Jared Spool 'We will run out of things. We will run out of time.'

World Wide Waste with Gerry McGovern

This episode was brought to you by https://www.thisisdoing.com - learn new skills in Design & Innovation via live online classrooms with the worlds best trainers Climate change is not seen by most as an immediate crisis, so we don’t act with urgency. The digital world is fairly blind to what needs to be done because in digital design we don’t think deep, broad and wide enough. Jared challenges us to think longer and broader and deeper, to think more connectedly on an earth experience level. We must rise to this impending global threat because if we don’t we condemn future generations to sink in a world we—us, our generation—have wasted. https://gerrymcgovern.com/books/world-wide-waste/ https://twitter.com/jmspool More from This is HCD https://linktr.ee/thisishcd Join our Slack community / https://www.thisishcd.com/community/join/ Join our newsletter / https://www.thisishcd.com/community/subscribe-to-our-fortnightly-newsletter/ See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
