Storytelling and Sustainability

By Asitha Jayawardena

Storytelling is the most effective way of changing our behaviours so that the future will be sustainable for us, the animals we live with and the planet Earth.

Some of the stories I wrote in 2014 and beyond are given below, including the interviews with Mother Nature, letters to a group of aliens who are doing research on the planet Earth, systems thinking, the dependability on ‘Growth vs. Earth’ Café and Lord Future’s ideas, including Brexit. Enjoy!
