Chetan Singh Solanki | Swaraj Yatra: The Journey Towards Sustainability | Talks at Google

Chetan Singh Solanki discusses his work towards sustainability through his “Energy Swaraj” lifestyle, and the immediate actions we can take to combat climate change across the globe, drawing concepts from his book "Energy Swaraj—My Experiments with SOLAR Truth".

Educator, researcher and innovator Chetan Singh Solanki is currently on an Energy Swaraj Yatra, which includes fully living on a solar bus for 10 years. Having started in November 2020 in the wake of catastrophic climate change, and committing until 2030, the purpose is to create a public movement towards the adoption of the use of 100% solar energy. Solanki has been referred to as the “Solar Man of India” by some, while others call him the “Solar Gandhi.” Following Gandhian ideals, he coined the phrase ‘Energy Swaraj’, and to establish it globally, he founded the Energy Swaraj Foundation (ESF). Solanki has also led major solar projects at IIT Bombay, including his SoULS project, in which he provided clean, efficient, affordable and reliable energy for 7.5 million families.

Solanki has been the recipient of many awards and accolades, including but not limited to: the Prime Minister’s Innovation Award for his SoULS project, the first prize in the Solar Chulha Design Challenge by ONGC, and three Guinness World Records. He is the Chairman of the committee of the Central Board of Secondary Education and a member of the National Focus Group on Environmental Education. He is the author of 7 books, has published over 100 research papers internationally and has 4 U.S. patents to his credit.

Dr. Judith Orloff | Radical Empathy in the Workplace | Talks at Google

Judith Orloff MD, a New York Times bestselling author of "The Empath’s Survival Guide" and the upcoming “Radical Empathy," discusses how to ignite the power of empathy and intuition at work, teaching viewers how sensitive people can thrive in an insensitive world.

There is a powerful connection between your emotions, intuition, and empathy. The magic comes when you learn how to tap into each of them to access your sensitivities without going on overload or becoming drained by challenging or stressful situations at work. Learning how to keep your center and avoid burnout in all situations is important to identify emotional triggers so you can master strategies to own the moment in your interactions.

Dr. Orloff is a psychiatrist, an empath and is on the UCLA Psychiatric Clinical Faculty. She synthesizes the pearls of traditional medicine with cutting edge knowledge of intuition, empathy, and energy awareness. She also specializes in treating empaths and highly sensitive people in her private practice and does online sessions with individuals and businesses internationally. Her work has been featured in O Magazine, Forbes, Business Insider, The London Sunday Times, CNN, The Today Show, PBS, BBC and NPR.

Healthcare & Homelessness Panel at Portland City Club
Streamed live on Jan 9, 2015

Presented on January 9, 2015, Healthcare & Homelessness

Panelists: Crista Gardner, Chair of the Research Committee on Health Care and Homelessness; David Labby, Medical Director at Health Share Oregon; Leo Rhodes, Vice Chair of the Committee on Health Care and Homelessness, and board member of Street Roots; Rachel Solotaroff, Medical Director at Central City Concern.

How can the maximum health benefit for the homeless population of Multnomah County be achieved from health care reform and expansion of the Oregon Health Plan? Homelessness remains a complex public health challenge. For too many individuals, the relentless struggle for safety and stability overshadows health needs. Common illnesses are allowed to progress, and minor injuries fester until they become emergencies. Challenges in caring for those experiencing homelessness reveal deep fault lines in our current health care system. This forum will discuss City Club's newly released report on health care and homelessness, and the issues we are facing as a community.
