Eid Mubarak to everyone celebrating!...
It exists in the beauty we create, the goodwill we offer, the ideas we spread, the causes for which we stand, and the lives we help transform. #ManifestoMonday #mondaymotivation
We are all part of one another...and yet, we live as if we are separate from each other and from the living beings on whose success we all depend. A new moral framework is critical to our shared future. #poetry #kahlilgibran
Community matters for all of us. Social entrepreneurs should be intentional in building it. Because the work is hard; the pressures, intense; and loneliness is inevitable. Building a cohort around you to accompany you through hard and good times is essential.
Huge congratulations to the amazing @RoshanehZafar and her team! What a journey building Kashf has been- 25 years, millions of poor women and their families' lives impacted, the system changed. Because you dared. And you persisted. This is what a hero looks like. twitter.com/RoshanehZafar/…
It can be hard to imagine future events, but this is an ingenious way to remind us of the seriousness of potential climate catastrophe – and of our collective responsibility to do something about it. 🌎
…It's safe to say that the water height is well above my head.
Turns out that the Battery Park City Authority used the blue paint to mark the height of potential flooding from future severe weather due to climate crisis...
On my early morning walk in NYC, I noticed that some of the streetlamps lining the river at Battery Park City were painted blue. 🧵x

You may not yet have a crystal-clear sense of YOUR purpose. That's okay. It will grow with you. #ManifestoMonday #mondaymotivation
What conversations are we having with trees, with nature, with ourselves? If more of us took time to listen to the sounds of the planet moving and breathing, we might see ourselves differently. And when we see ourselves in a new light, might we then treat each other in new ways?
Happy🌍Day! Grateful for this Earth that sustains us and surrounds us with beauty, nourishment, home. We are here not only to enjoy it but to serve as stewards..instagram.com/p/CcpJMgmqhDu/3 #earthdayy#EarthDay202226
‘Small’ and ‘marginal’ farmers account for more than 80% of the total number of farmers in India. However, they face multiple risks and their share of the pie is only 44%. Agriculture needs to evolve. In our latest article, Karnik Priyansh dives in — bit.ly/3xNtSqS

Change is never the result of one person, but of a community bound by shared purpose -- and, in our case, deeply held values and commitment to one another's leadership, as well as to our mission. I am beyond grateful and full of emotion and the day hasn't even started🙏

Amazing and wonderful to see an @Acumen alum doing such important work in the world. And what a team! Good luck @deeptidoshi, @elipariser and @TaliaStroud! twitter.com/deeptidoshi/st…
Too many who yearn to make a difference become paralyzed by the fear of leaping without having worked out every detail. Yet the decision we face is not to chart the perfect way forward; it is simply to embark on a journey. #ManifestoMonday #Mondaymotivation
On the psychology of change… @richroll: “Shaming people isn’t gonna move the needle. It might make you momentarily feel bigger than the other person, but that’s a fleeting thing.” @jnovogratz: “I’ve never seen it push people to act.”

If we cultivate imagination in children, they will learn to dream. If we cultivate moral imagination in them, they will learn to care about others as well. Fairy tells and fiction can do both. twitter.com/holdengraber/s…
We human beings are nothing, if not resilient. And those of us who are determined to make change have no choice but to develop within ourselves the courage to fail, to fall down, and then get back up and try again: instagram.com/p/Ccc6kVgMk-B/
Food connects us in so many ways – to each other, to our cultures, to our beliefs, to our planet. Congratulations to our 2022 Food Systems Fellows, and my deepest gratitude to @RockefellerFdn and @roysteiner for food wisdom and partnership. twitter.com/AcumenAcademy/…

And the @Acumen Fellows ask how to share what we've learned and gained -- and that is the right question. Not taking this for granted. Privileges come with responsibility. Thank you @TEDTalks. #ted2022
What a day yesterday! Talks about the future and today, mental health and play, fighting pandemics and understanding the brain. Not taking a moment for granted. #ted2022
I promise I won't only post selfies. But what's better at the end of an inspiring day at TED than music and dance with @Acumen @AcumenAcademy fellows? Thanks to @BavidraMohan for keeping the tradition alive... #TED2022
Last night was our first night of #TED2022...and @AcumenAcademy Fellows are in the house! Thrilled...

I mean, can you imagine I get to work with these two to dream and build a school for the business of change? ....and we're just getting started in building a community with tools, skills and the moral imagination needed to solve our toughest problems. twitter.com/BavidraMohan/s…

The progress that impact investing is making in Latin America is exciting, and I was deeply impressed by the social entrepreneurs I met at #FLII in Mexico last month. Thrilled to see so many women in the region leading the way. Here are just some of their inspiring stories. twitter.com/NewVenturesMX/…
Bravo, Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson! The US is lucky to have your intellect, wisdom, grit and grace presiding on our highest court. twitter.com/AP/status/1512…
You can imagine how proud the @Acumen community is to hear that Phool just raised an $8 million Series A. The world is taking note of our need for models that are sustainable and inclusive.
Changing habits isn’t easy. Doing so with a new business concept that is not only sustainable but inclusive can seem a bridge too far to the conventional. But Ankit Agarwal, a @AcumenAcademy fellow, is the opposite of conventional in his approach to rethinking systems.
Daily, Indians carry 8 million metric tons of flowers to temples as blessings. Temple priests later throw the flowers into sacred rivers where people bathe & seek further blessings. But the flowers tend to be coated in insecticides & pesticides, poisoning both people & the river.
Circular economy companies (those that re-use waste to create a new product) are gaining traction. One of my favorite examples is @ReachoutToPhool (meaning flower in Sanskrit), a company created by Acumen Fellow Ankit Agarwal who uses vibrant flowers as the basis of the business.
If we are going to shift systems from those driven by profit to those with our humanity and the earth at the center, we have to rethink and rebuild our systems, both economic and cultural. 🧵
Thinking fondly of the Skoll World Forum, under way this week. In the past 20 years they’ve nourished and expanded the entire social enterprise community. As a long term partner, I’m deeply grateful. The world has changed because @SkollFoundation is in it. #SkollWF
