We Are The World. We Are The Children
It’s as true today as it was 30 years ago. And it will be much truer in the future.
Our Planet Earth
The idea was the world is an emerging system that no one ever had any control over. Just adapt and try to play your little roles as good as you can or cower down and do what you are told. If there ever where architects that had a master plan when designing societies and the known world we will perhaps never know. What we do know, is that thanks to a brand new communications toy, we can now talk to each other all over the world instantaneously.
The question is, what do we have to talk about?
In my own personal experience I have seen a real shift this summer in conversation. For me it feels like we are on the verge on a tipping point. From my little node in the global network conversations, talking points are now far more concerning the future of life on Planet Earth.
Or maybe it’s just that hooked up with more interesting people and that my confirmation bias has tilted me to think so.
Still there are a lot of things going viral that weren’t there before. It started this summer with a fantastic pod with Johan Rockström in Swedish, that where so good that when asked to do it in English he did that too. And people has been sharing all kinds of links with Hans Rosling now in September.
It all boils down to World Climate Summit in Paris December 6th. Our Last chance to make right by all future generations to inherit Planet Earth. Join The Road To Paris 2015.
Also 21 of September is International Day of Peace. Which is close to our hearts here in Sweden as we have big UN Peace conference here in my hometown Varberg in October: Varberg Calling for Peace.
Scott Dinsmore & Live Your Legend!
This latest week has been even more intense for me. Last weekend Scott Dinsmore passed away in accident while on a hike on Kilimanjaro. He is the founder of the large Live Your Legend network all over the globe. And the community his risen up to share their condolences with his surviving wife and family. Like this one from Yazminh. They are all in the Facebook group [Tribute to Scott Dinsmore, Founder of Live Your Legend]. And Chris Anderson decided to put Scotts now famous TEDx talk with over 2 and a half million views up on the main TED.com site.
I myself a host for Live Your Legend Local in Gothenburg and Varberg has been following Scott for 2 years now. I have eagerly awaited his Live Your Legend RAW update each week that sadly will stop coming now…
I’m so sad that you have left us Scott. You showed me a path that I didn’t think was possible.
We will continue to carry the torch for you Scott!
Scott truly embodied what is was to live a better life on Planet Earth. Let’s all honor his memory by doing the work we can’t NOT do.
Environment. Is. Everything. The fastest way to do the things you don’t think can be done is to hang around people already doing them. Choose your friends wisely and brainwash the impossible. – Scott Dinsmore
I have a longer Tribute to Scott and the Revolution coming up soon…

Un-Fuck The World [Set 17 Global Goals]
James Hanusa posted on Facebook that it’s time to Un-Fuck The World! And I signed up on that challenge! We can take the power back from all the greedy systems that using massive amounts of Earth’s resources, to no apparent use at all to further us as a species. We can become architects for all systems on Planet Earth.
I also stated a new MOOC called U.Lab: Transforming Business, Society, and Self. It’s for us Change Makers who wants to transform the world and ourself using a growth mindset. Many of us feel called now like never before. And we are spreading it on Social Media. We are more 30,000 talking this MOOC and using the hashtag #ULab.
U.Lab: Transforming Business, Society, and Self
Spread the Global Goals. Yesterday Stephen Hawking shared a really heart tearing video message about what we must do to save our home this year together by setting up 17 Global Goals that our leaders should follow.
We need Everyone to tell everyone!
The more people we talk to about it the more important it becomes. And it truly feels the way now. Like we are on mission now. To do one thing that matters. If we don’t pull it together in 2015 we might as well through in the towel and jump ship. Jump the Spaceship Earth. Expect that we can’t just jump of Earth anytime soon and go live on Mars.
So lets just stick to Plan A. The only plan we have.
Do give Scott, Stephen and Rockström a listen and tell me what Plan A is for you?
Stephen Hawking – The Global Goals
Hello Everyone. Stephen Hawking here.
2015 is the year world leaders signs up to the global goals.
They are an ambitious to-do list to eradicate poverty, save the environment and make the world a fairer place for everyone.
Where every woman and every man has the chance to live a healthy secure life full of opportunity and love.
The more people who know about them, the more likely our leaders are to stick to them.
So this is our attempt to let every person in the world to know what is at stake.
People can not hide from their rights if they do not know what the are.
I would be hugely grateful if you would share this video with your friends, family and fans and ask them to search for global goals online.
To save the world we need everyone to tell everyone.
I’m very aware of the preciousness of time. Help us seize the moment.
The time to act is now
— Stephen Hawking
