If Mother Earth were a patient in the hands of a good doctor what would the diagnosis, treatment and prognosis look like? Can the planet be cured of its ills at all and what would it take to achieve this?

 

It is very clear that our planet is indeed at risk of sudden cardiac arrest. The symptoms are all there. Mother Earth suffers from dangerously elevated blood pressure, blockages of key arteries, toxic poisoning, smoked out lungs, a damaged liver and multiple injuries untreatable by existing antibiotics.

Brazil wants Rio+20 meet to impose global sustainable development model | Corporate "Social" Responsibility – #CSR #Sustainability #SocioEconomic #Community #Brands #Environment | Scoop.it

Rio De Janeiro (AFP) Brazil wants the upcoming Rio summit  to impose the concept  of a sustainable development model for the world adopting clear (sustainable development) goals for the next 20 years which can balance economic growth, poverty eradication and protection of the environment.

The Rio+20 summit scheduled for June 20-22, the fourth major summit on sustainable development since 1972, is to take up a broad range of issues on the health of the world, including growth, food security, access to water, lifestyles, energy, biodiversity and climate.

Accounting for Nature's Benefits: The Dollar Value of Ecosystem Services

Accounting for Nature's Benefits: The Dollar Value of Ecosystem Services | Corporate "Social" Responsibility – #CSR #Sustainability #SocioEconomic #Community #Brands #Environment | Scoop.it

Healthy ecosystems provide us with fertile soil, clean water, timber, and food. They reduce the spread of diseases. They protect against flooding. Worldwide, they regulate atmospheric concentrations of oxygen and carbon dioxide. They moderate climate. Without these and other “ecosystem services,” we’d all perish.

Innovative Innovation - Prosperity Without Growth

Innovative Innovation - Prosperity Without Growth | Corporate "Social" Responsibility – #CSR #Sustainability #SocioEconomic #Community #Brands #Environment | Scoop.it

In Europe, we too need much research on ecological intensification within an ecological economy, rather than so-called sustainable intensification in a neo-liberal, market-based economy.

One challenge is to rewrite the rules of technological and scientific innovation around a new economics that is based on ecological principles rather than neoclassical or neo-liberal ones. We also need innovation around business models that are not based on continuous growth and expansion of markets and products.

What is “Wilderness”? Why Protect it? A Mission for the Future…

What is “Wilderness”? Why Protect it? A Mission for the Future… | Corporate "Social" Responsibility – #CSR #Sustainability #SocioEconomic #Community #Brands #Environment | Scoop.it
“Wilderness”… What does this mean to the modern human being? Why should we value it in our day and age? Why is it there? Is option value enough for people, who will never see it, to protect it?

The preservation of wilderness areas that are undisturbed and truly “wild” is imperative, not only for future generations, but also for the landscapes themselves. The wild plant and animal communities dependent on these ecosystems did not arise through “sustainable management” or conservation interventions, but rather through millions of years of natural selection and evolution in the absence of modern man. In 25o years we have ravaged and destroyed that which all life depends upon...for profit.

In this article they include the many things that are continuously brought to the populations attention about out earth and how we treat it. But in the passage it includes many unbelievable facts such as roughly 89 million gallons of food is put into waste each year. Sometimes this is the approach you need to catch peoples attention on the effects that we are causing our planet.

Stop Inbreeding Innovation

Stop Inbreeding Innovation | Corporate "Social" Responsibility – #CSR #Sustainability #SocioEconomic #Community #Brands #Environment | Scoop.it
It's a topic that perhaps would only appear on the pages of The Economist: an effort to establish North America's first elephant sperm bank.

Inbreeding isn't just a problem for captive elephants. Leaders seeking to drive innovation ought to ask themselves the degree to which their ideas are suffering because of innovation inbreeding. In many companies, it runs rampant, leading to staid ideas and disappointing performance.

Can environment become a tool for achieving Social Equity?

Can environment become a tool for achieving Social Equity? | Corporate "Social" Responsibility – #CSR #Sustainability #SocioEconomic #Community #Brands #Environment | Scoop.it

Every human activity in the world has an environmental footprint.

Can we build reward systems that have the ability to create new markets (including bottom of the pyramid), are backed by policies and use environment as a tool? Can we use the new frontiers of technology to monitor, verify and reward positive impacts? The future of the planet depends on human activities and how we choose to use scarce resources. Every activity on the globe has an environmental footprint, and those that care for “Spaceship Earth” need to be rewarded.

Descendants - A Short Fascinating Animated Video on Plant Symbotic Relationships

The protagonists are a pair of flowers (the older more experienced voiced by Whoopi Goldberg in full form and the younger by Christy Scott Cashman). They grow on the edge of a clearing next to one another. One wonders from the start whether there is some symbiotic connection between them.

Feeling overwhelmed by the relentless demands in their lives, and the sense that there's no way out?

 

"More, bigger, faster" has been the rallying cry of capitalism for more than two centuries, since the advent of the industrial revolution. Now we're all wired up, but we're melting down. We're dancing as fast as we can. BUT Stroll? Mosey? Linger? That's what slackers do, right?
