Stepping up to change

One of the most important skills that the government can learn to accelerate progress on climate change and sustainability is that of letting go; the system can't change itself from inside as the norming behaviours stop it doing so.

To affect real change means leaving behind the language of strategic partnerships and formal relationships, which alienate as many people than they include, to a view that's closer to an ecosystem of supporting relationships, with the appropriate levels of information and energy moving around to support each individual and organisation.

The fastest changes in the UK are happening on the edges / the boundaries of organisations where third sector knowledage and business entrepreneurship innovation can flourish. One County Council (representing an area of around 180,000 people) are about to go for a goal ogf reducing their carbon emissions by 20% in one year. By letting go, not holding on.
