The Ethics of Disagreement
Thu 13th May 2021, 6:30 – 7:30 pm AEST

Details

Step into any relationship therapist’s office and they’ll tell you that what predicts a breakup isn’t whether a couple fight – it’s how they fight. Couples that stay together fight fair.

If we put modern society into the therapist’s office, they’d probably be recommending us a good divorce lawyer. It feels like we’ve lost a sense of principled disagreement – the idea that it’s OK if reasonable people think differently about something that matters.

In part, this is because we’ve changed the boundaries on what is OK to disagree about. Today, disagreement and debate about sensitive issues is seen by some as harmful or violent.

We can all be guilty of treating disagreement as something that must have a winner and a loser. Whilst in other times disagreement has been used as a tool for everyone to learn; today, we disagree without any readiness to be persuaded.

When should we respectfully disagree? Should we always be open to having our mind changed? Can we remain friends with someone who we disagree with about things that really matter?

Join us as we explore the art of disagreement and learn to fight fair.

This event is part of ‘The Ethics of’ trilogy which includes ‘The Ethics of Trust’ and ‘The Ethics of Disagreement’. ‘The Ethics Of…’ is an intimate event series that offers an opportunity to freely examine the experiences, hopes and challenges that make us truly human. In this trilogy, the meaning, mess and morality of trust, forgiveness and disagreement are put under the microscope through playful thought experiments. Join The Ethics Centre for a set of important conversations about the different ways we connect to each other.

The Ethics of Trust
Thu 22nd April 2021, 6:30 – 7:30 pm AEST

Details

In many ways, saying we trust someone is shorthand for saying that we think they’re a good person. And yet, we so often misplace our trust – in people, institutions and belief systems.

If you’ve been burnt too many times, you might have considered giving up on trust altogether. But the cynical path of not trusting anyone is a lonely one – not to mention that it’s basically impossible. Trust is the oxygen of social connection.

How does trust work? Why is it so hard to work out who is deserving of trust? And what should we think about the fact that politicians and businesses are spending a fortune on trust experts who are helping them to ‘build trust’?

Join us for an interactive thought experiment where we look at the mechanics of trust – how it makes the world and relationships go round.

This event is part of ‘The Ethics of’ trilogy which includes ‘The Ethics of Trust’ and ‘The Ethics of Disagreement’. ‘The Ethics Of…’ is an intimate event series that offers an opportunity to freely examine the experiences, hopes and challenges that make us truly human.

GoodNorth GoodGathering
Wed 21st April 2021, 6:00 - 9:00 pm AEST

Details

Join us as we round out B Corp month in style. What better way than with an impactful event where we explore the SDGs with Mission Oriented Innovation – Guided by the legends from The Yunus Centre, Griffith University.

The purpose of this event is to get you talking, to help you get to know the other awesome people in the community, and go beyond connection to collaboration.

Our events are a-buzz with just the right kind of vibe. We are a high-frequency community of amazing, conscious people who are working to make the world the better place we want it to be. Sparks happen when we gather, so we got to thinking – this time, what might happen if we’re even more intentional about the impact we have the potential to make, as a group, for our part of the world? If you are picking up what we are putting down, then you gotta come!

GoodGatherings are for all Good Humans, independent of what you do for work. We are about what you intend!

It is a GoodGathering. Not a networking event. We pose a different question. Not “What do you do?” rather “What are you passionate about?” Or “What lights you up?” It’s the way we see what is in each other’s heart, our purpose.

Shared Value Masterclass Series
Thu 25th Mar 2021, 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm AEDT

Details

Impatient to change the world? Eager to connect ‘why’ to ‘how’ in your day-to-day work? Welcome to the Shared Value Masterclass Series.

To meet a growing appetite and need for socio-economic solutions, SVP has launched the Shared Value Masterclasses – a series of virtual workshops designed to cover both shared value theory and practice.

Defined as a strategy to solve social issues profitably, shared value has never been more important than it is today. And as we move increasingly from the why to the how, the Masterclass Series will get practical – connecting concepts to real-world examples, and focussing on how to put key shared value principles into action.

The series – running from 10 March to 13 July – begins with a foundational workshop, before sharpening your skills in share value innovation, partnerships and measurement.

The Masterclass Series is designed to cater to the varied priorities and levels of shared value knowledge across all organisations.

The Ethics of Forgiveness
Wed 31st March 2021, 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm AEDT

Details

There’s an old saying ‘resentment is like drinking poison and waiting for the other person to die’. It appears to be sage advice – offer forgiveness and move on from past wrongs – but is it true?

If you’ve ever been denied forgiveness, or on the receiving end of an ‘unforgivable’ act, you’ll know the angst and hardship it can cause. There are times when a wrongdoer can begin to feel like a victim in their own right.

If they’ve apologised and tried to make good for what they’ve done are they entitled to forgiveness? Does forgiveness really set you free?

Join us for an interactive thought experiment where we examine forgiveness, from personal betrayals to historical injustices on a national scale, and ask, ‘Are some things unforgivable?’

This event is part of ‘The Ethics of’ trilogy which includes ‘The Ethics of Trust’ and ‘The Ethics of Disagreement’. ‘The Ethics Of…’ is an intimate event series that offers an opportunity to freely examine the experiences, hopes and challenges that make us truly human. In this trilogy, the meaning, mess and morality of trust, forgiveness and disagreement are put under the microscope through playful thought experiments.

Conversation: Our 21st Century Imperative with Jay Coen Gilbert
Tue 1st December 2020, 11:00 am – 12:30 pm AEDT

Details

What is the energy required for 2020 to become the moment of pivot? What does it take to build a global campaign to shift hearts and minds towards systems change?

Fifty years ago, The New York Times published an essay by Milton Friedman which declared that a company’s only interest should be maximising the profits of its shareholders. This set the trajectory for our current economic system. Measurement of wellbeing and interdependence took a back seat to the endless accumulation of profit and individualism we now see where 26 people have the same amount of wealth as the rest of humanity, and the climate emergency is upon us. It’s time to reset.

Imperative 21 is a global campaign calling for this very reset. The movement represents more than 70,000 businesses, 20 million employees and $15 trillion in assets under management. The reset, amplified by the United Nations General Assembly, calls for accountability for our impact on all stakeholders, recognition of the interdependence of people, planet and our economy, and radical collaboration between the private sector, public leaders and citizens to build back better.

These global movements don’t happen without audacious vision and collective leadership. Jay Coen Gilbert is the co-chair of Imperative 21 and founder of B Lab. He is escalating the call for an economic reset and turning a lot of heads in the process.

Join us for this timely and potent conversation.

Conversation: Helena Norberg-Hodge on Local Futures
Tue 10th November 2020, 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm AEDT

Details

“Local. A simple concept with the potential to change the world. The antidote to consumer capitalism. The key to solving our seemingly endless ecological crises. A guiding principle to take us back home: to community, to the natural world, and to prosperous, place-based economies.”

For more than four decades, Helena Norberg-Hodge has been raising awareness about the need to return to local – to move away from dependence on global monopolies, towards decentralised, regional economies.

Since the advent of colonialism and globalisation, the fabric of local interdependence has been steadily unravelling, writes Helena. We have been made dependent on distant bureaucracies and vast technological systems for everything from our food to our jobs, from the information we receive to our means of social interaction. To our own detriment, we have been distanced from the complex, interdependent web of life that is not only the real, localised economy, but a perpetual source of wonder and fulfilment.

In this conversation, Helena will remind us that it’s not too late to find our way back home. Speaking to the growing movement happening worldwide in which local self-reliance is being reclaimed, she will show us how we can withdraw our dependence on a resource-intensive global economy and create nourishing, life-affirming alternatives from the ground up. Often the work of stepping off the treadmill can be overwhelming, where do you start?

Join us as Helena shares examples from her own journey, as well as those of the many incredible people she’s come to meet, in which local alternatives to education, food, media, politics and economics have been implemented around the world.

Masterclass: In Business to Save Our Home Planet with Dane O’Shanassy
Tue 27th October 2020, 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm AEDT

Details

Patagonia is the exemplar of business as a force for good, a global icon and a symbol of a hopeful future.

From humble beginnings blacksmithing pitons for rock climbers in California to a global outdoor clothing operation with offices in the United States, the Netherlands, Japan, South Korea, Australia, Chile and Argentina — and over 70 stores worldwide, Patagonia aims to use all the resources it has: its business, its investments, its voice and its imagination to protect our planet.

With decades of steadfast loyalty to environmental ethics, the company continues to grow its reputation and impact. Patagonia has become the subject of a Harvard Business School case study and won the United Nations Champions of the Earth award in 2019. What does success mean for a business balancing global retail, activism and storytelling? How do you lead a business with an outspoken commitment not to compromise, no matter what the financial success on the other side of that compromise might be?

Dane O’Shanassy is the Country Director of Patagonia Australia. His leadership embodies the very values that are so dear to Patagonia. Rather than striving to be a visionary of change and innovation, O’Shanassy sees his role as a custodian of something much greater, something in service to our planet, something intergenerational, something simultaneously humble and profound.

NENA 2019 Annual Conference, Perth – ‘Beyond Paradigms’
4-7 OCTOBER

Details

New Economy Network Australia (NENA) and the enkel collective invite peers in innovation and positive changemaking from across the New Economy spectrum for the 4th annual NENA conference. Titled “Beyond Paradigms,” it proposes that meeting the unique and urgent challenges facing humanity in the 21st century calls for new approaches, an openness to exploring worldviews other than our own, clarity in our communications, collaboration, and practical ways to navigate the ever-increasing complexity of our times.

The event is intended to serve those who have the courage of their convictions, but also the flexibility to entertain—and even embrace—divergent worldviews. Building this capacity is essential as we encounter and move through the extraordinary changes we face now, as a society and as a species.

The inspiration for the conference’s overarching theme, Beyond Paradigms, comes from Donella Meadows’ work, in which she describes the most effective points of leverage to intervene in a system as
a) the mindset from which a given paradigm arises, and
b) transcending paradigms entirely.

As human beings, deeply influenced by the contexts and cultures from which we come, we view our worlds through filters and lenses. The question then becomes, as we encounter each other, are we building bridges or walls between our views? Can we remove our own lenses, and try on someone else’s, even for a moment?

The future of humanity, and of our precious planet, may well depend on it.

Find Your Why – 3 Day Workshop over 3 Weeks
Wed, 22 July, 12:00 PM – Wed, 5 Aug 2020, 3:00 PM CST

Details

Imagine this. You ask me what I do. I could respond with, “I run workshops on Vision and Values, Design Thinking, Innovation and The Future of Work. I also run Innovation programs for organisations, so they can harness the input of their staff to increase productivity, improve workplace happiness and improve the bottom line”.

Or I could say, “I open hearts and minds, inspiring impossible to possible. Everything I do is about ensuring you reach your potential”.

We will workshop strategies that will inspire you to set your goals high, determine the actions you need to reach them, and build a great team and client base along the way. And what’s more, it’s all based in science and research.

Festival for the Future #FFTFLive
13th – 17th July 2020

Details

Festival for the Future is an initiative of Inspiring Stories, a New Zealand based charity with a bold vision to see young people realise their potential to change the world. Both the Festival and Inspiring Stories were founded in 2011 by Guy Ryan, who went on to be awarded the Young Zealander of the Year Award in 2015. The Festival began as a tiny 100-person event. While the Festival still attracts loads of young people, the audience has grown and diversified significantly to become much more intergenerational. You’d be hard pressed to find a more diverse group of people in one room, anywhere. The Festival is a powerful experience. It’s been called New Zealand’s most inspiring event and received world class reviews. The shift to this year’s digital summit opens up some really exciting opportunities.

The Coaching Summit 2020: Leading in Times of Uncertainty
13th – 28th July 2020

Details

A free live online gathering for coaches and change agents.

The complexity of the challenges we’re facing is unprecedented. We lurch from crisis to crisis, while our trust in the old systems continues to fall. Conversation has never been more fractured or polarised. The future is deeply uncertain.

And yet, amidst all the rising tension there are signals that something new is emerging. Beneath the noise of panic and reactivity there is an invitation to a radical new possibility. We are living in a moment charged with evolutionary potential.

During the two weeks of the summit, you’ll be invited to a variety of teaching sessions, workshops, panel discussions, and group practices, that will help us all experience a process of collective sense making and deep resourcing.
