Our central message was that:
Truly addressing climate change requires us to change our thinking, and move beyond a narrow, mechanistic view of issues to an interconnected style of thinking.
Lots of humans single-mindedly pursue a fossil-fuel economy to the exclusion of all other impacts: including human health, mass extinction, loss of biodiversity, climate change, racism, classism, sexism.
Material substitutions in a business-as-usual scenario isn't sufficient. We need to think outside our silos as building and design professionals and connect our work to that of other trades such as sustainable forestry, eco-agriculture and to movements for social & climate justice.
