How Workplace Learning Can Combat Climate Change | Pete Tipler | TEDxAberdeen

NOTE FROM TED: TEDx events are independently organized by volunteers. The guidelines we give TEDx organizers are described in more detail here:http://storage.ted.com/tedx/manuals/tedx_content_guidelines.pdff

Pete Tipler has a passion for learning and development, which has not only helped him in his own career, but has helped him to influence, shape and evolve the businesses he works for, including Xodus Group. Pete recognises that he was repeatedly given the freedom to learn, experiment and sometimes fail in a safe environment and surrounded by people who knew what they were doing.

If we are going to solve some of the biggest climate and energy challenges in coming years, he believes we need to do more of this, and quicker.

His talk focuses on using learning to unlock the climate change conundrum. We need to act more quickly to responsibly bring about the lasting change to our planet. Why not transform the way we harness minds for workplace learning to focus on helping the environment? This is after all what really matters. Every person entering the professional workforce for the first time spends their first year learning behavioural and analytical skills. That’s 2,000 years of learning that could be used to create meaningful impact by taking on world-saving projects, all while learning those same skills.

Pete has created a not-for-profit initiative called X Academy, which will reinvest training profits into further training, climate projects and innovations to help combat the issue of climate change.
