Through workshops, mentoring and hands-on training, students learned how to earn money, partner with international communities, and run a successful Nourish Chapter on their campuses.
Across the globe, we are seeing how a growing range of disasters are posing still more risks to our current way of living
The question is whether humans can harness the power of trust to envision and realize a shared fate that values each individual equally, and which honors other life on earth. Our time is up. It is time to trust!
Despite the growing investments made today towards external CSR communication, there has been relatively little progress made in evolving the mindset and behaviors beyond the niche to the masses.
Most of us know a sustainabilly. The urban pickle canner, the suburban farmer, the home brewer, and the off-the-grid craftsman come to mind. However, I am finding that the term sustainabilly needs a bit of refinement in our modern age of specialization.
In my view, investing in women -- or investing in companies that are committed to gender equality and women's leadership -- is just such a strategy. Moreover, there is a growing body of evidence to suggest that it is a smart investment strategy:
How unusual has the weather been? No one event is "caused" by climate change, but global warming, which is predicted to increase unusual, extreme weather, is having a daily effect on weather, worldwide.
Overwhelmingly, these talented fellows represent a growing commitment to fighting social issues like poverty, terrorism, infrastructural collapse, and beyond -- through straightforward, effective means. I was lucky to learn from two of them, and share their stories here.
A uniform filter applied to multiple urban scenes can easily warp time and location, and obscure -- yet somehow enhance -- the reality of place.
When you have that sense of connection and infinite permeability, that it is one system in which everything shares a body, then you have to look at climate change as something that's happening for us, not to us. It's a transformation that transforms everything, and it's a gift.
If a company wanted to attract the best and the brightest and retain that talent, they would have to anchor corporate social responsibility and sustainability in all their business processes.
Inside, 23 palpably excited scientists introduce themselves and rattle off their disciplines. Uh oh. Is this conference going to be all about graphs, equations and incomprehensible hypotheses presented with wild enthusiasm? (Yes.)
Today, the Earth got a little hotter, and a little more crowded. How unusual has the weather been? No one event is "caused" by climate change, but global warming, which is predicted to increase unusual, extreme weather, is having a daily effect on weather, worldwide.
The domination, killing, destruction, increased work and effort of modern society are not the hallmarks of intelligence, but rather stupidity. How can we use the 10% of our mental capacity more intelligently and effectively? Here are a few ideas:
One solution, as it came out of from the summit and should be further strengthened, tested, discussed and implemented in other world regions is public-private partnerships.
The sustainability perspective integrates economic growth, environmental protection and public health. I am confident that New York City's mayor and New York State's governor understand this. However, I see little evidence that they have integrated this way of thinking into their approach to politics, policy and governance.
