I guess what we all have to do, is what is "unpopular", or inconvenient to short term capitalistic goals. At least that's what this 15 year old girl speaking to the UN plenary is telling world leaders.  We, and especially our political leaders, need to become "unafraid" of unpopularity in the present for bold, courageous actions, so that our kids, like Greta, and my three year old son, can enjoy the future.   https://youtu.be/HzeekxtyFOY

Most of the world is trying its best to be proactive in mitigating climate change, but a few "troll" nations are really hamstringing the process; see Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, the US insisting on the new IPCC report being "noted" instead of "welcomed", throwing a huge spanner in the works of the COP24 proceedings, and the rather ludicrous sideshow put on by the US and attended by their lacky Australia on the virtues of coal(!?). If most of the world that is on board cut the few troll nations...

I recently read an article about how VR technology is enabling more and more work to be done in virtual space. If I could see a lifelike projection of my colleagues, and interact them in a virtual workspace, with unlimited "desktop" and gesture based control, I wouldn't need to travel anywhere, except for the odd occasion where I wanted the personal, face to face flavour of interaction....

In the borough of Barking and Dagenham in England, a participatory revolution is taking place, called "Every one Every Day". In the past year more than 2,000 people have participated in 70 community led projects to improve the local area through collaboration by ordinary people. The outputs are diverse: urban farming, community cooking, and more, and the outcomes will be increased social capital and trust, greater well being, and greatly reduced community carbon footprint.  How was this...

It's a remarkable innovation that https://impossiblefoods.com/ has created a vegetarian meat that convincingly tastes like regular meat by isolating the heme molecule. Could we provide public funding support to scale up this innovation, and defeat red meat which has an enormous carbon footprint in the marketplace by providing a widespread, delicious, low carbon alternative? Red meat eaters would take some convincing, so could we support promotion with lots of free samples in supermarkets...

With Te Kawa o te Uruwera http://www.ngaituhoe.iwi.nz/te-kawa-o-te-urewera Ngai Tuhoe have ushered in a new era, positioning themselves truly as Kaitiaki of Te Uruwera. We can learn from this precedent and recognise parts of Auckland as legal persons, under the protection of their customary Kaitiaki. And we can join in partnership with them Tāmati Kruger's vision is for all of us to be Tangata Whenua, and Kaitiaki of the land. But while the land belongs to the crown and to individuals,...

The Social Labs method is a proven method to tackle complex challenges by bringing together government, industry, and civil society on a shared collaborative platform for systems change and innovation.  https://ssir.org/articles/entry/the_social_labs_revolution_a_new_approach_to_solving_our_most_complex_chall There are many examples of Social Labs in practice, and their impact, but a relevant one is the e-Lab https://www.rmi.org/our-work/electricity/elab-electricity-innovation-lab/...

IPCC's new report highlights a new level of urgency for climate action; limiting to 1.5c warming would avert some severe consequences of climate change that would occur at 2c warming but "Limiting global warming to 1.5ºC would require rapid, far reaching and unprecedented changes in all aspects of society" in the words of the report. How can Auckland show trailblazing climate leadership, becoming for example the first carbon negative city(surely the world needs this to counterbalance the...

The Energysprong model for net zero energy houses which power themselves seems really strong and tested in a number of countries. The company seems to have a great end to end solution providing policy advice and practical services to provide net zero energy retrofit
