Daniel Vivarelli uses his business, Starloop, to offer a counterpoint to capitalism. He asks us to up our anti in terms of accountability, to lever interfacing with the system not just for ourselves, but for the common good, both as a consumer and as a business. He offers an empowering insight on not only how to make sustainability sustainable, but ultimately profitable, regenerative capitalism - a step beyond sustainable commerce.

Hype Versus Impact
BY ANA MIHAIL
@ VOL 24
ON DEC 09, 2014
An entrepreneur at heart with a strong interest in circular economy development, Ana Mihail speaks about the opportunities we now have to contribute to a better future and collaborate to make a difference. The difference between following the hype or creating an impact starts at a personal level, choosing to take the path less travelled and making a stand for things that matter.

@ VOL 127
ON JUL 29, 2015
"Truth is, sustainability can only ever be a wish, or a hypothesis. It can never be a definition of a product, or a design, or even a city and why? Because first to know whether or not something is sustainable it actually takes some time so we can observe whether or not that prediction holds true."
Architect, Planner, Researcher, Consultant … Idealist and Futurist, Naomi C. Hanakata from FUTURE CITIES LAB, ETH Zurich in Singapore explores the notions of sustainability and our shared future on earth, by first taking a step back from the now ever so ubiquitous and increasingly hollow word itself in an effort to persuade us to re-imagine the idea for a truly better future together. Hanakata touches on a multi dimensional sustainability index that would allow humanity to make decisions based on a more holistic and comprehensive idea of sustainability.
This presentation looks far forward and runs deep and positions us to better tackle the challenges of a shared future.
This was "Presentation of the Day" on Friday, August 27th, 2015.
