15 Juin B1-AKT INSIDER NEWSLETTER June Issue

Our Newsletter is out! « There are times when our work impacts us deeply — sometimes in ways we neither acknowledge nor understand. At B1-AKT, we believe that knowledge is most valuable when put to use for the greater good.

Option A- be smart, be safe, and tell: The infusion of new disruptive practices will be great, and moving forward it will be greater.
Option B- take risks, listen your gut, expose and embrace the uncertainties, and tell:

30 Mai We are all humans-All Lives Matter: a B1-AKT Statement

“Today, we are faced with many challenges.  Some of those are: seeing human dignity in the faces of the poor, the migrant and the elderly; seeing our responsibility for many of whom live in abject poverty; seeing our responsibility for educating our children.

So long as one, marginalized human being is considered a “problem” to be solved, we will continue to experience division and an absence of peace. Not even our brightest minds know how to put the world back together again.

20 Mai Invent Inspire Integrate & Guide Renewal

The landscape of today’s problems is rapidly changing. While we’ve made significant progress, many existing social challenges continue to grow in magnitude and complexity, and each year new problems arise. That dramatic change will not be driven by traditional thinking.

Designing solutions for today’s social problems requires an entrepreneurial approach, a mindset that embodies the characteristics of bold thinkers with audacious goals, crafting data-driven strategies with iterative solutions. And it’s important to note that this mindset is not restricted to the traditional definition of an entrepreneur.

Social Change Needs Our Soul!

13 Mai #WE ARE ONE CAMPAIGN B1- AKT Message of our ambassador JONATHAN MIDWOOD

“Our world needs more heroes” Albert Einstein.

Heroes come in many forms, young and old, male and female, who are mostly ordinary, everyday people whose acts of heroism qualify as extra-ordinary.

The defining qualities of heroism are: intentional action in service to others in need, or to humanity by defending a moral cause, aware of potential risks and personal costs.

Anyone can be a hero at any time an opportunity arises to stand up for what is right and just. Heroism can be learned, can be taught, can be modeled, and is should be a quality of being to which we all should aspire.

12 Mai #WE ARE ONE CAMPAIGN B1- AKT Message of our ambassador UMESH MUKHI

The power of words should never be underestimated. Words have power and deeply influence our lives. They seep into our consciousness and influence our emotions and our behaviour. They shape how we see the world. Words consist of vibration and sound. It is these vibrations that create the very reality that surrounds us. Words are the creator; the creator of our universe, our lives, our reality.

There is something about words. In expert hands, manipulated deftly, they take you prisoner. Wind themselves around your limbs like spider silk, and when you are so enthralled you cannot move, they pierce your skin, enter your blood, numb your thoughts. Inside you they work their magic

12 Mai International Year of the Nurse and Midwife

2020 is the International Year of the Nurse and Midwife! As in many other countries, people have been applauding to demonstrate their respect for medical staff. Nurses should not be “Heroes, just for one day”. Nurses are suddenly called heroes, though their work has always been meaningful and saved lives, not just during the COVID-19 crisis. Even before the COVID-19 outbreak, it was known that hospitals in many countries were suffering from years of budget cuts.


So let’s say our thank you, very loudly, but truly invest them with substance: that right now and when this crisis is all over, we will fight alongside you for the conditions and lives you genuinely deserve. #WEAREONE

Soyons humains, juste humains #WeAreOne

14 Avr Politique de transformation sociétale & Diplomatie citoyenne

Un besoin de transformation de l’action politique…

A l’heure du confinement de la pensée et de l’action citoyenne restreinte, les individus se demandent comment survivre ou comment les gouvernements doivent agir et régler tous les problèmes, sanitaires, économiques, sociaux, tout autant que leur désœuvrement.

Cette pensée est celle de la peur et de l’inaction. Sans vouloir défendre des gouvernements qui font des choix politiques, sanitaires, économiques, politiques, qui sont ce qu’ils sont, souvent inefficients ou maladroits, nous ne pouvons pas tout en attendre(suite…)

08 Avr L’Aube de l’humanité – Vers un projet politique et sociétal évolutionnaire, eudémonique, harmonieux et pérenne

Les gouvernements sont dépassés par la crise sanitaire et par ses conséquences sociales et économiques, les pires à venir, dans un contexte préalable, de contestation généralisée.

Dans l’opinion et sur les réseaux sociaux, apparaissent des appels – est-ce une conscience ? – à ce que le jour d’après la crise marque une rupture évolutionnaire avec ce que l’on a connu avant, tout en évitant de sombrer dans le chaos.

Dès aujourd’hui, c’est une véritable transformation de notre philosophie politique et de l’action publique, nationale et internationale qui est désormais nécessaire.

Le texte ci-dessous, est un essai de philosophie politique dont le but est de repenser et de reposer des éléments de vision politique au service d’un projet politique, d’un projet de société.

31 Mar Crossing the Rubicon : The Covid 19 Virus- by Global Sustainable Leaders Network

The most powerful positive we can take from this period of pain and disruption is that the system we’re all so used to will change forever. We will all be better prepared to co-create a new sustainable system. While we’re all practicing ‘physical’ distancing we don’t have to be ‘socially’ distant. Society is coming together in all sorts of creative and supportive ways. In summary:  Covid-19 is an opportunity for our collective growth and development. (suite…)

13 Jan Transcending Identities – A Greater Europe

By Laura Petrache and Yannick Le Guern

“The only thing constant is change” We all have heard this phrase. Maybe so much that we tune it out as a “cliché”. The world around us is constantly disrupting us, everywhere in our lives. Surely one will answer: we cannot control what happens to us, but we can control how we respond. But, how do we respond to change, and more importantly how can we influence or even spark it?

Article : De l’« invasion » à la nouvelle cité – Vers une Magna Europa

Laura Petrache et Yannick Le Guern ont créé un modèle d’intégration global, pérenne et européen des migrants pour transformer une crise en opportunité, basée sur un projet politique, sur des engagements citoyens individuels et collectifs renouvelés.

31 Août Create Seven: « A story about Change »

Co-operative Fire Circles. Come, sit a while and be together as we warmly move toward a more sustainable future for all.

We allowed space to connect head, heart and hand, we shared stories, our emotional drivers and histories, our frustrations and our hopes for the future.
