So remember when I said we're going to be Skyping after the documentary "Bad Seed"? Well, I asked Tim, the man we're going to be Skyping with how he would like me to introduce him because he's so humble and low key. When I asked him if we could speak with him he immediately said yes which says a lot to me about who he is.
Anyway, he sent me an email and I was so impressed and inspired by it that I feel it is very appropriate to share this with all of you - I hope to see you all tomorrow evening!
You can introduce me as the Producer and Editor of "Bad Seed" and CEO of Bid Ocean, a company that employs 130 people in 8 countries. Scared Crow Productions is a sister company of Bid Ocean, as is another company I own called Progress Multimedia.
My companies represent a new type of organization. We are kind of like a self-funded non-profit organization. We engage in regular business but also have a number of development projects designed to create positive change.
Our ultimate mission is to create a new more sustainable human culture that nurtures the evolution of all life. We have a company devoted to facilitating healing and human evolution in the Philippines. In Canada we are starting this year to build a sustainable community on 160 acres. In India we have a 5 acre eco-village demonstration project underway.
We have a "Sustainability Manager" in India and the Philippines whose jobs are to research local and global sustainability issues and work with local organizations. Because awareness of sustainability issues are so low in India we do presentations at High Schools on climate change, GMOs and other issues related to the future of the country. In the Philippines we work with local organic farmers and community groups and do training and coaching for other organizations.
We have just recently developed a team of writers and are launching 250 new web sites that will feature all original content on a variety of topics.
I believe that human culture as we know it will likely collapse over the next 20 years and now is a good time to start building a new culture and the means to survive the collapse. Instead of trying to fix a hopelessly broken and mis-designed system we need to start from scratch and evolve from within and develop a new, intelligent culture that is truly sustainable.
I am not an expert in the GMO issue like Jeffrey Smith, and don't have time to keep up with all of the new developments but do have a good understanding of the issue and its importance.
