A new Techbook features millennial’s thoughts as they trip off “E”—Econology that is.
It all started with a question: how can we build communities and economies that are socially and ecologically sustainable? That driving question was the driving force behind a new Techbook that features nearly 10 essays written by millennials who were “tripping off E” – econology that is.
Minding Climate Change: A Call to Action™ is filled with more than 30 content rich pages of thought-leadership from teens, millennials, and politically-active citizens who take the critical condition of the world serious, and are determined to develop, implement, and scale econological solutions.
Econology, a word I’ve asserted on numerous occasions that will save your life, is defined as the synthesis of sociology, economics and ecology, which can be used as the base of creating an economy that is socially and ecologically sustainable.
In an exclusive interview available only in the Techbook, Terence Muhammad, Logistical Coordinator for the globally-positioned Hip-Hop Caucus, co-signs the urgent need to break down the silos in which do-gooders operate, and instead solve problems at the boundaries of disciplines.
“Don’t make your issue a silo issue. No matter what problem you’re working on, tie it to the sustainability of our lives,” Muhammad is quoted as saying in the green, white, and yellow Techbook, which commemorates Philly’s 2014 Global Youth Service Day and features a foreword written by David Goodman, President, The Andrew Goodman Foundation, who themselves are commemorating the 50th anniversary of Freedom Summer.
Civic engagement and leveraging the vote were not buzz words or catchphrases wasted on the millennials who wrote 400 words or more in the compendium, as they intentionally penned narratives aimed at building public will for sustainable practices and policy recommendations for climate change adaptation.
“The proposal to live in a trash-free society should be investigated not only by politicians, but by scientists and econologists alike,” writes Phresh Philly Founder Rashaun “DJ Reezey” Williams, who’s affectionately known as “Captain Compost” due to his militant-style speeches about adapting to climate change and engaging in econology.
Roberto Abazoski, a member of the Phresh Philly cohort, writes:
“Everybody in Philly has a corner store. These types of local businesses have the ability to sell groceries, yet they sell junk food, which is unhealthy. Corner stores should be able to change their inventory and expect people to buy from them. Not only does this save gas, but it also improves the local economy, allows for people to eat healthier in their small communities, and reduces the amount of plastic chips bags and snacks wrappers being thrown in the trash.”
In an program where he helps build navy engines with actual navy officers, Jermal Langley, who’s one of six Phresh Philly members dressed for all climates on the front cover of the Techbook, wrote:
“If we can find a way to make electrically powered engines run faster and more efficiently, we as a society can charge our cars opposed to fueling them through gasoline. We can place charging centers in parking spaces at supermarkets, powered by the environmental activity that takes place regardless of whether or not we capture that untapped free flowing energy. Our cars already have multiple computers in them, so we’re moving in the direction of using more chargeable technology anyway. Why not integrate this kind of technology completely?”
It’s impossible to consume this much thought-leadership without having a few thoughts and/or questions of your own. No matter what question or thought comes to mind though, by time you get to the last colorful page of Minding Climate Change: A Call to Action, you, too, will ask: how can we build communities and economies that are socially and ecologically sustainable?
