It was a matter of pride, as President of @BombayChamber, to host #UrbanThinkersCampus Series 2 in partnership with @UNHABITAT on "Financing Recovery for Resilient and Sustainable Cities #TakeAction4Cities #COVID19 Image
Enriching discussion with global thought leaders on #sustainability, urban planning, city administration & finance. Dialogue centred around sustainable development of urban centres & solutions on making cities resilient, particularly in the current context of #COVID19. @UNHABITAT Image
Globally, there is sufficient funds but it's still difficult to get enough cash for #development. The silver lining? We can evolve #solutions to correct the situation. The best time to act for #sustainable cities was 20 years ago. The next best time? Today! @UNHABITAT

Today, small electric fire in @Primark‘s Myanmar factory Amber Stone. 1 exit in whole factory (no emergency exit). Security blocked exit as workers tried to exit. Injuries are from workers trampling eachother trying to get out. Same factory where unionists just fired and beaten.
Workers have been reaching out to Primark for weeks, with no assistance from the brand. Brand continues to tweet about ‘Equality’ and ‘Sustainability’ literally as workers in their factory have had their organizing rights trampled upon, been beaten by company thugs, and now this.
Historically, factory owners have neglected garment workers well-being until catastrophe strikes and they die by the thousands (ie Rana Plaza, Triangle Shirtwaist, etc). @Primark is on same path. #sustainable #fastfashion

Last year I designed an intermodal #mobility service concept to establish a more #sustainable yet comfortable way through the city. I did this merely to show that there are #alternatives to the car and that #design can help to make them more likely. (thread about my master's 1/5)
Today we still argue about federal subsidies for new fuel cars (to help car manufacturer out of the corona crisis) and I feel like pointing out good, human-centered alternatives to car-based mobility in cities is more important than ever. (2/5)
Therefore I wrote a few words about my master's project, describing the underlying attitude of design as something that can transform society through many partial steps.

Honored to speak at the @UN @ECA_Official. I truly believe that entrepreneurs are the future of #Africa and #sustainable economic liberation is the key to empowering our societies.
Entrepreneurs are the force that will ensure those with power who promise liberation understand what that means. True economic liberation delivered the greatest economic growth in human history in the United States, and it can do the same across #Africa.
True, inclusive, sustainable economic liberation = strong rule of law, respect for property rights, regulation that encourages investment, women’s full participation & governments that respect their people. Honored to reinforce this truth at @ECA_Official. Thanks for having me.

Range anxiety is a real concern for changing our mindset around #ElectricVehicles.

Just how close to the left of the needle can we go?

Tomorrow I’ve got a few offsite #CSIRO meetings between #Newcastle & #Sydney, so why not come on:
“A day in the life of an #EV

Starting, NOW!
Off on the first leg of the #EV trip, leaving work for the day: I have an 8am meeting so will get a head start.

Leaving the charging point behind & starting with a ~full charge + range of 429 km.

Bring on tomorrow’s #RangeAnxiety experiment!
@TheDriven_io @AEVA_National #CSIRO
First leg of #RangeAnxiety experiment 🧪went as expected:

16 km trip from Office to Home, 15 km reduction in range.

Now to take the dog 🐕 for a bush walk & await the next experimental leg.

It's so heartwarming to receive messages from new & transitioning vegans, taking the step to make ethical choices for the animals.
consider.

Veganism is a lifestyle, & so I wanted to create a thread to help with common, everyday items 💚 #Veganuary #vegan #veganville
1. Cosmetics 💄

Not only will you want to avoid products that have been tested on animals, but you will also want items that don't contain byproducts.
I have found @EthicalElephant to be a wonderful resource. Although its a US site, the brands are global. #beauty #Vegan #Veganuary

It was a great pleasure to today host a one of a kind #forestry #WaterStewardship workshop with members of the SA forestry industry under the theme "Water Source Partnerships: collaboration for a water secure future"
On the back of the launch of the #WaterMasterPlan yesterday, @ColvinH2O opened the workshop with a fresh perspective on the role of the #forestry sector in the "just transition to a green economy" #WaterStewardship #Partnerships
A conversation on 'unlocking the catchment economy' is an essential one that must be had between the #forestry and #water sector @ColvinH2O added #ForestWaterNexus #CollectiveAction

At #FORCE2019 @npscience getting everyone warmed up for a panel on "Who will influence the success of #preprints in biology and to what end?"
@npscience . @npscience laid important foundations for the discussion: (1) be aware of stakeholders' cultural backgrounds and the influences on the their viewpoints; and (2) it's always a balance between individual vs collaborative gains. #Force2019
@npscience First panelist @ReaderMeter compared #preprints to a staging area, akin to how we would interact with an #opensource project, where all sorts of collaboration could happen and #openscience practised 🌟 #Force2019

Of course we should eat more vegetables and less meat, but the lie, that says that burning the Amazon, to plant GM Soya to ship across the world, is #sustainable is just that.

A lie.

Next time you sip a Soya Latté in a compostable cup, toast Monsanto, as they toast the Amazon.
In Ireland, if you want to farm you buy or lease land at €15,000 an acre.

In Brazil, if you want to farm, you buy or borrow a box of matches.

Monsanto will sell you GM seed that is #glyphosate resistant.

No weeding needed and Europe will buy it.
In Europe, we are being conned by the lie, that is Soya

Burning the #Amazon to plant and poison GM Soya for our plant based diets and compostable cups makes #PalmOil production look green!

Eat less meat, but look local, look sustainable and look beyond the hype.

Thank you

| #draadje | Pampus sluit zich aan bij @wemakethecity ​festival en neemt je zondag 23 juni op sleeptouw voor o.a. een duurzame rondleiding over het eiland. Echt een unieke kans om hierbij te zijn en – ons kent ons – het kost maar een prikkie!

📷 Tiny Pampus World by @wdejager
Dit keer geen verhalen over het beroemde gezegde of over de militairen die klaar waren voor de vijand die nimmer kwam... Wel krijg je in kannen en kruiken te horen over hoe we bewust bezig zijn met een schone en mooie toekomst.
#wemakethecity

📷 Pampus Island by @mrperezident
We tonen je hoe het koesteren van erfgoed hand in hand kan gaan met hypermoderne plannen om tot een geheel duurzame zelfvoorziening te komen op het gebied van water en energie.

#Climatechange got you down? These 50 people will cheer you up. This month: I'm featuring @grist's 2019 #Grist50 Fixers here on my feed. There's more than one reason for you to feel good about the future! grist.org/grist-50/2019/
Meet Ploy Achakulwisut (@_aploy). She’s got climate #activism down to a science. Ploy dedicates her work — such as research connecting #AirPollution in the southwest U.S. to premature mortality — to furthering @climate awareness. #Grist50
grist.org/grist-50/2019/…
What did it take for Robin Amer (@rsamer) to create an award-winning investigative #podcast on #environmental justice? Three years, more than 65 interviews, and one lawsuit against the @FBI. @thecitypod talks trash — and listeners love it. #Grist50

For the first time ever, movers and shakers met to discuss #data needs, available #policy options and the opportunities for different sectors in the transition towards #healthy and #sustainable #foodsystems in the #Baltic region

#nordicsolutions norden.org/en/news/baltic…
Participants jointly mapped forces at play in transition to more sustainable & healthy diets in Baltic region which ensured:
🌟High levels of participation and local ownership
🌟Common narrative & theory of change
🌟Better understanding of priority areas + system leverage points
With agreement on the urgency to act and the system leverage points, 3 joint projecs were conceived:
🍽️🌍 Define & develop criteria for sustainble healthy Baltic diet
💻👩‍🔬 Coordinate existing data across the region
🌬️💡Create Baltic future food “lab” for new innovative ideas

To kick off #Sustainuary then, let's talk about #dairy alternatives like nut juice, oat juice and various other #plantbased drinks. We've never had more choice, but what are the actual #sustainability credentials of these products vs animal milk? #Veganuary
#Dairy production has received widespread criticism for its #carbonfootprint .
The average UK dairy system produces around 1.2Kg Co2eq. per Kg milk . However this varies hugely, mainly depending on the cows' diets and how much fertiliser is used on the pasture. #sustainuary
The most #sustainable #dairy farms in the UK can have carbon footprints as low as 0.5 KgCO2 eq. per Kg milk produced, which are comparable to many dairy alternatives. #Sustainuary #Veganuary

In late-August of 2010, my dear first-cousin was diagnosed with inoperable, non-curable, small-cell lung #cancer. He and I were raised like #siblings and cared for one another as brother and sister, a very close-knit family.
My #cousin was an amazing man, husband, and father to twin boys; who were only 14 when he died in September 2017. He died at his home, surrounded by his family and friends…just how he’d wished.
Of course, he only had these wishes after his experiences spending extended periods of time in clinics, hospitals, and laboratories. Blood draws, lung scans, injections, medications, #chemotherapy, hospitalizations, emergency room visits from all the awful side-effects of his...

.@1NewsNZ recently aired a segment on our use of biochar and vermicast to reduce waste and enhance our soils. It's a great little piece with James Dicey, our Viticulturalist. #sustainable #viticulture #pinotcentral #mtdifficulty #nzwine mtdifficulty.nz/blogs/news/one…
Quote below from James Dicey
"Recently we have taken the next step by using the compost as a feed source for tiger worms to turn the already valuable compost into vermicast (or worm castings). #wormfarming #centralotago #nzwine

Just got to Davos. Ready to fill the leadership vacuum with big ideas. My focus will be on privilege and women. Only going to #womanels #methree. Also, my alligator-skin boots got snow on them, anyone have a blow drier or an FT I can use to dry them off?
Thread 1/n: Small ideas feel big when I'm in my Gulfstream, so here it goes: We have to innovate on innovation. The 7th industrial revolution disrupts AND displaces. Artificial intelligence and blockchain can only solve resurgent populism with #compassion.
2/n We elites are critical to making this debate glocalized. Thought leadership also involves thought stewardship. Communities form the core of our economies. Blue collar workers must be re-conceived as #newcollar workers. Code is key.
