Kia ora all,
This is a roundup of some key developments, new articles and documents, events and more.
- Just did two sessions on Chairing the Board and on Good Governance for Selwyn District Council and recorded the sessions which are at these links.
- We do a lot supporting community housing and so last week as part of the Community Housing Aotearoa conference for 450 we released a “Community Housing: Legal Guide”
- Did you know that world leading innovation is going on right now in granting legal personhood for Mountains, Rivers, and Forests here in Aotearoa NewZealand – so what will this mean for #Governance and how these new ‘entities’ relate with both companies and people and the law?
Not many have considered this yet, so it was a privilege to co-write an academic article (a first for me!) with the amazing legal academics David Jefferson and Elizabeth Macpherson from University of Canterbury law school for the peer reviewed Transnational Environmental Law Journal.
Published this week by the Cambridge University Press, you can read it online here: https://lnkd.in/gfxdTNna
- I share lots of content on Linked In – to see it click this link and ‘follow’ and hit the little bell button to get notifications of new content https://www.linkedin.com/in/steven-moe-0b3b008a/
- A short video explanation of the differences between Constitutions and Shareholder Agreements: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3_bOXZvqJTw&t=2s
- Some of you asked what the new logo for Seeds Podcast means, so I did a post about it here.
Just to explain the #design:
– three seeds in the middle and I think of them as #Kahikatea which from #small #seeds become the tallest trees
– seeds look dead, plant them and they will grow with the right conditions.
– these ones are growing in size and expanding, like ideas
– there is also the #ripple outwards, as the #conversations spark new ideas and reverberate out
– alongside this is the #Koru, or could be a growing #seed, that has been #planted and now is sprouting
– for the listener I want each episode to cause them to consider their own impact and purpose
Seeds is now up to 347 episodes and recent ones social housing – a panel talking about structures and the future;
- Esha Chabra an amazing international journalist on her new book “Working to Restore: Harnessing the Power of Regenerative Business to Heal the World”;
- Reading out an article for Spinoff I did on Greenwashing and its dangers;
- Aimee Blake on Girls Who Grow and Future Farmers New Zealand;
- Leanne Holdsworth on Humanising Work – she is a co-author of a new book on that topic;
- “One thing I’ve learned as an entrepreneur” – a panel of 4 sharing their lessons – Saskia van der Peet, Jack Wood, Ben Scales and Rohan Mathias;
- Jennifer Hamlin on Animals and our relationship with them
- Work with me? If you need legal support, please email me – and if I can’t support you, I will commit to connecting you with someone who can.
- Just did an article for ChristchurchNZ on the startup ecosystem here https://www.christchurchnz.com/news/the-christchurch-start-up-ecosystem-grows-up
Finally, I love this poster James Luhrs created for a recent Canterbury Tech event where Seeds Podcast had a place – even got the new font right. It’s now up on a wall in my office. The lightning talk I gave – after an intro by a Mexican wrestler, will go up next week.
