After more than three decades, the public is finally beginning to grasp what a serious threat global warming poses. Whats missing from the climate conversation now is a plausible narrative about how we might parry this threat. Drawing on ideas from his recently published book, Under the Influence: Putting Peer Pressure to Work, Robert Frank explains why our ability to tap the prodigious power of behavioral contagion may make the path forward less daunting than many think. Recorded on 1/27/2020. [3/2020] [Show ID: 35561]
Robert H. Frank is the Henrietta Johnson Louis Professor of Management and Professor of Economics at Cornell's Johnson Graduate School of Management. For more than a decade, his "Economic View" column appeared monthly in The New York Times.

Watch their full talk here: http://bit.ly/2lTHbh5 Extraordinary award-winning poets, performance activists and cultural architects Alixa Garcia and Naima Penniman of Climbing PoeTree explore the network of mutuality that binds our existence through the ricochet of oppression and the reciprocity of liberation. Their art is a tool for catalyzing action, cross-pollinating solutions, getting at the root of our most pressing social and ecological issues, and reminding us that we all belong to each other. This speech was given at the 2016 National Bioneers Conference. Since 1990, Bioneers has acted as a fertile hub of social and scientific innovators with practical and visionary solutions for the world's most pressing environmental and social challenges.

The mission of Sustainable Human is to assist in creating and promoting a new economic system based on the collective voluntary gifts of everyday people. The goal is to transition from our current, scarcity-based economic system to a new system capable of creating abundance for all. Bypassing the monetary system, we will voluntarily collaborate on projects aimed at creating goods and services that are given freely to the world, helping to create a bottom-up, participatory, global gift economy.
After 7+ years of holding space for a conversation about the deep underlying roots of our many sustainability-related crises, the time has come to be more proactive towards a solution.
We recognize at the very root of many of our systemic issues is an economic system that measures progress and success in only one metric - growth or profit. Economic growth means consuming more resources each year than were consumed in the prior year, which means that more of Nature must be turned into product for human consumption. The scale has reached ecocidal proportions.
At the same time, fewer people are able to meet their needs from the present economic system as wealth inequality only continues to grow. Complicating matters is the fact that technology is rapidly replacing human workers in a variety of ways in both the virtual and creative markets. The idea of income being attached to work is coming undone.
We need a new economy and it is going to be up to each of us to co-create one.
Sustainable Human is creating a new, voluntary, global gift economy called the Sustainable Human Gift Economy Network (powered by Hylo - an emerging, open-source social network designed to help communities to collaborate). Its purpose is to transcend the economics of scarcity and transition humanity into the economy capable of delivering sustainable abundance for all.
The idea is simple.
We all have a gift to give. When we work together in sharing our gifts, we are able to accomplish amazing achievements. However, most ideas we create are limited by the need to make a profit. No longer.
Now we can voluntarily work together using our unique gifts and skills to create anything we want and give it freely to the world. As more people decide to join the gift economy, the size and scope of the gifts will grow to a point where people will be able to meet some of their needs through this economy, reducing the need for us to participate in the life-destroying, soul-crushing, industrial, growth economy.

What if we were tasked with making a difference, so that our time on this planet leaves it better than we found it? What if we were tasked with making a difference, so that our time on this planet leaves it better than we found it? This thought launched me into a new career as a Legacy Coach working with people who want to make a difference. I researched leaders who champion initiatives that have made a positive impact on the world, hoping to find ways to actively develop a new generation of responsible, purposeful leaders.
I call it the “sustainability mindset in action.” Isabel Rimanoczy’s life purpose is to develop change accelerators. Aware of the complex challenges we and our planet are facing, she works alongside those who can make a large-scale impact. Rimanoczy, Ed.D., developed the Sustainability Mindset, a concept she researched by studying business leaders who champion corporate initiatives with a positive impact on the environment and the community.
She is also the author of several books, including Big Bang Being: Developing the Sustainability Mindset, and has published over 140 articles and book chapters. Rimanoczy blogs for the Huffington Post and has just published her newest book, coedited with Keru Kassal available from Amazon. Click on book icon to order.
'Active Hope," is the title of a new book by Joanna Macy and Chris Johnstone. In it, they eschew feel good denial, cynical disengagement and baseless optimism. In this talk, Macy summarized their message. As Macy and Johnstone wisely acknowledge, there are no comforting certainties involved in opting to work for change with ‘active hope:’ “…there are no guarantees that we’ll be able to turn things far or fast enough to safeguard our civilization, or indeed, to ensure the continued existence of conscious life on Earth. We will probably not know in our lifetimes whether we are serving as deathbed attendants to a dying world or as midwives to the next stage of human evolution.” But, act we must on the issues we care about. Taking their lead from Joanna Macy and Chris Johnstone's new book Active Hope, Cynthia Papermaster and Harvey Wasserman organized this evening of multi-issue presentations, Januare 10, 2016 at the Berkeley Fellowship of Unitarian Universalists.
