One of our founders and facilitators, Duncan Pritchard recently took part in a locally organised Ted-X event in Salt Rock. In this talk he shares his passion for the oceans and the need to see our oceans in a new light. The marine wilderness experience is a key part of our program. There are few places quite as powerful and entrenched in the human psyche as the ocean. Everyone loves the beach but not everyone has a look to see what lies beneath.
Do you ever feel that exercising in a gym just doesn’t compare to a hike, a trail run or a swim in the sea? An indoor activity doesn’t leave me feeling invigorated and energised as much as an outdoor activity does. I thought this was a matter of personal preference until reading about research that proves that outdoor activities really are better for you!
For the business community the best question is whether we can be certain that climate change presents a substantial risk, a risk that will have a profound impact on society and the economy? To this the answer is clearly "YES".
Travel, seeing new places, meeting new people is a powerful tool for a better world. It represents the greatest movement of wealth from the rich to the poor in the history of our world, it breaks down stereotypes. It helps us realise that we are all connected, we are all ONE. Be the change. We just love the power of this video clip from the UN Global Sustainable Development Goals Facebook Page (it's a cool page, go check it out)
Is it vaguely possible for explaining “Carbon Footprints” to be fun and exciting? I doubt it. This is not exactly a fun and exciting topic, but it is possibly the most important issue our planet and our global economies have ever faced. So here is the deal, its an important concept and considering that you’re probably already paying some sort of Carbon tax on the car you drive, your overseas flights and by 2015, some level of Carbon tax will probably find its way onto the price tag of almost everything you purchase.
