I saw David Ritter (Greenpeace CEO) speak at the GLAMSLAM miniconf last year and he exhorted the audience to use our 'GLAM power as clean energy' - to tell new + different + better stories, to help communities create and share new stories too, and to record those stories for all. It's a great listen https://podcasts.apple.com/au/podcast/david-ritter-on-glam-power-as-clean-energy/id1276048279?i=1000434574758 #reset
The first step to building a better world is imagining that such a world is possible. I think GLAM institutions are ideally placed to push boundaries and stretch imaginations, while also walking the walk re. sustainable energy use, fair treatment + unionisation of staff, holistic care for the communities that use them #reset
