Making A Difference

Speakers cover a wide range of issues, but they all focus on strengthening or restoring the ability to take responsibility for our future and the motivation to try to make a difference. There are many ways and places to make a difference – consumer and lifestyle choices, the approach adopted to a job or profession, how an individual saves and invests, how a business is managed by an owner or senior executive, parenting choices, political involvement, and more. Almost any role we play may be consciously directed to promote greater sustainability. This topic is about counteracting feelings of powerlessness. Feeling powerless is of course self-fulfilling, and widespread feelings of powerlessness are perhaps the single most significant barrier to creating a sustainable future.
