Jane Goodall – Sowing the seeds of hope

Jane Goodall – Sowing the seeds of hope

Jane Goodall with Cow and Mr. H at Concordia University

Each and every one of us makes a difference, each and every day. And we have a choice: What kind of difference are we going to make?

From an enthusiastic child, encouraged by her mother, to a woman who would not take “science is for men” for an answer, to a world changing scientist and science communicator – Jane Goodall’s story is fascinating, and the wisdom she has picked up along the way is inspiring and hopeful.

I was first made aware of this beautiful and profound talk by Dame Goodall trough one of the many sublime videos of The Inspiration Journey (Vimeo/YouTube). If you don’t have 25 minutes to hear the whole speech, the most important parts can be experienced in a beautiful way in their video.

Please enjoy this talk first held at, and published by, Concordia University on June 19th, 2014.

Trevor Noah – Any leader tweeting policy is ridiculous

Trevor Noah – Any leader tweeting policy is ridiculous

It’s frighting to see how quickly you can repeat the ills of the past when enough people are afraid and hungry

As a kid he was literally a crime in one of the most unjust societies in the world. As an adult he has become one of the most well known voices in the world. The story of Trevor Noah is interesting and inspiring. Not inspiring as in ‘you too can become a TV star’, but as in ‘even in bleak times things can change for the better, and no matter who you are you can be a part of that!’

Please enjoy this conversation with Trevor Noah, first published by Al Jazeera on February 11th, 2017.
