From healthy food projects to public health campaigns, TED@Unilever highlighted ideas to inspire leaders at every level. At this TED Institute event, which showcased speakers from both inside and outside the wellness company, the focus was on what corporations and individuals can do to initiate change.

Below, some words from each of the TED@Unilever talks: 

“In most companies, the sustainability group is separate from the marketing team, which is separate from the communications team. Why? If we’re going to make sustainable living commonplace, we need to engage scale … When someone asks, ‘What is the case for sustainability?’ I ask, ‘Well, what is the case for the alternative?’” —Keith Weed, Unilever Chief Marketing and Communications Officer

“The greatest innovations happen when solving the most basic problems. At Next Drop, our vision is to create a world where everyone has access to basic resources…

Age is just a Number …

This is so true that age is a number.
I am practicing Karate for 13 years and I see , regularly, 65 years old people being in much better shape than people around 15 years old. They are in better shape but they have also an amazing fighting spirit. Many times, I have asked them the secret. They always tell me the same story. As long as they can do it, they will practice martial art and have fun. They combine this with healthy food.
Karate is a great martial art because you can practice every day, at home. This is based on the perfection of specific movements and KATAS. During your whole life, you, you will look for perfection while your body evolves. This forges an amazing “never give up” attitude that I find back in these people aged above 65 years, that I have met during KARATE Trainings and Camps.
This is so inspiring …

Miss Teen America is the new Icon of Tribal by Golda Jayne.

Miss Teen America is the new Icon of Tribal by Golda Jayne.

This Trendy Bag’s company has been created by my wife Jo Merzel and her partner Anna Bedetti.

I like this unique project also for its “give back” approach. Let’s go back to the origin of this project.

“Tribal by Golda Jayne” is the latest collaboration between fashion luminary Joelle Merzel and Anna Bedetti, who has reached into her past to create , a combination of Congolese tribal designs and Haitian workmanship.

“Tribal by Golda Jayne” is a unique accessories-based line featuring scarves, beach bags, totes, clutches and beach cover-ups all having been inspired by exotic African colorful tradition.

Handmade by local Congolese craftsman, the unique African fabric is imported directly from the Congo to our small local workshop in Haiti. There,the exquisite custom made fabric is artfully sewn onto the various Tribal products.

“Tribal by Golda Jayne” has a commitment to donate a portion of the proceeds to the Footprint Foundation., which is dedicated to helping

Congolese women who have suffered from atrocities, recover and rebuild their lives.

The Ice Bucket Challenge from another angle.

This is amazing to see the impact of ALS Ice Bucked Challenge in terms of awareness and Buzz.

This ice bucket challenge has taken off, during the last weeks, on the internet. The internet is an amazing tool and the ice bucket challenge is proof. The whole world is taking part, from Europe, America, Australia, and beyond, the whole world wants to be a part of it.

Everyone is just caught up in the connection to everyone else who is participating. Sometime, I see people making the challenge without really understanding what is ALS and why this fundraising and challenge have been created.

This is an amazing buzz and sometime I wonder why other other charities as in Africa didn’t receive the same support. We have there another kind of Bucket Challenge.

The answer could be in the way this ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has been orchestrated and supported by some key opinion leaders from the Day 1.

So if you have a big idea, it is up to you to realize that you can use the internet to your advantage and raise awareness whether it is for your charity, your business. The internet is here and can be used to boost the profile of any situation.

This is easy to say but not always easy to orchestrate. But as you can see from the ice bucket challenge anything is possible, it will go viral if you just use the right strategy.
