the TALKS *
-------------------------

1) LIVE - Altruism & Resilience [Sat 13 April 10.50am - 1.30pm]
In a world ripe with natural disasters, political instabilities, claims for the end of our civilization before 2030 (by groups like collapsologues) it's easy to ask 'do our actions really matter?'
But if we change our viewpoints, our actions can show beauty instead of pain. If we can be more altruistic, by putting the needs of others and the planet before ours, can we have a more resilient world? Let's teach ourselves these habits.


2) WORK - Intrapreneurship for Good [Sat 13 April 2.20pm - 5pm]
Purpose and intrapreneurship - two words that have been buzzing around recently. But how can we actually activate them in the context of sustainability? How can we do good and do well? During this session, we will be tackling finding purpose at work by empowering employees to be the change, trends in impact investing, how companies and individuals can work together to tackle and solve sustainability issues.

 

3) CONSUME - Slowing down! [Sun 14 April 10.50am - 1.30pm]
The perpetual pressure on growth in a world that has finite resources is impossible. Can we slow down growth to speed up recovery? How can we find ways to use what already exists?
From shifting 'the Asian dream', to things we have forgotten (or don't know) about sustainability to alternative proteins and the plant-based revolution - this session calls for paradigm shifts in thinking and acting.

 

4) TRAVEL - Out(inn)er Exploration [Sun 14 April 2.20pm - 5pm]
Travel - a way to escape, to discover who you are, or maybe remember who you were. In this session we will dive into exploring outside to rediscover inside, going back to basics and our inner nature, building the eco(resort) dream and lightening your footprints.
