B Team Live: 

Business and the Global Goals

On the morning before the Sustainable Development Goals were launched, some of the world’s most innovative and ambitious leaders gathered together in New York to discuss how business can help the world to meet the 

Global Goals.

 

The impressive line up of speakers and panellists spent the morning talking about how 'the businesses leading the transition will be the first to benefit from adopting these goals', and reinforced the critical role that we all have to play in accelerating the transition.

Professor Johan Rockstrom on

Thriving within Planetary boundaries

Speaking at the B Team Live event in September 2015, Professor Rockstrom's presentation was a timely reminder of the critical factors to guiding the necessary human transition to sustainable development.

 

He reviewed how our planet has enabled us to continue to live and flourish worldwide over thousands of years, and explained the dangers of exhausting resources and under-rating the warning signs of tipping points ahead.

 

Professor Rockstrom also reinforced the importance of centring people and planet at the heart of all things, and expressed his view that business should lead the economic revolution.

Former UN Secretary General on Empowering the next generation

"You are never too young to lead. You are never too young to do what it is that you actually believe in. We keep saying that the future belongs to the young, but it only belongs to you if you take it. From what I have seen, young people will change the world."

Open Dialogue is the way forward to creating Holistic Collaboratories

We believe that creating a platform for open dialogue between the UK’s Key Societal Stakeholders will enable us to create a fundamental network of holistic collaborators.

 

The network will actively interpret the contributing factors to long-term sustainability, happiness and prosperity in society on the whole; with particular focus on coaching the next generation and advancing societal priorities to enabling their smooth transitions to social and professional autonomy.

Shaun Achor's Ted Talk on The Happiness Average

Shaun's presentation on positive psychology is brilliantly informative and effortlessly entertaining. Having studied positive psychology and the link between happiness and success, Shaun believes that if we, as a society, continue to study what is merely average we will remain merely average.

 

Referring to how society teachers us to 'eliminate the outliers' in order to determine the line of best fit, Shaun goes on to suggest that instead of 'deleting' the positive outliers we should study them. He states, 'It is not about moving people up to the average, it is about moving the average up in our companies and schools worldwide".
