Following his dream to do more, Marques created the World Education Foundation 2009.
“BUILDING BRIDGES FOR PEACE THROUGH EDUCATION”
The WE Foundation bridges the gap between academic and expert knowledge and their implementation in local communities around the world. WE are creating the classrooms, learners and livelihoods of tomorrow to help societies sow the ideas and grow the solutions to their most pressing issues. Using toolkits like the WE:SOLVE Labs, our associates craft workable solutions and build global collaborations, ultimately generating new market opportunities. By collecting large amounts of anonymized data from each project, WE are also building a larger picture which helps us make better connections and more tailored programs for each new community we interact with. Essentially, WE help share the best proven practices across all kinds of borders and boundaries to promote and secure peace through education.
WE are working to help global communities reshape themselves through the use of technology and education. In the field, WE focus on opening up opportunities for research and learning, which in turn cultivates understanding and leads to better informed solutions. We strongly believe that through the wide spread application of knowledge, collaboration and empathy, humanity as a whole is capable of moving to the next level of perception and action, thereby achieving peace in this generation. This is of course a mighty task and the work involved will be monumental, but WE propose that with todays level of interconnectedness and the feedback loop between humans and technology, it is well within our collective reach.

Chris Assaad is a creative fire starter. His newest Album, set to release in the late summer/ fall of 2020 is called: LION
I had the unique chance of meeting Chris behind the scenes and recording a candid, raw and deep conversation about Chris's work, music and art.

There are many words that fit to describe Chris Assaad: Singer-Songwriter. Inspirational Wordsmith & Writer. Healing & Transformation Guide. Lion Hearted Leader. Creative Fire Starter. These are some of them.
Chris Assaad is a multi-passionate Canadian artist and heart-leader who left a promising career in law several years ago to follow his own heART and his passion for music.

Nearly two years and two miraculous surgeries later, Chris was given the gift of perfectly restored hearing and a second chance, cementing his path of a life dedicated to his artistry and to inspiring others to follow their innermost calling.
Since then, Chris has been actively using his voice to grow an international grassroots community, sharing his eclectic blend of soulful roots music, heart-opening songs and stories with audiences in Canada, Australia, the US and Europe, appearing at club and festival dates from Wanderlust in Whistler to The Sound Dome in Sydney to Midem in Cannes.
After seeing a YouTube cover of one of his unreleased songs, Michael Franti invited Chris to join him at the final show of his 2015 “One Heart One Soul” tour for a special rendition of the song. Chris has also shared the stage with artists such as Trevor Hall, Ayla Nereo, and The Wood Brothers.

Brandon is a facilitator of transformation and miracles! Among his groundbreaking offers and courses are The Presence Project and the newly completed coaching program: The 13 , which is guiding leaders and seekers into deeper level of self-realization. In this episode Brandon shares a bit of his background and how he literally followed his inner guidance from "chaos" to bliss, supporting people and teams on the way.
A path to a new earth with Brandon Bozarth:
(from Brandon's website)
"We all know the first step in solving any challenge, global or local, is to BE THE CHANGE we would like to see. But to be the change, first we need to know HOW to change (the science of transformation and behavior), and WHAT to be (who we are, what we are passionate about, and what gifts do we have to give). Although these questions may seem big or daunting, the process of discovering the answer to them lies in one word, Integration. Integration is the process of transforming, unconditioning, and reconditioning the negative beliefs and behavior patterns that make up who we think we are (ego) and keep us from our true nature (higher self), thus creating fear, separation, war, greed, disease while simultaneously concealing the answers to the questions above most of us are seeking. In fact most people spend 70% of their life trying to get out of stress... All because of an unintegrated ego which controls 100% of our behavior and results in all areas of our lives.
Integrating the negative unconscious beliefs automatically reveals the answers to the questions above, creating love, fulfillment, healing, happiness, abundance, clarity, leadership, and most importantly allows you to live your divine design (the expression/s of your passion and excitement). Your divine design means you are 100% supported in all ways, financially, emotionally, relationally, and spiritually by your passion. No longer can you live a life that is not representative of who you are and what you are passionate about. For those of you that are living your passion in all ways you possibly can, but you aren't experiencing being fully supported by it, this is for you too...
If every person on the planet gave their unique gifts to the world and allowed their passion and purpose to support them in all ways the Earth will become a harmonious example of the unconditional love, peace and unity THAT IS humanities destiny. We would finally see how perfectly we all fit together as pieces of one cosmic puzzle."
That's the work Brandon dos and where You freedom begins... when the war within you ends with Brandon Bozarth

His interest is in Human Integrity, which he is exploring in different projects and contexts, such as making natural toys for children, economic education for youth, collaboration trainings in organizations and integrity consulting with individuals.
Marcus approach is rooted in the Intuitive Pedagogy of Pär Ahlbom, and greatly influenced by Orland Bishop, whom he was mentored by over a decade.

- human rights and equality in political life,

Todays guest is Rieki Cordon facilitator at SEEDS - Regenerate Money decentralizing Abundance.
SEEDS is a solution to the greatest crises of our time.
*** if you want a personal invite to join SEEDS, with complimentary SEEDS to get started please E-Mail me at email@example.com
It's a digital currency and financial system like we've never had access to before. One that serves, rewards and finances the people and organizations committed to creating a healthier and more equitable planet.
Crafted from systems that reflect the latest in financial, social and political innovation, SEEDS is the web that connects and nurtures a globally regenerative culture.
A financial system by the people for the people ... and the planet!
Seeds are the unit of currency for the SEEDS platform, designed for your everyday use; whilst also being a revolutionary new way to distribute value to initiatives that deliver favourable outcomes for environmental & societal regeneration. So, Seeds is the currency with a conscience!
You can easily convert traditional money into Seeds, use them for day-to-day transactions, online or peer-to-peer and convert them back to your local currency any time.
Seeds are programmed to be intrinsically stable. More stable in fact than government-issued currencies which consistently lose value and most, highly volatile cryptocurrencies.
How? Well, as the SEEDS economy grows, rather than rising demand causing the price of each Seed to increase, transparent protocols maintain a stable value by growing new Seeds - just like central banks create more money today. New Seeds (this extra value from growth) then flow to all people, communities and organisations of the SEEDS ecosystem, based on a variety of contributions (not just wealth!).
Not only that, but these protocols, distributions and initiatives are governed and evolved directly by the citizens of SEEDS.

Todays interview guest is Jeremy Lent the author of the The Patterning Instinct.
A Cultural History of Humanity's Search for Meaning

Jeremy Lent is an author whose writings investigate the patterns of thought that have led our civilization to its current crisis of sustainability. He is founder of the nonprofit Liology Institute, dedicated to fostering an integrated worldview, both scientifically rigorous and intrinsically meaningful, that could enable humanity to thrive sustainably on the earth.

What does the world require most these days ? A conversation with Sandy Wiggins. Read more below about Sandy's practice, training and overall creations.
About Sandy Wiggins:
Statement of Practice:
Each of us has the capacity to be fully awake and fully alive. In fact, this is what we are called to be from the moment of our first breath. It is our destiny. It is also what is most needed in the world. The stories that dominate our lives, our unconscious beliefs, childhood relationships with care givers, cultural conditioning, and physical and emotional trauma are some of the barriers that keep us from this destiny. Breath is a portal through which we can heal and transcend all of that, enabling us to access our innate capacity to be fully awake and fully alive. As a practitioner, I work with individuals and groups using breath to activate this capacity that we all possess.
I completed the entire Inspiration curriculum and spent many years under the guidance of Inspiration’s founder and principal teacher, Jessica Dibb, and other Inspiration practitioners training as a breathworker. I am certified as an Integrative Breathwork Practitioner by Inspiration and the Global Professional Breathwork Alliance. I continue to be an active member of the Inspiration Community as a learner, guide and part of an ongoing Bodhisattva circle.
In addition to Integrative Breathwork, I have studied Therapeutic Breathwork, Holotropic Breathwork, and Coherent Breathing. I began my adult life in a monastery, followed by a classical education in Physics and Philosophy. I have been a lifelong student of Eastern and Western philosophies and wisdom traditions and have studied and practiced numerous meditation and transformational techniques over 40 years, including Contemplative Prayer, Vipassana, Transcendental Mediation, TM advanced techniques and the TM-Sidhi program, Zen and Kriya yoga. I have studied Archetypal Patterns at the Assisi Institute, studied the Enneagram extensively including coursework on the Enneagram for Healing Practitioners, and completed the Landmark Curriculum for Living. I have also engaged in a variety of coursework on systems theory with Fritjof Capra and Margaret Wheatley.
I spent many years as a business executive before realizing the damage that was being wrought on life by our current economy, at which point I redirected my life energy toward changing that. I went on to chair the U.S. Green Building Council and helped to develop the LEED rating system and move it out into the world. I also chaired the Business Alliance for Local Living Economies (BALLE), an organization that is working to create economies that work for all, and have worked extensively as a Sr. Advisor to RSF Social Finance to redirect capital flows in ways that support life. As a student of process and systems, I became an NCI certified Charrette Manager and Facilitator and have worked across the U.S. to help communities in their efforts to become socially just and environmentally sustainable. In addition to my breathwork practice, I also facilitate workshops, communities of practice and retreats focussed on personal transformation, equitable economies, environmental sustainability and culture change.

ShoreLocks mandate is to protect and restore critically eroding coastlines through sustainable, proactive coastal maintenance around the globe.
When sand looses its ability to bind with other sand particles, the result is increased erosion. Thus, hydrophobic sand that cannot bind with water is more easily washed away. ShoreLock promotes that relationship by the retention of interstitial water, facilitating the accretion of sand along the beach.
By promoting hydrogen bonding, a liquid bridge is formed between grains of sand. This liquid bridge increases surface tension and allows natural accretion to occur through tidal wave action. ShoreLock also promotes dewatering below the surface level of the beach to help reduce escarpment.

Josh Whiton is an impact entrepreneur blending technology and business with active care for the planet. The companies, projects, and planetary interventions he serves aim to harmonize society with nature, catalyze a regenerative economy, and elevate human consciousness.
Regenerate The Planet
We need to start regenerating the planet, rather than simply consuming it as a raw material. Our society produces an enormous amount of food waste. Currently, nearly all of it goes to landfills where it rots, releasing CO2 and methane — an even worse greenhouse gas. When instead we turn that food waste into soil, the carbon and nutrients go into the ground, sequestering carbon, while producing the topsoil our food system depends on.
More about Josh: The Projects he created include the transit-tech company TransLoc, for which he was named a Champion of Change by the White House. TransLoc was #5 on Fast Company's list of the most innovative companies in transportation and was recently acquired by the Ford Motor Company. Josh also co-founded one of the first urban farms in the southeastern United States, helping thousands of people each year to participate in a more beautiful food system. His latest intervention is MakeSoil.org
In this episode Julian sits down once again with Simon Fyall, and shares about his experience in Davos2020. Julian shares about his favorite experiences during this powerful week, during which: Marc Benioff , CEO of Salesforce declared that “capitalism as we’ve known it is dead,” and called for higher taxes on the wealthy. The range was broad: At an event titled “2030,” Lucian Tarnowski and his cohort predicted a new golden age of human thriving following various radical changes, such as the overcoming of material wants and broader use of psychedelics for emotional health. And in an official nod to the revolutionary spirit, the World Economic Forum itself, which runs the show, released a new “Davos Manifesto,” for the “fourth industrial revolution.”
Among Julians favorite experiences were:
- The GreenDebate at Hotel Seehof
- Salesforce Lunch and Panel with Jane Goodall, Will I am and others
- Remember 2030 party at #Blockbase
Here is an article in the New York Times about this Remeber2030 Event during which Julian offered a Breathwork and Meditation: https://www.nytimes.com/2020/01/23/opinion/sunday/davos-2020-capitalism-climate.html
The Green Debate, organised by In-Events, did bring together forward-thinking executives and CEOs who share a common interest in sustainable business and development. Panel participants included Erika Karp, Founder and CEO of Cornerstone Capital Group; Ibrahim Al Husseini, CEO of Full Cycle; Thimo V. Schmitt, Director of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability at Aurora Europe;
For context, here is an overview of what the official WEF agenda was for 2020:
The Programme for the Annual Meeting did prioritize six key areas:
Ecology: How to mobilize business to respond to the risks of climate change and ensure that measures to protect biodiversity reach forest floors and ocean beds.
Economy: How to remove the long-term debt burden and keep the economy working at a pace that allows higher inclusion.
Technology: How to create a global consensus on deployment of Fourth Industrial Revolution technologies and avoid a ‘technology war’.
Society: How to reskill and upskill a billion people in the next decade.
Geopolitics: How the ‘spirit of Davos’ can create bridges to resolve conflicts in global hotspots. Informal meetings to set kickstart conciliation.
Industry: How to help business create the models necessary to drive enterprise in the Fourth Industrial Revolution. How to navigate an enterprise in a world exposed to political tensions and driven by exponential technological change as well as increasing expectations from all stakeholders.
