As Caroline Fiennes notes (in my post yesterday) if we want to connect, educate or inspire we cannot tell people about problems and “when they don’t listen or change their behaviour… tell them again and again increasingly shrilly.”
If people don’t listen the first time, there’s a reason. Perhaps they have higher priorities or need more evidence of the problem to believe it. Maybe they don’t understand the real consequences of a problem or how it relates to them. Sometimes people are just fed up with being told what to do.
It’s important to talk to them as individuals. relate the problem to something they are interested in or care about. put things into perspective. Always tell the truth.
Global Cool is a website dedicated to communicating eco problems through celebrities, fashion, music, travel, sport and everything else society loves. It’s another great way to engage people with the big picture.
Fiennes says in her interview with The Ecologist:
