I finally got to meet up with Phil Zimbardo and Zeno Franco (and briefly Dennis Pamlin) in San Francisco on Thursday. We had a great conversation about heroism at Phil’s house after I dodged the tourists clamouring around Lombard Street.
There was a great deal of discussion on global heroes before I got there. These are the people in power who need to take risks (mostly professional) to move the governments and populations of the world towards environmental responsibility.
After Dennis left we talked about the Hero Workshop and everyday heroism. Zeno and Phil are both keen for my programs to become a curriculum, as am I. They’ve pledged support in any way they can which is great news for my energy levels and the program.
I’ll be writing much more about specific points of the conversation this week.
