Visioning Workshop with Morguard Investments

Last week I had the great pleasure to join about 50 people with Morguard Investments in a multi-day strategic planning workshop in the Greater Toronto Area.  They are a real estate management and development company who is looking at sustainability as a way to create competitive advantage and differentiate.  We were invited in by Neil Pegram, a graduate from the Master’s in Strategic Leadership towards Sustainability program in Sweden, who co-designed and co-facilitated the session with me.  

Creating the Change We Need

I’ve been in beautiful Vancouver, BC for the last few days, filled with awe and gratitude for its sense of place, the story that it tells about me.  I’m attending the Gaining Ground conference which happens in the Pacific Northwest annually and am having a funny conference experience.  Conferences for me are usually about hearing success stories, sharing barriers and networking.  This conference has been different in that I have felt moved to action in my own life rather than gaining tools to help others embrace sustainability. 

Blog Action Day: a reminder to act now

Today is Blog Action Day for climate change and what better reminder to all of us to take action than this morning’s article in the Globe and Mail telling us that rapidly melting Arctic ice will have “devastating effects on the planet.”  Researchers say that in 20 years, summer ice will have all but disappeared. What this means for the planet is that the melting permafrost on the continental shelf will release methane gas, further accelerating global warming, and the newly open water will have an impact on global weather patterns and ocean habitat.
