STORY

Sustainability

“Development that meets the needs of the present
without compromising the ability of future generations
to meet their own needs”

 Brundtland Report, UN Commission of Environment and Development (1987)

Story

“A description, either true or imagined, of a connected
series of events”

Cambridge Dictionary

There is a urgent need to look at the world differently. This can be done by using human’s superpower of adaptability while imagining and designing the future”

Carlo Giardinetti, starter of #GoodAfterCovid19 initiative together with Sara Roversi.

TAKE A PART IN GOOD AFTER COVID-19 Global movement.

Building on #GoodAfterCovid19 global initiative. We are proud to offer you a possibility to join the movement in Finland!

Our goal is to get a broader understanding of how the UN SDG’s are applied in different businesses.

 

In the first phase, we are looking for business stories, through which we can develop a deeper understanding of various ways of applying the SDG’s depending on the challenges they face. Based on the results we will develop different viewpoints on how to shape and adapt the SDG’s to reach the goals. Our aim is to bring the real-life stories to a large collaborative information platform to further improve all areas of the SDG’s. We also bring stories that support us in understanding how we imagine the new world, so that designing our future would become a collaborative task.

The SDG’s have no simple or univocal solution. But that shouldn’t stop us from developing and trying different solutions that consider specific needs while contributing to the larger set of goals.

In the second phase we want to visualize and vivify the solutions and challenges of the SDG’s in different areas of business. Business are at different stages when it comes to the SDG’s – some business are working towards the SDG’s without realizing it, while some have postponed the work to the future. The visualization supports developing a understanding of opportunities and threats. We aim at inspiring as many as possible to look at e.g. businesses opportunities created by the changing need of the world.

Our role is not to judge or moralize decisions made as right or wrong – our role is to support organizations in making more conscious decisions and support them in communicating their decisions more effectively as well as developing concrete actions for implementation. This requires planning, implementation and reporting where we can help.

It is not important where you are – it is important where you are heading. Let us assist you on creating your sustainable path. Let’s design the future together.

“The planet does not need more successful people. The planet desperately needs more peacemakers, healers, restorers, storytellers and lovers of all kind”   – Dalai Lama

WHAT MOTIVATES US: STARFISH STORY

“After a storm, there were millions of starfish on the shores. There were massive discussions on the topic, as the starfish on the shore were dying and it was unclear how this would affect the oceans in the area.

On one beach, there were many watching in horror the thousands of starfish on the shores. They  were far from the ocean. A girl went to the shore, picked up a starfish, and threw it in the ocean. Many went silent, until one voice said “You can’t save them all, there are millions of them. They won’t make it.”

The girl picked up another starfish, threw it in the ocean and said “ that one made it”. She picked up a third one, threw it in the ocean and said “that one made it as well”.
