Book Launch: "You Matter More Than You Think"

In a world characterized by rapid and serious climate change and loss of biodiversity it is time to challenge established truths and assumptions and take the time to explore more deeply the tasks we are faced with. How can we make changes that both answer the problems we are faced with and creates better societies and lives for everyone?

We invite you to join us for the launch of Karen O'Brien's new book You Matter More Than You Think.

In her new book You Matter More Than You Think author and professor Karen O'Brien explores how and why each of us matter more than we think in the work to create a just and sustainable future. Inspired by the discoveries of quantum physics that the physical world is different to what we might believe, she introduces a radically different way to think about climate change and societal change. Are we underestimating our collective capacity for creating change?

Are you ready to be challenged to think differently about saving the climate and the significance of people? Are you curious about whether we might have missed something in our haste to solve environmental challenges?

Welcome to the launch of You Matter More Than You Think 19:00, 16th of November 2021. We invite you to a explorative and meaningful dialogue about the message of the book, and a celebration of people's capacity for creating change. In this dialogue you will encounter author Karen O'Brien and her conversation partners Tone Bjordam (artist), Lisa Cooper (Catalysts Norway; social entrepreneur; board leader; enthusiast for diversity, youth and system change) and Martin Skadal (World Saving Hustle).  

We will also be treated to beautiful singing by Kvindelige Studenters Sangforening.

The conversation will be carried out in Norwegian and English. The event is free but requires registration.

The event is organized by the Department of Sociology and Human Geography and cChange.
