR on Social MediaFacebook // Twitter // InstagramLearn moreSupport the show (https://www.patreon.com/vickirobin)
