I've recently been following author, activist and organizer Adrienne Maree Brown's work. She came to my attention a few months ago, and I am currently really enjoying and feeling inspired by her book "Emergent Strategy". Her main premise is that collaboration and cooperation can change the world because as we shift our own small circles we impact the larger systems. She presents many parallels with nature and how we can look to nature as a teacher to learn how we relate to each other.
Here is a fabulous interview with Adrienne Maree Brown that was done by Johnathan Van Nass on his podcast, "Getting Curious". https://www.earwolf.com/episode/are-we-imagining-a-better-future-into-existence-with-adrienne-maree-brown/
