If you can't travel right now... try this instead

Announcing my new virtual conference series, starting March 12 2020

The covid19 virus is quickly becoming a major interruptor as far as live events, conferences and generally larger gatherings of people is concerned. I remain hopeful that it can be contained in the next few weeks but I also think we really need to start looking at alternatives for traveling to places and meeting face-to-face (even though I very much enjoy doing that, the environmental costs are staggering, as well). This will take some serious adjusting but I think it can be quite fruitful, as well. Hence I am announcing my first online conference, today, using the amazing ZOOM platform.

TOPIC: SUSTAINABILITY AND THE FUTURE OF CAPITALISM

I firmly believe that Sustainable will be the new Profitable, and that businesses and organisations that get on board early will have much better chances of striving in this new era.  I will present and discuss the following topics (see more content on this, here):

1. Carbon Taxes:
We must embrace the reality that wide-ranging and disruptive carbon taxes are pretty much inevitable. After the initial shock waves – and if done right – carbon taxes might not only inject Trillions of $/€ into climate change adaptation and mitigation measures, but may also fund up to 100 Million new jobs.

2. The Quadruple Bottom Line: The much debated shift to shareholder- (not just shareholder-) value is likely to reboot stock-markets around the world in the next decade, as we transition from the outmoded, single bottom-line of PROFIT to what I call the quadruple bottom-line: People, Planet, Purpose and Prosperity (in the essence, creating a new logic of ‘sustainable capitalism’ *Al Gore et al – 8years ago).

3. Responsible Investing: 2020 marks the beginning of a New Renaissance as responsible investing – and rapid divestment from fossil fuels, in particular – is quickly becoming a #1 topic with every fund and every family office, around the globe.

4. The humanly sustainable use of technology: Too much of a good thing can be a very bad thing: technology should be magic, not manic or even toxic. But who is ‘Mission Control’ for humanity – who is in charge of Digital Ethics? Do we need more regulation?
