Coffee Break Video: The Antidote to Apathy

Image of Apathy SayingCan community apathy can be overcome? Have you ever wondered why people are willing to argue national politics until they’re blue (or red!) in the face, but won’t take 30 minutes out of their day to participate in local community issues? Do people simply not care?

If you’re looking to have an impact in your community and encourage others to do the same, be sure to check out this excellent TED Talk video featuring Canadian Dave Meslin:

“Local politics — schools, zoning, council elections — hit us where we live. So why don’t more of us actually get involved? Is it apathy? Dave Meslin says no. He identifies 7 barriers that keep us from taking part in our communities, even when we truly care.”

This video will help you see apathy and the origin of apathy in a new way. Better yet, it will inspire you on ways you might make a change in your local community.
