One of the things we discussed today in our #MRKT4201 IMC (marketing) class was ALLIES. How do we create them, where do they come from?
Perhaps my favourite tool for this is the SPECTRUM OF ALLIES model available through Beautiful Trouble 👉🏼 beautifultrouble.org/principle/shif…
I love their explanation of how this model can be used for activism 👇🏼

Proud to have given the first Presidential Lecture today at the United Nations ECOSOC.
For all its follies, the UN is one of our species greatest achievements. 1. It outlawed war and conquest as "the continuation of policy by other means," and deserves much of the credit for the decline of interstate war since 1946 and the global reduction in war deaths.
2. UN peacekeepers, though not always successful, on average keep the peace. (Here I am with my souvenir UN Peacekeeper blue helmet, posing with CBS News' Pamela Falk).

What does gender equality have to do with peace-building? a brief thread:
#UNSCR1325 calls for the inclusion of women and girls in peace-building. it recognizes that they 1) "are differentially impacted by conflict and war," and 2) play a critical (but undervalued) role in development efforts.

but not all #feminist models are created equal. different theories assert different assumptions about the intersection between gender equality, conflict, and peace-building. #GenderEquality #SDGs #PeaceBuilding

Brought this article by @hillaryrosner in @NatGeoMag w/ me to Surat Thani, Thailand as I pondered this quote: “Palm oil is unavoidable. Can it be sustainable?” Agree? Read. Ponder & Follow this thread for more…

#SDGs #Sustainability #PalmOil
In case you ever wondered where #palmoil comes from. Have a look at the #palm oil fruit here. From my visit to Surat Thani, Thailand to learn more about #sustainability in this industry. Read more here via @hillaryrosner on.natgeo.com/2E8fwW8
DYK: The oil palm tree—Elaeis guineensis—is not native to Asia but comes from West & central Africa. At the heart of the “sustainable #palmoil” debate though are #Indonesia & #Malaysia, which account for 85% of all production. 📷: young #palm in Thailand

Its official...the next five years of my life will be spent as Director of a new @UKRI_News @GCRF South-South Migration, Inequality and Development Hub focusing on relationships between #migration #inequality and process of #development across 12 countries ukri.org/news/global-re…
Migration between countries in Global South accounts for nearly half of all international migration, 70% in some places, contributing to delivery of #SDGs by creating opportunities for work and the transfer of resources, knowledge and skills. But...
...as @Tanjabastia and others have shown, there is a relationship between #migration and #inequality. Benefits of #SouthSouthmigration are undermined by inequalities in migration opportunities and by limited and unequal access to rights for migrants and families. Meanwhile...

Empower communities and build social resilience;
Establish legal and functioning management bodies;
Fully protect 67,000 acres of coastal ocean waters;
Make progress delivering on UN #SDGs.

We're at #CEDAW71, and will live-tweet the session. Minister Frankie Campbell has introduced the delegation, thanked NGOs for contributions, and introduced The #Bahamas as the most beautiful place in the world from space (as noted by astronaut Scott Kelly).

#CEDAW242
He is now giving information about the makeup of The #Bahamas -- being an archipelago, having a Family of Islands, and dealing with increasing frequency and intensity of hurricanes.

#CEDAW71 #CEDAW242
He has just mentioned that The #Bahamas was successful in its bid to join the #HumanRights Council.

Now talking about the importance of the #SDGs.

Steeling myself with a strong coffee to sit down and read major new report on avoiding dangerous #climatechange (@IPCC_CH #SR15, available here: ipcc.ch/report/sr15/). My takes to follow (1/n)
As always, the #peerreview effort by @IPCC_CH is Herculean. A couple hundred volunteer scientists read & cited 6,000+ studies to support conclusions w/ evidence. Responded to 42,001 comments in 3 rounds of review. The most robust process there is to establish scientific consensus
Now, this #SR15 report title is descriptive, but doesn't exactly roll off the tongue...
