Global Voice magazine #17: Walk On. Compiled and edited by Tom Gamble
Stop. And Go
Welcome to this 1st quarter 2021 issue of the Council on Business & Society Global Voice magazine #17!
You may notice that the cover image and subtitle have been purposefully chosen for this first issue of the year. In many of the countries we live in, the pandemic that had brought the world to a halt back in early 2020 is still with us and indeed still affects how many of us work and live. The pandemic has acted much in the same way as a double-red traffic light, stopping large numbers of people from freedom of movement, social interaction at work or with friends and family, and the ability to travel to see their loved ones who in some cases may live on the other side of the country or even planet.
Walk On is not a message to cross the street despite the red light – after all, safety is at stake. It also doesn’t mean breaking the rules necessarily imposed by governments to help fight the spread of the pandemic. But it is a message that despite the constraints and challenges, perhaps too a sense among us that the pandemic will never end, people must walk forwards, walk tall, and carry on.
The 102 pages of this issue allow us to have that particular freedom we have that cannot be taken away: the freedom for our minds to wander and travel, imagine, ponder, explore and learn. From nature-based business solutions to better and more ethical governance of supply chains, social accounting, green tech, children’s rights and the positive impact of women in leadership, the 13 articles in this issue give insight and hope into the kind of world the CoBS, the authors and their work strive to make happen. And, taking in what we read in these articles, we are able to realise that much is happening. A feeling that momentum is gathering. And that progress is there.
Walk on with us and enjoy Global Voice magazine #17!
Best wishes and safe keeping,
Tom Gamble, Associate Director and Editor-in-Chief, Council on Business & Society
