Long-Term Thinking in a Short Form World

Long-Term Thinking in a Short Form World

This year's SGS is about Thinking Longer-Term, challenging old assumptions. Certainly we live that short-term harried, sound bite, everyone-has-a-camera mindset every day in our business and personal lives. It creates an epidemic where we don't think about sustainable solutions and leads us to jump to conclusions that satisfy a short-term symptom, but leave the long-term root cause unaddressed or festering. This problem of short-term thinking is just as epidemic in the social sector as it is in the corporate and public sectors, for a number of reasons - donors like new and innovative and don't stick to a problem long enough to give it sufficient resources; we often don't execute social programs with enough fidelity (and again,...Read More

The Social Good Brazil Program last year was launched at a great summit, we had more than 1 thousand in the seminar venue to an additional 10 thousand live stream access. This year we´re heading for a smaller summit in terms of audience in the seminar venue, as we´re focusing on a niche target public of Brazilian decision makers on the social innovation field, but we keep expecting great live stream access and we have almost the same amount of speakers this year compared to last year, taking into consideration it was a three-day seminar compared to an one-day this year. My tips to those interested in organizing great +SocialGood events/ meetups would be: Deliver value! Start by setting clear goals and target...Read More

If we don’t smarten up in consumption, scientists estimate that humans will consume twice as many resources as the planet can support by 2050. The consequences grow more and more severe as forests shrink, water becomes scarcer, arable lands diminish, and the level of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere approaches a deadly point of no return.

Bill McKibben Article - The Reckoning in Rolling Stone

http://act.350.org/signup/reckoning/?akid=2095.461888.xr2h5z&rd=1&t=2 Dear friends, Last week, Rolling Stone magazine published a piece of mine that I think may be the most important writing I've done since The End of Nature, way back in 1989. (And no, it's not the profile of Justin Bieber.) Warning: it’s pretty long, and it’s not entirely cheerful. Indeed, it shows that the business plans of the fossil fuel industry will wreck the planet -- that they’ve already got enough carbon in their reserves to drive the heat past anyone’s definition of okay. Click here to read and share the piece: www.350.org/rollingstone If you read it, you’ll get a sense of the direction that the climate movement (and 350.org) is headed. In the United States, we've got iconic battles underway in every part of the country and against all forms of fossil fuel. We're fighting the Keystone XL pipeline in Texas and in Congress, coal exports in the Pacific Northwest, mountaintop removal coal mining in West Virginia, and fracking all across the country. We're pushing US politicians hard to withdraw their support for wasteful and dangerous fossil fuel subsidies, and we're just getting started. Across the globe, we're holding workshops to train the next generation of climate activists. Every day we're watching the number of energized, self-organized local groups tick up. We're inspired by the brave organizing work being done around the world to confront the fossil fuel industry, from Borneo to Kosovo. And we're excited about what's to come. All this is beginning to coalesce into a true movement against the heart of this most dangerous industry. I'm awfully glad you're a part of it, and I hope you're managing to stay cool and safe. On we go, Bill McKibben for the crew at 350.org P.S. And if you have reactions to and thoughts about that Rolling Stone piece please send them in to "thoughts@350.org". The analysis -- the math -- that's in there is going to form the basis of a lot of our work going forward, and it would be useful to hear how it strikes you.
