Thomas Steininger in dialogue with Jan Artem Henriksson
In 2015, the UN presented the Sustainable Development Goals, a comprehensive plan for a sustainable world by 2030. The seventeen goals cover a wide range of issues that involve people with different needs, values, and convictions.
But the outer conditions to create a sustainable world need a comparable inner development. We, as individuals and organizations, also have to develop to be able to create greater sustainability. How do we need to develop? What could goals for inner development be?
Jan Artem Henriksson is part of a collaborative initiative that tries to find answers to the questions above. The initiative was founded by the Ekskäret Foundation, 29k and The New Division in Sweden, in cooperation with the with Stockholm School of Economics, Karolinska Institute and companies like IKEA, Ericsson and Spotify. They just finished Phase One where they selected 23 categories for human development that could help ensure a sustainable future for our planet. In Phase Two, they will look for ways and techniques how those transformational inner skills can be achieved.
In this week’s Radio evolve, Thomas Steininger speaks with Jan Artem Henriksson about an exciting initiative to articulate and implement Inner Development Goals for a world that needs us to evolve.
