The future is Green!
Whether or not the SA economy is being driven into the Green Sector as a result of mainstream acceptance of the theory of man-made greenhouse gases causing environmental destruction, or finally by the understanding of the fact that there are too many of us consuming too many resources too fast, the reality is that the Green Economy is now in play!
If you are committed to personal growth in 2012, and believe that you can make a positive difference to society, business and to our most precious yet abused resource, EARTH, then you will need a selection of advance thinking, backed by tools and solutions to help you get there.
By simply understanding the balanced systems approach - knowing that Earth, Climate and Mother Nature all work in an equilibrium, and that a small part can affect the whole, is an important starting point. No longer can we afford to live with the short term (ignorance) mentality of "I am okay, so everything is okay", instead we need to understand, accept and practice the 3BL approach (Triple Bottom Line) especially when it comes to people.
Better still, when you understand and apply William McDonough © 2002 approach of: "How do we love all the children, of all species, for all time" you will begin to see just how vital the systems approach is. This is not just about humans on the planet but instead about co-existence of all creatures on the planet. Many of the world's oceans are already over-exploited some more than 80%, so how will this affect the whole food chain? How will this effect industry, jobs, security and eventually us? We can no longer ignore these issues and for this reason more and more green ambassadors trained in green ideologies are needed as urgent catalysts of change.
In the Systems approach, the demise of one species will impact the existence of another.
Do you see yourself as wanting to help people and businesses who are struggling to find a sustainable balance, improved ethics, compassion, meaning or well-being in their lives? Do you want to make a good living and also do work that you are passionate about, and a career that makes a positive contribution to the world at large?
The world is changing at an alarming rate. In 2011 the world changed in so many ways from the floors of the stock exchanges, banking, economic, social, political and not to mention the technological changes. What opportunities and threats have these changes brought about? How do these translate into Green?
Many of us, organisations and institutions are stuck in the old ways of thinking & doing business and therefore by you training as a Certified Green Consultant / Coach / Mentor / Change Agent, you will become a vital conduit who can bring about real change, sustainable change, to any organisation.
So if you are seeking an extremely rewarding, yet challenging career in sustainability, you have passion for the environment and firmly believe that you are a good steward of the earth and aren't afraid to demonstrate it, then 2012 is the time to make the change.
