People Planet Profit

A look at Nestlé’s Responsible Sourcing Studio in Thailand. Earthworm has shown us the power of working with people, those inside companies. What are their Values? What gets them out of bed in the morning? Why are they doing what they’re doing? So often we find that people have them, usually very strongly, but they’re so busy working that they don’t spend any time reflecting on them or asking themselves whether what they’re doing in their day is aligned.

Earthworm Reflection #1

We’re all rather busy these days and pausing for a moment to reflect or to ensure we’re aligned with our values is becoming all too rare. At Earthworm, we’re looking to change this. If we can, we think we can supercharge change processes.

Stone Voices

In the deepest, darkest, mostly unseen recesses of global stone supply chains, some of the world’s poorest people are striving, with help from local NGOs, to educate their kids and improve their lives. So far, we in the West aren’t doing enough to help them.

Podcast: Reconnecting in a Hypernormal world

In a new BBC documentary [Hypernormalisation], Adam Curtis looks back to the 1970s to chart a course to today, where nothing seems certain and our political leaders strive above all else for stability in a world they no longer control.

Where might we go? What’s next? My fellow Earthworm Founder Julien Troussier watched Curtis’ documentary recently and we spoke about it over lunch.

And then there was Jeremy Goon

It was very easy chatting with Jeremy. When people are open and ready to discuss challenging issues with disarming honesty, chats flow. Like my discussion with Jesslyne Widjaja, after talking with Jeremy I was left hopeful for the future. We do need a strong, viable palm oil industry but we urgently need it to deal wholeheartedly with the sustainability issues embedded in its way of working over the last 30 years.

Willoughby Park Flowers in Bloom

I wrote recently about Barrie Oldfield, one of my heroes. Barrie is one of those people who believes that everyone can do something and he’s spent his long life doing things to make things better, to bring change and to help people. He’s an inspiration and I love him very much.
