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 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.

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.
