This weekend I visited Andras Laszlo in his home in Brussels. Together we started the movement referred to as the Spiritual Transformation of Business (STB). The home of Andras is a library full of knowledge which he offered to the STB community to become the spiritual location in the center of Europe for encounters, interviews and the coordination of servant activities of support to the world of business in transition. Yesterday we downloaded a first recording of a recent encounter in his home. The intellectuals answer the questions of Andras of the new spirituality in business.
Soon we will start a blog that will collect more videos, share book reviews, introduces new members of this servant community and movement. We will also comment on best STB practice as it develops across the world.
Together with our partner Andras Laszlo, ceo and founder of GlobalVisioning.net the STIR Foundation develops leadership of change throughout the world. Today Andras is in Dubrovnic where an inspiring leadership encounter is taking place with online participation from many countries.

Two pictures on Twitter today got me to wonder what our chances still are as humankind.
Wave of air pollution
A wave of air pollution is travelling across Europe. On monday (April 23rd 2015) Paris closes for traffic.
Water pollution from nuclear disaster in Japan leaks and affects the world.
Antropoceen, the era of the 6th life destructive force since the birth of Earth, is attributed to modern humankind.
I tend to bring in some nuance. It can be attributed to organized human greed and lack of sufficiently established and followed harmony defending leadership.
At City of Tomorrow we do our best and certain initiatives grow fast (AiREAS, STIR Academy) but is it fast enough?
With great admiration for this self aware Chinese citizen. AiREAS is on its way to sign a first memorandum of understanding with a Chinese province who wants to tackle this issue together.
Originally posted on Global AiREAS:
Here you find a short intro of the impressive document of Chai Ling about the air polution in China and her own awareness breakthrough when she realized how vulnerable her new born daughter was in this situation. The document is a statement that calls for responsibility in the whole world, not just China.
Her awareness breakthrough is similar to the one experienced by the founder of the City of Tomorrow and AiREAS, single father Jean-Paul Close, who also came to the life mission to cocreate a society in which health and safety is carried as basic responsibility above politics and economics. He also became aware when having to deal with his responsibility for his two small children. With the image created by Chai Ling and the sustainocratic organization for “healthy cities” of Jean-Paul Close through AiREAS we can take responsibility all together, first as human beings, fathers and mothers…

In 2010 I was invited to talk during Inspiration Days commemorating the 10 year anniversary of the Earth Charter, a declaration of all kingdoms and leaders do take Earth seriously. Now, years later, I review my speech and still second it 200%. Furthermore. I made it happen, word for word, because I could not find anyone else:
Part 1 explains why….
Part 2 explains how…..
And we did. AiREAS, FRE2SH, STIR Academy and SAFE grow now. As they grow they introduce value driven change.
Nice to see it back.
