At a time when all of the world's countries are deciding how to agree upon policies and common measures for reducing our energy consumption and pollution, along with preparing for the post-carbon age, it is our duty to unite and contribute.
It seems to me that there are three essential steps of action to be implemented:
1. To help companies and organisations, via training-thinking tools, to establish their dependence study in comparison to the carbon cycle and to monitor their mutation by working on behavioural issues and the new processes to be adopted and integrated.
2. To identify new professional fields which are generated by green growth in domains as varied as housing, transport, waste management, food, transportation and renewable energy. So, the industrial society age built upon the mass use and destruction of natural resources is going to become history, giving way to a society in which new energy and more smart information management become pathways to success. We are entering a post-carbon era in which its new professions are to define and construct.
3. To contribute to the global development of innovation culture in order to find means, thanks to new ways of living and consuming, to make the economy less dependent on the immoderate use and, consequentially, the degradation of natural resources. The implementation of professional communities, within all economical and social organisations, integrating this new paradigm within their exchanges, will facilitate this unprecedented mutation. Organisational learning will naturally play its part.
With its ability of being one of the levers for these deep changes, our job is also present in Copenhagen
