Bringing impact into your workplace

Many of us believe that only the leaders at the top can initiate real change and deal with the climate crisis. But this mindset of hierarchy may stagnate our ability to deal with the problem. Each of us needs to play a role in combating the climate crisis. Arnaud Gillard describes his experience of building a green team within a large organisation. We hope that his example will inspire you to look beyond the scope of the individual and leverage your position in the workplace to deliver real, meaningful change. Arnaud is an Experience Designer by trade and avid enthusiast in climate action and politics. Playing a key role in the development of GreenTeams in one of the world's largest tech firms. Arnaud believes that change in the workplace can have far greater effects than the impacts individuals attempt to achieve at home. Outlining how we all can redirect our efforts towards a more efficient form of activism. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
