Rio+20 - Escola Parque
|Rio+20_Edward Kellow (Lead Head of Training Programs), Escola Parque Student, Leonardo M. Dias|
It was a refreshing morning talking with Escola Parque students through leadership for sustainability dynamics during eventful Rio+20.
Diversity is key in the work I do. The most diverse is a team, the better. Diverse teams find more complete solutions because they consider a greater range of solutions and the global system is more represented. It was very exciting to see the students engagement and their advanced perceptions and visions about sustainability, leadership, our current habits and the future they would like to live. I was astonished! Refreshing, intense and INSPIRING.
Definitely we have to listen to the children; they are the future, they have an important wisdom that we, adults, normally loose.
Main topics discussed in our dynamics about Leadership for Sustainability, closely listening and talking with children: Born or become a leader, Active listening and observing, Confidence, Walk by the talk, Networking, Persistence, Deal with the unknown, Vision and Perspective, etc.
I really want to thank Carlão, Sancia Velloso, André and all Escola Parque team; LEAD International team and British Council for the invitation to do this conference.
