The Activating Sustainability podcast looks at a host of sustainability topics, unpacking the issues, dissecting the solutions and inspiring others to share in our vision.
In episode 10, our host Chris Peterson is joined by Anthesis Associate Director, Philipp Rosenthal to discuss how we can adjust our mindset to get through a crisis. Philipp shares insights into how empathy plays a role in strong leadership and effective communication paving a path beyond COVID-19.
Philipp draws from one personal experience in particular that profoundly impacted how his family reacts to crises. The story traces how social activism was born from a personal crisis while living in Kuwait, resulting in the co-founding of Project 189, an NGO focused on migrant worker rights in the Middle East. In recognition of his work, he has been awarded the Japanese Ritsumeikan Award Gold in 2013 for contributions to freedom, peace and humanity, and, as co-founder of Project 189, was a finalist for the global Nelson Mandela Walk Together Prize.
As an Associate Director in Germany, Philipp’s work focuses on sustainability and circular economy consulting with an emphasis on sustainability strategy and reporting, carbon emission mitigation, energy management and human rights consultancy.
