Summary, etc.: Ecological Awareness with Daniel Goleman - The Ecological Awareness series follows Goleman as he talks strategy with leading thinkers through the life cycle of Ecological Intelligence – from its roots in the deep interconnection of human and planetary health, to our emerging power as consumers to know and guide the ecological impact of corporate practice, to the business leaders that will evolve their practices to prosper and flourish in this new, radically transparent climate. Part 1: Buyosphere: The Consumer Awareness Revolution With Dara O'Rourke, Ph.D: Goleman and O'Rourke, founder of GoodGuide – an award winning Web startup revolutionizing consumer awareness – detail emerging technologies that reveal the hidden impacts of every product we buy: on society, the environment, and our health. This comprehensive information allows us, for the first time, to fully align our buying habits with our values, and shift the balance of power from company to consumer. Part 2: Radical Transparency: How Business Can Leverage Consumer Climate Change With Greg Norris, Ph.D: Norris founded and directs Sylvatica, an international Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) institute which consults to the UN, governments, Fortune 500 companies, and business leaders around the world. His free, open-source LCA platform, Earthster, offers ubiquitous empowerment for businesses to quantify and lessen the negative environmental impacts of each product's life cycle – from raw materials to disposal. Norris offers businesses practical steps to leverage the coming shift in consumer awareness to increase market share and create a prosperous, sustainable future for the planet. Part 3: Environmental Health, Human Healing with Michael Lerner, Ph.D. Goleman and Dr. Lerner, head of Commonweal, a nonprofit health and environmental research institute, lay the foundations for a holistic, ecological vision of illness. We are living in an era of untested chemical use and outdated toxin regulation, and the resulting damage to our environment factors into hundreds of modern diseases, disorders, and conditions. Goleman and Lerner guide us through the deep interrelation of planetary and personal health, and show us how to develop an ecological intelligence that maintains the integrity of the web of life. Lerner explains how we can heal ourselves by healing our world.
