Silence the World: 365ideas4change Number 52

There are many inspirational talks, speakers, and video clips available these days. The one I’d like to share today, is Severn Cullis-Suzuki, in 1992. Twenty three years on, her speech remains heart-wrenching. I find it distinctly hopeful, in that a young person had the courage to stand up and speak out. We all need this level of courage. No matter how often I watch it, her speech still gives me goosebumps.

With training in environmental science, I facilitate 'naked conversations' about sustainable wellbeing. Using facilitation techniques, systems thinking, art, music, writing, movement and photography, we explore the active creation of our uniqueness - personal and collective, as individuals, organisations and society - and our relationships with others, with sustainable wellbeing, and with genuine happiness. This journey of creation is a journey of Love. And fun.
