83. Driving Policy Change and Personal Change - Jessica Templeton, Director of LSE 100
Play episode · 1 hr 31 min

Jessica Templeton is a political scientist and award-winning educator who is the Director of the LSE 100 course.

With expertise in global environmental politics and regulation of hazardous chemicals, Jessica is also a writer, editor and team leader for the Earth Negotiations Bulletin, a nonpartisan publication of the International Institute for Sustainable Development that analyses multilateral environmental negotiations conducted under the auspices of the United Nations.

I met Jessica at a fascinating AI conference and simply had a lot of fun talking to her. It was a delight to continue our conversation and find lot's of common ground as well as learn about her work in political science and policymaking. A really topical conversation for those interested in how political decisions are made and what we can do to influence them. 

Insights


  • The importance of outdoor activities in developing a connection with the environment and nature – excessive and mindless usage of technology may pose a barrier to that.

  • How external influences like the upbringing in a feminist household and being a part of a Quaker school with a unique and distinct focus on equality and inclusion helped Jessica develop her outlook on socio-economic and political aspects of life.

  • Discussion on the topics of gender discrimination practised in professional ecosystems, socio-economic issues, and their addressing, and the effectiveness and implementation of collective action.

  • Taking responsibility for one’s actions as an individual and their impacts on the environment and community.

  • How consumers must become conscious of the impacts of their shopping habits on the environment and thus pressure corporations into producing environment-friendly products by showing an increased inclination towards products and brands that are “green.”

  • The importance and functioning of institutions that work to bring people together internationally to shape policies and reforms regarding rising global concerns.

  • How one can learn more by trying to communicate the knowledge that they already have to other people.

  • How people with different expertise address and view problems differently.

  • The importance of sincere engagement in international negotiations.

348: The Evolution of The Miracle Morning Movement
With the world premiere of The Miracle Morning Movie approaching, I’ve been reflecting a lot on how TMM Movement has evolved over the past 12 years. What began as my little morning routine that I shared in a book, has since evolved into an international community and a worldwide movement. It’s had an astounding impact on millions of people as individuals and collectively, one person and one morning at a time. The Miracle Morning enables each of us to go out into the world as the best version of ourselves. It gives us the power to impact every life we touch and has had an immeasurable ripple effect on the world around us. Today, I’m looking back at how the Miracle Morning has evolved. Whether you’ve been practicing the Miracle Morning for years or just joined the community recently, I’ll be sharing tons of behind-the-scenes stuff you’ve likely never heard before, exploring what it really means to elevate the consciousness of humanity, and diving deep into just what makes this practice so transformative and powerful.
