Psychological research shows that positive psychology helps build permanent changes in brain connections and consequent behaviours. This is the missing element in climate change communications: rather than scaring people into action, we must instead attract people to build a better world for themselves and their grandchildren. The VISIONS 2100 Project has assembled 80 stories of positive futures – visions – from the world’s leading environmental thinkers. This session will introduce the theory behind the project, hear some of these inspirational stories from the authors, and explain how you can get involved.
For the past 25 years, the GLOBE™ Series has served as the nexus for global networking and leadership on the business of the environment.
GLOBE 2016 Conference & Innovation Expo (GLOBE 2016), is the next GLOBE event within the iconic GLOBE Series, North America’s largest and longest-running Conference and Exposition series dedicated to business innovation for the planet. A world-leading sustainability GLOBE Conference coupled with an exciting GLOBE Innovation Exposition, GLOBE™ is about relationship building to fuel your business. It’s about thinking outside the box. It’s where leaders come to devise winning strategies to conserve resources, ignite innovation, and develop ideas and partnerships that help them be more resilient, more efficient, and reduce risk.
Taking place every two years in Vancouver, Canada, GLOBE draws the ‘best and brightest’ of the international sustainable business community, making it an unsurpassed forum for learning and networking.
With an exciting vibe and an international flair, GLOBE is not only the undisputed thought leader worldwide, it’s where future markets are shaped, and public policy is fostered. It’s where innovators come and launch new ideas. Where Corporate America finds solutions. It is where you can begin lasting, high quality relationships that will enhance your business long into the future.
For 2016, we’ve sharpened our scope, strengthened our leadership tea
m, and doubled down on our commitment to doing more of what GLOBE does best: Catalyzing collaborations between “unusual suspects” both on and off the stage
