Kindness, Truth and the Circular Economy: GoodFest 2019Friday 3rd May 2019
Highlights from the recently wrapped GoodFest 2019: a “creatives on the beach” conference in Cornwall for designers and communicators exploring how to create sustainable change through purposeful ideas and actions.
“Kindness is a competitive advantage. You can’t go to work and just leave your morals in a bag by the door anymore, swipe your lanyard to get in and then pick them up again on your way home.”
“Set the bar low and clear it. Set it a tiny bit higher and clear it. Set it a tiny bit higher again, and clear it.”
Mike Coulter – Tiny Habits
“We don’t have a big sign above the door. There’s just a little A-board outside that says “Be Nice or Go Home”, and it works.”
Ben Quinn – Woodfired Canteen
“The problem is that there’s comfort in making the wrong decision, but in making it together.”
Sir Tim Smit – Eden Project
“Success isn’t eight points in the future, it’s what you’re doing now. Enjoy it.”
Tom Kay – Finisterre
“Between 2002 and 2012, more plastic was produced than in the rest of time.”
Hugo Tagholm – Surfers Against Sewage
“If you want to start something, talk about it like it’s a future truth.”
Chrissie Levitt – Creative Conscience
