On Earth & Climate Change

Do you know Zara Forman?

In the about page of her website, it is written:

“Zaria Forman documents climate change in pastel. She travels to remote regions of the world to collect images and inspiration for her work. She has flown with NASA on several Operation IceBridge missions over Antarctica, Greenland, and Arctic Canada. (…) Forman currently works and resides in Brooklyn, NY, and is represented by Winston Wächter Fine Art in New York, NY and Seattle, WA.”

Highly recommended. Discover below in this 7 minutes talk about how @ZariaForman celebrates the beauty and fragility of Earth in her large-scale drawings of glaciers and icebergs. Truly beautiful and inspirational!

On Connectedness & Humanity

Disconnect to connect the dots (people, ideas, actions, projects, places) what I noticed and wrote about, too.

I have started reading the book of Gerd Leonhard: ‘Technology vs Humanity‘. You may also enjoy his 6 minutes film ‘The Future is already here‘. As he puts on the description of this Youtube video:

“I am delighted to present this new 6-minute film on the future of technology and humanity. We shot this footage in some pretty amazing locations in Barcelona. In the film, I explain the key themes from my new book, Technology vs Humanity (see links below)

 We are facing exponential change, and it’s only just the beginning. This could be heaven – or it could be hell; all depends on how we collaborate, going forward. The future is already here – but most of us haven’t noticed. If you can explain your job it will probably be automated – and yet the vast majority of new jobs haven ‘t even been invented yet. Human-only jobs are our future, and we now must seek to become ‘exponentially human’. Embrace technology but don’t become it – because technology is not what we seek but how we seek (…)”

“Sure, you’ve got a vision. Sure, you’ve got a plan.

But what you also have, is a bunch of employees looking over a cliff.

And as long as that cliff is still there to your employees, your goals will remain unreached.
Nobody jumps into the abyss willingly.

Your first job as leader is to build the bridge across it.” — Gapinvoid, Culture Design Group
