To speak of change today conjures up images of high-tech gadgetry and low carbon infrastructures pulled together towards energy transitions. Change might be the latest phone, or a new app to address an old problem. Political change may be tweaking regulations, amending legislation, making bad law a bit less bad.

But living towards transformation may mean something else, something both harder to pin down and yet much more vital. Not merely a list of pressing environmental, social, economic goals, but living that vivifies us collectively. Not simply a matter of targets to meet by 2030 or 2050, but more deeply a way of living democracy, a way of learning to be political that is already ecological, of fundamentally unsettling colonial and extractive ways while working on alternatives, of radically opening up flourishing ways of being for our communities in the face of climate crisis.
