3 useful articles on Electric Vehicles (EV) future outlook

We have two cars in our family. I am proud to say that both are hybrid vehicles. This fact might show you that I am not a petrol head! Quite the opposite. 

Eventually we as a family will convert to electric vehicles (EV) one day. But so far there are few alternatives to realistically switch to 2 pure EV’s when you take our family’s annual travel distances into consideration (Holiday trips with the car exceeding 500 km, family size of 4+, a non reliable charging points network in Europe and fairly long charging duration per charge while on a trip).

Fortunately things are changing. That is why I wanted to share 3 current news items on EV developments I found interesting. Here they are:

TED Talk – Nature is everywhere

I am a parent. And probably you are a parent too. Parenthood for me is the most amazing challenge I had in my life so far. It can be very challenging sometimes but 98% of it is just pure enjoyment.

As the kids are getting older they begin to ask more and more challenging questions. In my case as we are keen gardeners, my wife and I get a lot of questions about nature.

Today I wanted to highlight this TED talk below. I hope you will enjoy it and it might help you as much as it helped me to find new ideas about how to bring nature closer to our children.

Stay informed. Some Corp blogs on Democracy, Politics and Sustainability

I will from now on provide short posts about the new era of Sustainability and CSR challenges after the world-changing Brexit decision and a surge of authoritarianism in the US (dare I say this T-word again…No I will resist for now).

Why? Simple. If you stay informed you know what is going on around you and you can make an informed decision. Something that is clearly missing in the daily Trump universe (there I wrote it).

Here are some interesting articles to read to finish of your week. 4 blogs from corporations and 1 from Jeffrey Hollender:

Have a good weekend everyone!

Never ever stop believing in our sustainable and global future

I am a global citizen and I strongly believe in the power of the globalisation for us and future generations.

Sustainability is a part of this believe. Sustainability is the driving power for a fair and just globalisation. And we as part of the Sustainability movement have made great progress over the past decades to do our bit.

The past few weeks have shown that all we have worked so hard for is under threat. Serious threat. The 45th President of the United States and the Brexit vote are the two single biggest threats to our common global future in general and the Sustainability movement more specifically.

I am not not a politically interested person. Quite the opposite. I strongly believe in the power of the individual and his/her strength to create a better world. Politicians in my view should just be representatives of these individuals. But this no longer seems to be the case these days.

I will not use more words now to state the obvious (if you are a open-minded and social person):

If we as individuals are not starting to do more for our freedom and global future we will have others make the choices for us.

And look where we are heading towards now.

The future can be a sustainable, just and bright future but only if each individual is doing their bit.

You personally know very well what it is for you. I know what it is for me. So lets get going and oppose those forces that are ruining our global and sustainable future. There really is no other choice.

2017 will be interesting

This is my first post here in a few months now. Somehow real life took over everything in October until now. But I will try to post as often as possible here again.

Some of topics I will write about will be:

  • The Trump effect on Sustainability as I see it.
  • Sustainability trends in 2017

More topics to follow.
