Students of the World founder and Capture Your Flag interviewee Courtney Spence gives a TEDx Talk on the transformational power of multimedia storytelling for disaster relief and community rebuilding efforts. She talks about the potential of students and young professionals to be the changemakers and tell stories of progress that drive awareness around problem solving and sustainable solutions building in areas devasted by natural disaster or environmental distress.
Over the past two years, I've had the great pleasure of meeting Dave and Michael Radparvar as well as Capture Your Flag interviewee and Sandbox Network co-founder Fabian Pfortmüller. The inspiring threesome co-founded Holstee to create lifestyle goods that are designed with a conscience. It's been a joy to watch the Holstee story unfold as the company has combined messaging around living life passionately and purposefully with its own design and manufacturing efforts.
Today Holstee released their #LifeCycle film to bring the Holstee Manifesto - a call to action to live a life full of intention, creativity, passion, and community - to life via a biking passion narrative in an online video medium.
After you watch the embedded #LifecycleFilm, I invite you to watch Fabian Pfortmüller answer "What Does It Mean to Be Green?" as it relates to Holstee in his 2011 Capture Your Flag interview.
UPDATE 11/18/11: Wonderful Washington Post piece on "How the Holstee Manifesto Became the New 'Just Do It'."
Fabian is scheduled to come in for his Year 2 Capture Your Flag interview in early 2012 so stay tuned!
Be well. Capture Your Flag.
