Just Collapse was interviewed at the Collapse Club. Hear about how the inevitability of collapse changes the parameters of politics and activism.
A Planned Collapse. WTF? ‘Planning’ and ‘collapse’ are not normally two words that would work together. In these unprecedented times, we explain not only how they do work together but how, in combination, they redefine the parameters of political struggle and activism, and how people can begin work for a planned collapse.
As we collapse, this free online book provides examples of what action we can take collectively. Taken from academic literature, it’s about how we struggle together as the world we have depended upon contracts and decays. How will we work together as food and water systems breakdown? How can we act to secure alternate sources?
A #JustCollapse – WTF?
‘Justice has been understood as an important element of civilisational advancement and cohesion… A #JustCollapse is about achieving outcomes based on decline rather than progress but is still a means of holding together what remains, as best we can.’
Professor Emeritus Bill Rees examines the idea that climate change is a society-wide misdiagnosis of the problem faced by humans in an ever shrinking ecosphere. He explains that our predicament is the ultimately fatal condition of overshoot – using energy and the biosphere faster than these can regenerate, and polluting beyond the biosphere’s assimilative capacity.
In this wide-ranging podcast Dr. Kate Booth and Tristan Sykes talk about justice and collapse as place-based phenomenon, overshoot and the Seneca effect, collapse awareness and collapse acceptance, structural violence as collapse avoidance, among other things.
Associate Professor Simon Michaux – physicist and geologist – talks about the limits constraining an imagined energy transition. Finite minerals required for ‘renewables’ like solar and wind, do not exist in large enough quantities to enable such a transition. The number of new mines required if attempted is mind-blowing!
A great explainer for collapse denial: An interview with the legendary professor Sheldon Solomon based on his work in Terror Management Theory–how human behavior is conditioned by our awareness of mortality and the strategies we employ to cope with the fear of death.
Let’s Talk Collapse – a website packed full of resources
Join the crew at Collapse Pod as they explore the complex dimensions of collapse. The “Breaking Down: Collapse” podcast takes the complex concepts surrounding the ultimate collapse of modern industrial society and simplifies them so they’re easier to learn. 

The Nine Planetary Boundaries – an online article from the Stockholm Resilience Centre, Stockholm University. It describes the boundaries and how we are already transgressing six of these.
If we don’t talk, we won’t know, and we can’t plan: As the world hurtles into an unplanned reactive collapse, calls for eternal positivity and faith in yet-to-be-invented technologies, are precluding necessary planning and preparation. Hear from Richard Heinberg (Post Carbon Institute), Dr Kate Booth (University of Tasmania) and Tristan Sykes (Just Collapse) as they #TalkCollapse and set the groundwork for taking realistic and meaningful action commensurate with the severity of our predicament.
