Tipping points.

    A tipping point refers to a small change making a huge difference in the way our society is organized, causing a major shift to our daily lives. Mostly used to address environmental related issues, tipping points should be seen as having the potential of critical social changes as well, impacting governance, solidarity, or sense of care. Leading to irreversible consequences, their outcome is in theory positive or negative. Though, the fundamental threats and challenges to (human) nature are so high that the dominant view emphasizes our inability to perceive the disruptions driven by the Anthropocene.
