Hello everybody,

I would like to talk about the topic of climate change and what we can do to fight it. This is quite a central topic today, for all generations. And also for my generation, a middle aged white man, climate change represents one of the most important and crucial topics of the decade.

There is a lot of discussions on climate change going on right now. Greta Thumberg is travelling the world and speaking to leaders and heads of state about their responsibility, young generations are protesting in virtually any country to claim the right for their future. What fascinates me the most is what people are doing to fight climate change.

The argument of many people is that we are not doing enough to fight climate change. Yes, some people are doing more than others but they are too few or too far away from power to make a difference today. I would like to give you some examples of what people are doing.

On the one hand, there are people protesting. We all know the movement Friday’s for future. Young people are going to the streets rising their voices to ask politicians to do something. They argue that some companies and some decision makers in particular know exactly what priceless values they are sacrificing to continue making unimaginable amounts of money. They want to challenge those companies and those decision makers into real and bold climate action.

On the other hand, there are people that have started to change their habits in their daily-life in order to reduce their footprint on climate. They buy less pre-packaged products, make holiday in a near place, they avoid to take the plane, they buy second-hand cloths, instead of cheap products shipped to Europe from Asia.

I must admit that I agree more with the second group of people. I believe that responsibility lies only in hour hands. We should not pretend that others, the decision makers, change the rules of the game. It is our turn to radically change our habits. If we start to buy locally, to avoid the use of plastic, to take train instead of the plane, I am sure that this will put enough pressure on the companies and on decision makers to change the way they do business.

Before finishing my talk, however, I would like to point to another aspect of this story. Some scientists argue that climate change is not caused by humans, but that it is rather a natural phenomenon. Some politician, especially the Conservatives, uses this position to support their climate policies. Let me say, frankly, they are not really climate friendly.

Most interesting than that is the fact that there is a vast majority of population that it is going on with a business-as-usual attitude. They are aware of climate change. They are afraid of the consequences of climate change. But they are not protesting or changing their lifestyle at all. They still use plastic, buy SUV instead of small cars, and fly around the world with planes for holidays.

As you can see, there are many different positions around this topic. The only certain thing is that we need to take this topic very seriously.

Thank you very much.

Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to our session on the intersection of innovation and consumer behavior in, uh, the digital era, part of our advanced series in the Master of Business Administration at the Global Digital University.

I am Dr. Alexei Morozov, Professor of Marketing Strategy and Innovation, and, um, it is my pleasure to guide you through this journey. Over the course of this program, we aim to dissect the nuances of modern consumer behavior, explore the digital landscape's vast opportunities, and, uh, harness the power of innovation to meet evolving market demands.

Let's begin by addressing a fundamental question: What, um, propels a business forward in a marketplace as fluid and dynamic as the digital arena? The answer lies in understanding the psyche of the digital consumer and the innovation of customer-centric solutions.

This course is not just about understanding trends; it’s about, uh, anticipating them. As future leaders, you will learn to not just swim with the current of digital advancements but also to steer the ripples that shape new waves in consumer patterns. We will delve deep into data analytics, not merely to gather information but to interpret and project the narratives hidden within numbers.

The digital realm has transformed the concept of interaction. Where once businesses broadcasted messages to a passive audience, today's consumers engage in a dialogue with brands. This two-way communication street is the bedrock of contemporary marketing. It requires an intricate blend of technology and human touch—something we will, um, explore through real-world case studies and interactive projects.

Innovation in marketing no longer happens in silos. It is the result of a cross-disciplinary synergy that merges creativity with technology, psychology with data science, and market research with artificial intelligence. This program will encourage you to think like a marketer, a data scientist, a strategist, and an innovator all at once.

We will examine cases where companies have successfully leveraged digital tools to adapt to consumer behavior changes. Take, for example, the rise of personalized marketing. Brands like ‘EcoStyles’ have crafted individual customer experiences using big data, transforming the way we think about customer engagement and loyalty.

Moreover, we will not overlook the ethical implications of digital marketing. With power comes responsibility. Thus, we'll discuss the importance of maintaining consumer trust in an age where privacy concerns are paramount. How do we balance personalized marketing with respect for consumer privacy? This question will be a recurring theme throughout our discussions.

But let’s not forget, while we focus on the digital, the human element remains central to our study. Technology is a tool, a means to an end, not the end itself. The goal is to enrich human lives, to offer solutions that resonate on a personal level, to create brands that don’t just sell, but uplift, empower, and inspire.

This course will also prepare you for the inevitable challenges that come with the fast pace of digital innovation. Change is constant, and agility is crucial. Businesses that can pivot, adapt, and innovate in real-time will lead the charge into the future. We'll scrutinize the methodologies that allow businesses to remain flexible yet focused, innovative yet consistent.

As we move forward, we will tackle the concept of digital ecosystems and their impact on global commerce. Companies like ‘GreenTech’ are not only selling products; they are building communities, fostering engagement, and creating platforms where every transaction is an interaction within a larger digital ecosystem.

In conclusion, this program is about more than just imparting knowledge; it's about cultivating a mindset. The digital marketplace is an ocean of potential, and you are the navigators. With strategic thinking, innovative approaches, and ethical considerations, you will learn to chart courses that lead to success.

I am excited to embark on this journey with you. Together, we will challenge conventions, ignite creativity, and redefine the future of digital marketing. Let’s prepare to not just participate in the digital marketplace but to shape it. Thank you, and I look forward to our collaboration in the coming weeks.
