Theme: 'Put Up or Shut Up'
We are some of the luckiest people who've ever lived, with the incredible fortune to exist in a fascinating, fantastical, never-before-experienced age; the four corners of the world have never been closer, at no time before have resources been more readily available or accessible, our power to find and reach people is greater than ever...and yet here we stand, on the brink of a perfect storm, lost in the torrent of injustice and contempt, clamouring for answers!
The first step in solving any problem is recognising that there is one...we all look around and know things don't feel right any more and as easy as it is to point, moan, bitch and blame, it's not actually changing anything!
Reading and sharing articles, info-graphics, stats and the latest facts is a good thing, being informed is vital, but if things are ever going to get better, then there's just one simple choice to make....
You can 'Put up' or you can 'Shut the f#@k up'!
The time has come for you to decide what really matters in your world. If we want things to be different, then you have to choose what change to instigate, when to act and who you're going to work with to make it stick. It's the only way to take back your power, start restoring some degree of fairness and give our future's a chance.
Pecha Kucha Vol#17 is drawing a line in the sand, because it's not who you are underneath, but what you do that defines you...on the 12th of March, it begins.
