Please join us for this week's edition of ESGX Live: Sand Talk - The Power Of Indigenous Thinking.
!!!Please note the special time!!!
Whether you work in business, finance, government, academia or philanthropy, there are always seemingly intractable problems which conventional thinking cannot solve. In recent years, we've seen the rise of sustainability and systems thinking, as we seek to take a more holistic approach to the challenges that surround us.
In this episode, we're joined by indigenous author and academic Tyson Yunkaporta for a free-flowing yarn on the issues we're struggling with in business and government today, and his new book Sand Talk: How Indigenous Thinking Can Save The World. Pratibha Vuppuluri, head of Global Portfolio and Investments at Unreasonable Group will be joining the conversation to share her experience in supporting global entrepreneurs.
As a start, we plan to explore:
*What is indigenous thinking, as opposed to indigenous practice?
*Where and how can we apply it in our work and our lives?
*Can indigenous thinking really save the world?
This event falls in the middle of Earth Week - a reminder that climate change is one of the big issues facing governments, businesses, investors and society in general. We note that the fundamental risk of climate change was first identified some 200 years ago - and 50 years ago a team from MIT identified that many of the related issues would start to become significant challenges around 2020. So one of the questions we'll be exploring is what we can learn from indigenous thinking in exploring how we can seek to influence change.
As always, this episode will be live and interactive, with a particular focus on practical actions that businesses, governments and individuals can take - and the commercial and other benefits of doing so.
