While we recognize the individual’s ability to change mindset and outcome, we equally recognize the fact that people are influenced by environment, which either supports or holds back the individual. Some individuals also experience a different way of understanding and relating to the world around them.
In MatKon, having an inclusive view on people is a completely integrated part of the environmental efforts our business is based on, since it’s hard for us to imagine a divided community working together efficiently, in a more sustainable direction.
We know that diversity in a group creates innovation and out-of-the-normal thinking – which is what the world needs, urgently. We need to change the status quo of the underlying mechanism that perpetuates human inability to relate to each other and the outside world, in less harmful and destructive ways.
