Our Cold War

Chamber of Beautiful Business, Stockholm

Saturday, June 8, 2019

Co-hosted by Abel Buko.


Cold wars are conflicts between nations that don’t involve direct military action but is pursued primarily through economic and political actions, propaganda, or proxy wars waged by surrogates. Climate change is our cold war in times of unbearable heat.

“It’s not the destruction of Earth only, that we’re facing”, says Sir David Attenborough, but it’s “our familiar, natural world, and our uniquely rich human culture” that’s at stake.

At the Chamber of Beautiful Business, Stockholm, we debated how a different way of doing business is necessary to help solve “Our Cold War” between humans and humans?
