Who can see your viewing activity?
Greetings from India ! _Sonal Kharbanda : Rectitude Adr
Good morning! I'm keeping my video off because I'm in the car, but great to be here with everyone
As am I because I am eating my porridge!
And I am on a train
I have a breakfast related reason too 🙂 nice to be here with you all
My beloved wife, Dr. Rosemary Howell, tested positive to Covid a few days ago and regrets that she is not attending this meeting. She's on the antivirals and seems to be recovering well. Fingers crossed!
Hope she recovers soon Alan!
Welcome one and all!
Dear Alan, we are sorry to hear and wish Rosemary a swift recovery!!
Yes indeed! We wish Rosemary a swift recovery!
🤞for her Alan. I hope that she will be good soon .
Thanks to you all, I'll certainly pass on your warm messages. :)
Thank you Prof Bosselmann - it is very interesting to hear about New Zealand's new Bill. I hope you recover from Covid very soon.
Thanks everyone I must leave. Have a nice day..

Thank you Ivana
Apologies, but I need to move over to another meeting at :00 sharp. This was my first event since signing the Pledge and was enlightening, and a chance to meet some like-minded practioners.🌱
I. Anna's aim of having the Earth present in her mediations is excellent and I will bring the earth into all my meetings
Very good point Jeremy! How do we pursued participants to use online?
Emma here (on John's zoom account). Thank you so much for joining us today. I shall be sharing the recording on our website shortly.
thank you Stiofan and thanks to the MII for pioneering a very creative response on the pledge
2. I think mediation and mediators can be positioned to facilitate the conversations that are required to support the necessary transitions involved in Climate Action and Biodiversity enhancement
I endorse much of what has been said today, but can I just ask that we stop using the term “dispute resolution” to describe mediation or what we do. It’s a mistake and is the terminology of the legal system. The legal system may need disputes for the courts to sort out, but as mediators we first and foremost should be encouraging people to seek our help at the first sign of a problem arising. A problem unsolved becomes a dispute. So I hope others will also use the term problem solving’ to describe what we do rather than dispute resolution.
Charlie, can you share the survey?
Thanks to everybody. This was my first event since signing the pledge and I found it very beneficial and very encouraging.
If the parties are willing to meet for individual meetings online, perhaps they will be more willing to meet online jointly later on.
Thank you everyone
Thank you everyone. This has been a very helpful and thought provoking session.
Gosh - will try to extract it from a longer report. I’ll see what I can do
Two points for winning over the arguments: 1. Providing the evidence/measurement of carbon reduction and 2. how this ties in with ESG (environmental social governance) of large companies.
Excellent session; thank you for igniting the pledge and this imperative initiative
Thanks Charlie, be interesting...
Thank you for this very interesting discussion.

Charlie, some satisfaction statistics could indeed be helpful. The issue is not only getting to the lay clients, but dealing with the (mis)perception that face-to-face is always better.
It all depends of the clients. Some even do not have email and I believe we can adapt keeping our sustainable aim in concern as much as possible within our mediation principle respecting the process that fit better the clients. Thank you very much for your initiative and all the best for the Earth.
Hi Jeremy, I ask parties what they are anxious about in working on line
Emma here: You can see some Ideas for Action on Womacc.org as we consider Living with the Pledge...The ideas were generated by signatories. Go well!
Thank you - fascinating session. On the question of how to persuade people about online, Nicola mentioned giving people the experience of online through early meetings and pre-mediation sessions which I have found successful too.
Great conversations! I agree that part of the green pledge should be about actively promoting mediation to support sustainable environmental action and requisite policies
Also, if you are an IMI Certified mediator and have signed the Pledge but haven't indicated so in your profile, we urge you to do so, in order to be searchable by users who have signed the Corporate Green Pledge: https://imimediation.org/find-a-mediator/?filter_Green_pledge_checkbox_49c98=Yes
Within the Green Pledge - bringing 'climate mediation' into the concept - that mediators across the globe, offer their skills to the earth by creating a space to work on climate related mediation cases (community, resource, energy, climate transition negotiation/dialoge) etc...
Many thanks everyone!
Thank you. Very useful insights on the green pledge.
Thank you for the event, lots of work ahead for all of us
