Janine was invited to meet with Prince Charles some years ago – and clearly her message resonated. This Friday, Nov 19 NBC will be showing “Harmony”, a documentary inspired by Prince Charles and featuring Janine talking about how biomimicry:
Inspired by HRH The Prince of Wales, HARMONY captures on film in a way we’ve never seen before, an authentic leader on critical global issues. For the better part of three decades, The Prince of Wales has worked side by side with a surprising and dynamic array of environmental activists, business leaders, artists, architects and government leaders. They are working to transform the world, address the global environmental crisis and find ways toward a more sustainable, spiritual and harmonious relationship with the planet. From organic farms, to the rainforests of British Columbia, to rare footage of HRH interviewing Al Gore about climate change in 1988 – Harmony introduces viewers to a new and inspiring perspective on how the world can meet the challenges of climate change globally, locally and personally.

One of the hottest event tickets of the year is the annual TED Conference held in Monterey. From its roots in technology, entertainment and design, the content has expanded to include science, business, the arts and the global issues facing our world. Over four days, 50 speakers each take an 18-minute slot, and there are many shorter pieces of content, including music, performance and comedy. There are no breakout groups. Everyone shares the same experience – and you can share some of it via nearly 200 videos, from which I’ve selected the following as most relevant to Greenr’s mission to “Accelerate the Change!”:
Janine Benyus: 12 sustainable design ideas from nature
William McDonough: The wisdom of designing Cradle to Cradle
Amory Lovins: We must win the oil end game
William Kamkwamba on building a windmill
John Doerr: Seeking salvation and profit in greentech
Jeff Bezos: After the gold rush, there’s innovation ahead
Craig Venter: A voyage of DNA, genes and the sea
Majora Carter: Greening the Ghetto
