Online Summit 2019

Shifting Perspectives – Redefining Sustainability

Welcome to day #10!

The Bigger Picture: Redefining Sustainability

Over the last nine days, we have raised issues ranging from food waste to mental health, from technology to leadership. We learned that sustainability is much more than just fighting climate change. Because people are waking up all around the world, asking similar questions, like ‘What do we want?’ or ‘What is the world we want to create?’ – our global challenges now can be turned into massive opportunities. If we get it right. It is now the time to redefine what sustainability really means.

Derreck Kayongo and Tom Szaky start out with giving our sustainability challenges a new perspective and bigger meaning. Darius Reznek and Charles Eisenstein follow with our need to reconnect what has been separated. Afdehl Aziz urges us to go beyond ‘corporate social responsibility’ as it is such a low bar. And Trisha Stezzi tells us to redefine not only sustainability but also success at the same time.

To change one thing, we must change everything. We must change our values, the way we interact, collaborate and do business, the way we learn from each other. It is not sustainable to think, live and work in silos and repeatedly reinvent the wheel. And most important: Change needs to build bottom up. Not top down. As governments and large corporations are merely popularity contests. Doing what we collectively ask them to do.
