What is

Mine to Do?

 

This page accompanies Kimberley Hare’s book called “What is Mine to Do – and Who can I do it with?” published June 2024.

It contains a list of organisations working on the meta-crisis – including climate and ecological breakdown.  It is in alphabetical order.  Many of these organisations would welcome your energy and resourcefulness – get involved!

People Get Real

Website: https://peoplegetreal.org/

People Get Real was established in June 2023 by former journalist and communications adviser Marc Lopatin, and chartered management accountant and sustainability consultant Helena Farstad. We met one another while supporting the UK-based Climate Majority Project, where much of the thinking behind People Get Real was incubated.

As deep critics of the existing mainstream narrative on climate action, we use audience insight and campaign methods to help shift the existing consensus which we argue stands in the way of meaningful action for the betterment of all. Our aim is to agitate for a collective response to climate breakdown and ecological destruction, capable of limiting the danger currently posed to civilisation. We understand this might be a difficult truth for scientists, campaigners, business leaders and politicians, to accept. But refusing to publicly call time on implausible climate targets, is costing the world precious response time to the environmental crisis.

It is why, in our view, widespread public concern does not extend to anything like a citizen-led insistence that governments honour the multilateral climate targets they signed up to.

Fortunately, the results of a nationally representative survey, that we commissioned from Ipsos in September 2023, offers hope going forwards. As Sir Bob Watson says in his foreword to our report, the poll findings read like a vote of no confidence in our collective response to climate breakdown.  You can download the full report from the website.
