GOOD NEWS ! finally the broader thinking is picked up. I will send Owen this blog and so maybe we can discuss a wider Use and Meaning of the word “Mindprint” and maybe have him include next time also “handprints” !
His theme is very close to me – we discussed in Geneva with his collegues from WWF and many others around the GYC conferences in Geneva, so it looks like kindred thinking and wording is comming up.
I recommend his lecture very much but regarding lifestyles, diets, ways of thinking and acting collectively much more is already on the road, even more than presented by the Sustainable Consumption Institute, which fully resonnate with. It is good that we finally adress values and how they connect on the suface and in the deep.
So I will also include the link to our SURVIVAL ACADEMY “CopenVegan“ performances and event in Copenhagen at the UN Climate COP15. So I feel we should not talk about a failure of Copenhagen, but of how we engage all stakeholder, how we exercise the International Conferencing and Convention Circus, with some do only their “conference hopping” avoiding to listen and share “handprints” and “mindprints” of others….
But fist, enjoy the video:
I can also recommed this as we have to do some more “mindreading” soon ! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED !!
