Reading this analytical, reflecting article “The demise of the nation state“, written by Rana Dasgupta and published in The Guardian on April 5th 2018, can be helpful in understanding the broader context of various earthly concerns, including anthropogenic climate change and its undeniable fact of being a global problem with a lack of respect for any inter/national borders.
Hence, every action taken by any nation around the world regardless of its geographical size or amount of population plays a crucial role in creating a healthier and more sustainable future. Countries that invest heavily in sustainable development, including renewable and environmentally friendly energy sources, are now pioneers and role models for less environmentally conscious and unsustainable states.

How this all happened (the production process of the apple photo series):
– I biked 35 km to find this wild apple tree
– I took photos of the apple tree
– I picked the apples
– I biked back home (included in the 35 km)
– I prepared the apples from cutting them to smashing them
– I took some more photos
– I used an app to edit the photos on my smartphone
– I shared the edited photos on Instagram
– I shared the edited photos from Instagram to Facebook
Who helped me?
1. Our beloved nature produced the apples
2. The bike I own (produced by Helkama) allowed for me to bike to the apple tree
3. The camera I used allowed for me to take the photos
4. The mobile app allowed for me to edit the photos
5. Instagram allowed for me to upload the edited photos + share them to Facebook
6. Facebook allowed Instagram to post on my behalf from my Instagram account to my personal Facebook profile.
7. My personal FB profile allowed me to share this post further.
Never underestimate creativity, hard work or doing things on your own. But please never forget that everything you achieve and do always involves our environment and other people around us.
I could not have created this single post without a) the environment/nature b) the apple tree c) various social media apps/platforms that allow for me to share this with you.
Always appreciate what you are given. Do not take people or things for granted.

Communication is a challenging chapter for most people, including myself. When it comes to modern technologies and digital innovations, communication becomes even more of a challenge. Today, we have more digital tools than ever to communicate and to share our messages and visions to the world. Communication in the digital world has made a democratic breakthrough to everyone who has access to the Internet with its many different communication and digital platforms.
What makes communication so challenging?
This is a question that could, in itself, be discussed separately for hours, even days. In all simplicity, communication is always a challenge because it involves a number of different aspects to consider carefully, starting with the fact that the one who wants to communicate a certain message has to make sure that message is being a) received b) understood by the target audience.
Since us human beings tend to see things from our personal perspective and be more or less poor listeners, how can we guarantee that other people even want to hear what we are communicating? The perhaps biggest mistakes in any kind of communication are our own attitudes, beliefs, judgments and possible prejudices: to become better communicators, we have to let go of these and stop thinking that other people would be similar to ourselves. People generally share many common beliefs, but are also different kinds of communicators depending upon a number of factors, such as background, culture, personality, level of education, language skills, just to name a few.
A simple way to become a better communicator is to become interested in people, cultures, languages and different styles and ways of communication. Being open to continuous learning and development is of course a must. A huge plus is to actually know how to LISTEN to people.
Someone on Twitter today asked me if I have a factory because of the amount of Tweets (+1,2 million) that I have posted by today, thanks to my own activity and modern technology. I have been active on Twitter since 2011, with currently four Twitter accounts that I use to communicate my messages to the world: @annemariayritys, @aroundomedia, @gccthinkacttank and @leadingwpassion.
Many of you may not believe the fact that I spent years of work on social media to build global networks to spread important messages of e.g. climate change, to almost every country on this planet.
My Tweets have been viewed more than ONE BILLION times per today.
The responsibility involved in leadership communication is immense. I have always tried to speak up about important things fearlessly, at the same time keeping in mind and trying to respect people from different countries and cultures. This has not been an easy road for me, but I have learned a lot.
