Yesterday at #WCEU, I had a brief conversation on contributing to open source as a company. I referred to #sustainability as an approach to doing business which embeds but also goes beyond the environmental aspects of the term.

Let me try and connect a few dots… 🧵
What do topics like sustainability, accessibility, progressive enhancement, ethics, diversity, and data privacy have in common?

1️⃣ Tech people talk about them a lot (at least in my neck of the web).
2️⃣ Few companies incorporate them well *as a whole*.

Why is that?
Because change is hard. And being the proverbial ‘change you want to see in the world’ – in an economy dominated by mega corps, perhaps having to answer to investors, certainly needing to drive revenue, probably while battling a bazillion problems – can feel near impossible.

Generally speaking #infrastructure is defined as the basic #physical systems of any #business, #region, or that of any #nation... including #transportation systems, #communication #networks, #sewage, #water supply & #electrical #grid systems. #BuildBackBetter #logistics #stimulus
Various types of #infrastructure #construction based projects typically drive the bulk of conversations amongst those of us vested in the arduous process of "progress" moving forward.
#Highway improvement, #street & #road maintenance & #bridge building commonly take center stage.
Mass #transit, #airport & #airways, #municipal #WaterSupply, #waste management along with waste #Water #management,
#power generation & #transmission, #HazardousWaste removal & #storage ALL must be considered while addressing basic underlying societal frameworks. #sustainability

#Cardano is the most environmentally friendly #Cryptocurency because it has no use-case. It's pure scam, which makes it 100% clean.

Ride the scam up to no. 3 😈
$BNB is even more of a scam though; lazy copy-paste of an Ethereum testnet, fully centralized "crypto", so I feel that Cardano beating it to the number 3 spot is justified.

When people realize they can use $MATIC instead of $BNB .... 🔥🔥🔥
Reduce your CO2 emissions by putting your money into #Cardano $ADA

It consumes 0 energy because it doesn't do anything

And you won't have any money to spend on food, travel, entertainment etc which are all very carbon-intensive.

As I have publicly stated and often reiterated, Africa can’t and must not pay for the sins of others. Africa, the least emitter, continues to suffer the worst of the impacts of climate change and must be abundantly supported to adapt to a reality it did not cause.
At the @TonyElumeluFDN we empower young entrepreneurs across all 54 African countries, including thousands of young farmers who we support to build resilience and adapt to climate change. But we can collectively do more for our youth who are the most vulnerable to this crisis.
I urge all our global development partners, policy makers and governments to prioritise these young ones and I commend my friend @akin_adesina for co-championing this movement.

Students of the Graphic Era (Deemed to be University) in Uttarakhand have built an electric single-seater racing car's body with recycled paper. Using paper engineering principles, the students created the body with reprocessed Papier-mâché mixed with Plaster of Paris (PoP).
The team collected paper waste from the college premises and the neighbouring areas for the project. The vehicle 'C-Zero' is recyclable, waterproof as well as fireproof. Apart from this, it is lightweight (40 kgs) and cost-effective.
Usually, the electric racing cars' bodies are made out of carbon-fibre. A carbon-fibre car body costs approximately ₹3 lakh, while this cost around ₹1.78 lakh.

1/ yup, sounds more like a prison ship than a cruise ship. Could this, however, be a cover story to disincentivize customers to partake in cruises?
If we're talking about #sustainability, cruise ships are perhaps the epitome of #PeakConsumption.
2/ elites know this (but will keep their mega yachts, e.g., fraseryachts.com/en/yachts-for-…) but for Middle Class Joe & Jane punter?
Anybody with sense can see what the restrictions are?
A disincentive to travel & consumption.

My favorite paper project bears fruit: Creating #leadership collectives for #sustainability transformations. Here is what we have to say: bit.ly/3bbQmWW #openaccess 👇👇👇
We advocate for the creation of leadership collectives: groups of individuals from multiple organisations and sectors who lead transformational social change together through critical #reflection, #inclusivity and #care. Why these three values?
Leadership collectives require critical reflection to transform how collective leadership is defined; to challenge the existing structures in sustainability science and practice; and to respond to the complexity and uncertainty of sustainability transformations.

Sisa makanan boleh dijadikan sebagai biofuel. Hal ini adalah kerana sisa makanan mempunyai kandungan karbohidrat dan lipid yang menjadikan ia sumber yang sesuai untuk menghasilkan biofuel.
Usaha ini dapat mengurangkan kebergantungan kepada kawasan pembuangan sampah (landfill) dan mengurangkan pencemaran alam sekitar. Kawasan pembuangan sampah acap kali membebaskan gas rumah hijau seperti metana.
Ia juga menghasilkan leachate yang boleh menyebabkan pencemaran kepada kawasan tanah berdekatan. Proses penukaran sisa makanan kepada biofuel ini mengambil manfaat daripada respirasi anaerobik bakteria ke atas sisa makanan dalam ketiadaan oksigen.
