More time, less words, more clarity
It always takes time to be concise. "Help me with a few bullets to remember our conversation yesterday about education and why learning is a better word today to ask attention for this aspect of conservation and sustainable development?" I first used about 350 words in a mail to answer this question. Later in the day I took the time to summarize it in these few bullets. It helped me too to get more clarity.
A sustainable future requires change at all levels. Change is an individual and emotional event – that depends on collective actions for success. Deep listening, communication, learning and facilitation can help to create the will to cooperate: the key to trigger positive behaviour change.
