Hundreds of hours spent exploring the art world, many meditating on heavy issues of justice, bullying and fossil fuel divestment, made me seek out and embrace the visceral, cultural aspects of the world. The excess in our everyday happens on a global scale. What we do is not good enough or enough. We feel alone and helpless.

It is time to take action.

I still have my sense of joy, but I’m not surprised by the sudden sorrow in my world. I felt alone in the fact that I was not among those advocating for children’s issues.

We knew we were talking about the same issues and with the same solutions, but the gaps in the “A,” compared to the “B,” seemed indescribable.

We felt there were not enough leadership voices in our countries and around the world who understand the problem, that are grounded in reality, and that get it.

We also knew that what we were arguing for could only come about by shifting from fossil fuels to sustainably accessible renewables. This shift could only be achieved through a broad, systemic shift, by worldwide unity and working together to create an agenda of peaceful, just societies.

I still have my sense of joy, but I’m not surprised by the sudden sorrow in my world. I felt alone in the fact that I was not among those advocating for children’s issues.
