The National Sustainability in Business Conference will be held in Brisbane next week from the 23-24 March 2017.
Mr John O’Brien, Managing Director at Australian CleanTech joins us next week to discuss ‘The Visions 2100 Project: Recalibrating Environmental Communications through Positive Storytelling’.
Visions can mobilise communities, countries and global networks to deliver extraordinary outcomes. The human race can do extraordinary things when it needs to. With the right motivation, humans can win unwinnable wars, put men on the moon, build pyramids or create atomic bombs.
However, the complex issue of climate change is one that our race is struggling to address. The solutions are not beyond us in any way. Technological solutions exist, scientific knowledge is plentiful, the world can afford the transition but still significant action eludes us. The complexity of climate change is now in the psychology of change.
The human brain is hard wired to react to imminent threats. Telling most people of an impending catastrophe in 20 years will over no impact on current behaviours.
Visions 2100 holds stories from some of the world’s leading environmental thinkers and influencers. The eighty short visions come from authors including Mary Robinson, Christiana Figueres, Bill McKibben and many others. These are the people who are shaping your future world. Their visions tell what they want to see in their future. What future do you want?
The National Sustainability Conference themed ‘Renewables – Markets – Innovation – Opportunities – Capital’ will address the need for sustainable business practices, and what this means in today’s ever-changing world.
The conference will update delegates on a range of effective sustainable business practises including Renewable Energy and Carbon initiatives. We will examine Governments’ sustainability and business funding plans. Join us and discover new business opportunities and trends in the sector along with the findings of recent research.
