A recent report has shown that in addition to conflict, climate change is contributing to food insecurity across some parts of the continent: ''224 million people are now reportedly under-nourished on the continent, an increase of over 20 million in recent years. The reasons for this are complicated but related to the increasing pressures of extreme weather events. Rising temperatures and a greater prevalence of droughts across the continent has led to repeated crop failures.'' Widely read and widely shared, this topic is not trending in Africa.

Africa's environment is under serious threat, and along with it the very livelihoods of it's people. The Guardian report on the cocoa industry in Ivory Coast highlighted how the country's rainforest cover is being destroyed at a staggering rate- going from covering 25% of the country to just a mere 4% in just two decades.

As the UK government moves into a key phase of work on Brexit, ESCP Europe's London Campus has commenced its year long sponsorship of the high impact Brexit Forum linking member organisations of the French Chamber of Commerce in Great Britain.

Campus Dean, Professor Simon Mercado remarks: "through this established mechanism for member engagement, the Chamber is providing our sectors and organisations with great insight and an environment through which we can share intelligence and discuss collective action on this major development.  It is absolutely fitting that ESCP Europe, which has had a strong voice on Brexit, associates itself as sponsor with this key CCFGB Forum".

When I finally had the chance I joined my ESCP Europe peer and friend Oz to see whether I could contribute in any form or shape to his health tech idea in Silicon Valley. It took me to many inspiring and impressive people, to Stanford lectures (deja vu) and to many long winded discussions around health, innovations, VC vs angel funding, the world, the election, the chance of doing good, Steve Jobs favourite restaurant and what makes for a great business model.

What do entrepreneurs need for businesses success worldwide?

Here are some observations:

''In addition to meeting the immediate environmental challenges that we face, we also need to focus more acutely on the potential economic and societal risks that may arise as transition to a low-carbon and environmentally secure world accelerates,'' 2018 WEF Global Risks Report.

The fossil fuel era is coming to an end. Renewable energy makes business sense and investors are noticing. At the end of 2017, a number of leading international banks publicly announced their intentions to divest from coal. Some of these big names included ING, The World Bank and Axa. And earlier this week Lloyd's Bank of London joined them announcing they would begin '' excluding coal from its investment strategy from 1 April.''

Dr Ben Voyer, consumer psychologist and marketing professor at ESCP Europe Business School, says Burberry needs to reinvent itself again to appeal to the new Chinese consumer.
Dr Ben Voyer discussed a report by Which? showing how manufacturers are 'shrinking' products, instead of increasing their prices. Dr Voyer explained the psychological mechanisms which make consumers less susceptible to notice the implicit price increase. He highlighted the importance of consumer education to help consumers resist being manipulated.
