“As long as the general population is passive, apathetic, diverted to consumerism or hatred of the vulnerable, then the powerful can do as they please, and those who survive will be left to contemplate the outcome.”
It doesn’t matter how loud I sing, I will never sound like a choir.
Collaboration makes the task more fun and, most of all, it amplifies the potential of what can be achieved.
It also makes us happier. As recent studies show, cooperation between individuals lights up reward centres of the brain.
If you have an interesting project or an idea that you think would sound in tune with what I do, then why not working together?
If you are working towards bringing positive change and look for alternative economical models that favour human and nature wellbeing rather than capital gain, then let’s join forces.
If you are a psychologist, a sociologist, an anthropologist, a doctor or your work focuses on happiness and wellbeing then by all means do get in touch. Your expertise is very much needed.
If you are a researcher and you are looking for a photographer or filmmaker to do field work, then drop me a line. I am always happy to contribute to good and valuable research.
If you would like to help but you don’t know how, then please do get in touch anyway, we will figure it out together.
“You mustn’t be afraid to dream a little bigger, darling.”
If your brand or company is looking into investing in environmentally friendly projects, if you seek exposure for your new products or you are looking for someone to test your prototypes, I welcome all sort of collaborations. Please do not worry whether your contribution might be either too large or too small. If I believe in what you are doing, chances are I will try to help in any way I can. At the same time if you believe in what I am doing, please do feel free to help in any way you can.
But before approaching for a possible sponsorship, please check whether your brand ethics are in line with the values I try to promote. In order for us to build a successful and valuable collaboration we need to make sure certain principles are fully endorsed.
Every aspect of the company, from design to production and distribution should aim towards the following goals:
- Design products that are energy efficient, durable and easily fixed or at least they should allow for individual parts to be replaced.
- Minimise waste, favour the use of recycled materials and use renewable energy.
- Reduce or eliminate the use of fossil fuels or their derivates.
- Reduce income disparity. (I am not suggesting to move to a communist system, but an income disparity of over 1/100 is both ridiculous and unjustifiable).
- Reinvest profit ethically (i.e. not financing the weapon industry or companies that operate in dubious areas)
All of these goals are achievable. There are plenty of examples out there.
If your brand cannot reflect these principles, well, thank you but no thank you. I am not claiming the moral high ground here, but I do believe no company can afford to be exempt form its responsibility towards the environment and the society it operates in.
If on the other hand you are one of those dreamers that think the world can still be saved and you are ready not to shy away from your responsibility as a business, then you have found your knight in shining armour, because I will herald your name with pride and fervour to the four corners of the world.
