Keynote: Proposing a new sustainable development goal #18 Space environment.
by: Dr. Andreas Losch 
More and more 'trash' is lingering in space. What needs to be done is raising awareness that 'littering' in space is probably not helpful for the environment as a whole. 

​​​​​​​This event was chosen as the most innovative event at Global Alumni day.

Organised by: Hult/Ashridge Chapter Leader GE & Idea by: van der Glas & van der Glas.

An Ecological & Community Approach by Jane Riddiford.

Jane Riddiford DProf, co-founded Global Generation in 2004. She has more than 30 years experience of 
leading environmental, arts and educational projects within urban communities in New Zealand and the UK. 
Her interest in running creative projects with young people that bring different parts of the community together
through storytelling, connecting to nature and the wider cosmos has been a consistent thread throughout her
working life. Recently she has been Learning Practice Director for a Trandisciplinary MSc with a community based regeneration focus with Middlesex University. Jane's insightful book offers practical experience on the 'how to' LEARNING TO LEAD TOGETHER including opportunities for your own inquiry. You can order it here. A recent podcast of Jane you will find here. 

"A real-life conversation that spanned 3 continents. Whow! 
It was refreshing to listen to Jane and being able to ask her a lot of questions - and all live. 
Answers were shared in regard to: 
'how to learning to lead together'
'how ecology & cosmology still influence us'
'how we create ethos'
'how we can move from being less individualistic to be more of a community'
'how we still can learn from nature - through all that leadership noise, tech, steel & cracks of concrete'. 
In addition to that, Jane shared helpful opportunities for our own individual inquiry. Further opportunities are mentioned in the appendix 1 of her book.  
🙏🏻 A big thank you, Jane. This was a refreshing keynote among all the other (leadership) noise out there. Thank you & keep up the fantastic work!
Dear reader, in case you missed Jane live, you can watch the keynote conserved here.
...and last but not least: in case you may have questions, please feel free to PM Manuela"
