This is a teaser-video for brand-new 2021 keynote topic: SUSTAINABLE IS THE NEW PROFITABLE. GREEN IS THE NEW DIGITAL.
IMHO, the decarbonisation of our economy is the biggest challenge AND the biggest opportunity in this coming decade. This topic has been on the agenda for decades but had to first be kick-started by the Corona crisis: The radical decarbonisation of our economies and the ‘gradually, then suddenly‘ departure from the fossil-fuel era.
Wide-ranging new carbon taxes are inevitable, and so is the sudden end of the $3.5 Trillion global fossil fuel subsidy madness. During the Covid-19 crisis we have learned that being prepared for emergencies is utterly essential – and that we can compromise and collaborate if we have to. Covid-19 is a test-run for climate change.
The circular economy is the only economy we’ll have in 2030, and ‘sustainable’ is becoming the new ‘profitable’ within the next 5 years. Any company that does not understand how the global move towards decarbonisation will impact every segment of their business – from R&D to supply-chain to production to distribution to marketing to branding – will wither and shrink or fade away completely. Any individual that does not understand what this shift means as far as knowledge, skills and mindset is concerned, will quickly become dispensable.
In this talk, I explain why this tectonic shift is happening now, what it really means, and how to get behind it and prosper in this fork-in-the-road decade that’s coming up.

The national uprising ignited by the murder of George Floyd has cast a spotlight on the country’s embedded, institutional racism, including the fraught relationship between environmentalism and communities of color. Air pollution, severe weather and the economic upheaval brought on by climate change impacts black and minority communities first and worst, yet their voices are often left out of policy responses and market solutions.
How can we amplify and advocate for leaders of color in the fight against climate change? What can allies do to create a green movement that is inclusive and actively anti-racist? Join us for a conversation with Mustafa Santiago Ali, vice president of environmental justice at the National Wildlife Federation, Robert Bullard, distinguished professor of urban planning and environmental policy at Texas Southern University and winner of the 2019 Stephen Schneider Award for Outstanding Climate Science Communication, and Glynda Carr, president and CEO of Higher Heights for America.

Man-induced climate change threatens human health and ecosystems on a global scale. Various environmental and social problems like water scarcity, climate change, depletion of critical natural resources, injustice, and social inequity have been growing at a high rate over the last decade.
Despite several global meetings and ground-breaking sustainable development work by organizations like the United Nations and the World Bank, poverty is still a huge issue - over 1 billion people are still extremely poor. The economic boom has not been inclusive enough for them. On top of that, economic growth has come at the expense of our environment.
What is the way forward? Here is what we need to spur the sustainable growth the world needs.
Panel on Practical Steps to Address our City's Homeless Crisis
Homelessness is arguably the greatest humanitarian and societal emergency facing Portland. As the number of unhoused grows each year, it can feel overwhelming. But there are civic groups who are effectively tackling this problem–and who can help us carve a path forward. On Wednesday, September 22, 2021, SothWest Hills Residential League (SWHRL) held a conversation with leaders of four volunteer organizations who are taking practical steps to address our city’s homeless crisis.
*Alan Evans, formerly homeless founder and CEO of Helping Hands and Bybee Lakes Hope Center, serving homeless people who are ready to make sustainable changes to improve their lives
*Kiley Yuthas, outreach manager for Transition Projects, a leader in transitioning people from living on the streets into housing
*Laura Golino de Lovato, executive director of Northwest Pilot Project, providing housing assistance, transportation, and advocacy to low-income seniors in Multnomah County
*Toni Wallick, of Home Share Oregon, an innovative program that matches homeowners with spare room with those who are in need of housing
