“There must be more to life than having everything”, the American author Maurice Sendak once said. But what if we could have everything while pursuing this something more?
But do not get us wrong.
We are not talking about being greedy and continuing the unquenchable consumerism trend.
Right now, we have everything we need and so much more. But it seems like there is rarely enough. As a result, this wasteful way of producing and consuming products impacts the environment and poses an existential threat to us and the whole planet.
However, what we do talk about is creating more green enterprises and changing consumers’ mindsets. If we manage to do that, we will be able to end environmental destruction by introducing new and sustainable production business models and pushing consumers to make more ethical choices.
With more sustainable businesses and a larger base of environmentally conscious consumers, we can “have everything” (we need) while pursuing sustainability as the “more to life”.
But to create these green enterprises that are mindful of the environment, we must train the new generation of entrepreneurs. We must equip them with the skills they need to create their own sustainable businesses and identify opportunities for green innovations.
