We live in bubbles,
that are beautiful,
but also unreal
The World Economic Forum’s Global Risk Report 2021 is crystal clear. We can no longer wait for the fog of the pandemic and other uncertainties to vanish. For key issues such as nature and habitat, biodiversity, education and inclusiveness, technology and ethics, and of course our health, we need to find new solutions. Quickly and purposefully. In a world where turmoil and uncertainty are ever increasing. But in the midst of chaos and crisis lie always the best opportunities for transformation and real progress.
It is time for a resetThe global pandemic, economic crisis and fierce protests against inequality, have brought to the surface a deeper, more fundamental problem. Our current economic system encourages maximizing exclusive wealth over inclusive well-being. On top of that, the system also prioritizes individualism over common good and interdependence. Climate change and cumulative ecological crisis…
Balance in interdependenceGlobally, people need a balanced and economic system that reflects both human and planetary needs.

As a progressor, you create progress;

1. Connect with Self
I am a renowned speaker, author and progressor for nearly eight billion people and one planet, with everything else on it. The 17 SDGs are my compass and together form my purpose. Creating real progress, for everyone. Financially, socially and environmentally.
My work and life focus primarily on reconnecting with Nature, with Each Other and with Purpose; in line with the above described imperatives for the 21st century and the vital solutions for tomorrow’s world.
With the motto
Everything will be okay in the end. If it’s not okay, it’s not the end!
Wat about you?
Isn’t it a bit much or even overambitious?
No, we must be ambitions and set big hairy goals. As long as we realize them in tiny steps. Utopia is unattainable, but the road to it is the right direction and fantastic to walk.
But why then? Can I also make a difference?
Certainly, every day. By leading and being an example. For our children. And their children. And beyond that to everything and everyone. So that we become great ancestors too.
Walk the talk
It is not difficult and incredibly fun
