The split-brain experiment – integrity maintenance in an activist, political and corporate environment
Guest Lecturer: Belinda Hellberg, sustainability consultant at 2050.se
Content: Some people know exactly where they belong, in what context they want to work and in what way they want to influence society. If you’re one of those "one-and-only", unconflicted, straightforward people – congratulations! If you’re a so-called 'tempered radical', you have most likely spent your time constantly balancing conflicting ideals, processes and goals. How do you find the equilibrium between intrinsic passions and professional beliefs? And is it really necessary to commit to “the one way”?
About: Belinda Hellberg has spent the last 10 years driving sustainability issues in the business community, civil sector and the political world. Working weekdays in one of the big management consulting firms while simultaneously roaming central Stockholm during the weekends protesting Big Corp while simultaneously serving as elected member at the board of Environment and Health, she has developed an interdisciplinary approach towards environmental and climate challenges. She will share her experiences and strategies on how to succeed in a conventional environment while at the same time trying to changing the system.
