About the topic
The parallels of our society with the imaginal cells today, and the applications of the Golden Rule as the behavior for our society to thrive. Focus on the importance of reconciling the Golden Rule with the SDGs, corporate governance and best triple bottom line practices.
The Golden Rule: “Treat others and the planet as you would wish to be treated”.
The imaginal cells: are single cell organisms in a caterpillar that, by connecting and creating larger cooperative networks, eventually becoming the butterfly. Individuals with a vision of a more compassionate and sustainable world become imaginal cells when they connect with others to bring that vision to life. +info about it HERE
About Reboot the future
In 2016, Kim Polman and Stephen Vasconcellos-Sharpe invited 25 of the world’s most respected leaders and thinkers to build potential roadmaps across business and government, based on understanding the potential power of the Golden Rule. The result was a landmark book, Imaginal Cells: Visions of Transformation. An exhilarating, thought-provoking anthology that explores how a compassionate approach to business, politics and the environment can transform our planet.
It asked: What happens when we let the Golden Rule guide us to shift our thinking and behaviour? Motivated and supported by the inspiration and leadership of the authors, including Al Gore, Paul Polman, Desmond Tutu, Muhammad Yunus and many more, Reboot the Future was founded to take up their unifying cause.
