Integrate values and learnings
Our focus for March on the planetary wellbeing platform was on values and learnings integration, and how to develop our own morals, values, and code of ethics in the direction of positive change. Irma Verhoeven, Programme and Partnership Development Manager at Earth Charter International Secretariat, shares in this podcast her insights and experiences on why education plays such an important role in human behaviour changes and empowerment. AnimalConcepts is a proud Earth Charter International Partner since 2020.

The importance of community of work
This month on the human-wellbeing platform we focused on community of work. Community is an essential aspect of any workplace as it creates a sense of belonging, fosters teamwork, and promotes a positive work environment. When employees feel that they are part of a community at work, they are more likely to feel supported by and trust their colleagues. This can be especially important during difficult times, such as when a project is going poorly or when an employee is struggling with personal issues. A supportive community can provide the encouragement and assistance needed to overcome these challenges. A sense of community at work can also encourage collaboration and teamwork. When employees feel that they are part of a team, they are more likely to work together to achieve common goals. This can lead to more effective problem-solving and innovation.
A strong community at work can also improve communication. When individuals feel comfortable and connected to their colleagues, they are more likely to share their ideas and opinions openly.
Overall, trust and a strong sense of community at work are critical components of building and maintaining strong, healthy organisations. Individuals and organisations can make a tangible and lasting impact on the world around them, and contribute to building a better future for all.
