I've seen one suggestion in this conversation that has since been removed (feel free to bring it up again if you like ;)),
Thank you for the kindness, @Factotum . Both for giving me the green light to re-post as well as for respecting my privacy should I choose not to. I sometimes will post something and then doubt it’s merits and delete it.
The below may be rubbish, but if it facilitates further conversation on your original request for practical steps to take, then it’s served it’s purpose.
We need to share that vision with others, bring them to our cause and then make it happen. In short - we need a social movement. -@DrJamesDyke
Bringing people to our cause, I think, is one of the things that @Factotum would like to do. So I’m going to suggest one specific thing anyone can do this month to make a difference.
Let’s focus on Memorial Day Weekend, when people will be sharing a meal with family or friends.
If you normally eat meat at this outings, do something different and only eat vegetarian.
If friends or family ask why you’re not eating the hamburgers/steak, tell them that you’re trying to cut back on your beef consumption.
It doesn’t sound judgmental, like “I’m trying to save the planet”.
If someone wants to know why you’re cutting back on beef, be prepared to share information that you think would help them to make an informed decision.
Obviously, you need to know your audience: you don’t want to end up offending someone, but I wouldn’t shy away from a spirited debate if the person can disagree without being disagreeable.
What we’ve learned from the anti-vaxxer discussions on Cake is that people often form their beliefs based on the opinions of family and friends.
My two cents anyway, FWIW.
