Andrew Crosby, Founder of 3rd Horizon Earth

Our 4th guest was Mr. Andrew Crosby from 3rd Horizon Earth. Aiming for a "Regenerative World" that goes beyond the realm of sustainability, Mr. Crosby promotes innovative activities that are difficult to be dealt with by existing mechanisms (i.e., within the framework of existing social, finance, and judicial structures). Mr. Crosby also shared that, since there is no existing market for many of these innovative activities, they may face difficulties until a smooth flow of economic circulation is created. He also talked about what each of us can do, in terms of our consciousness and actions, in order to materialize a "Regenerative World" that goes beyond the realm of sustainability.

Joachim Monkelbaan, Climate Trade Lead, World Economic Forum

Our 2nd guest was Joachim Monkelbaan from the World Economic Forum, headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland. Mr. Monkelbaan shared his thoughts on the impact some of the existing policies may have on 1) sustainable trade, investment and people flow, 2) relationship between countries and 3) our lives in the future. We humans are emotional creatures, but we are also rational creatures. Mr. Monkelbaan's message left a strong impression that, instead of being pessimistic about our future, humankind will be required to build cooperative relationships based on "trust" while respecting each other.
