About the event

It is said that there is no outer change without inner change. Regardless of whether we work to mitigate the climate breakdown, biodiversity loss or on any other major change initiative, focusing solely on outer solutions, without also growing our inner capacities, will not get us to our desired destination. The Inner Development Goals (IDG) Framework highlights skills, qualities and abilities that we must grow individually and collectively to create the future we all desire. We will explore how the IDG framework applies to our own change work; which IDG skills or abilities were in place for successful projects and which ones were lacking in unsuccessful ones?

We will also explore the initiative that provides an inspiring vision, roadmap and practical ways how to reduce our individual and collective greenhouse gas emissions by 50%. The aspirational commitment to reduce nation state-wide GHG emissions by 50% by 2030 will very likely not be accomplished, as there are only a few years left. We will speak about the tension between individual and system-wide action to collectively: drive less, fly less, buy less, eat less (red meat), screen less & use less (energy). The slogan: minusfiftypercent it!

The presenter, Julius Halaschek-Wiener, founded the initiative in 2019 as a way to inspire climate action in societies (governments and individuals alike) that are stubbornly resistant to the necessary changes. Realizing that perhaps we truly lack the inner skills to accomplish these big, yet necessary, changes, he has recently started to integrate the IDG framework in his work. Julius, originally from Austria, follows a life-long pursuit of simple, green and sustainable living, holistic health and well being. He holds a PhD in Cancer Genomics and currently works to improve the healthcare system in Kootenay Boundary. He lives with his family just outside Nelson.
