Wow. Our #naturenow film on Natural Climate Solutions just won two Webbys! Massive congrats to @tommustill, @trianglemonday, @GretaThunberg, @Charlie_Lat and the rest of the magnificent team.
Only yesterday it won best digital marketing campaign. I've never known a short film to have such an impact. It's had 60 million views already, and has changed the global conversation, bringing #NaturalClimateSolutions from the margins to the limelight.…

This is going to be a very important thread.

#SavingCapitalism with

Let's start here, with this misleading article shared by the GT account.

What is not shared is the primary focus:

"Focus of the meeting will be on renewing the concept of stakeholder #capitalism to overcome income inequality, societal division and the #climate crisis."

This #WEF release is new (Jan 14 2020) - but the focus & theme is not.

1/10 The spore-based idea spreader in me is all stirred up after last couple weeks in London, Cambridge, multiple stops in Brazil, so here's a little (peaceful) mushroom cloud of ideas as I resettle in NYC and recover from extreme #saudades after exposure to such great people.
2/10 Heard sense of urgency + diverse commitment to action at @volansjohn's 10 yr anniversary eve - appreciated call to positive imagination by @paulbunje paired w @kavpm + @cloverhogan's signal to hear voices of our youth (thinking: maybe also heed those of our own inner kids?)
