Annie Leonard, originator of the “Story of Stuff” series of policy videos, is using the “change the rules of the game” frame to describe her latest work.
“Just like a game, our economy was designed by people to get everybody to play by certain rules and like a game it comes with instructions telling us what the goal is,” Leonard says in a preview of The Story of Solutions, out Oct. 1. “And that goal is more.”
She adds: “Five years ago, when we made The Story of Stuff we started building a community of people who sensed that something was really wrong with this old game. We agreed there was a problem. Now it’s time to build the solutions. Solutions that won’t just change a few of the rules, but will change the entire game.”
