Wonderful to see this AMED group on Sustainability. I am gradually getting back into writing and thought this blog might be of interest. Co-authored with a colleague who is also passionate about the #ciruclareconomy and how effective teams can be part of the solutions. Would love to hear from members of this group who are doing work with teams to support sustainability & circular economy! What are you doing in this space?

Free to access podcast with Paul Hawken - it's 3:30 minutes in before he starts to speak! https://resources.soundstrue.com/podcast/calling-team-earth-ending-the-climate-crisis-in-one-generation

The intro reads: Paul Hawken is a world-renowned environmentalist, activist, and author. His works include Blessed Unrest, Drawdown, and Sustainable Revolution. In this episode of Insights at the Edge, Tami Simon speaks with Paul about the call to action in his newest book, Regeneration: Ending the Climate Crisis in One Generation. Paul and Tami discuss the accelerating effects of climate change and how global society might respond. Paul comments on the lack of public engagement with the situation, emphasizing that old and entrenched human behavioral patterns won’t solve the problem. Tami and Paul talk about the nature of social change, resources for everyday climate action, and the fascinating climate-shifting possibilities of the Azolla fern. Finally, they speak on the importance of staying active and joyous even when the scale of the crisis feels overwhelming

Just let me know when you're ready, and we can take iot from there.  OR you're perfectly entitled to post an Invitation yourself on the AMED Events Page. To alert people to this possibility, it sometimes helps to post something as early as possible, even if you include a provisional date.  As yoiu know, the great beauty (and also the sometime scourge) of the internat is that you can change data at will.  It woulod be reallyexciting if you could make this happen, Bruce.  Kind regards.  Bob
