Nikolaj Coster-Waldau & Majken Gilmartin: "Global Goals: How Gender Equality[...]" | Talks at Google Nikolaj Coster-Waldau & Majken Gilmartin: "Global Goals: How Gender Equality[...]" | Talks at Google
1 week ago En
With just 10 years left to achieve the United Nation’s 2030 Agenda, the Sustainable Development Goals are once again in the spotlight. But this time, there is a sense of urgency. Amid growing threats from climate change and the frantic search for sustainable answers to an array of related global problems, one critical solution has come to the forefront: gender equality. A recent study, in fact, found that the most impactful tool for addressing global warming would involve boosting the education of women and girls while simultaneously expanding access to family planning services. Actor, and UN Goodwill Ambassador Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Global Goals World Cup founder Majken Gilmartin have been on the frontline of the climate and gender action agenda, raising awareness across the world. Through the Global Goals World Cup and activations at the United Nations, both have ensured that the conversations around both topics remain central to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals for a greener future for all. Panelists: Nikolaj Coster-Waldau – Actor, UNDP Goodwill Ambassador, and SDG activist, he is renowned for his portrayal of Jaime Lannister in the HBO hit series Game of Thrones as well as his outspoken work on gender equality and climate change. In addition, he is an ambassador for the Global Goals World Cup – a globally held sporting event that inspires amateur female athletes as champions of the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals. Majken Gilmartin – As the founder of the Global Goals World Cup, UEFA Coach and member of the Danish Football Association’s Commission Board, Majken has led a valiant effort in flattening the playing field for women in soccer. As part of her Global Goals World Cup initiative, she is now spreading the word about the urgency of achieving the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals through a gender equal lens. The Global Goals World Cup is held internationally and is the world’s leading SDG activation for women soccer players. Discussion points: - How does the struggle for gender equality speak to the global fight for the SDGs? - Why is gender equality in sports an important vehicle to activating the 2030 agenda? - How are gender equality and the fight against climate change interlinked? - And how do we ensure that policies focusing on gender equality push us closer to our Agenda 2030 goals? - What is the Global Goals World Cup and how does it raise awareness for the SDGs? - You recently participated in a climate awareness campaign saying that climate action is a no-brainer. In what way is climate action a no-brainer?

Talks at Google welcomes distinguished panelists Anne Dorte Riggelsen, Kathrin Susanna Gimmel, Kimberly Driggins & Olga Stella to discuss why, at first glance, Detroit (139 square miles, 213 years old) and Copenhagen (68 square miles, 1000 years old) may seem to have nothing in common. Yet, as cities with a similar population size of approximately 700,000, both have also emerged in recent history from near-bankruptcy to become centers of vibrant revitalization driven by the arts, architecture and design. Today, amid the growing threats posed by global warming and the paradigmatic shift in urban living prompted by a new wave of technologies, Detroit and Copenhagen are bringing their unique strengths and design solutions for the challenges of the 21st century, engaging citizens, creating economic growth, strengthening urban mobility, and adapting to a changing climate. Empowering Urban Communities through Design will offer a unique perspective into the dynamics behind the reinvention of two cities that have clawed their way back from the brink of disaster to become leading innovators in sustainability, mobility, and community engagement.

Dr. Mark Plotkin: The Healing Forest on Fire: Plant Medicine, Isolated Tribes [..] | Talks at Google Dr. Mark Plotkin: The Healing Forest on Fire: Plant Medicine, Isolated Tribes [..] | Talks at Google
2 weeks ago En
The Healing Forest on Fire: Plant Medicine, Isolated Tribes, & Climate Change Ethnobotanists are scientists who study the relationship between people and plants, often with a special focus on traditional healers and their botanical medicines. As rainforests disappear, however, many of these plant species face extinction. At the same time, due to acculturation, much of this indigenous knowledge is disappearing as well, often much faster than the plants themselves. And climate change—particularly changing rainfall patterns—is placing added stress on rainforest animals, plants and peoples. We see these impacts resulting from the Amazon fires that are devastating the most biodiverse forests in the world, crippling indigenous livelihoods and fundamentally altering traditional indigenous landscapes. For well over two decades, the Amazon Conservation Team (www.amazonteam.org) has played a pioneering role in biocultural conservation, working to protect both rainforest ecosystems and tribal cultures. Over 15 years ago, ACT began collaborating with Google Earth to help indigenous peoples map and better manage their own lands. To date, ACT has partnered with over 50 South American tribes to not only map tens of millions of acres but also to carry out projects in ethnoeducation, shamanic knowledge intergenerational transmission, sustainable livelihoods, and women’s empowerment. This talk details those efforts For more information: www.amazonteam.org

What is going to cause our extinction? How can we save ourselves and our future? "End Times" is a compelling work of skilled reportage that peels back the layers of complexity around the unthinkable--and inevitable--end of humankind. From asteroids and artificial intelligence to volcanic super-eruptions to nuclear war, 15-year veteran science reporter and TIME editor Bryan Walsh provides a stunning panoramic view of the most catastrophic threats to the human race. In "End Times", Walsh examines threats that emerge from nature and those of our own making: asteroids, super-volcanoes, nuclear war, climate change, disease pandemics, biotechnology, artificial intelligence, and extraterrestrial intelligence. Walsh details the true probability of these world-ending catastrophes, the impact on our lives were they to happen, and the best strategies for saving ourselves, all pulled from his rigorous and deeply thoughtful reporting and research. Walsh goes into the room with the men and women whose job it is to imagine the unimaginable. He includes interviews with those on the front lines of prevention, actively working to head off existential threats in biotechnology labs and government hubs. Guided by Walsh's evocative, page-turning prose, we follow scientific stars like the asteroid hunters at NASA and the disease detectives on the trail of the next killer virus. Walsh explores the danger of apocalypse in all forms. In the end, it will be the depth of our knowledge, the height of our imagination, and our sheer will to survive that will decide the future.
