Video: The Vital Role of Activist Groups
Bill Shireman explains to Nick Aster, the founder of Triple Pundit, the role that activist groups have in putting a spotlight on issues that might not get enough attention. The activist and the business community often get stuck in the conflict and can't see any common ground.
This is where Future 500 comes in and brings the discussion to a higher -level to work on systemic solutions, says Bill Shireman. To illustrate his point, Bill mentions the work that Asia Pulp & Paper is doing with groups like Greenpeace, Rainforest Action Network, TFT, WWF, Future 500 and the Robertsbridge Group to end deforestation in Indonesia.
