Who are the Black Panthers? Welcome back SDG Talkers!! Thanks for joining us for another episode of highlighting change makers and their inspirational work towards the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)! IN THIS EPISODE: Post-event thoughts about winning SDG Track 13 at UNLEASH How to work together as a team during the UNLEASH experience How to connect investors & farmers to combat climate change A big congrats to the Black Panthers - aka the winners of UNLEASH's SDG 13 Climate Action Track & one of the top 7 teams in the entire lab! We get to chat with 3 of the 5 team members: Aarushi Tripathi, Vipul Agarwal, & Nasha Cuvelier. As part of the lab's innovation process, the team had to frame a problem, ideate solutions, create a prototype and test it in just 5 days. Then they pitched their ideas to experts, and the chosen SDG Track Winners (one for each SDG) were sent to the finals. Having started out as a computer science graduate with an interest and experience in Machine Learning and Data Science, Aarushi recently found her calling in the field of public policy & development, with a focus in building sustainable solutions that use rigorously-researched evidence & centre communities. Vipul has been involved in research projects ranging from the development of a national pollution database for China, to scourging through garbage to spur waste segregation on a University level, based on positive & negative incentives. He's currently building a platform that would drive meaningful change in consumer/business behavior in the realm of carbon footprint and GHG emissions. Nasha is an environmental scientist specializing in climate change, & is the co-founder of "sustentabilidad sin fronteras". In 2015, she was chosen as the UNESCO Young Delegate for the Paris Agreement; in 2016 she was recognized as one of the 10 most influential women of the year in the country. She's held leadership positions within the private sector, but is now a consultant to international organizations such as UNDP & UNICEF. Let's get SDG Talking!!

#plugintodevin - Your Mark on the World with Devin Thorpe
Devin: What is your superpower?Cecile: I don't think it's a superpower because most people have it. Maybe we need to migrate people into exercising it, but I do think that grit might be it.Cecile Blilious has become one of the most significant players in impact investing in Israel, now leading impact and sustainability at the country's largest fund, Pitango Venture Capital. Founded by Chemi Peres, son of Israel's former president Shimon Peres, Pitango's current fund has $3 billion.“We work out of three parallel funds,” Cecile explains. “One is an early-stage fund that invests very early; two, the growth fund, which invests further than that and all the way to the IPO or exit, and a third fund that focuses on health tech, health, tech, also meaning food, anything to do with human health.”Cecile has a long history of leading impact investing in Israel. She ran the first fund focused on impact investing with a focus on tech, Impact First Investments.She officed at Pitango. “I was really embedded in their office, kind of a Trojan horse,” she says. “I joined Pitango three years ago with the idea to bring the paradigm of ESG impacts, just doing the right thing for businesses into mainstream VC.”“I built a strategy that I call the ESG to SDG continuum because it is a continuum looking at the whole picture,” Cecile says.She shared her views on ESG:All companies have to have good ESG standards because it's the right thing to do because it's the best way to manage your business. Because if you have diversity in your team, you'll have better ideas, better solution solving solutions to problems. You'll have just more opportunities. You'll have the best talent. If you think about your carbon emissions as part of your DNA in your corporate, then you will also make sure that you harm the planet less, but you also attract the best employees, and your clients will also be happy about what you do. So, ESG is like the bare minimum that everybody should do.Cecile now focuses on helping portfolio companies discover their impact and intentionally develop it.“If you can add to that the impact lens, then let's do that,” she says. “We won't force it on anyone who doesn't have it, which in this case, again, because of our DNA, would be around 30 percent of the companies, just the backbone of the Internet, making wireless faster, things that don't have any impact. But 70 percent of the companies actually do have an impact, and that's where we add the impact lens.”Cecile sees two camps she describes as impact natives who have developed their careers around impact and impact migrants, investors, entrepreneurs, and others discovering the world through this new lens. She helps entrepreneurs in the migrant camp uncover their impact, intentionally develop it and measure it, making it a central part of the business.In the process of helping companies find impact, she is often able to help them find new revenue streams from expanded markets.Over the years, she's developed a formal process. “I designed this process called impact migration, and I just take them through it. I coach the companies through it.”She challenges entrepreneurs to think about what motivated them to launch a business and remember the problems they hoped to solve. “That's when you see this aha moment. It's happened to me many times when I speak to an entrepreneur; I said, ‘okay, let me pitch you your company through my lens.'”Cecile described the process for a large portfolio company called Via. The company offers a ride-hailing app for use by transit companies as a complement to or even a replacement for buses. Designed around car-pooling in smaller vehicles than conventional city buses, the Via founders focused on the environmental impact of reducing miles driven by empty or nearly-empty public transit.Cecile helped them discover the social benefits of more efficient public transportation. Suddenly, a group of people for whom public transit didn't provide a workable solution—think 90-minute-plus commutes with multiple bus transfers—could now commute reliably in 30 minutes.Via created a map to show the difference in where public transportation could help people get within 30 minutes before and after via, showing the employers, hospitals, schools, universities, parks and malls that became accessible, affordable and efficient.“We didn't change anything about the model or the product. We just added a layer that wasn't there before,” Cecile says.Throughout her career, Cecile has employed grit as a superpower to help her accomplish important things.How to Develop Grit As a SuperpowerCecile defines grit this way:The ability to stick to something that you believe is true and just keep going and keep doing it, even though most times it's hard because people either don't buy into it, they don't believe you, or they think that you're crazy or that you're moving too fast. So, the ability to achieve things I think has been very much attributed to the fact that I have that superpower if you will.Cecile spent nearly a decade working at Impact First Investments. She describes what she learned there in terms of the grit required:When I started with Impact First Investments, I was absolutely sure that everyone would just realize that blending capital with tech to create solutions for our world's biggest problems just made sense. And it just till now, it's like absolutely mind-boggling to me that I was among the few people who really were convinced on that. Most people just told me no, that it can't happen. It's not possible. So I was right. You know, in retrospect about that being a thing that really works, I was right about making sure that we expand and retain as much talent and as possible into doing these things.She also acknowledges that she was wrong about some aspects of how to take impact investing mainstream.Cecile offers two critical pieces of advice for people looking to strengthen their grit. First is to recognize that you're on your own.I raised four children pretty much on my own. Life doesn't give us any candies—not a lot of them, to most of us. You can just decide that it's just too much. You just wish that somebody, someone, would take over. But if you do that, then you lose. No one's coming—no knight in shining armor. No one's coming. Yeah, it's up to you. The sooner you understand that and the sooner you accept that, the better you are. Because then you face difficulty. You say, “Okay, this is happening. It's just me here. I might get some help, but at the end of the day, it's me.”So buckle up, and let's just do it. Sometimes you'll still fail, but a lot of times, you'll just get over this bump.The second is to recognize that overcoming challenges makes you stronger. Cecile says, “A lot of times, beyond the bump is what you're looking for. There will be more bumps coming, but you'll be stronger when you address them.”You can make grit a superpower that enables you to do more good in the world by following Cecile's example and advice.

Henrik Skaug Sætra contends humans aren't mere machines, assesses AI thru a sustainable development lens and weighs the effect of political imbalances and ESG.Henrik embraces human complexity. He advises against applying AI to naturally messy problems or to influence populations least able to resist. Henrik outlines how the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) can identify beneficial and marketable avenues for AI. He also describes SDG's usefulness in ethical impact assessment. Championing affordable and equitable access to technology, Henrik shows how disparate impacts occur between individuals, groups and society. Along the way, Kimberly and Henrik discuss political imbalances, the technocratic nature of emerging regulations and why we shouldn't expect corporations to be broadly ethical of their own accord. Outlining his AI ESG protocol, Henrik surmises that qualitative rigor can address gaps in quantitative analysis alone. Finally, Henrik encourages the proactive use of SDGs and ESG to drive innovation and opportunity.Henrik is Head of the Digital Society and an Associate Professor at Østfold University College. He is a political theorist focusing on the political, ethical, and social implications of technology.A transcript of this episode can be found here.
Schools are supposed to prepare young people for the opportunities ahead of them, but oftentimes the opportunities move faster than the school systems. In the last few years some of the world's leading countries have made massive commitments to sustainability. Legislation like the Inflation Reduction Act has promised millions of new jobs in sustainability and, currently, our lack of labor force is a huge bottleneck in being able to meet the demands of these urgent legislative wins. What can schools do to create greener education to employment pathways and prepare younger generations for the jobs ahead? Michelle Blanchet from Educator's Lab and Mason Pashia from Getting Smart recently hosted a roundtable discussion to help spotlight where we are now and where we need to get to. The panelists on this event were: Thomas Riggle, Denver Public Schools Tish Tablan, Generation180 Shonique Banks, Philadelphia Energy Jordan Crolly, Philadephia School District
SDG&E customers can expect some relief soon from January's unprecedented natural gas prices. We also have some tips on how you can lower your bill. In other news, a San Diego County contractor has been ordered to hire back some janitors who were trying to unionize. Plus, San Diego is in desperate need of more workforce housing, to keep essential workers in the region.
In this episode, our host Tate Chamberlin hosts climate activist and SDG advocate Marc Buckley at the 27th Conference of the Parties of the UNFCCC (COP27) in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt. One of the first climate speakers trained by Al Gore, Buckley seeks to “empower billions of global citizens to live an adaptive lifestyle of health and sustainability,” actively working toward systems reform driven by accountability, optimism, and hope. Here, he discusses the regenerative model primed to replace our dystopian reality with a utopian vision well within our grasp.
SDG&E customers are opening surprisingly high utility bills this month, as natural gas rates are more than double what they were a year ago. In other news, homelessness has been dropping among veterans in San Diego County, but Supervisor Nathan Fletcher wants a regional strategy to end it completely. Plus, a local author talks about her new novel about the pressures of being a teen.
The pitfalls of the energy transition are on full display in a Southeast state. A 2021 law set North Carolina on its way to slashing carbon emissions by 70% by the end of the decade and reaching carbon neutrality by 2050. HB 951 represented an unprecedented, bipartisan effort for a state to tackle climate change and deploy clean energy.But clashes between Duke Energy, the utility governed by the law, and clean energy developers showcase that historic policy is only part of the equation. Execution is just as challenging.Episode 32 of the Factor This! podcast features Steve Levitas and Tyler Norris, who both work on clean energy policy for utility-scale solar and storage developers. They share why what's happening in North Carolina should be a warning to the rest of the country.About the sponsors:This episode of Factor This! is sponsored by Rolls Battery.

This episode of Factor This! is sponsored by Heila Technologies, a Kohler company. Corporate demand for clean energy couldn't be hotter. And it's not just for far-away solar and wind farms anymore.In a year plagued by trade disputes, supply chain constraints, and missed targets, onsite commercial and industrial deployment of solar, batteries and EV charging grew in 2022 when other areas sank.Leaders in the C&I space say it's about to explode. That growth doesn't come without its own challenges for grid reliability.Episode 30 of the Factor This! podcast features Raphael Declercq, CEO of the C&I solar, storage, and EV charging developer PowerFlex.Owned by EDF Renewables, PowerFlex is a leader in the C&I space, recently raising $100 million to expand its onsite energy management hardware and software offering.Declercq weighed in on the impact of the California net metering decision, intelligent EV charging, and the outlook for an often overlooked segment of the industry.About the sponsor:This episode of Factor This is sponsored by Heila Technologies, a Kohler Company.Heila is changing the way complex microgrids are managed and operated with its EDGE control and optimization platform, which makes each asset in a system smarter while making the whole microgrid more efficient and resilient.

Plastic products have become a huge environmental problem and some San Diego companies are trying to change that by creating new kinds of plastics. In other news, SDG&E natural gas customers will experience sticker shock when they open up their January bills. Plus, San Diego's House of Ukraine has partnered with a humanitarian organization to bring holiday joy to children in Ukraine.
Republicans are still grappling over who will lead their party - the U.S. House of Representatives is still without a Speaker after voting over 2 days. And, the cost of natural gas has skyrocketed, and so could your household gas bills. SDG&E is warning customers to prepare for higher utility bills. Then, with storms flooding parts of California there is a bit of good news.

Scott Stornetta is a Grandfather, Teacher, Investor and scientific researcher – and an invention he did 30 years ago totally revolutionizes the world of tech today. In 1991, he and Stuart Haber, published the whitepaper "How to Time-Stamp a Digital Document”. This paper, in fact, could be described as the invention of blockchain. In 1992 this paper won the Discover Award for Computer Software; it's considered to be one of the most important papers in the development of cryptocurrencies as we know it today.Tune into this fascinating conversation as we explore inventing blockchain by proving its impossibility, the current state of trust and blockchain's role in fixing it, stakeholders in mass adoption of timestamps and Web3 – and Self-Sovereign Identity (SSI) and how to get there.For full show notes visit https://thetrustedweb.org/podcast/.
Hii leo katika jarida la Umoja wa Mataifa utasikia mada kwa kina kuhusu utalii endelevu nakulinda wanyamapori walio hatarini kutoweka nchini Tanzania.pia utasikia habari kwa ufupi kuhusu marufuku ya wanawake nchini Afghanistan kufanya kazi kwenye NGOs, Wakimbizi waliokwama baharini kwa mwezi mzima waokolewa na Indonesia na Wakimbizi wa ndani nchini Ukraine wapatiwa msaada katika msimu huu wa baridi. Na tukiwa bado kwenye msimu wa sikukuu, wakimbizi kutoka nchini Ukriane wanajaribu kufanya kila jitihada kuhakikisha nao wanasherehekea sikukuu hizi.Sekta ya utalii ni miongoni mwa sekta zenye mchango mkubwa katika malengo ya maendeleo endelevu SDG's huku Umoja wa Mataifa ukipigia chepuo sekta hiyo kuwa endelevu kwa maslahi ya dunia na watu wake. Nchini Tanzania vijana wanaichangamkia sekta hiyo kwanza kama chanzo cha ajira lakini pia kuchangia katika uchumi wa taifa na jamii zinazowazungukaa. Miongoni mwa vijana hao ni Steven Ngowi anayemiliki kampuni ya utalii ya NDIFO Safari, ambaye mbali ya kuwa muongoza watalii anachagia katika miradi mbalimbali ya jamii na kusaidia kuokoa wanyama walio hatarini kutoweka . Hivi karibuni alifika hapa Marekani kuchangisha fedha kwa ajili ya kusaidia wanyama hao walio hatarini kutoweka wakiwemo tembo. Amezungumza na Flora Nducha wa na kufafanua ni kwa jinsi gani wanavyosaidia wanyama hao walio hatarini kutoweka.
İstanbul Büyükşehir Belediye (İBB) Başkanı Ekrem İmamoğlu'nun yargılandığı davada karar çıktı. Mahkeme heyeti İmamoğlu'na 2 yıl 7 ay 15 gün hapis cezası verdi ve siyasi yasak getiren TCK'nın 53. maddesi uygulandı. İmamoğlu'nun cezası istinaf süreci ve Yargıtay'ın kararı onamasının ardından kesinleşecek. Bu karar Amerika'da nasıl yankı bulur? Rusya'nın Ukrayna'ya saldırıları devam ediyor. Savaş, Ukrayna'nın güneyinde yoğunlaşırken Batı da Kiev'e destek vermeye devam ediyor. Amerikan basınında çıkan haberlere göre Biden yönetimi bu hafta içerisinde Ukrayna'ya Patriot füzesi gönderecek. Bu yardım ne anlama geliyor? Savaşın seyrini değiştirebilir mi? AKP Genel Başkanı ve Cumhurbaşkanı Recep Tayyip Erdoğan'ın Yunanistan'ı “Tayfun” füzesiyle hedef alabileceklerini açıklamasının ardından Ankara ile Atina hattındaki ilişkiler bir kez daha gerildi. Erdoğan'ın sürekli Atina'yı hedef alması ne anlama geliyor?

Vandaag het gesprek met Maurice Beijk. Met “GROEN=DOEN, met nadruk op DOEN' vertelt Maurice Beijk over volhoudbare ontwikkelingen om ons heen en dit hoeft allemaal niet duur en complex te zijn. Maurice Beijk wordt als ‘Rentmeester2050' gezien als deskundige op het gebied van MVO en in het bijzonder op het gebied van duurzaamheid. Een van zijn statements is: “De aarde heeft ons niet nodig maar wij de aarde. Bij maatschappelijk verantwoord ondernemen (MVO) staan de 3 P's centraal: aandacht voor People, Planet en Profit. Bij MVO zijn de 3 P's daarom allemaal even belangrijk. Aan de drie P's van duurzame ontwikkeling: People, Planet, Profit, voegt hij een vierde P toe: Passie. “Zonder passie komt het er niet van” aldus Beijk. Omdenken is zijn kracht. Laten we beginnen… In gesprek met Maurice leerde ik: Als er een branche is waar je betekenisvol kunt zijn, dan is dat bouw infra wel. Meer dan 40% van de klimaatverandering komt door de manier van werken in de bouw en infra 30% van de energie, 30% van de materialen mondiaal. Zijn vouw heeft haar carrière ondergeschikt gemaakt aan die van Maurice, om hem de ruimte te geven om tot wasdom te komen. ReijntenInfra was het eerste bedrijf dat de SDGs volledig omarmt hebben. In 2023 moeten we circulair aanbesteden, in 2030 moet de branche op 50% circulair zitten en in 2050 op 100%. Zijn huis is al 20 jaar gasloos, niet op riool aangesloten en het huis volledig gebouwd van gerecyclede materialen. Volhoudbare projecten. Zes speerpunten: vertrouwen, noaberschap, reciprociteit, cocreatie, natuur en mensinclusiviteit,en creativiteit en innocatie en dat op een integrale manier. De lineaire economie heeft de circulaire economie ontdekt. Met lineaire business modellen verkopen ze circulariteit, zoals de CO2 prestatieladder en BTW heffen over het verwijderen en hergebruik van materialen. Shell krijgt 2 miljard subsidie om CO2 die ze zelf produceren in de grond te blazen. Een koe in de natuur poept en piest niet op dezelfde plek, tegenover mestkelders waar poep en pies bij elkaar voor veel ammonia zorgt. We moeten naar de kringloop landbouw, de houtwallen weer terug en biodiversiteit. Ieder jaar willen ze met ReintenInfra 5% meer blauw en groen in hun werk hebben. De berm en de sloot, de biodiversiteit. Why - samen op weg naar een schoon 2050 How - de zes SDG'sWhat - de excellijsten die dit aantonen 'Design by coincidence' gebruikt bij de nieuwbouw in Borne , met 80% hergebruikte materialen, met BREEAM outstanding Koplopers zijn niet belangrijk. Je hebt volgers nodig. Pas als je genoeg volgers hebt, dan heb je een beweging. Het enigste dat ons als mens kan redden is de natuur. We moeten groen groeien, meer waardering voor de natuur en de natuur weer omarmen. Herplanten, natuurinclusief boeren en bouwen. Vertrouwen krijg je niet, dat moet je verdienen. Door je nek uit te steken, door richting te geven, door een handreiking te doen en door het gesprek aan te gaan. Recyclen staat heel laag op de 10R-model of de ladder van Lansink. Het begint met Refuse - reduce - rethink - re-use - repair- refurbish - remanufacture - repurpose ... op de een-na-laatste plek staat pas recycle. Mensen die iets ontwerpen (architecten, constructeurs) die hebben een verantwoordelijkheid, die moeten het dusdanig ontwerpen dat het eindproduct weer in de keten behouden kan worden. Er zijn veel huizenfabrieken in Nederland en een deel daarvan zijn de afvalbergen voor de komende jaren. Net als de weg is ook een huis te gast in het landschap. Het voordenken is belangrijk hierin. Van fast fahion naar slow fashion. Van fast bouwen naar slow bouwen Circulariteit is het beheren en beheersen van de bronnen, energie-, voedsel-, materiaal-, ambachts-, en waterbronnen. In zo klein mogelijke kringlopen en de kringlopen gesloten houden. We moeten reclame verbieden - Jan Rotmans. Maurice gunt iedereen een goede crisis.
Irish Tech News Audio Articles
Rosses Community School Dungloe, in Co. Donegal has become the first ever Irish winner of the Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) flagship STEM education program, goIT (go Innovate Together). The team of five Transition Year students from Rosses Community School competed with schools across Ireland and UK to win the recent monthly challenge to Promote Social Inclusion for All by creating a digital innovation that empowers and promotes the inclusion of all people, regardless of their background. GoIT seeks to bridge the science, technology, maths and engineering (STEM) learning gap in schools and has benefited more than 130,000 students worldwide since 2009. The initiative empowers students with the skills and practice and provides mentorship to prepare them for careers of the future. To date, the international goIT monthly challenge has led to the design of more than 26,000 tech-for-good digital innovation prototypes by young innovators. The winning project from the team at Rosses Community School saw them develop their ‘Coffair' App which they designed to help reduce the exploitation of coffee farmers that are faced with language barriers when trying to negotiate fair prices for their goods. Their innovative app would enable coffee farmers to connect with buyers in a global market to enable more transparency in the supply chain. Commenting on the achievement, Brian Kelly, TCS CSR Manager said “I am thrilled that the Rosses Community School were the first Irish winners of the goIT challenge. This monthly challenge is a recurring opportunity for classrooms to directly engage in the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through the goIT digital innovation. It is also an excellent opportunity for students all over Ireland to express their innovative ideas and gain valuable experience in presenting their ideas.” The winning students recently visited the TCS Global Delivery Centre in Letterkenny, where TCS provides IT services, consulting and business solutions on behalf of its many Irish and multinational customers. While visiting, the TY Economics Students Dylan Doherty, Cianán Mc Daid, Louie Mort, Eoghan O'Hagan and Darragh Davidson spent the morning in the TCS boardroom discussing their app idea with the TCS Leadership team Andrea McBride, Gerard Grant, Chris Lynch and CSR Manager Brian Kelly. TCS leadership were highly impressed with the ‘Coffair' app innovative idea, the students' detailed presentation, and their confidence. Andrea McBride, Head of TCS Global Delivery Centre said: “We were delighted to welcome the winning students to our Global Delivery Centre in Letterkenny to present to our leadership team. It was great to hear about their fantastic innovation and to give them some information on our work at TCS, giving an overview of what we deliver to our customers around the globe and the employment opportunities available for their future in Donegal. We hope the goIT experience was a fun and creative way to learn more about STEM and computer science.” The TCS goIT program aims to inspire students to consider a career in computer science and technology, spark curiosity in their minds and enhance confidence and employability. It also works to empower students to design and develop innovative digital solutions?for community problems, provide exposure and insight into varied roles within an IT company and the business world?and challenge gender stereotypes by showcasing women in STEM as role models. TCS has a large presence in Ireland where it employs over 1,000 people located at the TCS Global Delivery Centre in Letterkenny, Co. Donegal. TCS is now launching the December GoIT Challenge. This month we are celebrating all the wonderful Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) we helped tackle with technology this year. Students can choose any of the pervious challenges from this year and design an app to solve a problem around that SDG. For more information on the goIT Challenge and to sign up and enter the December Challenge v...

Vandaag het gesprek met Paul Behrens. Paul is an author and academic at Leiden University. His popular science book, The Best of Times, The Worst of Times: Futures from the Frontiers of Climate Science describes humanity's current trajectory and possible futures in paired chapters of pessimism and hope, on topics including the economy, energy, land and food. Enjoy the insights of Paul. Let's get started… In this conversation with Paul I learned: The COPs are like a barometer, it is where the international community is. Flying does not feel right anymore for Paul. Politics is all about attention. Attention is grabbed by incumbent powers. Politicians are just hearing about bio-mass, hydrogen, and carbon capture. Biomass is a bad way of doing it. Hydrogen there is a role for it, but much smaller than we are being told. Capturing the carbon from the power plants is not good enough. There are better alternatives, mostly wind and solar. Research shows that we have underestimated how much people are willing to change. We are too cynical about our neighbors. When a group of civilians from all walks of life got a presentation from scientists about the climate, they come up with policies far beyond what the politicians thought. Some of the policies these people came up with were, banning SUVs, frequent flyer levies, and cuts in meat. Not something you see a politician propose, but the people want it. Citizen assemblies. 1000 people die in the EU every day, early, from air pollution. We can address 70+ percent of our issues with only a handful of technologies and behavior changes. Solutions are wind, solar, transmission, insulating houses, plant-based diets, and changes in transportation. If we would switch in the high-income nations to plant-based diets, we would save an area as large as the EU. We use about half of all habitable land for agriculture, and about 80% of that is for animal agriculture. We can revert that land back to natural cultivation. This would increase the capture of carbon. Rewilding takes energy out of the storms and will reduce flooding, and nature improves mental health. One wind turbine kills a bird once a year. One cat kills roughly 9 birds a year. Cars and buildings kill a magnitude more birds. By acting you are building hope. You need that punch in the gut for the sense of urgency. You need a pessimist and hopeful view for a change. We need more scientists that engage with emotions. Paul is pessimistic about the buzzwords like the SDG and circular economy, it is a way to avoid things that actually make a difference. Look where the impact and focus are for your company. What is the hit you want to take? The SDGs are not an easy-to-remember common language with 150+ goals. Would the SDG's better when they were shorter and less mutually exclusive? How we are consuming is the biggest impact. There is going to be a lot of migration in the future. We help these refugees over here, or we need to solve the issues over there. Personal transformation for external change.

Sean Davis is the founder and managing director of Merton Capital Partners, an adjunct professor at Palm Beach Atlantic University, and the Author of "Solving the Giving Pledge Bottleneck." Merton Capital Partners develops innovative investment strategies to unlock philanthropy's potential by incentivizing corporations to generate large-scale good in their core businesses. What the heck is the link between philanthropy and water? That may be very obscure if you're like me before meeting Sean. Yet you'll see that it will make a lot of sense in just twenty minutes. I've often discussed with brilliant minds on that microphone how people without safe water or cities without wastewater treatment made little economic sense. We've talked about wrong pockets issues and highlighted all the reasons why we thought something could be done. Yet, I was long seeking the spark that could ignite the revolution, and I fear that I'm not the only one. In their "Worth of Water" book, Gary White and Matt Damon say nothing else: they have a proven path to scale to solve the water challenges within two decades, but they lack the seed money to get the ball rolling. Sure, we could all wait for states to walk the talk. But if we're still discussing SDG 6 or aging infrastructure at the end of 2022 in pessimistic or alarming terms, it's probably a sign that we should not have too high hopes from that path. So what's left? Tears and sighs? Well, that's where the new path Sean introduces today brings a bright new hope. Philanthropic money doesn't have to be spent at a loss - and there are significant pockets of investments that look for the right vehicles. This is how in a minute, we'll discuss evergreen investment strategies, blended capital, helping philanthropists to get the highest bang for their buck, and much more. My conversation with Sean made me think of many new ways to connect the Water dots, so I'm pretty sure it might do the same for you! If that's the case, spread the word and share that episode with your friends, colleagues, or LinkedIn network. And if you want me to dive deeper into the topic, I'd be honestly delighted to, now that I've got a bit more knowledge thanks to Sean's book (the link to it is in the show notes, check it out!) Come tell me on LinkedIn, remember to share that episode, and I'll meet you on the other side! How to Actively Invest Philanthropy and Save the (Water) World?

This week on The Beats, Kelly Kennedy talks to two pioneering experts on the subject of water and its implications for health: Gina Bria, Founder of the Hydration Foundation and Kenny Lu, developer of Spring Aqua. Gina reminds us that we are 99% water molecules and that water is the ultimate communication system in our bodies. She emphasizes that the quality of the water we consume is critical for the proper function of our cells, tissues and organs. Kenny explains how his state-of-the-art home device mimics nature's water filtration process by passing through precise layers of minerals that also purify and structure the liquid. The Spring Aqua equipment is ultimately able to turn ordinary tap water into the equivalent of naturally occurring, spring water. Gina Bria is an anthropologist, author and founder of the Hydration Foundation to better hydrate people, plants, animals and soils. The Hydration Foundation has been responsible for accelerating research in key areas of 4th phase water in liquid crystalline form; clinical studies in hydration; pilot projects in schools and nursing homes; field research in soil microbiology and crop enhancement and the development of new water technologies like spin funnels, lowering cost and accessibility. She convened the first ever TEDxNewYorkSalon event on structured water, featuring Dr. Gerald Pollack, who first identified 4th phase water. Her own TEDxtalk, How to Grow Water: It's Not Only Blue, It's Green, identifies plants in hydration strategies around the globe. A Berlin Fellow with the Social Science Research Council and an NIH finalist in medieval scholarship, Bria was named Real World Scholar and her research chapter in The New Global Agenda: Priorities and Practices, serves as a policy guide for SDG initiatives on the place of water in health and wealth. Kenny Lu has been an entrepreneur for over 20 years with extensive international experience building businesses in the United States, Canada, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Malaysia, and Singapore.

Serikali ya Rwanda kwa ushirikiano na Umoja wa Mataifa nchini humo wameamua kuitumia siku ya Umoja wa Mataifa hii leo kusherekea pia miaka 60 ya Rwanda tangu kujiunga rasmi na Umoja wa Mataifa mwaka 1962. Flora Nducha wa idhaa ya kiswahili ya Umoja wa Mataifa ameshuhudia maadhimisho hayo yaliyofanyika katika hoteli ya Serena mjini Kigali ambako maadhimisho ya 60 ya Rwanda kujiunga na Umoja wa Mataifa yanafanyika.Flora ameeleza kushuhudia ukumbi ukiwa umesheheni kwa mapambo na watu mbalimbali walioalikwa kuhudhuria maadhimisho haya yaliyoandaliwa kwa pamoja na Umoja wa Mataifa na serikali ya Rwanda yakibeba maudhui “Ushirikiano kwa ajili ya mustakbali bora wa pamoja kwa wote” Miongoni mwa wageni waalikwa ni wawakilishi wa asasi za kiraia, mawaziri kutoka serikali ya Rwanda, wawakilishi wa mashirika mbalimbali ya Umoja wa Mataifa , mabalozi wa nchi mbalimbali walioko Rwanda, waku wa makampuni ya sekta binafsi na wanazuoni. Akifungua maadhimisho hayo kwa niaba ya Umoja wa Mataifa kaimu mratibu mkazi wa Umoja wa Mataifa nchini hapa ambaye pia ni mwakilishi wa shirika la Umoja wa Mataifa la mpango wa maendeleo UNDP Maxwell Gomera amesema “Miaka 60 iliyopita serikali ya Rwanda ilikaribishwa kwenye Umoja wa Mataifa moja ya mashirika ya kipekee duniani, likijizatiti kutatua changamoto za pamoja kupitia ushirikiano na hatua za pamoja . Kwa kufanya hivyo serikali ilikuwa inasisitiza lengo lake la kutatua masuala ya ukosefu wa haki , kudumisha amani , usalama na afya ya wananchi miongoni mwa mengine. Miaka 28 iliyopita lengo hilo lilikabiliwa na changamoto kubwa na dunia ilishuhudia muaji mabaya zaidi ya kimbari dhidi ya Watutsi. Hivi karibuni Katibu Mkuu Antonio Guterres alitafakari wakati huo na kushindwa kwetu kama jumuiya ya kimataifa kuingilia kati kuzuia na kukomesha mauaji ya kimbari dhidi ya Watutsi. Ingawa hatukupitia machungu yenu, ndugu waziri tunatumai mtaturuhusu kufanya kazi nanyi katika safari yenu kuhakikisha asilani hayatatokea tena” Naye Waziri wa mambo ya nje na ushirikiano wa kimataifa wa Rwanda Vincent Biruta akizungumza kwa niaba ya serikali kwenye hafla hii amesema “Miaka 60 ya historia ya pamoja imeghubikwa na machungu lakini pia hadithi za mafanikio na mambo ya kujifunza ambayo yanatuhamasisha kuendeleza ushirikiano wetu kwa ajili ya mustakbali bora na wa pamoja kwa wote. Licha ya mazingira magumu tumejifunza kutokana na yaliyopita na tumechagua kuganga yajayo na mazuri tutakayoweza kutimiza kwa kushirikiana kikamilifu kama wanachama wa jumuiya ya kimataifa. Rwanda sasa ni taifa lililoungana na lenye maono mengi asante kwa watu wa Rwanda lakini pia asante kwa ushirikiano na jumuiya ya kimataifa na Umoja wa Mataifa ambao umechukua mtazamo wa maendeleo tangu miaka 28 iliyopita.” Sherehe hizi zimeambatana pia na mijadala kuhusu mada mbalimbali ikiwemo masuala ya ulinzi wa amani na mchango wa Rwanda kwenye operesheni za Umoja wa Mataifa, utatuzi wa migogoro na utekelezaji wa malengo ya maendeleo endelevu SDG's. Rwanda ilijiunga rasmi kwenye Umoja wa Mataifa tarehe 18 Septemba mwaka 1962 mara tu baada ya kujinyakulia uhuru wake kutoka kwa Wabelgiji.
The November election will have a significant focus on local school board races, and as the on-going pandemic continues, many parents are interested in how school districts are run. In other news, SDG&E is seeking to increase rates starting next year. Plus, a 1960s horror movie will be screening on 16-millimeter film in San Diego Friday.
Tunakabiliwa na ukweli mchungu ya kwamba dunia inarudi nyuma badala ya kusonga mbele wakati huu ambapo hii leo tunaadhimisha siku ya kimataifa ya kutokomeza umaskini duniani, amesema Katibu Mkuu wa Umoja wa Mataifa Antonio Guterres katika ujumbe wake wa siku hii yenye maudhui, Utu kwa Wote kivitendo. Assumpta Massoi na maelezo zaidi. (Taarifa ya Assumpta Massoi) Katibu Mkuu amesema dunia inarejea nyuma kwa kuwa janga la COVID-19 limetumbukiza mamilioni ya watu kwenye umaskini na kurudisha nyuma maendeleo yaliyopatikana kwa tabu kwa kipindi cha miaka minne. Pengo la ukosefu wa usawa linazidi kuongezeka, uchumi wa kitaifa na wa kaya unadumazwa na kupotea kwa ajira, kuongezeka kwa bei za vyakula na nishati na wingu zito la mdororo wa uchumi likitanda. Katibu Mkuu amesema wakati huo huo, janga la tabianchi nalo limejikita, mizozo nayo kwa Pamoja vinasababisha machungu makubwa huku walio maskini zaidi ndio wakibeba mzigo mkubwa. “Nchi zinazoendelea zinazidi kukaukiwa, zikinyimwa fursa ya rasilimali na msamaha wa madeni ili kuweza kuwekeza kwenye harakati za kujikwamua,” amesema Katibu Mkuu. Ndoto ya kufikia malengo ya maendeleo endelevu, SDG mwaka 2030 nayo inafifia. Hivyo amesema siku ya kimataifa ya kutokomeza umaskini ni kengele ya kuamsha dunia na kwamba maudhui ya mwaka huu Utu katika vitendo vyote lazima yawe kilio cha hatua za dharura duniani. Hatua kuwekeza kwa majawabu yanayotambua watu kama kitovu cha suluhisho- kuanzia afya, ajira zenye staha, usawa, hifadhi ya jamii na marekebisho ya mifumo ya chakula na afya. Halikadhalika hatua za kurekebisha mfumo wa fedha duniani uliomomonyoka kimaadili na kuhakikisha nchi zote zina uwezo na fursa ya kupata fedha na msaada wa madeni. Hatua pia kusaidia nchi zinazoendelea wakati huu zinahaha kuhama kutoka nishati inayoharibu mazingira kwenda kwenye nishati salama itakayochochea ajira zisizoharibu mazingira. Bila kusahau hatua za kumaliza vita, na kuponya mgawanyiko wa kijiografia na kusongesha amani. Na hatimaye ni hatua za kufanikisha SDGs, na kwa mantiki hiyo ametaka siku hii ya leo “hebu turejelee ahadi yetu ya kuwa na dunia bora kwa wote. Hebu na tupeleke umaskini kwenye vitabu vya historia.”

Pamba ina mchango mkubwa kwa maendeleo ya jamii na uchumi wa mataifa mbalimbali duniani, hivyo hatua Madhubuti zinahitajika kuhakikisha zao hilo linaendelezwa na wakulima wake kulindwa dhidi ya changamoto lukuki ikiwemo mabadiliko ya tabianchi, limesema shirika la chakula na kilimo la Umoja wa Mataifa FAO. Flora Nducha na taarifa zaidi Wito huo upo katika taarifa maalumu iliyotolewa leo na FAO mjini Roma Italia katika kuadhimisha siku yap amba duniani huku ikiongeza kuwa inakadiriwa kuwa wakulima wa familia milioni 100 katika nchi 80 duniani wanategemea moja kwa moja sekta ya pamba, na wanawake wana jukumu muhimu katika mnyororo wa thamani wa zao hilo. Kwa mujibu wa FAO pamba inasaidia uchumi wa nchi nyingihususani zenye kipato cha chini na zinazoinukia. Mwaka wa 2021, uzalishaji wa pamba ulimwenguni ulikadiriwa kuwa karibu dola bilioni 50, wakati biashara ya kimataifa ilikuwa dola bilioni 20. . Boubaker Ben Belhassen, mkurugenzi wa idara ya masoko na biashara katika shirika la FAO amesema “Pamba ina mchango mkubwa katika maendeleo ya kijamii na kiuchumi, biashara ya kimataifa na kupunguza umaskini na hivyo kuchangia katika kufikiwa kwa ajenda ya 2030 ya maendeleo endelevu na malengo ya maendeleo endelevu SDG's.” Hata hivyo, amesema sekta hiyo inakabiliwa na changamoto nyingi kwa sababu ya mabadiliko ya tabianchi, wadudu waharibifu na magonjwa, janga la COVID-19 na kudorora kwa uchumi wa dunia miongoni mwa masuala mengine, pia kuyumba kwa bei ya soko kumeathiri sekta hiyo pakubwa. Ameongeza kuwa "Madhumuni ya maadhimisho haya ya kimataifa ni kuvutia mamia ya mamilioni ya watu duniani kote ambao wanapata riziki zao kupitia mnyororo wa thamani wa pamba, na kusisitiza mchango wa sekta hiyo katika kufanikisha ajenda ya 2030 ya maendeleo endelevu." Mada kuu ya siku ya pamba duniani kwa mwaka huu wa 2022 ni jinsi uvumbuzi na teknolojia unavyoweza kuleta suluhu kwa changamoto zinazoikabili sekta ya pamba, kukuza uendelevu katika mnyororo wa thamani wa pamba na kuunda fursa mpya za masoko kwa wazalishaji wa pamba, haswa wakulima wadogo.
Mamileiros e mamiletes, em todo o território nacional existem brasileiros trabalhando, sonhando e criando um novo projeto de país, um Brasil em que os objetivos do Milênio serão alcançados não em um futuro distante, mas logo ali, em 2030. Um Brasil sem desigualdade de raça, de gênero, social, em que a loteria do nascimento não determina nosso futuro. Um Brasil com soberania alimentar e segurança hídrica, com desenvolvimento sustentável produzindo riqueza sem destruir a biodiversidade. Um Brasil com educação, saúde e trabalho de qualidade para todos, com cidades democráticas, seguras, resilientes e sustentáveis. Essa é a ambição da Agenda 2030. Tivemos a oportunidade de ouvir 55 palestrantes e painelistas que constroem esse futuro no SDG in Brazil, um evento que acontece durante a Assembleia Geral da ONU em Nova York. O Mamilos foi convidado pelo Pacto Global da ONU para planejar o conteúdo e também mediar algumas mesas que discutiram temas como liderança, saúde mental, salário digno, justiça climática, finanças verdes e capitalismo consciente, descarbonização, sistemas alimentares, além das questões indígenas e das favelas brasileiras. No programa de hoje, vamos ouvir quem estuda e encontra soluções e também empresas que já estão implementando mudanças, assumindo e compromissos públicos na Agenda 2030 para acelerar o cenário. E como vários palestrantes falaram em inglês, a gente vai ouvir a voz delas mais baixinha no áudio e a tradução do discurso sendo narrada pela prata da casa do B9.

A gente sabe que a nova dinâmica econômica global e o avanço da tecnologia abriram portas e fez muita gente perceber que as finanças como a gente conheceu antigamente nunca mais serão as mesmas. Hoje, começamos a nossa jornada de conhecimento a partir de um termo que transformou a economia mundial: o bitcoin. É a partir dessa moeda virtual que a digitalização e descentralização das finanças globais ganham força. Mas você já parou para pensar como as finanças descentralizadas, também conhecidas como DeFi, podem transformar o mercado financeiro? Diferente das finanças tradicionais, o DeFi não requer instituições financeiras para intermediar qualquer tipo de produto ou serviço, o que torna o sistema muito mais eficiente, disponível e acessível para os usuários. De olho nesse rápido desenvolvimento do DeFi, a Accenture preparou um relatório com detalhes do que esperar das finanças descentralizadas no presente e no futuro. Com experiência e expertise nesse mercado, a Accenture mergulhou nessa jornada ao DeFi para te ajudar em qualquer uma das etapas nesse processo de transição. E a companhia aponta o Brasil como mercado potencial para o DeFi por conta do sucesso de outras iniciativas de disrupção tecnológica do sistema financeiro tradicional, como o Pix. Para mais detalhes sobre os impactos e a preparação das empresas para DeFi, acesse o relatório completo: accenture.com.br/defi _____ CONTRIBUA COM O MAMILOS Quem apoia o Mamilos ajuda a manter o podcast no ar e ainda participa do nosso grupo especial no Telegram.

Bérénice Lasfargues is Sustainability Integration Lead at BNP Paribas Asset Management. In this role, she is in charge of the implementation of the firm's ESG integration policy, working closely with portfolio managers across all asset classes to more purposefully integrate ESG criteria in their portfolios; and manages the internal firm-wide network of ESG Champions in investment teams. The changing regulatory environment is placing increasing importance on ESG data, and in her role, Bérenice works on the evolution of the firm's ESG research platform (including development of BNPP AM proprietary ESG rating and SDG data models) and provides strategic guidance on the optimal flow of ESG data through the company. She also coordinates the firm's approach to impact investment, and leads on its ESG analysis in the ICT sector. She is the representative for BNPP AM's sustainable investment capabilities across the Americas, promoting the firm's expertise with clients and externally across the region. Previously, she worked at the OECD, undertaking economic research on green and blended finance. She was also a legislative fellow in the U.S. House of Representatives and conducted fieldwork on climate change and development in emerging markets. Bérénice holds masters' degrees in engineering and environmental management from Ecole Centrale Paris (now CentraleSupelec) and the National University of Singapore, respectively. She is an EFFAS CESGA (Certified ESG Analyst) certificate holder. Bérénice joins Sustainable Nation to Discuss: Why asset managers are looking so closely at sustainability and ESG goals BNP Pams sustainability investment beliefs and four standard pillars Challenges with ESG rating systems How ESG data could become more valuable Advice and recommendations for sustainability professionals Bérénice's Final Five Questions Responses What is one piece of advice you would give other sustainability professionals that might help them in their careers? One piece of advice would be to get involved or keep up as much as you can with collaborative working groups and networks. Depending on your focus area or sector, there are so many. For example, if you are within the investment management industry, you could get involved with Principles for Responsible Investment, the Global Impact Investing network, or the Initial Investors Group on Climate Change, just to name a few. I was collectively marched towards mainstreaming sustainability for more cognitive diversity to solve common challenges and raise the bar across the board. So number one is get involved. Number two would be to put in the work into the training and knowing your stuff on sustainability. It may seem from the outside, the ESG landscape is a bit fuzzy. We just talked about the fact that the market is fragmented. But ESG is now part of a firm's license to operate. Therefore there is a need to engage and upscale your workforce on this topic. There are great trainings that exist, the CFA Institute, the Fundamentals for Sustainability Accounting from SASB, the European Federation of Financial Society also has a training. Within BNP Pam we have a network of ESG champions. Each client and investment facing team has one, and they're required to get some formal certification on ESG. So it starts with people and upscaling your people so they have expertise to make the right judgment calls. Maybe a final one would be: develop your leadership skills as they relate to change management. All ESG jobs at the moment, unless you're working at a pure player firm, and even then, involve some element of persuasion and winning hearts and minds. ESG is a journey, and along the journey you will need people and you will need to be able to convince people in other parts of the firm on the foundation of ESG. That is what change management is all about. What are you most excited about right now in the world of sustainability? The momentum of the space, but also the increased scrutiny from a new set of stakeholders- regulators, retail, investors, consumers- clearly they shine the light on the fact that we have made so much progress. But there is still so much progress that we still need to make. In the current environment, there is a strong and very important push against greenwashing and that is welcome. I think it will make us only better as practitioners. What is one book you would recommend sustainability professionals read? One short book, which is really a call to action, would be On Impact: A Guide to the Impact Revolution by Sir Ronald Cohen. This book is kind of a prelude of sorts to this much longer book titled Impact: Reshaping Capitalism to Drive Real Change. So you can either read the short manifesto or the longer book depending on your bandwidth. But both books talk about the advent of the impact entrepreneurs and the potential paradigm shift from the risk return equation to a risk return impact equation in investment analysis, and also from measuring activities and inputs to measuring outcomes. Also how at each level as consumers; citizens, employers, we can facilitate this transition in thinking on impact investing. Another book, I have to confess I'm only halfway through, but another book which I find very interesting is Moving Beyond Portfolio Theory by Jon Lukomnik James Hawley. We truly look at how modern portfolio theory has been instrumental in shaping traditional investment but also how it falls short in terms of including a consideration of systemic risk and market ecosystem impact. So that's a very tall order, tackling modern portfolio theory. That's what you're trying to do in this book. What are some of your favorite resources or tools that really help you in your work? In terms of resources, keeping up with market developments related to ESG investing. There are a few newsletters and resources that I would say most of us in the industry tend to read. There is Responsible Investors, Environmental Finance, Bloomberg Green, the Financial Times Moral Money newsletter just to name a few. Another resource for us is academia as well as looking at work done by international organizations, such as the IEA, the OCE or the World Bank Group. We at BMP Pam are a founding supporter of GRAFSI, which is the Global Research Alliance for Sustainable Finance and Investments. It is a global network of leading research universities founded in 2017 that aims to develop academic collaboration on the topic and they have aan annual conference. The next one is in September at the University of Zurich and next year will be at Yale university in September 2023. I think one of the reasons we are very keen to support academia is that as sustainable investment practitioners in such a growing and emerging field, we really need to rely on high quality academic research to make sense of this ESG alphabet to support development of new methodologies, as well as inform development of our new policies in a way that is transparent. Where can our listeners go to learn more about you and your work being done at BNP? They can find information regarding our approach to sustainability on our corporate website https://group.bnpparibas/en/. On it you can find global sustainability strategy, all our policies on integration, stewardship, regulatory documentation. We have a sustainability report but also have profiled members of our firm on what it means for them in the day to day sustainable investor for a changing world. I can also be reached out to directly on LinkedIn and Twitter.
Energy from San Diego's brand new power companies is slightly more expensive than their competitor — the former local power monopoly, SDG&E. The whole conceit of these new power companies was to boost competition and thereby lower prices. So, mission accomplished? Not to some. Voice environment reporter MacKenzie Elmer has been following the twisted tale of San Diego energy as fledgling power players rise in the region. Now with more options available, customers have to (and can!) make a choice. Let's get into it. Statewide talking points: That big electric car news.
