Arguing that consumerism is the main engine driving climate change, Somebody Else’s Problem calls for a radical change in how we think about, design, make and use everyday products and services. It challenges us to look again at systems, norms and values, and their cumulative role in our environmental crisis.

Dengan berdebat bahwa konsumerisme adalah mesin utama yang mendorong perubahan iklim, Somebody Else’s Problem menyerukan perubahan radikal dalam cara kita memikirkan, merancang, membuat, dan menggunakan produk dan layanan sehari-hari. Ini menantang kita untuk melihat kembali sistem, norma dan nilai, dan peran kumulatif mereka dalam krisis lingkungan kita.
