In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

  2. Sustainability 'for all' means everyone EXCEPT the elite.
    This man works for those elite, which is why he is Co-Director of 'The Prince Of Wales's Business and Sustainability Programme'.
    Do you REALLY think the Queen and Charlie-boy will live like peasants?
    What about William and Kate?
    Shall we make them eat gruel or do we let them off, as they are royals?
    What about the Rockefellers, Rothschilds, or George Soros?
    Sustainability is for YOU and ME and NOT for the elite, who are the ones pushing it.

  3. I think Jono should practice what he preaches and commit suicide, thus relieving the earth of one more evil human being.

  5. The problem is capitalism, why is it so difficult for people to see this? We are always going to have scarcity issues while things are purposefully made to be scarce! The rich are not going to allow any of this to happen to improve the life to their product! In Japan they cement the feet of lamb so that they dont have the need for big areas for them to graze. Same thing happening to all of humanity, cemented feet, tying of hands, however you want to term it.

  6. look.  its the Agenda 21 brown shirts 2.0.  The new face of the "green mask" so wonderfully exposed by Rosa Koire.  yes she is on youtube and speaks from direct experience working with the "sustainability" mob.  And they hide that agenda from you.
    the process of criminalizing what it is to be human by manufacturing dangerous climate models to enslave and neuter humanity.
    by the way- did you know there is now more forest in the world than 60 years ago?  but they wont tell you of the millions of trees planted by ordinary people.
    They have plans that would make hitler or stalin blush and they are now destroying the atmosphere and global environment with chemtrails in order to concur with their Agenda 21 enforcements.  FACT!!!

  7. evrything has to turn free, and then we are left with humans instincts, will we still kill, fight, hurt eachother, trying to win and climb a social latter- and that I believe is the question?, we think we are not an animal, but many signs show that we are still animals. But thats when we should be able to interact together, since we are a very cortical species.
    we have to leave capitalism, Imagine if everything is free, food, housing etc ets what will you then do I think the fact that many believe humans can't live this way is why we have a world as we do today, we have knowledge, we will learn more, and the resources on this planet is overlowing, we just need to find a way to share it.
    I will gladly work for free if the living cost is free. all I need to be is one component of the machinery earth

  8. These innovations in green technologies and self-sustainability (in energy production, sewage treatment and water purification) looks to be just an on-going process of greater fracturing and splintering. Business as usual for larger powers  who will strive to keep potential contenders and rivals separate, best way to do this is by encouraging them to be self contained. Even if entire communities or nations took up these systems, they would be nothing but a group of segregated clans and tribes under the thumb of larger energy producing powers (with the means to affect entire ecologies and weather patterns?). Would photovoltaic panels really be adequate to power the continued development and innovation necessary to stay competitive, with such threats as extreme weather patterns and climate crisis always on the horizon? Australia and New Zealand for example, have always been known to be staunchly opposed to Nuclear energy, but is this only because of their geographic location next to 2 giant land (if not 3) masses/power bases with distinctly different cultures and peoples? While these commercially driven innovations in Green technologies occurring in China at present, would they fit very well with this plan

  9. here is the path to radical redistribution of wealth – social revolution to anarchocommunism!
    And because you will laugh to me, it will never happen – capitalist will destroy our planet and governments will destroy our communities and will keep us in slavery!
    The other path is to self-educate about anarchism in general and about anarchocommunism in particular and how they dissolve the systems of power and control and redistribute the wealth, resources and political power equally to everyone  by the mechanism of direct democracy and selfmanagement!

  10. i'm sure he means well, however he's not up to speed on technology or economics

    LFTR liquid fluoride thorium reactors are as green as it gets and environmentalists are catching on, and you mine for rare earths you get thorium and vice versa

    to improve the human condition, including curbing population, we need more energy not less

    and i agree with hastingr, dependency on the state isn't sustainable


  11. He had me right up until the "Radical redistribution of wealth" part. You cannot get to sustainable by keeping people dependent on the state. There are lots of things we should "fix" a 90% tax rate is not one of them.

  12. Jonathon – writing more books. A sustainable future is actually about practically doing it. Respect your words- love to respect ur actual actions. What are they? cheers, John PS No disrespect intended – this is a very serious Q.
