Libby James – The Futures Interview



?!X: What’s the Future You Choose?

LJ: A bright one.  Where people placed the importance of unity over individuality, the common good over personal gain and where no one ever settled for less.

?!X: What’s a ‘think’ to create this future?

?!X: What’s an ‘act’ to create the future you choose

LJ:  Make a list of what it is you think you can offer to the world and tick one thing off in the next week.

Here are a few suggestions:
– Find a charity to support that aligns with your values and make a donation, of time or money.
– Write a letter to your local politician about an issue you feel passionately about.
– Reduce the amount of waste you consume – Take a canvas bag to the super market.
– Join a society.
– Research your next purchase before you buy it – who makes it where does it come from?
– Smile at every stranger you see.
etc.

?!X: What’s a ‘vote’ to create the future you choose?

LJ:  Build Africa is the NGO I work for.  I love what I do and I love to get up every morning.  The organisation works to empower individuals to make a better life for themselves.  Not to give a hand out but a hand up. It is continually striving to do more and do it better and to never settle for anything less.  They have my vote and it is a privilege to be a part of it.

?!X: Future Soundtrack – What song would you take with you into the future? 

LJ: Here comes the sun – Beatles
