Fridays for Future
Janine O’Keeffe is an Australian born Swede organising FridaysforFuture.org
to confront the Climate Breakdown we are seeing. Her interests are democratic
societal change and how electronics including social media, internet telephony
and digital decision making systems can facilitate and hamper this change.
The Climate Breakdown obvious already includes fire
tornadoes, flash flooding, drought, reduction of ice and escaping methane.
These issues are both confronting and overwhelming for any individual. The
striking process appears to be healing individuals’ climate anxiety. She believes,
connectedness to other individuals is key. It is less frightening to examine
the issues, and undertake actions and solutions as a group.
