When money is often associated with corruption and greed, how can we shift our money mindset to be more confident and unafraid to work with it (given that this is how our world operates), so that we can better use it as a means to help improve our world? What can we do to begin meaningfully addressing the issues of disease, poverty, and climate change altogether?
Sharing his wisdom here is Devin Thorpe, author, speaker, and founder of the Your Mark on the World Center. You'll hear about why having the right money mindset is important for making a positive impact; why corporations aren't going away and what we can do to better hold them accountable for their work; the interconnected relationship between poverty, disease, and climate change; and more. Let's dive in!
[7:20] Devin: "I think all of us in the sustainability world on some level resent the influence of money. But the fact is–money is what makes the world go round."
[11:47] Why corporations are a necessity in our world today and what we can do to require more responsibility from them.
[12:39] The fundamentally flawed idea that a corporation's sole reason for being should be to create shareholder value.
[20:58] How the issues of poverty, disease, and climate change relate to one another.
[24:22] The role of politics in climate change and poverty and how these are nonpartisan issues.
[27:04] Devin: "I really think we need to take personal responsibility and never ever, ever forget the astounding need for us to be politically active—we must do both."
