There is a hard limit to how much of an effect lifestyle changes alone can have. https://www.theguardian.com/sustainable-business/2017/jul/10/100-fossil-fuel-companies-investors-responsible-71-global-emissions-cdp-study-climate-change
I've been trying to plan a little UK co-op hitchhiking tour, better start this week!
Will start in Glasgow and slowly make my way down south. Looking for sofas/floors to sleep on and co-ops to visit of any kind, but especially digital-y/software ones...
Would like to talk about saving food (esp. with https://karrot.world), web hosting, platform co-ops, volunteers, grassroots, open source, CoTech, social.coop, etc...
Should start in the next couple of days. Lemme know if I should swing by!

social.coop is a cooperatively-run corner of the Fediverse. The instance is democratically governed by its members, who generally share an interest in the co-op model, but topics of discussion range widely.
Our instance is supported by sliding scale contributions of $1-10/mo made via Open Collective. You must have an active Open Collective account to apply for membership; you may set one up here
