Sustainability and Earth’s Call Last Updated on 2018-04-12 20:21:23 “No straw, please,” I say to the waiter, committed to contributing one less bit of plastic to the burgeoning landfill or the Pacific garbage gyre. Can I trust the menu that indicates this seafood is “sustainably fished” or should I pull out my latest app to double check? For that matter, I wonder, can any fishing really be sustainable given the state of our oceans? A restaurant meal can quickly become a nexus of commitment and concern. (Are these tomatoes local? Free of pesticides? Were the workers paid a living wage? Oh, wait; they’re out of season anyway.) We’ve changed our light bulbs, switched to sustainable power, and drive a hybrid. And yet these day-to-day choices we make in the hopes of living sustainably seem not only confusing but woefully insufficient to the challenges of our time.   Sustainability is often defined as balancing...

Future's Workshop With Joe Tankersley Last Updated on 2018-03-29 15:34:39 Futures Workshop This interactive workshop will introduce participants to the tools of strategic foresight and share methods for using futures thinking as a way to create more robust strategies for sustainable tourism. Strategic foresight traces its origins to the work of systems thinking pioneers like the Rand Corporation in the days following the second world war. The same techniques were further developed by NASA’s Futures Team in the early 70s as a way to help the organization reimagine its future after the end of the Apollo program. Since then futures teams have been created for global businesses, national governments, and nonprofits. As we enter an era of ever-increasing uncertainty and accelerating change, futures teams and foresight thinking become even more important. The unique approach helps to broaden participants’ horizons, overcome hidden biases, and... More »

Neverland, Nonsense, the Afterlife, and Wisdom for Living Last Updated on 2018-01-06 23:06:56 The story of Peter Pan has long been described as a metaphor for childhood and immortality.  The new ground breaking work Nonsense, by Dr. Raymond Moody,  now shows that the story may also be a metaphor for understanding how nonsense is a key for creating new language and thinking re: the afterlife.  Perhaps more important, understanding the afterlife may offer key wisdom for living today. The J.M. Barrie, author of Peter Pan, shared that Neverlands are found in the minds of children, and that though they always seemed to be more or less an island, and they have a similar resemblance, they are not exactly the same from one child to the next. For example John Darling “had a lagoon with flamingos flying over it” while his little brother Michael “had a flamingo with lagoons flying over it.”  Like Dr. Moody describes in his research on Near...
