    Sustainable You - A Thinking Sabbatical

    Sustainable You - A Thinking Sabbatical

    Welcome to Season 2 of The Change Troubleshooter, The Sustainability Season.
    Today Nina is joined by Amy Rhoda Brown, a Toronto based strategy coach who helps artists and creators who want to begin or expand a creative practice.  To be creative you have to allow your brain to operate in its default network state, basically unstressed. Overloading our brains with constant input and stimulation is counter-productive to peak performance and creativity. If you want to achieve that "Aha" moment, just let your brain be and have a thinking sabbatical. This episode is also available as a video, click here to watch it

    What does an Activist look like?

    What does an Activist look like?

    Welcome season 2  of The Change Troubleshooter – The sustainability Season.

    Today’s episode is called: What does an activist look like? 
    What image is conjured up we hear the word activist? We may think of dirty, straggly haired ultra extremist radical types, chained to railings or dug in in tunnels, risking life and limb and even arrest and imprisonment, in defence of their true and noble cause, so strong are their convictions.
     But if we’re honest with ourselves, we know they’re not all like that. So, what does an activist look like?
    Nina spoke to Zoe Cohen, Director of Shine Coaching and Consultancy, a highly experienced Master Coach who has worked with senior leaders across every sector in the economy. 
    She’s run her successful coaching practice for over 10 years and has been passionate about sustainability all her life. 
    Zoe is also an active member of Extinction Rebellion.

    Can we be Sustainable with or without Data?

    Can we be Sustainable with or without Data?

    Welcome to season 2 of The Change Troubleshooter, the sustainability season.
    In today’s episode,   Can We Be Sustainable With or Without Data?       Nina is joined by 
    Federico Pettinella, Anders Praestholm and Alan Walker, three guys who work in data technology.
     Every time we write an email, take a photo, download something from the web or send a message on Whatsapp, we are creating data. The amount of that data is massiveand growing quickly. 
    Business and industry create even more data than individuals and it all has to be stored somewhere. This accumulation and storage of data is not free, it comes at a cost, and not just a financial cost – the cost to the environment is considerable as stored data requires massive amounts of energy to keep all those computers running. 
    Our ability to analyse data is essential to good decision making, it’s how we know we have climate change issues but creating and storing too much data make decision making difficult. How do we find the right balance of quality of data, over quantity?
