Der ignorierte Kontinent AFRIKA

thrive(at)iclei.orgDie EU will die neue libysche Regierung stützen und sucht die Zusammenarbeit, um die befürchtete nächste Flüchtlingswelle über das Mittelmeer zu stoppen. Regierungsvertreter sind bemüht, nordafrikanische Staaten zu gewinnen, um die Flüchtlingsströme zurückzuhalten. Die EU will die Mission "Sophia" ausweiten und die Gewässer zwischen Nordafrika und Europa sichern, u.a. durch die Zerstörung von Schiffen der Schlepperbanden. Doch dieser Aktionismus kommt zu spät, greift zu kurz und zögert die Spannungen nur hinaus, während die Ursachen zwar vielfältig bekannt sind, aber immer noch nicht ausreichend in Angriff genommen werden.

Und wer die Meinung kontrolliert, kontrolliert die Welt. Den Spielraum, den eine Krise mit seinem Chaos öffnet, ist immer auch der Rahmen für einen Krieg um die Bedeutungshoheit der Ereignisse, den die gewinnen, die entweder die Stärksten sind (auf kurze Sicht) oder die Weitsichtigsten (auf lange Sicht).

What behaviors are people adopting globally that have a positive impact on environmental sustainability? What has changed—and what hasn’t—in the past few years? Consumers adopting some sustainable behaviors, but change not keeping pace with concern,

A Shift in the PR World

Foto by Brenda GottsabendIn the era of “media multi-taskers,” people have grown used to being bombarded with a wide range of ever-present content and messages. Unless the material is directly relevant to them, it will generally be ignored. In one of his blogs, Richard Edelman stated that we are no longer selling to an audience. Instead, we are trying to build relationships across a community of stakeholders, where a consumer is now also an employee, a shareholder, a member of an NGO, a community activist and a passionate user of products willing to advise on the design of said products.

techruptiveIt’s been almost half a century since Philip Kotler published his Principles of Marketing, which has defined the practice ever since. Kotler took insights from other fields, such as economics, social science and analytics and applied them to the marketing. Although it seems basic now, it was groundbreaking then.

A New Story of Stuff

Story of StuffFive years ago, a 20-minute YouTube video called “The Story of Stuff” went viral. The creators can now count 40 million total views of their series, which includes videos on the stories of cosmetics and bottled water. A new video has just come out: “The Story of Solutions: Why making real change starts with changing the game.” Like past stories, this video sets the narrator, Annie Leonard, against black-and-white stencil animations.

Earth Security Index

Earth Security 2014From the sidelines of the geopolitical agenda, issues like water scarcity, tropical deforestation, soil degradation and climate change are creeping up to impact the capacity of countries to generate electricity, grow sufficient food, protect their infrastructure, and rely on one another’s supplies across open borders. In the absence of trust, and a clear focus on the risks and opportunities to build resilience, the competition for scarcer resources will push governments, businesses and investors further into a scramble to gain access. This will continue to undermine the vision of multilateralism, cooperation and sustainability that is needed to deal with planetary limits. Born out of resource crises, however, is the hope that stronger and bolder political and economic commitments to sustainability will help drive the decisions that today seem utopian.
