Very excited to work with the fantastic #sustainability scholars of @ESCP_bs @ESCPknowledge @carboneval @aacquier @FrankFigge!

FFS southern settlers stop building your careers by gathering mountains of money to pay yourselves to save the Inuit with greenhouses. How do I have to say this every gott-dam year?! There is a national collective amnesia that allows money to be wasted doing this over and over.
It’s been a really hard week. I don’t have the bandwidth to look into this right now and not scream curse words at people. Anyone in #nativejournalism interested in looking at how many greenhouse projects have wasted people’s money in the last 20 years?
They inevitably get positive press written by transient white journalists who are in the North for a few months. Then the Orgs or team members get some awards for innovation/social/environmental work. Then they go silent & disappear when cost benefit analyses show it’s pointless.

Trying something here. Been thinking a lot about my role/responsibility in the #socialinnovation sector lately and one of the things that always plagues me when I talk about my experiences is that, I had never truly felt racialized until I was in social innovation spaces. (1/9)
