“Let’s change the world, let’s shift it

Let’s shake and remake it

Let’s rearrange the pieces”

Assim terminou ontem o Encontro de Presidentes do BCSD Portugal 2020, com a partilha de um poema de Wayne Visser, Director of Kaleidoscope Futures, Professor and holder of the Chair in Sustainable Transformation at Antwerp Management School and Fellow at the University of Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership.

Durante a sua intervenção, Visser alertou para a necessidade de passarmos de áreas de colapso sistêmico (as cinco forças de fragmentação: disrupção, disparidade, degradação, desconexão e descontentamento) para caminhos de avanço ou inovação sistêmica (as cinco forças de integração: seguras, partilhadas, sustentáveis , inteligentes e satisfatórias). Para as empresas, esta passagem significa criar valor integrado em 7 etapas: repensar padrões, redefinir parceiros, renovar princípios, reavaliar a performance, redesenhar produtos e remodelar estratégias.

“Change the World”

Let’s change the world, let’s shift it
Let’s shake and remake it

The patterns in the maze
The reason for our days
In ways that make it better
In shades that make it brighter
That make the burden lighter
Because it’s shared, because we dared
To dream and then to sweat it
To make our mark and not regret it
Let’s plant a seed and humbly say:
I changed the world today!

Let’s change the world, let’s lift it
Let’s take it and awake it
Let’s challenge every leader
The citadels of power
The prisoners in the tower
The hour of need’s upon us
It’s time to raise our voices
To stand up for our choices
Because it’s right, because we fight
For all that’s just and fair
For a planet we can share
Let’s join the cause and boldly say:
We’ll change the world today!

Let’s change the world, let’s love it
Let’s hold it and unfold it
Let’s redesign the future
The fate of earth and sky
The existential why
Let’s fly to where there’s hope
To where the world is greener
Where air and water’s cleaner
Because it’s smart to make a start
To fix what we have broken
Our children’s wish unspoken
Let’s be the ones who rise and say:
We changed the world today!
