Hi there. Can I tell you what I dream of doing?
I want to develop a policy on the integration of social and environmental sustainability in economic activities of organizations to make them equitable, profitable and environmentally sound.
It's all part of making a better world.
This is to enable us have a prosperous and equitable world while living within our planetary boundaries and without jeopardizing the ability of future generations to do same.
This is really going to help people.
The impact of my vision will be mainly felt by the poor in the least developed areas of developing countries because they are the worst hit by the effects of poverty, climate change and social inequality.
It's not just about having an idea though - here are the things I know I can achieve:
Sustainable organisations - economically, socially and environmentally
Sustainability embedded in primary and secondary school curricula
Individuals taking steps towards sustainable living - sustainable consumption
I'm going to make this happen, and this is how I know it'll make a difference.
I will be glad to see a nation where every organisation and individual thinks about the three-fold effect of their actions and decisions before they act. Where the government has policies in place to embed sustainability in school curriculum and organisational practices as well as taking adequate steps to ensure implementation, alongside sanctions for erring or non-compliant schools and organisations.
Thanks for listening to me. Will you help me build a better world?
