26 Voices for Change is an anthology of Cornish writers brought together under the general theme of climate change. Many of the writers have contributed new work, written or developed between the period of the 2021 G7 'summit' of world 'leaders' held at Carbis Bay, Penwith, Cornwall in June and the COP 26 'summit' of world 'leaders' in Glasgow, in November. While the world and its various authorities grapple with the complexities of uniting in action together as nation states, the planet has its own way of dealing with such crises.
Our collective representative Governments seem dwarfed by the scale of action required. Sometimes they appear inadequate in their limited power and influence. They are often distracted by short term electoral priorities, or simply in awe of profitability over sustainability. The danger is that a negative legacy may be all that history will make of our time. A legacy of indecisiveness, and an inability to consider that our industrious human ingenuity masks deeper, more dangerous flaws. We have modernised and built a human architecture on the flimsiest of foundations.
