Lately I have been more active on the Ego to Eco front through writing on Linkedin, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and what not, as well as speeching outside the social media realm and in real life.
On social media, I focus on What If questions. For instance:
What if: We create that better World for ´Nothing´ More than.. shifting our Ego´s to Eco´s? How would the world look like then?
Or: What If: We seperate the State from Business, as the seperation of the State from the Church before?
Such open ended, yet a bit suggestive questions, are great for opening up ones creative mind for possible solutions and implementations.
Furthermore, I have been speaking with citizens from Haarlem and the region on the street and in private, as well as during meetings such as the Province of North Holland on September 05, 2022. All on Ego to Eco of course. During that day, while my colleagues where fiercely speaking about Tata Steel, I on the other hand, had quite an academic statement on the state of the world regarding climate change, biodiversity loss and the future of our, and the planet´s, existence. At the end, I gave solutions to be implemented by the Province and its politicians, in order to steer the region into a sustainable one. Of course, I also mentioned Tata Steel, but my focus was more on the academic background of it all. The pollution, the material wealth seeking Egonomies, etc. And then of course, an ECOnomy instead.
I will give this or similar speeches in the future at other political, business, and conference gatherings. So if you are interested, just send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will answer.
