Have You Been To A Climate Demonstration Yet?

Yesterday it happened again. I found myself amongst the people in front of the Danish parliament. I was screaming my lungs out for Climate Action and Greta Thunberg. It’s the second time that I have attended a climate demonstration in a couple of months. We want the politicians to legislate for climate and meet the expectations for the Paris Agreement.

It is an important place to make a mark for CARE – the NGO I work with. But also because it’s an important cause for me and my family. My 14-year-old daughter joined me, and had a ball, at the last ‘Fridays for future climate strike in Copenhagen.

Supporting this movement is something I see as a fundamental part of educating and empowering generation Z – they seem to be more activistic and more liberal than the millenials, and we (as parents and humanity) should support them in expressing themselves and the causes they want to stand up for, as much as possible.

Speaking of support, it’s not only for generation Z, You could support the cause too. And you should join us! Because it matters, but also because it feels like you’re a part of something bigger than yourself. I have a feeling that a climate demonstration like this will be portraited in the history books as a global movement rising for the planet – something that is very needed.

I see it as something that has been inspired by other movements through time – such as Martin Luther King’s work for black lives or Nelson Mandela’s work to end apartheid. It really does matter to be activistic and it’s great to see that these movements, through time, moves in waves.

It matters to put pressure on the politicians, the public and the media on a national, European, and global level. Let’s do this!

Help each other’s creativity

I want to propose something to you.
Something radical.
Something that could shift your brand purpose and how others view you.
I want you to see every friend connection as a mutual pact where you not only sign up to see what’s going on in each other’s lives on social media. Where you also sign up to help each other grow your creativity.

Help each other’s creativity

Where you help each other out.
In my perspective in my part of the pact, an online friend connection is as genuine as offline. Where online is simply an extension to amplify offline.

Where we help each other out – and not just click a “like” when your connection posts a picture.

I’m so blessed that I have a very creative network that launches things. They use blood, sweat, and tears to build something fantastic.

The smallest thing I can do is to share their work and their efforts.

I’ve started to honor those genuine friend connections and help them launch their babies that mean the world to them. Sometimes by referring their work to others or sharing their updates.

I see it as a way I can serve the world and some of the people closest linked to me.

I see it as brand activism and viral effect on an underground grassroots level, and that my friends, is one of the best things I know.

Share my enthusiasm for creativity?

A part of me is extremely creative and actionable. It’s almost like a lot of my ideas come from a huge enthusiasm for creativity that triggers creativity that again generates more enthusiasm. How awesome is that?

Some days I would even say that I am inside my enthusiasm for creativity “bubble” for hours on end. Getting the details right, let myself go “all in” in writing or art project and just exist in a place where there’s room for me and my ideas and not that much else. I think some define it as “flow”.

Flow is important because it makes us create good shit. Epic shit sometimes even. You have to schedule time to flow in your workday, where you can just go with it and create something deeper, or as Stephen Covey writes in his “7 Habits of highly effective people” – you have to focus on the “important not urgent”. I think it’s  the things that you are most passionate about that you end up defining as “important”. Important means flow and creativity and enthusiasm. So it’s all a great inspiring “cycles” to work in.

Do you agree? Do you share my enthusiasm for creativity?
