Giles Hutchins discusses the importance of reconnecting with nature and our inner nature to address the interconnected crisis facing humanity. He emphasizes the need for a shift in consciousness and a journey of becoming, where individuals reconnect with their own sovereignty and work with life. Hutchins shares his own experiences, including an out-of-body experience during a car accident, that have shaped his perspective and helped him be more courageous in times of challenge. He also highlights the importance of empathy and understanding in guiding individuals on their own journeys of self-discovery and transformation. Giles Hutchins emphasizes the importance of trust and overcoming fear in order to create meaningful change in our lives. He shares his personal experiences of leaving corporate life and starting Springwood Farm, highlighting the resistance and doubt he faced from others. Giles believes that true trust in life is the foundation for connecting with ourselves, others, and the natural world. He also discusses the need for a revolution within ourselves, not just in the external world, and the importance of working with both stillness and tension in order to be truly regenerative. Reconnecting with nature and our inner nature is essential to address the interconnected crisis facing humanity. Shifting consciousness and embarking on a journey of becoming allows individuals to reconnect with their own sovereignty and work with life. Personal experiences, such as out-of-body experiences, can shape one's perspective and provide courage in times of challenge. Empathy and understanding are crucial in guiding individuals on their own journeys of self-discovery and transformation. Trust in life and the courage to overcome fear are essential for creating meaningful change. Connecting with ourselves, others, and the natural world is key to living a regenerative life. Education should focus on bringing forth our true selves and creating conditions conducive to life.

Episode 184 Benedikt Boesel Save Our Soils Regenerative Farming Farm Rebellion Benedikt Bösel, a regenerative farmer, shares his journey of transforming a thousand hectares of sandy, dry German soils into a thriving ecosystem. He discusses the challenges he faced in implementing regenerative practices and the need for a shift in the agricultural system. Benedikt emphasizes the importance of reconnecting with nature and understanding the true value of agriculture. He also highlights the need for societal support and policy changes to create a more sustainable and resilient farming system. Benedikt Bösel shares his journey of starting a regenerative farm and the importance of inviting people to experience and understand the work they do. He emphasizes the need for systemic, ecological, and social innovation in agriculture. Benedikt highlights the role of partnerships and support from organizations like Follow Food and the Schmidt Heine family in the growth of his farm. He discusses the importance of reconnecting people with nature and making sustainable choices in food consumption. Benedikt also challenges the notion that cows are the problem and emphasizes their role in regenerative land use. Regenerative farming practices can transform degraded soils and create resilient ecosystems. The current agricultural system prioritizes mass production and cheap prices, leading to externalized costs and environmental degradation. Society needs to recognize the value of agriculture beyond food production and support the transition to regenerative practices. Collaboration between farmers, scientists, and policymakers is crucial for driving systemic change in the agricultural sector. Systemic, ecological, and social innovation is crucial in agriculture. Partnerships and support from organizations are essential for the growth of regenerative farms. Reconnecting people with nature and making sustainable food choices are important. Cows play a vital role in regenerative land use and should not be seen as the problem. Redefining the Value of Agriculture: Beyond Food Production Transforming Sandy Soils: The Journey of a Regenerative Farmer The Role of Cows in Regenerative Land Use Partnerships and Support for Regenerative Farms "We need to touch people's emotions, we need to touch people's hearts. That is the way forward in order to change the large system surrounding agriculture." "Agriculture and farming have to be at the epicenter of coolness. Farmers are the custodians of our world and future generations." #regenerativeagriculture #livinglab #landwirtschaft #boden #SDGs #davasus #rehkitz #rehwild #thermaldrone #drohne #landwirtschaft #biolandwirtschaft #regenerativeagriculture #raisingkids #ecosystems #onehealth #SDGs #brandenburg #gutundboesel #ackerpulco #marketgarden #biogemüse #jungpflanzen #brandenburg #farmlife #farmvlog#farming #landleben #farm #biolandwirtschaft #regenerative #farming #agriculture #soil #health #biodiversity #sustainability #regenerative agriculture #innovation #partnerships #sustainability #nature connection #food consumption #cowsInside Ideas by One Point 5 Media & Innovators Magazine.

Glenn A. Albrecht is an Honorary Associate in the School of Geosciences, The University of Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. He retired as Professor of Sustainability, at Walter Murdoch University, in mid-2014. He continues to work as an environmental philosopher and published a book, Earth Emotions, with Cornell University Press in 2019. Earth Emotions was published in French and Spanish in 2020 and in Dutch in 2024. In numerous publications and public talks over the last two decades, Dr Albrecht has developed the theme of the psychoterratic (psyche-earth), or negative and positive emotional states connected to the state of the Earth. New concepts, developed by him, are now becoming well-established in the international scholarly literature, new research theses, and as inspiration for many creative people in the arts and music. While he is best known for creating the concept of solastalgia, or the lived experience of negative environmental change, his most recent work develops the mega-meme of the 'Symbiocene', a future state where humans re-integrate with the rest of nature. A book of that title should be completed by the end of 2024. He currently lives at Blackheath on Gundungurra land in the Blue Mountains of NSW, Australia. Glenn Albrecht, an environmental philosopher, discusses the concepts of psychoterratic, solastalgia, and the symbiocene. He emphasizes the importance of developing new language and concepts to describe the emotional and psychological states connected to the state of the Earth. Albrecht believes that the current language used in sustainability and eco-literacy is inadequate and easily misused. He introduces the concept of the symbiocene, a future state where humans reintegrate with the rest of nature, as a paradigm shift from the Anthropocene. He sees symbiosis as the foundation for life and a key to creating a better future. Glenn emphasizes the need to focus on the practical application of symbiosis in order to shift away from extractive and exploitative economic practices. He highlights the importance of transdisciplinary thinking and breaking down disciplinary boundaries to understand the value of life and the need for harmony with all living beings. Glenn discusses the potential for using biotechnology, such as mycelium-based coffins and mycelium bricks, as sustainable alternatives to current technologies. He envisions a future where everything we use can be returned to the cycles of life and where the joy of life and positive Earth emotions are nurtured.

The concept of the symbiocene, a future state where humans reintegrate with the rest of nature, offers a paradigm shift from the Anthropocene. Symbiosis is the foundation for life and a key to creating a better future. Resonance and frequency play a role in conveying emotions and can be a form of language beyond spoken words.

Episode 182 Thomas Rödding Digital Product Passport Thomas Rödding, CEO of Narravero, discusses the Digital Product Passport and its significance in the context of the European Union's Green Deal and ESG taxonomy. The Digital Product Passport is a digital interface that provides comprehensive information about a product, including its ingredients, manufacturing process, certificates, and end-of-life options. It aims to enable a circular economy by making it easier for consumers to make informed choices and for businesses to provide transparency and traceability. The implementation of the Digital Product Passport has the potential to revolutionize the way products are produced, consumed, and disposed of, leading to more sustainable practices and better environmental outcomes. The Digital Product Passport (DPP) is a powerful tool that combines sustainability and compliance with customer experience and centricity. It provides a way to make products more transparent, accessible, and trustworthy. The DPP enables consumers to easily access vital information about a product, such as its environmental impact, ethical considerations, and authenticity. It also empowers consumers to make informed decisions and encourages businesses to adopt more sustainable practices. The DPP has the potential to revolutionize various industries, including agriculture, by promoting regenerative practices and reducing waste. Starting early with the implementation of the DPP is crucial to stay ahead of the game and reap the benefits of improved customer experience and compliance. The DPP also opens up opportunities for marketing, services, and innovation, creating a more sustainable and future-fit world. The Digital Product Passport is a digital interface that provides comprehensive information about a product, enabling consumers to make informed choices and businesses to provide transparency and traceability. The implementation of the Digital Product Passport has the potential to revolutionize the way products are produced, consumed, and disposed of, leading to more sustainable practices and better environmental outcomes. May 27, 2024, Exciting news from the EU! The Council of the European Union has given its final approval to the Ecodesign for Sustainable Products Regulation (#ESPR), marking a major milestone in our journey towards sustainability. This groundbreaking regulation mandates that all products placed on the European market will require a #Digital #Product #Passport. This passport will provide comprehensive information on the environmental sustainability of products, enhancing transparency and enabling informed consumer choices. This initiative will significantly reduce the environmental impact of products, improve circularity, and drive innovation across various industries. It’s a transformative step that aligns with our commitment to a greener and more sustainable future. And the Digital Product Passport will bring about positive realities for Europe! It won't be straightforward – a lot of work awaits us. However, many smart minds are working on the DPP concept in an interdisciplinary manner, connecting with each other, thinking from the perspective of businesses and end customers – for a circular economy that can and will work. #DigitalProductPassport #EuropeanUnion #GreenDeal #ESGtaxonomy #circulareconomy #transparency #traceability #stainability #futurefit #DPP #espr #circulareconomy #customerexperience #marketingfuture #sustainability #digitalproductpassport #nexteraofmedia #eutaxonomy #Sustainability #Ecodesign #GreenTransition #Innovation

Michael Shaun Conaway is my guest on Episode 161 of Inside Ideas with Marc Buckley.  Michael Shaun is endlessly curious about how life works, why we do things the way we do, and how we might do them differently. This led him to become a phenomenological philosopher – someone who examines life from the way life shows up moment to moment. His current work in Being and Time is rooted in this tradition.   Michael Shaun’s purpose in life is to unleash greatness to bring about a thriving future. His mission is to empower and accelerate the redesign of our failing systems to create an anti-fragile, anti-rival world, one that works for all.   To this end he helped to create the field of Generative Futurism, the practice of generating or envisioning desirable futures at near and long timeframes, back-casting steps it would take to realize that future and then acting to take those steps moving forward in time. Simply put, this is the capacity to see and realize futures.   Michael Shaun is a frequent speaker on long-term strategy, the future, and being and time. His keynotes have the uncanny power to shift culture by building a new narrative for the audience. His talks are journeys designed to leave the audience seeing from a new reality.   Michael Shaun Conaway is the founder of five highly successful ventures. He is an award-winning filmmaker, editing publisher of PROOF magazine, founder of NOW, an entrepreneur education platform, CEO of Storyworks, a social impact creative agency, and the non-profit Generative Futures initiative.   Michael Shaun is the director of the award-winning documentary feature, WeRiseUP, a culture-shifting film featuring key global leaders. WeRiseUP asks a fundamental question: What is success for humanity?   Michael Shaun started his career in the mid-nineties as a writer/director for video games. By 2000 his creative agency, Storyworks became the go to agency for high tech companies looking to create visions of the future.
Corinne Sawers and Eric Lonergan are my guests on Episode 160 of Inside Ideas with Marc Buckley.  Corinne started her career at the UN, working on climate change. She has been advising global businesses and governments on climate and sustainability for more than a decade. She is co-founder of the not-for-profit More United.  Eric is a policy economist and author with more than twenty years of experience in financial markets. He is co-author with Mark Blyth of the international bestseller Angrynomics (Agenda, 2020). He has written extensively on innovations in monetary policy and frequently contributes to the Financial Times.  Supercharge Me is a fast-paced, clearly-written, manual on how to accelerate the green transition. Written by Eric Lonergan, a leading policy economist and author of the bestseller, Angrynomics (FT critics book of the year 2020), and Corinne Sawers, a sustainability and climate expert, the book introduces the concept of "supercharging", a new framework for accelerating our response to climate change. Through a series of high-impact policy hacks, Supercharge Me will embolden activists, reinvigorate the disheartened, and reframe the climate crisis as an opportunity.  The book is structured as a dialogue, where Lonergan’s expertise in markets and economics is combined with Sawers’ extensive knowledge of the climate challenge and business transformation. The authors’ appreciation of the realities of human psychology, politics, and how companies work, makes this one of the most accessible and practical guides to the climate crisis.
My guest today on this Special Edition of Inside Ideas is Dr Roland Strauss - one of the most influential figures within the European innovation landscape.  For well over a decade, in his role as Founder of the nonprofit, Knowledge4Innovation, he has been the driving force behind the European Innovation Summit held annually in the European Parliament, which brings European commissioners and MEPs face-to-face with the needs of the company’s, organisations, ideas and startups driving innovation across the continent.   Now, as Europe begins laying out its plans for delivering on its vision to become the first climate-neutral continent by 2050, it is the role of innovation that will again take centre stage.   And as the key innovation platform at the heart of the European institutions, with the support of dozens of MEPs, it is the K4I Forum in the European Parliament - sitting at the crossroads between politics; businesses; startups; academia and wider society, which is perfectly placed to help define the leading role it will play in achieving this net-zero future.  Right now, Dr Strauss and K4I are doing that most notably by leading the charge for the development of a European Innovation Area - a single ecosystem for innovation across the continent that can harness the collective power of progress to achieve a just transition towards a sustainable Europe that truly works for all.   The journey towards achieving this ecosystem is well underway, with the inaugural European Innovation Area Summit – led by K4I – set to take place in the European Parliament next month.  So, this is the perfect time to welcome Dr Strauss onto Inside Ideas to discover more about the European Innovation Area and its first ever summit.
