Podcast – Ode to a Coffee Cup

“Youth across the world are putting their political effort into ‘being the change they want to see in the world’ – a phrase that is misattributed to Gandhi.”

“The Occupy Movement is a good example. Rather than spending time petitioning politicians, Occupy activists sought to build an ideal society – a ‘better tomorrow’ – realised through such activities as free yoga classes, lectures, and democratic debates. Scholars refer to this as ‘prefigurative politics’: the channelling of political energy into performing now one’s vision of a better world.” – Professor Craig Jeffrey
