World-renowned sustainability expert, Hunter Lovins, reminds us that
a world facing climate change, deteriorating eco-systems and peak oil
is a challenging place to do business or to make a life in. She insists
that solutions to these problems do exist and can be implemented in ways
that create greater prosperity, improve local and national security and
present opportunities for each of us to find greater meaning in our lives.
The US non-profit organisation she heads, Natural Capitalism Solutions
Inc, helps communities, companies and countries to gain competitive advantage,
both now and far into the future. She likes to help everyone see how they
can make a positive difference.
Hunter is a catalyst who will be able to expose us to some radical international
thinking , but is us who must do all the work after she leaves. She will
be supported in each session by a panel of local people. This is made
up of proactive youth working in both sustainability and enterprise development
areas, as well as some local people whose work relates to the topic.
My name is Hatata and we need you to help us with NZ's biggest roundup.
Herd your parents, family, grandparents, teachers, friends, businessmen, farmers, developers, doctors, builders, engineers, lawyers, architects, researchers, judges, professors, bankers, mayors, councilors, politicians and all. We need them all working alongside us to help grow the kind of world that we would like to leave for all our future grandchildrens.
Our partner Hunter told us stories from around the planet to get us thinking about what we are doing to it. We can all share ideas to help us do things right now to make a difference.
