Speech: The most important talk of the 21st century

Diego Horcajada, December 2017

Paul Gilding is an independent writer and advisor on sustainability, in his speech in March 2012 at the TED conference held in Long Beach California, he alerts us on the global economical, social and ecological crisis: the world economy has reached and surpassed the limits to growth.

Despite the scary topic of the speech, I strongly appreciate his invitation to think on rather than the end of civilization, the beginning of a new one. He is convinced, as am I, we can make it; we can be at the level required to face the challenge.

Yes, we need change at a scale and speed that scares many; we need to urgently prepare society for The Great Change and “the end of shopping”. We need to reinvent a new global economy and model of social progress.

I would be glad if you share your thoughts after watching it.
