Humane innovation for better futures, with Karel Golta
Karel J. Golta is my guest on Episode 95 of Inside Ideas with Marc Buckley. In the age of artificial intelligence, digitization and machine learning being human is often neglected. For Karel therefore it is crucial that innovations are not only human- centered but rather make mankind - in unity with the entire ecosystem – the decisive factor in development. That this is something only design can do - that is not to be argued with the entrepreneur and convinced business-romantic. Unlike many other topics, the founder and managing director of three companies – INDEED Innovation, TOI - Tools of Innovators, and Simplexion – loves to discuss, to provoke and to put the finger into wounds which no one previously suspected that they exist. As a speaker at international events, as initiator of successful event formats, as a board member and adviser of different cluster organizations, as lecturer at the Steinbeis University in Berlin as well as columnist and author, but above all in his attitude as an entrepreneur, Karel provokes and inspires executives as well as young talents to new thoughts. It is important to him that design is perceived as creation of value and not as creation of objects. And even more so he wants to convey to his listeners and readers the idea that design plays an important role wherever you want to change something.

Songwriter & Advocate for Sustainable Food Systems Reform with Eva Keretic
Songwriter charts with global food systems reform Songwriter & Advocate for Sustainable Food Systems Reform Eva Keretic is my guest on Episode 94 of Inside Ideas with Marc Buckley. If there’s one thing Eva Keretic has mastered in the half-century of her life, it’s to embrace an experience and create a story. Whether it be in song, or speech, or trying to save the planet. There she was at her first meeting with politicians and managing directors, hoping to finance an innovative vertical farm facility run on 100% renewable energy, and they started off with the normal introduction round. Their lists were long and impressive. She was panicking how would she even begin explaining her right and imminent necessity to be there amongst them. She decided the best plan of action was to go with her true story. She did write, produce and perform 6 albums of original music. She believes in and follows her desires to express her life stories with music and share them with the world. While doing it all, she has been adding something insightful to the lives of others through her experiences, she sure has and continues to do so. Whether it was for the many or a chosen few, she turned her life’s lessons and heartaches into songs. All the work involved in being an artist-led her down other roads, which allowed her to write advertising songs for companies, to create her “team-building with songwriting” agency, and to write songs to help teach kids to learn English. As is the natural course of a “do-gooder songwriter”, charitable work was the next step, she found herself tackling bigger global issues, like world peace and climate change. She was fortunate enough to have been accepted to train as a Climate Leader with Al Gore (former Vice President and Oscar winner for “The Inconvenient Truth) and his Climate Reality Project, and what she remembers most from her climate training with Mr. Gore, was that he said, „take what you’ve learned from my experiences and my presentation and weave it into your own narrative“. It all came down to the fact that all her experiences led her to become an advocate for spreading climate awareness. So in the end, that’s what landed her a spot at the table in that room with VIP politicians and the like. When she did confess her truths, it turned out the others were more impressed with her coming from “off the beaten path” than anything else (and they became fans, who doesn’t love music).

Facing the Future ECO-Social Strategy without Neoliberalism Growth Economics, with Stuart Scott
Stuart Scott is my guest on Episode 60 of Inside Ideas with Marc Buckley. Stuart refers to himself as an eco-social strategist. After working a conventional career with assignments for IBM, Merrill Lynch, and several universities, in 2008 he gave up working for money and since has devoted himself through a series of volunteer staffed initiatives, to awakening humanity to the ecological and climate catastrophes that our growth economic system is creating. His latest effort is an initiative called Facing Future TV. Principally known for his visibility at UN-sponsored climate negotiations, or COPS and extensive video interviews, his thesis is that modern economies, their unrelenting emphasis on growth, privately owned central banks exponentially expanding the money supply, are akin to cancer with humanity as its host, that will inevitably destroy the host. In 2018, Stuart brought Greta Thunberg and her father, Svante Thunberg, to COP-24 in Poland, from which Greta’s unwaveringly clear message to world leaders was amplified and her position cemented as the preeminent spokesperson for youth and future generations, thus increasing her profile, worldwide, leading to his nomination of Greta for the Nobel Peace Prize. Stuart succeeded in convincing famed climate scientist James Hansen, former Director of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Science, to attend the climate talks that he had previously shunned as an ineffective sham, first to COP-21 in Paris (2015), again to COP-23 in Bonn, Germany (2017), and also to COP-25 in Madrid, Spain (2019). #future #economics #climate

REFORMATEN Active food systems transformation, with Olga Grönvall Lund
Olga Grönvall Lund is my guest on Episode 54 of Inside Ideas with Marc Buckley. Olga is a Swedish entrepreneur who has worked with food-related projects her whole professional career. She has mainly been active in Stockholm and Berlin but has also hosted events, catered, and done productions in other parts of the world such as Hong Kong, London, Bologna, Copenhagen, and Paris to name a few. In 2019 Olga founded Reformaten – a people’s movement for a new food system where everyone’s winner - humans, animals and nature. The slogan, “Det ska vara lätt att äta rätt”, explains the purpose well; “it must be easy to eat right”. Throughout her career she had noticed the problems with the current food system through a business perspective, but It wasn't until last year, when her dad got seriously sick with colon cancer and was hospitalized, that she realized how deeply rooted and systemized this issue really is. The food served to her dad in the hospital was a menu filled with industrial processed food or red meat. The type of food that is destroying our planet and is proven cancerogenic by WHO – and her own tax money was paying for it. The idea was to translate boring and complicated research reports so that “normal” people outside the food system would understand and gather the voice of the people in a petition to show our leaders that a new system is demanded. Olga's strongest assets are her energy, creativity, fearlessness, positive vibe, great taste and broad net of contacts.

The End of Evolution the nature of life and Biodiversity, with Prof. Dr. Matthias Glaubrecht
Prof. Dr. Matthias Glaubrecht is Marc's guest on Episode 50 of Inside Ideas with Marc Buckley.   The End of Evolution the nature of life and Biodiversity One of the most famous German evolutionary biologists Matthias sees the greatest loss of species since the dinosaurs became extinct as a worldwide biological tragedy. The greatest threat to the existence of all living beings is definitely humans, whose own future is at stake. The book published by C. Bertelsmann on "The End of Evolution. Man and the Destruction of Species" is not only nominated for the NDR Culture Non-Fiction Prize 2020 as "the best science book of the year" in the field of medicine/biology by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Science. Federal Ministry of Education, Science, and Research Climate change is finally on everyone's lips. However alarming proportions it has assumed it is only a sideline in the face of the apocalyptic horsemen who are currently roaming the earth in an act of devastation: population explosion, scarcity of resources, environmental destruction, and the extinction of species. Whether the end of evolution, which threatens to become a realistic scenario by the middle of the 21st century at the latest, can still be stopped, will be decided by our actions in the decades immediately ahead.

In her book Diversifying Power: Why We Need Antiracist, Feminist Leadership on Climate and Energy published by Island Press in 2020, she argues that effectively addressing climate change requires diversifying leadership, redistributing wealth and power, and moving beyond mainstream male-dominated technocratic solutions to climate change. Throughout her career she has explored institutional and cultural innovation in the energy sector, including gender diversity, energy democracy, and technological optimism as well as the “usability” of climate science in climate resilience efforts. Professor Stephens was a 2015-2016 Leopold Leadership fellow, and her book “Smart Grid (R)Evolution: Electric Power Struggles” (Cambridge University Press, 2015) explores social and cultural debates about energy system change (co-authored with Wilson & Peterson).

Science should put its business hat on
Andy Dobson was born in London and moved to live in Scotland before starting school. He spent the next fifteen years becoming a keen birdwatcher and bibliophile.  He commuted daily from a small village on the edge of the Highlands to Glasgow High School.  His family moved to Essex in 1970 and he completed school at King Edwards VI Grammar School, Chelmsford where he spent a lot of time measuring a museum collection of bird eggs and trying to quantify changes in their shape and size. He went to Imperial College, London University as a Botanist and emerged as a Zoologist in 1976, he then went to Oxford to for his PhD on “The Mortality Rates of British Birds”.  During his time as a graduate student, he worked as a sous-Chef at the Cherwell Boathouse Restaurant, this generated a lifetime interest in food and its production. He was then a post-doc back at Imperial with Roy Anderson working on the population dynamics of host-parasite relationships, work which led him to Princeton to work on combinations of all of the above with Bob May. He was hired at the University of Rochester in 1987 and after three years returned to Princeton in 1990, he’s lived there as a member of the Ecology and Evolution faculty ever since. Andy’s research focuses on the role that infectious diseases play in the dynamics of wild animal and plant populations and how this modifies the structure of food webs.  Thinking about how to develop mathematical models for these problems takes him to Serengeti, Yellowstone, Panama and along the coast of California.  He also works on assorted problems in conservation biology and models for animal social systems and how these interact with the dynamics of different pathogens.  This work is based on the wolf population in Yellowstone, but gains insights from the lion studies in Serengeti and a long-term fascination with primate social systems. Andy has published and edited several books: “Conservation and Biodiversity”, “Population Dynamics of Diseases in Natural Populations”, and “Unsolved Problems in Ecology.”   He has been an external Faculty member at the Santa Fe Institute since 2011. Increasingly his time there will be spent writing a series of books that provide introductions to the scientific systems he has studied: “Serengeti Lives”, “Parasite Lives”, “Yellowstone Lives”. He is part of the SFI “Arrow of Time” working group that is examining “Timescales and Immunity”.

His international honors also include the Tyler Prize for Environmental Achievement (2010), and the Dr. A.H. Heineken Prize for Environmental Sciences from the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (2006). Pimm’s commitment to the interface between science and policy has led to his regular testimony to both House and Senate Committees of the U.S. Congress. He frequently visits Washington D.C. to engage policy makers on environmental issues. He is also asked to advise international governments on biodiversity issues and the management of national parks. Pimm has served on National Geographic’s Committee for Research and Exploration and currently works with their Big Cats Initiative, an effort to reduce human-wildlife conflict in Africa, Asia and elsewhere. He is a lecturer on National Geographic expeditions. In addition to his conservation efforts in Africa, Pimm has worked in the wet forests of Colombia, Ecuador and Brazil for decades, and is a long-term collaborator on the Forest Fragmentation Project in the Brazilian Amazon. In the last decade, he has been active in training Chinese conservation professionals and spends a month each year in China. Pimm directs Saving Nature, a 501c3 non-profit that uses donations for carbon emissions offsets to fund conservation groups in countries to restore their degraded lands in areas of exceptional tropical biodiversity. Their Science Board is composed of some of the world’s most eminent and accomplished conservation biologists. Pimm is the author of over 300 scientific papers and five books, including the highly acclaimed assessment of the human impact to the planet: The World According to Pimm: a Scientist Audits the Earth.

Be More Pirate with Alex Barker
Alex Barker leads Be More Pirate, a global social movement and (anti) consultancy that began life as a book by social entrepreneur Sam Conniff. Since joining Sam she has fostered a network of thousands of individuals and organisations who have turned 'pirate' and are actively challenging the status quo in their work and lives. Within the movement she splits her time between writing, research, running workshops and growing the network. But it was a long road to piracy. After studying middle east politics, Alex spent time travelling and working in the region, beginning her career in international development, detouring to social care, before becoming communications manager at think tank the RSA (Royal Society of Arts). Having always been fascinated by why systems fail and what it takes to make them succeed, she found in the story of pirates, the answers to some long standing questions. Since then she has written a follow up book, How to: Be More Pirate, documenting the insights from their movement - a frontline perspective on the courage and conviction required to rewrite the rules of the 21st century. Alongside building the movement, Alex works with businesses, universities, NGOs and the public sector supporting them to overhaul their culture, take more risks and be more ambitious with how they can support wider system change.

Dave Borlace - Part 2
Dave Borlace is my guest on this episode of Inside Ideas. Our conversation is split into two parts. Born just 4 months before man first landed on the moon back in 1969, Dave Borlace has been conscious of environmental issues since studying for a Technology Degree with the Open University in the late 1990s. In early 2017 Dave read a seminal book called ‘A Farewell to Ice’, written by the arctic research scientist Professor Peter Wadhams. That book was an epiphany that set Dave off on a quest to create climate communication videos that aim to decode the sometimes overwhelmingly complicated and confusing scientific information around climate change, with the objective of explaining the concepts in the sort of plain English that everyday folks can understand. His YouTube channel, Just Have a Think, now has over 100,000 subscribers. Through his weekly videos, Dave seeks to understand the issues that face our civilisation in the 21st Century and focusses on the potential solutions that will save as many lives as possible and hopefully bring about a greater level of equality in the world.
