‘You must go on, I can’t go on, I’ll go on.’ – Samuel Beckett, The Unnamable (1954). Many of us are overwhelmed and exhausted by the struggles and changes taking place in our world. In this talk, we will explore some thoughts about collective fatigue and how we respond to the pressures and stresses of social change. In particular, we will look at how technology and social media has accelerated change and increased the pressure to perform for one another. We will conclude with a hopeful call for sustainable ways we can care for ourselves and one another.
