I learned of Blake through the mailing list of the maker of my rowing machine, Concept2. Their piece on him described him as a Paralympic bound athlete. I was impressed, but only thought of him as a potential guest on watching his TEDx talk.I think my message to his agent describes what I saw in him and when we talked about in this episode:In Blake's case, I heard a message I've never heard with such clarity and experience I wonder if he realizes how much it applies to stewardship and the environment. It's almost the exact message nearly everyone needs. I can't put it as well as he can, but what he shared starting around minute 3 of his TEDx talk of a system breaking down, where most people would be ready to give up, technology being important, but relationships, faith, support, and laughter being the core of what worked.I see roughly 350 million Americans and 7.9 billion humans ready to give in and accept a system breaking down. Then I see Blake living the opposite of their resignation leading to a better life, and there's been almost a decade since leading to what I read as yet more improvement.In my book coming out next year, I quote Churchill's speeches during the blitz -- that it's bad, it will get worse, but we will fight on the beaches, we will never surrender, it will be our finest hour. I heard in Blake's message from a decade ago what America and the world would benefit most from hearing today. I expect it's stronger today.Since he also just won a silver medal, I also ask him about the training and competing.Blake's TEDx talk, The Advantage of Adversity See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

As Chairman of GoDigital Media Group (godigitalmg.com), Jason Peterson and his four other companies -- Cinq Music a multi-Grammy winning indie label, publisher and distributor (cinqmusic.com), Latido Music, the #1 Hispanic targeted multi-platform music television network with over 3 billion streams per month (latidomusic.com), ContentBridge and AdShare (adshare.tv) have blazed the path to re-monetizing the music industry. Five years ago, the music industry was the weak link in the entertainment industry, with revenues down over 50 percent. Peterson wondered where all the revenue went, since people were actually listening to more music, not less. While others spoke in apocalyptic terms about the music industry, Peterson knew that it could all be turned around, especially for the artist, and created a system. Peterson has been a major force in changing the way music is marketed, consumed and distributed around the world. The music industry is booming once again! Artists signed or catalogs acquired by Peterson include Janet Jackson, T.I., Master P, Jason Derulo and Daddy Yankee. He's produced dozens of major music videos that have won “Video of the Year” at the Gospel Music Awards, MTV Latin Video Music Awards as well as “Best Directorial Debut” at the MVPA awards. Most recently, he co-produced the video for Janet Jackson and Daddy Yankee's “Made for Now.” Peterson's Adshare was one of the first companies to monetize music videos on YouTube, giving artists what amounts to an annuity for life. GoDigital Media Group invests in music as intellectual property, making music catalogs an ever more popular alternative investment. Cinq Music now leverages social media in ways never thought possible to unite fans and globalize artists of all genres. Peterson was named Billboard's top 100 POWER PLAYERS for 2018, Media Play News Magazine's Top 40 under 40, the youngest producer to get a film accepted into Sundance, attended USC (Film Business) and obtained his law degree from Pepperdine University. He is on the Boards of the following music organizations:MERLIN: global collective bargaining organization for independent labelA2iM: the trade group for American independent labelsWIN: representing the global independent label communityEntertainment Merchants Association: representing the $43B/yr home entertainment industry City of Hope Music, Film & Entertainment Board: helping raise over $130M for cancer research The Recording Academy Government Advocacy CommitteeUSC Business Cinematic Arts Program Advisory BoardNamed Billboard's top 100 POWER PLAYERS for 2018Media Play News Magazine's Top 40 under 40http://godigitalmg.com/Jake Kheel is a sustainability innovator, author, and award-winning documentary filmmaker. For sixteen years he has confronted social and environmental challenges in the tourism industry as Vice President of Grupo Puntacana Foundation in the Dominican Republic. The foundation has pioneered numerous ground-breaking initiatives, launching the first Zero Waste project in the country, as well as leading one of the most expansive coral reef restoration initiatives in the Caribbean. Under his leadership, Grupo Puntacana Foundation has received numerous international awards for its environmental programs, including awards from World Tourism and Travel Council, Conde Nast Traveler, Travel & Leisure, and National Geographic Traveler. His book, Waking the Sleeping Giant: Unlocking the Hidden Power of Business to Save Our Planet, uses examples from his vast experience in Punta Cana to demonstrate how companies can drive breakthroughs in sustainability.Jake is on the Board of the Center for Responsible Tourism (CREST) and former President of the National Association of Businesses for Environmental Protection (ECORED) in the Dominican Republic, an association of nearly 100 prominent companies committed to sustainability.Jake co-directed and produced the award-winning documentary film Death by a Thousand Cuts, which explores Dominican-Haitian deforestation and escalating human conflict on the border. The film was acquired by Participant Media and Univision and screened at three dozen international film festivals. He is currently producing a hosted documentary series, Island Naturalist, to be released in 2022.Jake has a Master's in Environmental Management from Cornell University and a B.A. from Wesleyan University. http://www.jakekheel.com/ The Douglas Coleman Show now offers audio and video promotional packages for music artists as well as video promotional packages for authors.

EIA and IEA are out with projections for emissions and fossil fuel consumption. And they don't look good. On our current policy trajectory, there is no peak in sight, according to EIA By 2050, we will likely see a 50% increase in energy consumption. And even though renewables will be the fastest-growing new source of energy, hydrocarbon liquid fuels will meet the majority of demand.That means emissions could rise through 2050, absent massive changes to policy.In July, the International Energy Agency issued a similar analysis showing that carbon emissions will hit record levels in the coming years. And that spending packages around the world — even at historic levels — are still not enough. How do we make sense of this sobering analysis?Plus, Wood Mackenzie is out with a new analysis of global energy storage trends, showing that storage deployments are set to triple this year. Most of that growth is coming from America and China, which account for 70% of installations. What are the applications, technologies and markets that will dominate this growth?Finally, Europe is in a crisis headed into winter. Natural gas is the second-most confused fuel in Europe — and prices are 6 times higher than they were in the spring.A confluence of factors — rapidly rising demand all at once, lower production than expected from Russia, low storage in Europe, lower-than-expected hydro and wind production — are contributing to the problem. What could alleviate the crisis? And does this put strain on Europe's climate ambitions headed into COP26?The Energy Gang is brought to you by Bloom Energy.

Green Beauty Conversations by Formula Botanica | Organic & Natural Skincare | Cosmetic Formulation | Indie Beauty Business

Welcome to this Green Beauty Opinion on the sustainability of the beauty industry. Formula Botanica CEO and podcast host Lorraine Dallmeier shares her own views on the main takeaways from the previous episode with guest Anna Teal of the British Beauty Council. Lorraine, a chartered environmentalist herself, praises the British Beauty Council's 2020 report ‘Courage to Change' which raises the industry's unsustainable practices and challenges it to change. But, she asks if the industry can ever do more than pay lip service to sustainability if rampant consumption of beauty products lies at the heart of its economic model. There needs to be a complete rethink in the way the entire sector operates, from manufacturers, retailers and buyers to the media right down to individual shoppers. Lorraine is astonished that the beauty industry, while talking sustainability, has gone silent on the elephant in the room: its traditional model of volume-driven profit. After all, we can't shop our way to sustainability. Listen in for a thought-provoking five minutes that challenges us to be the voice of change and integrity, making the beauty industry better and more sustainable.

"We are all unqualified, and that is a beautiful place to be. Just keep learning and growing." Christine Soule In the course of life, we go through different experiences that largely shape our present selves. Some of these we have control of and some we don't, yet they all prepare us for a greater purpose ahead. Our guest today, Christine Soule, has been through the most challenging moments in her life. Yet, she overcame them and now uses her experiences to provide life changing opportunities for women undergoing similar circumstances as she did in her community. Christine Soule's parents were divorced when she was only five years old. For the remainder of her childhood, she only saw her dad a handful of times. Her mom was married four times, and she considers her to be her absolute hero. All her mum's marriages except the last were filled with adultery, abuse, neglect, and addiction. Christine has three biological siblings, of which two of her brothers were raised by her dad, whereas her sister bounced back and forth. She met another fifteen of them at her dad's funeral. Her sister ended up having an affair with her adopted father, which made her sister become her stepmom and her dad her brother-in-law. This made her begin to spiral out of control.  Christine began doing drugs and alcohol at thirteen, and by the time she was seventeen, she was pregnant with her first baby girl. Less than two years later, she had identical twin boys. While living a gay lifestyle, Christine was also a drug addict and an alcoholic being abused and trafficked. She then realized she can't live like this any longer and that her babies deserved more. One day, Christine fell to her knees, and I cried out to God, "if you are real, take my life - it's yours!" Right then, she tangibly felt the power and presence of God, and she knew He was real. She knew He could change her life and that she needed to put her trust in Him. She ended up throwing away all of the drugs and alcohol and never had a desire, temptation or withdrawal since! She was completely set free and has never turned back since.  Today, she is married to the most amazing man on planet earth, and they have five children and two grandbabies. They have followed hard after God, and as a result, feel so abundantly blessed in every way. In today's episode, Christine will talk about her passion for helping women on the verge of being homeless and her motivation to bring out the potential of people around her. Listen in! Social Media: http://christinesoule.com/   https://www.facebook.com/Christinesoulewriter/about/ https://www.instagram.com/authorchristinesoule/g My parents were divorced when I was five years old, started doing drugs at the age of 10, got pregnant with my first child at 17 years, and less than two years later, I had identical twin boys. [2:49] I hated the world, and one day at 21, I fell to my knees, cried out to God to take my life, and I so tangibly felt the power and presence of God. [3:15] My experience set me out on this journey of figuring out who this Jesus guy is and how to survive with my three babies. [3:42] I wrote a check to the only person I knew who went to a Christian church and is also the person I've been married to for 24 years. [4:15] I went from extreme poverty to marrying what I believe is the most generous man in the world who allowed me to live a life of philanthropy. [4:37] For many years, I had the opportunity to pour into people's lives working with other organizations to have an impact. [5:46] One day I was driving down the road and encountered a homeless woman sitting on the side of the road. [6:00] At that moment in my car, I knew that I needed to go and make an impact, and that's where providence heights began. [6:42] There are so many amazing organizations that work with the homeless, and for us, we target to get them before they end up with all of the trauma of being homeless. [7:02] All of us, at some point in our lives have been at the edge of the cliff and the next critical steps that we take determines whether we start to fall off that cliff. [7:54] We are all about prevention, and when we bring them in, we offer entrepreneurial skills where we discover who they are and let them run with it. [8:40] We are in the Red Lion Hotel in Bellevue, Washington, with 88 rooms available to us in the first year and a plan to expand to 138 rooms in the second year. [13:24] We are focused on having a spirit of excellence in everything that we do so that when we bring our next group of ladies in, the original ones will be training the next group. [14:11] We partner with Union gospel mission and other shelters in the area, so we're like step two for the women or preventive before they end up homeless. [15:34] We have amazing structures where we ask that they focus on programs working on their collective or life coaching. [16:44] Commercial break. [19:52] We have a vision that we're going to have apartment complexes with retail space, office space, and apartment complexes for everyday people to live in and women in need. [21:51] Everything we make at Providence heights 100% rolls right back into caring for people in need. [22:43] The objective is to create more and more buildings to house more and more people, set them free, and launch them into their destiny. [23:06] Amazing donors, friends, and partners that we have are how we're funding this. [24:04] Sustainability has been a real focus from the very beginning, and it is critical, not only for us but also for the ladies. [25:53] Believe in yourself, go for it, and go big. There's so much potential and purpose in a person's life. [28:06] So many people get stuck in the career they started in, yet they have zero desire to do it, so start to pursue your passion and be creative. [28:14] …………………..…..

Suddenly everyone is talking about green hydrogen. From South Africa to the United Arab Emirates. From China to Utah. Governments and developers are eyeing hydrogen as a decarbonization tool. But the rush is also raising lots of questions: Where will hydrogen be most useful? How do you create a supply chain to support it? And how can we ensure it has climate integrity?For answers, we turned to two experts who are obsessing over the future of hydrogen: Janice Lin and Stephen Lamm.Janice Lin is the founder and CEO of Strategen. And she's president of the green hydrogen coalition. Stephen Lamm is the director of sustainability at Bloom Energy, a company deploying zero-carbon solutions like green hydrogen.With so much renewed attention on the resource, we brought Janice and Stephen together for a discussion about where green hydrogen tech, markets, and applications are headed.

She was so excited to talk to them about her most passionate subject, climate change, and to find out that they care about saving the world (especially for future generations) as much as she does.Most people don't think about how their favorite bands contribute to healing our planet. According to a study published in the academic journal Popular Music in 2019, five Scottish touring bands collectively created 19,314 kg (approx. 21 tons) of carbon emissions between the months of April and September. The average yearly carbon emissions per person globally, according to The Nature Conservancy, is four tons.Lake Street Dive strives to make a difference. Drummer Mike Calabrese, a passionate environmentalist, has taken the lead in educating his fellow band members about climate change and inspiring them to take action. At their shows, they've created a culture of environmentalism by allowing only reusable water bottles and utensils—and of course by recycling. They have also partnered with Cool Effect, a carbon offsetting non-profit, to support environmental efforts that help underserved communities around the world. One beneficiary is the Los Santos Wind Power Project, which intends to provide clean energy to 50,000 people in the Los Santos region of Costa Rica. Their latest album, Obviously, includes the song “Making Do” about the effects of global warming on the lives of young people. Calabrese and lead singer Rachael Price discuss their experiences as an eco-conscious touring band, including their politics in their art, and how people can overcome their fears about our changing world in order to make it better for everyone. Resources mentioned in this episode:IPCC: AR6 Climate Change 2021Additional Resources:Cambridge: Do music festivals communities address environmental sustainability and how?

“Companies are really recognizing that this concept of greenwashing, and these bold ambitious assertions that they can't back up, that's no longer, that's not transparency. That is risk, and that exposing an organization to very concrete reputational and other risks….I think it's all about transparency driving trust, but it has to be credible, it has to be authentic and it has to be meaningful.” Kristen Sullivan, Deloitte Sustainability Compliance on Electric Ladies Podcast A new report from the Journal Nature Climate Change reports that 85% of the world's population is negatively affected by climate change. With that report and the big UN Climate Conference known as COP26 coming up in days – and President Biden's infrastructure bills moving through Congress – we have been focusing on risk and the changing role of companies in society.  So, what do companies really think about their role today and how to report on it, called ESG reporting for environment, social and governance? Listen to Kristen Sullivan, head of Deloitte's Sustainability and Supply Chain Social Compliance Services talk about it with Electric Ladies host Joan Michelson in this important and engaging interview. The management consulting firms have a unique perspective on this, because they analyze trends and advise companies across industries.    You'll hear about: The need companies have to define the attributes of ESG that drive performance “in a data-driven way” so they can “evaluate long term value”? The critical role of transparency, primarily to build trust, and how and why companies can struggle with it. The impact of the rapid increased prioritizing of ESG from a “nice to have” to “must have,” especially over the past couple of years due to the confluence of covid, George Floyd, and climate change. How companies now have a broader definition of what drives risk including “financial risk, operational risk, reputational risk” and how they can systematically integrate those factors to find seize opportunities. Plus, insightful career advice …. “And I think that especially through a broader, sort of ESG-purpose lens, that establishing a competency in a business context (is important in your career), whether that's marketing or finance or supply chain or operations, whatever it is, and layering on a differentiated perspective – whether it's climate risk, whether it's societal consideration – to really be able to deliver on that traditional competence but at such a higher level, and through that value-enhancing lens.” Kristen Sullivan on the Electric Ladies podcast   Read Joan's related Forbes articles here too.

In episode 253, Kestrel welcomes Hilary Jochmans, the founder of consulting firm Politically In Fashion, to the show. Politically In Fashion & Hilary's name have been popping up a lot in the fashion space, after she helped pen an official letter to President Biden, calling for him to appoint a fashion czar. “You think about all the different areas that touch fashion and fashion, in respect, it touches as well. You've got immigration, you've got trade, you've got tax issues, you've got water resource issues, you have sustainability issues, you have labor issues, you have a myriad of issues that are currently handled in Washington in a dozen different agencies. So, the idea of the fashion czar was to pull someone who could look at all these different spaces (sort of at the 30,000 foot level) and say — 'okay, here's where we need to have everyone come together'.” -Hilary Have you heard any of the chatter advocating for a fashion czar? And you may be asking - what in the world is a czar anyways? Throughout history, the U.S. government has appointed czars for various reasons — they have focused on the auto industry, drugs, energy, and beyond. A czar is basically someone senior in the administration who has a very defined role and mission and most importantly - someone who has the ear of the President.   Hilary helped pen a letter to President Biden earlier this year, requesting that his administration appoint a FASHION czar to help regulate fashion like other big sectors — and to help elevate the issues and needs of the fashion & retail industry directly to the President. This is just a glimpse of what we explore on the show. It's all about the politics of fashion — from requesting a fashion czar to breaking down what The Green Guides mean, to unveiling more ways we can all get involved, this conversation is centered around deconstructing how policy intersects with fashion and sustainability. Quotes & links from the conversation: “President Biden, Appoint A Fashion Czar!” in Fast Company, the original article by Elizabeth Segran that sparked the idea to send a letter to President Biden “I think the days of just ignoring government and pretending that there's not going to be regulation — I think those days are over.” -Hilary If you don't know who your members of Congress are — go to congress.gov and type in your address, and they will pop up. In their last update (2012), The Green Guides DID NOT touch on sustainability and they DID NOT touch on organic and natural. “I think it's important — even if we don't define the word sustainability — that we put some sort of guardrails on the term, cause if you're just throwing the term around — this is sustainable, that's sustainable, and there's nothing to back it up, it's gonna lose all meaning.” -Hilary “Speaking of beauty and cosmetics, The Cosmetics Act has not been updated since 1934.” -Hilary “FTC's Updated ‘Green Guides' Could Clamp Down on Greenwashing” in WWD “The Politics Of Fashion” in Marie Claire “Allbirds, ThredUp, More Ask Biden to Appoint ‘Fashion Czar'” in WWD ““We Have The Power Of The Purse”: Why It's Our Duty To Keep Up The Good Things Happening In Fashion” in Vogue Federal Advocacy Guide by Politically In Fashion Green Guides 101 by Politically In Fashion Politically In Fashion website > Follow Politically In Fashion on Instagram >

The decisions we make this decade are the most important in human history. You have to ask yourself: if our economic system actively destroys the biosphere and fails to meet many people's basic needs, what actually the point of it all? With COP26 weeks away, answering the call in climate action and equity for all, how will we emerge and redesign our world, our systems, supply chains, and economies? In episode 62, Sheri Hinish (SupplyChainQueen) explores key themes in our world's transformation with two thought leaders - Mark Perera (Founder of Procurement Leaders and CEO of Vizibl) + Peter Smith (CIPS and the epic OG of Procurement, literally). Mark and Peter have authored a new, provocative book called 'Procurement with Purpose' and encourage everyone to look deep in your supply chain to make a world of difference. (https://www.procurementwithpurpose.com/) Procurement with Purpose describes a powerful new movement - how organizations can use the money they spend with suppliers to help address these issues. That “buying power” is now being used to drive change across the business world.  Mark and Peter share case studies from firms including Unilever and Bayer that have taken the lead in Procurement with Purpose, as well as good practice advice on implementing these ideas  at all stages of the buying cycle. We unpack supplier diversity, and development. and insightful analysis of  “purposeful business” concepts and describe the key environmental, social and economic issues that can be addressed through these approaches.  Both an inspirational call to action, and a practical guide to implementing real change, Procurement with Purpose suggests that we can still change the world for the better thru disruptive thinking and disrupting incrementalism in sustainable transformation.

Because of the pervasive media coverage of Trumpism, Brexit, and the like, it is easy to assume that the dominant sentiment around the world is that mass migration is a new and terrifying phenomenon that could upend the world as we know it. However, that couldn't be further from the truth, and we've brought Parag Khanna, founder of FutureMap, to explain why. Not only has most of the world remained pragmatic about the topic, but mass migration has been occurring for decades, and although there are some exceptions, in the majority of cases, societies have absorbed the newcomers and the newcomers have assimilated remarkably well. Parag is an Asian-American who has also lived in Europe, and his personal perspective combined with the in-depth research that he has conducted around migration, sustainability, community, governance, citizenship and more, reveals a lot about what drives us to do the things we do, and offers a glimpse of what our future could look like.   Key Points From This Episode:   •   Parag shares his thoughts on why the US should (hypothetically) buy Greenland. •   The premise of Parag's new book, Move. •   Two megatrends that are currently shaping the world. •   Four potential futures that Parag thinks we are heading for. •   Immigration policies in the UK, US, and Canada, and what these indicate about the future. •   Changes in migration dynamics since Parag's school days, and what is driving those changes. •   The sentiment amongst European politicians about migrants that Parag has picked up through his research. •   How societies have historically dealt with mass migration. •   High volumes of migration that take place in East and South-East Asia. •   Value that lies in having civilizational confidence. •   Parag explains how Germany is breaking open the definition of what German-ness is. •   A brief analysis of the migration situation in the UAE. •   Primary factors which motivate the migration of Western expats. •   The nuanced nature of citizenship. •   Sustainability, mobility, and connectivity from the perspective of the youth of today, and Parag's opinion on where these ideas emerged from. •   How definitions of community have changed, and how they are changing now. •   The important role that cities are going to play in coming migrations. •   Parag explains what the mobile real estate phenomenon is, and what is driving it. •   Why Parag does not think de-urbanization is a major trend, although it is being talked about as if it is. •   Plans that Parag has for the future.   Links Mentioned in Today's Episode:   https://www.paragkhanna.com/ (Parag Khanna) https://futuremap.io/ (Future Map) https://www.chartercitiesinstitute.org/ (Charter Cities Institute) https://www.facebook.com/Charter-Cities-Institute-424204888015721/ (Charter Cities Institute on Facebook) https://twitter.com/CCIdotCity (Charter Cities Institute on Twitter) Support this podcast

Disruptors for GOOD
Creating Sustainable Jobs for Women Through Fashion and Empowering Them to a Life Beyond the Sex Trade - Colleen and Maggie Clines // Anchal

In this episode of the Disruptors for Good podcast, I speak with Colleen and Maggie Clines, the Co-founder and Creative Director of Anchal. Anchal is an innovative nonprofit creating sustainable jobs for women through fashion and empowering them to a life beyond the sex trade.With backgrounds in design, sisters Colleen and Maggie Clines lead Anchal by placing design at the center of the brands everyday practice. It all started in a design studio. Colleen Clines was taking a graduate seminar at the Rhode Island School of Design that took her on a trip to India in 2009, a trip that changed the trajectory of her life forever. While in India, Colleen was introduced to the exploitive world of the commercial sex trade and the extreme lack of opportunity for women in the community. It was in this moment she was inspired to design more than beautiful landscapes, she was determined to create positive social and environmental change using design.While Colleen was scheming ways to collaborate with the amazing women she'd met in India, her sister Maggie was in college working on socially conscious architecture projects -- discovering creative ways to repurpose a retired uranium facility. Maggie and Colleen would trade stories on their design experiences and wonder how they could unite their passions.After returning home, Colleen and her classmates raised $400 by selling handmade notebooks and notecards. They used the funds to purchase a sewing machine, sewing instruction, materials and a stipend for the first collective of artisans.In 2010, Anchal officially became a 501(c)3 non-profit and we expanded the project by partnering with Vatsalya, an NGO in Ajmer, India. In 2012, Maggie joined her sister to co-lead Anchal and stitch by stitch, a global sisterhood started to grow.   Today, Anchal has trained and employed over 500 women and is an internationally recognized brand known for award-winning designs and handmade, one-of-a-kind pieces that empower exploited women living in India and Kentucky.Listen to more Causeartist podcasts here.Check out:ImpactInvestor.io - Discover impact investors from around the world.Podcast Made with TransistorPodcast cover design Made with CanvaBuild amazing web platforms with Webflow

This week, I'm heading an hour north of Toronto to hang out with the infectious and delightful Cathy Nesbitt: visionary, bean queen, worm harvester and laughter yoga coach. This episode is medicine for the soul.  Cathy was way ahead of her time. She talks with me about worms: how she got turned onto them and then how they became her business in 2002 when the Toronto landfill shut down. We talk about the kindness of sustainability, life without a cell phone, entrepreneurship, her vision for creating communities and human connection through local food harvests, the serendipitous meeting that led her to laughter yoga and her mission to create a more peaceful and simplistic world without waste.
