Sometimes the best way to change something that is deeply embedded in our daily lives is simply to call attention to it, to make people aware that the problem exists.
A great example of this is the campaign against everyday sexism, which has gained huge traction on social media as people call attention to instances of sexism.
If every small example is highlighted, people realise that this isn’t just ‘snowflake’ millennials being oversensitive – it’s an embedded cultural problem.
Inspired by Everyday Sexism, the Twitter account @EverydayDenial is collecting and sharing examples of people calling out everyday denial of climate change and the issues that cause it.
Examples already tweeted include: ‘The referendum to keep Berlin’s Tegel airport open is a case of #dailyclimatedenial’.
Another is, ‘Celebrating a new COAL MINE? Wft. Hey, let’s revive the abacus while we’re at it #DailyClimateDenial.
