作為一名成熟的人, 你可以為這個世界做什麼樣的改變?

(English below)

我們每一個人都不只是消費者,我們所能做的事,遠比只是購買東西還要多的多。我們的生活也不是只侷限於自身的生活,我們為自己做的決定,影響的層面遠超過我們的生活。
我們都是成人,我們為生活所做的決定,會影響我們周遭的人,影響我們的社區。
我們都在工作,我們工作中所做的決策,會影響我們的經濟,影響我們的社會,雖然只有小小的部份。


在你的能力範圍,你可以──

──幫助環境。垃圾減量,搜尋耐用的好產品。好好安排你的生活,讓你需要的東西剛剛好,讓你不需要的東西愈來愈少。不要丟掉你不需要的東西,而是拿去送給別人。盡量吃優質有營養的食物。

──幫助改善我們的經濟系統。尋找價值交易的其他方式,確保在交易過程中的所有相關人,包括生產者、販售者與使用者,都取得他們所需的價值。確保生產者得到他們所付出勞力的公平價值。

──幫助改善我們的學校系統。與教師及其他父母談談,什麼可行、什麼不可行。談談孩子、家長與老師真正希望的是什麼。談談什麼樣的改變是可行的正向改變。

──幫助改善族群問題、性別偏見。看看和你不一樣的人,視他們為一般人,一般人會有他們擔心的事、他們的喜好、他們有喜怒、他們有家人與朋友、他們有關心他們的人,和你沒什麼不同。如果我們視每個人為真正的人,我們便能尊重彼此,這也是我們大家應當得到對待。

──幫助改變受限的社會標準。以最真實的自己迎向這個世界。給別人勇氣袒呈最真的自己。你將會看到這個世界因著這麼多元、這麼多另人不可思議的真實個人而閃閃發光。

你不需要做所有的事情。你甚至什麼事都不用做。但是如果你看到可以改變的機會,而付諸行動,你不僅幫助了你自己,你也幫助了所有人,這是值得一做的事!
我們都有能力改變世界,儘管很小。許多人的小小改變,可以匯聚成巨大的改變,世界性的改變。一起來吧!我們可以愈做愈好.




What changes can you as a mature person make in the world?

We are not just consumers. We do much more than just buy things.
Our lives are not just personal. The decisions we make for ourselves have an effect far beyond our own lives.
Each of us is an adult, and we we make adult decisions in our lives, and these have effect on the people around us, and in the communities around us.
Each of us has a job, and the decisions we make in that job have an effect in the economy and society around us, even if only in very small ways.

In your capacity as a working adult, you can−−

−−help the environment. Reduce waste. Use quality things that last. Arrange your life so that you have enough of what you need and less of what you don't. Give away what you don't need instead of throwing it out. Eat quality food when you can.

−−help change our economic system. Find alternative ways to exhange value, making sure that everyone in the exchange, including producers, traders and users, gets what they need. Make sure that producers recieve fair value for their work.

−−help change our school system. Talk with teachers and other parents about what works and what doesn't work. Find out what children, parents and teachers really need. Talk about positive changes that could be made.

−−help change racism & sexism. Look at people different than you, and see them as real people just like you, people who have their own concerns, and have things that make them happy and things that make them upset, just like you. If we see each other as real people, we can treat each other with the respect each of us deserves.

−−help change restrictive social standards. Come out as your real self to the world. Give others the courage to be their authentic selves. See how the world sparkles with all the variety and amazingness of authentic human beings.


You don't have to do everything. You don't even have to do anything. But if you see an opportunity to make change and act on it, you're not only helping yourself, you're helping everybody. And that's worth doing!
