The Power of Language as a driver for change
“Human beings are innate storytellers, and language is the one of the most powerful tools we have. Through it, we express thoughts, feelings and emotions, share experiences, influence others around us and generally create the frameworks and the narratives of our lives. But what happens when language with an established meaning is flipped on its head to mean something else? In an all-pervasive media scenario, how do we recognize language hijacking – and can we create our own language “hacks“ to drive the story for positive change?“
