personality

The talented Japanese singer Miou is a humanist who wants to heal people’s hearts and promote world peace through her music. Her uniqueness and originality were displayed before the SIGEF 2016 audience as a performer during the Horyou Foundation Dinner in Marrakesh, as well as a panelist discussing the power of art in promoting positive change in our society. In the interview below, Miou talks about her personal experiences, plans and dreams for the future.

1. Tell  us about your relationship with music: have you always wanted to become a singer?

I have always loved music. I have played piano for 20 years and alto horn and trumpet in the school brass band club and took singing lessons. But it was always a hobby to me and I never dreamt of becoming a professional musician. I wanted to set up a band but I didn’t know what to do. So I asked my friends who had a band and they suggested to me to search for my band members on the internet. There was a website for that. So I did it and I met one person, listened to his songs and we decided to make a band together. His music was fusion Japanese, very unique, and reminded me of my experience as an international beauty pageant. I sang a Japanese traditional song as a national talent at the International pageant in Malaysia (Miss Tourism Queen of the Year International). All the contestants were from different nationalities. But even if they didn’t understand the language, they loved the sound so much and the reaction was so good. And I felt “I am Japanese”. National tradition made me feel unique and original on the international stage. Since then, I have been trying to fuse traditional Japanese sound and modern western beat together, to create a “East meets West” crossover.

2.   What does music represent for you?

I was Miss Japan for various international beauty pageants and had a chance to represent my country and introduce Japanese culture to the world. Besides music, I studied education and medicine (nursery). I loved teaching and taking care of people in need. I have always liked to communicate with people. So I think my music is reflecting my personal experience and is a tool to convey my messages and communicate with people. I can teach and educate through music, I can heal people’s hearts through music as well. Music, culture and art have a strong power to convey messages and to change the world.

3.   What would you like to achieve as a singer?

I would like to heal people’s hearts through my music. I want to convey positive messages and promote world peace. Love ourselves, love our country, love our neighbours, love this planet, love our lives. The most important message is ”Love”. I like travelling as well and I want to sing around the world. Part of this dream came true in 2009, when I sang at the UNESCO’s world heritage site, the Basilica of Santa Croce in Florence, Italy. I would like to do it more often!

4.   You made a performance during the SIGEF 2016 in Marrakesh – how do you evaluate this experience?

It was a great experience for me. As a Japanese artist, I have always cared about our environment. I believe everything is alive on Earth and we have to respect life, this planet is our mother and our home. If we hurt our planet, it is going to be difficult for us to live. If we take more care of this planet, it will be a better place for us to live in. Everything we do to the earth will come back to us. Some of my songs are also reflecting my respect and feelings towards nature, and messages to rethink about the environment and take an action to protect our mother land and home. So coming to Morocco to SIGEF was a very good experience for me as I felt I shared the same feelings and messages. I was inspired by others and I want to be the one to inspire others as well. I hope SIGEF continues to bring messages of respect of nature and world peace for more years to come.

5. What does social innovation mean to you? Do you have any cause you identify yourself with?

The social innovation and technology we have been experiencing is a great thing. This new evolution is allowing more people to share their views and bring their voices and feelings to the world. This is helping everyone, no matter who they are or where they are from. It is also helping people like me, artists in general, as we now have more ways to reach out to our audience globally. As for me, I aim to bring Japan to the world with my music, and also share a message of harmony with the nature.

6. Do you have a project for 2017 that you would like to share with our community?

I am set to perform at Etna Comics 2017 in Sicily. When it comes to the Japanese culture, animes and comics are very popular and well known worldwide. However, we have not only pop culture, but also many other traditional and chic culture as well. I want to present aspects of Japanese traditional culture such as “KIREI(beautiful)” or “SHIBUI(chic)” “KAKKOII(cool)” styles at pop culture festivals as well. And I’m currently planning to write a song for an international movie about Japan.

7.   Horyou’s tagline is dream, inspire and act. What do these words mean to you?

I think ACT is very important to make our dreams come true. Pursuing our dreams would INSPIRE others to take an action. We can always DREAM how we want to be. If we ACT, DREAM will become reality, our dreams will INSPIRE others to DREAM and ACT. Everything starts from dreaming, taking one action. We can inspire others to dream and act! Nothing is impossible.

 Dr Cara Auguestenborg speaking at Ted X
Dr Cara Augustenborg speaking at Ted X.

Dr. Cara Augustenborg is an environmental scientist and climate lecturer at UCD and Trinity College. As somebody who dedicates every day to research and educating people on a topic that is changing our world, she is a perfect example of an Horyou Personality doing positive, impactful work.

1) Horyou is a platform to highlight the people and projects that are making a positive impact on our world. Tell us about your work and how it is contributing to social good? 

I’ve studied environmental science for over a decade now and the overwhelming evidence on the impacts of climate change has led me to the conclusion that climate change is the greatest challenge of our time. Vested interests have prevented the full significance of climate change from reaching the general public because it’s in their economic interest not to address climate change. My own work to date has been focused on countering those vested interests by presenting climate change impacts and solutions in a simple, accessible, and objective manner. It can be really depressing talking about the endless impacts of climate change, but understanding the solutions to climate change requires knowledge in so many fields, from science and engineering to psychology, politics, law, and economics. I draw on all those disciplines in my work to try to emphasize that the things we need to do to slowdown climate change are also things that would improve our society, economy, health, and quality of life anyway.  

2) Horyou was proud to be a part of COP 21 this year. Tell us your thoughts on what was agreed and the next steps for action?

COP21 was a historic occasion and it was a thrill to be present the moment 195 countries agreed to finally address climate change. However, the ambition of the Paris Climate Agreement is detached from the science of global warming. While the Agreement would have been a resounding success 15 years ago, we are running out of time to solve an impending climate crisis and it’s not clear if the Paris Climate Agreement has enough substance or fast enough timelines to do what really needs to be done, which is essentially to move to a fossil-fuel free global society in the next three decades. The only way to ensure success is for people and NGOs to push their governments to act on the level of ambition set forth in the Paris Climate Agreement. Right now, every country needs to ramp up their level of action from the intended nationally determined contributions they set-forth before COP21 or we simply won’t achieve the target of keeping the Earth’s average warming from pre-industrial temperatures below the 1.5C limit established in the Paris Climate Agreement. 

3) Many industries are now realizing that being environmentally conscious is good business and will actually serve them and their profits in the long run. What are your views on this? 

Dr Cara Augustenborg
Dr. Cara Augustenborg, environmental scientist and climate lecturer at UCD and Trinity College.
It is great to see some industries and businesses looking at their contribution to long-term societal and environmental sustainability. I think the advances that have been made on putting a financial value on nature (natural capital) and moving toward a circular or green economy, where the waste from one industry becomes the fuel for another, are really helping businesses to incorporate true sustainability into their business models. We still need to see businesses and governments divesting from fossil-fuel based practices and incentivising businesses that are supporting the low-carbon transition. The divestment movement has been phenomenally successful in only a few years at moving assets away from fossil fuels, but our governments are still subsidizing fossil fuel extraction and exploration which completely defeats the ambition of the Paris Climate Agreement.



4) You are a lecturer at University College Dublin and Trinity College Dublin so you are surrounded by “millennials.” How would you sum up the attitude of today’s students around climate change/sustainable living? 

Teaching university students about climate change and environment is definitely the element of my work that keeps me motivated. They are so open to new ideas and positive about their ability to influence change. The millennials do not see climate change as something that will impact future, distant generations but as a crisis of their own generation and one that will impact their children even more significantly. In Ireland, we’re already seeing the climate change in a world that is only 1 degree Celsius warmer than the pre-industrial baseline. We’re seeing stronger storms, more frequent floods, and we’re looking at potential sea level rise of 1 meter over this century, which will displace at least 45,000 homes and businesses along our coasts. Ireland is considered to be one of the less-impacted countries with respect to climate change, so we also anticipate it will become a safe-haven for climate refugees, dramatically altering our population density and rural environment. The millennials will witness many of these changes in their lifetime, so they feel a greater sense of urgency to address the problem than the generations before them. As lecturers, I think we have a real obligation to educate them about the challenges they’re facing to improve their odds of being able to adapt and alter how they plan to prepare for climate-related risks. 

5) Horyou supports people acting on their dreams through the work that you do. What are your ultimate goals or ambitions? 

My goal is simple. All I really want is to leave this planet a little better than the way I found it. I live by Alice Walker’s words: “Activism is the rent I pay for living on the planet.” I started my academic career in water research because I thought clean fresh water resources were the greatest global challenge facing us today, but as the scientific evidence began to mount up I soon realized that climate change was an even greater challenge and would create disruptions in our water cycle that would lead to even greater global instability. So, if I’m going to leave this world a little better than I found it, I feel I have to do whatever I can to help solve climate change. Sometimes that feels like an impossible task because solving climate change requires an understanding of so many disciplines, but ‘many hands make light work’ so I contribute in whatever small ways I can, be it through teaching, writing, research, or activism. Together with my colleagues in the academic and NGO sectors, I think we’ve made good progress in advancing understanding of climate change in Ireland, but we still have a long way to go and there’s no end to the battles we face to create real action on climate. I know no one can solve climate change on their own, so I just feel privileged to get to help out in whatever way I can and I’m very fortunate to be surrounded by colleagues who are a joy to work with and inspire me to keep going.

Aside from educating the next generation of hopeful change makers in the world Cara blogs at caraaugustenborg.com and will soon launch “The Verdant Yank,” giving her Irish American perspective on Ireland’s environmental issues. Dr. Augustenborg’s main aim is to make environmental issues part of the national conversation. She wants to help people to understand them in the context of the economic and social fabric of societies at this critical time. We are proud to have featured Dr. Augustenborg on the Horyou blog.

Reso is a visual artist from France who loves to show the world his pictures of Provençal nature. He chooses to highlight and promote the creativity as first principle and push artistic creation and human realization. One little picture every day gives him pleasure and he has been doing this for the past 10 years.

Small details of nature - this is what Reso's photographies are about
Small details of nature – this is what Reso’s photographies are about

1. Who is Reso?

Reso is not my true name but names are not so important. Overall I am a “non lucrative being” who tries to live as a “not for profit entity”. I am a young French guy born in 1959 in Paris. My father was Black and my mummy is White; So I am « Black & White », like the old B&W photos; it’s my only common point with Photography.

2. What sort of work do you specialize in?

Work is really not the center of my life. However, creativity stays in the middle of my way and the way I took was to publish one daily photo, one photo about the Provençal nature around me. So each day I send one biological medallion drawing a sweet harmonic suite of little mandala. I consider them more as pictures than photography. Small fragments of life … precious pieces of our self-overviews from the board of « The Arch of Zoé », tiny signs, creation’s relics shared on the net. So I specialize in the best manner to do and the way to follow in my daily usage of photography. It is more a question of method, program, contract, pledge. The matter of my use are health, freedom and pleasure and the satisfaction I get to speak with you is very important too!

3. Did you go to school to study photography?

No I did not. I am self-taught. On my own I practice freedom, promenade, meditation, contemplation. So I got all my basic photographic knowledge all along my “Arch of Zoé” practical experience.

4. How long have you been a photographer?

I am making photos but I don’t speak about me as a photographer! I have only started to shoot and to launch my trip on the “Arch of Zoé”. I started this virtual and symbolic journey in 2006, so I make and I post one little picture each day … for 10 years now. Only for the pleasure … and for the big benefits of the creativity.

Provence nature is his main inspiration

5. How would you describe your style?

I really don’t know. With a reflex… “automatic” elementary shoots and direct simple, like data collecting. The result of a daily promenade I frame and I shoot only what I see. Where I am I usually I shoot things which are looking at me. It depends on the level of my natural contemplation and the more the time is going …the more it is good! Maybe my style is only in the fact to use round caches to frame and to present the natural objects through open small portholes of the “Arch of Zoé”.

6. What gives you ideas and inspires you to create such great images?

I was just thinking about this big part of our human population which is crossing their lives without any contact with her own nature. So I try to claim my opportunity to live in nature and to share this privilege in this little daily drop-off from the “Arch of Zoé”. I am not a photographer. I feel myself more like a performer. To make photos is more important than the photos themselves.

Each day, Reso posts a picture of what he calls Arch of Zoe

7. You are on Horyou, the social network for social good. What does to Dream, Act and Inspire mean to you?

Yes, I am on HORYOU… and I am happy to be there. For me HORYOU is an open door on the human hopes. I am happy to be welcomed by the Horyou members and to serve them each day a fragment of Provençal nature seen and picked from the open portholes of the “Arch of Zoé.

Escritor, professor e conferencista, o paulistano Roberto Otsu estuda e ensina I Ching e Taoísmo há mais de 40 anos. Inspirado por grandes nomes da filosofia como Lin Yutang e por um dos pais da psiquiatria, Carl Jung, Otsu se dedica hoje a conhecer e compartilhar conhecimentos sobre o desenvolvimento interior do ser humano. Autor dos livros “A Sabedoria da Natureza” e “O Caminho Sábio”, ele também traduziu o clássico milenar da literatura chinesa “Tao-Te-Ching” e hoje se dedica ao lançamento de seu terceiro livro, que fará reflexões sobre os textos do I Ching. Na seguinte conversa com o Horyou Blog, Roberto Otsu fala sobre sua visão de mundo, filosofia e sobre a sua grande inspiração: a natureza.

1. Qual é a sua história com a filosofia chinesa?

Todos sabemos que a ideologia predominante desta vida está relacionada ao sucesso, ao ser um “vencedor”. Na prática, isso significa atingir a fama, obtenção de lucros exorbitantes, a riqueza, o poder, estar na lista dos top ten do que quer que seja. E, para isso, as pessoas não medem esforços e recursos. Sacrificam sua própria vida, sua saúde, a vida familiar, emocional, afetiva, social, a vida dos outros, os recursos naturais. Nos piores casos, são capazes de passar por cima da dignidade, dos princípios e dos valores para chegar lá, como infelizmente se vê todos os dias nos noticiários. Minha intenção é apresentar uma visão de mundo e um modo de vida que sirva de contraponto ao que existe. Não com o objetivo de atacar violentamente e destruir o pensamento dominante, mas de levantar questões que permitam às pessoas conhecer e agregar outra forma de pensar, ver, sentir e viver a realidade. Um dos caminhos para isso pode ser encontrado na filosofia clássica oriental, mais especificamente no Taoísmo, que é minha área de estudo e trabalho. A partir de 1997, comecei a receber muitos convites para dar palestras e cursos sobre Taoísmo e I Ching e desde então ministro aulas sobre os dois temas em cursos de pós-graduação e em diversos espaços culturais, grupos de estudos e outras instituições. Em 2006, publiquei o livro “A Sabedoria da Natureza”, e em 2008, publiquei “O Caminho Sábio”, uma tradução do “Tao-Te-Ching”, de Lao-Tsé, um clássico milenar da literatura e da sabedoria chinesa.

2. Quais são os seus projetos para 2016?

Este ano, tenho evitado me comprometer com projetos e atividades para poder me concentrar na redação do meu terceiro livro. São reflexões sobre os textos do I Ching para que as pessoas possam encontrar conteúdos e inspirações para intuir com mais profundidade o que este antiquíssimo livro de sabedoria e de orientação pessoal quer nos transmitir. Ele está sendo escrito em linguagem bem acessível e sempre ilustrado com exemplos simples, que correspondem à realidade do homem contemporâneo. É um texto complementar das versões do I Ching de Richard Wilhelm e de Alfred Huang, para que a pessoa possa compreender os aforismos, as metáforas e o simbolismo com mais facilidade.

3. A filosofia do Horyou é “Sonh​ar​, inspirar​ e agir”. ​Conte-nos de​ onde sua inspiração veio e o que fez você tomar uma atitude?

A inspiração é a mesma desde sempre. É a mesma de todos os pensadores, sábios, poetas, artistas, filósofos, escritores, e de todas as pessoas comuns, que sejam sensíveis e sensatas: a Natureza. Qualquer pessoa pode ter esta inspiração, desde o índio, o homem do campo, o barqueiro, o surfista, o pescador, a cozinheira, o astrônomo, o veterinário, o arquiteto. É só uma questão de contemplar a Natureza, não importa se a pessoa trabalha com coisas naturais ou burocráticas, na indústria, no comércio ou em serviços. Quando observamos como a Natureza é perfeita, como tudo nela é interconectado e como tudo funciona de modo harmônico, aí, sim, compreendemos o que é sabedoria. Aí, entendemos o que é fluxo, mutação, equilíbrio, ciclo, impermanência, suficiência, unicidade, interdependência, economia de energia, ordem natural, não-interferência, despojamento, integração dos opostos, a importância da flexibilidade, etc. Se estas coisas valem para a Natureza, então também valem para o ser humano, afinal de contas nós fazemos parte da Natureza. O que me faz atuar na minha área é a vontade de promover o equilíbrio e a harmonia interior das pessoas, resgatando-lhes a consciência de seu lugar na Natureza e no Universo. Acredito que somente uma pessoa em harmonia e em equilíbrio consigo mesmo pode promover a verdadeira paz, a justiça, o equilíbrio social, a harmonia diante da diversidade, a tolerância, a inclusão, a sustentabilidade.

4. Horyou apoia​ as pessoas agindo em seus sonhos, qual é o seu objetivo final? 

Permita-me “viajar” um pouco. Foi dito acima que “Sonhar, inspirar e agir” é um dos conceitos sobre o qual Horyou atua. É interessante notar que “sonhar” tem o mesmo sentido da palavra “aspirar”. Sonhar algo ou aspirar algo é a mesma coisa. E, no fundo, fisicamente, “aspirar” é o mesmo movimento de “inspirar”, isto é, de colocar o ar para dentro dos pulmões, para dentro do corpo. O ar é invisível, portanto, inspirar é colocar o invisível para dentro de si. “Spir” em latim significa “vento”, “sopro” e é a raiz da palavra “inspirar” e também da palavra “espírito”. Significa que o espírito é o sopro divino (invisível) que penetra o ser humano, é o que inspira e dá vida à pessoa. Respondendo à pergunta, meu objetivo final é justamente levar inspiração para as pessoas. É levar o conceito de algo maior, transcendente (como a Natureza) para dentro delas. É permitir que as pessoas tenham dentro de si o mesmo espírito de equilíbrio e harmonia da Natureza.

5. Você pode compartilhar uma mensagem com a comunidade Horyou? 

Acredito que enquanto houver pelo menos uma pessoa no mundo que deseja o bem, a humanidade ainda terá esperança. Mesmo que essa pessoa seja você. Mesmo que esta pessoa seja eu. Felizmente existe muito mais pessoas do que você e eu que desejam o bem. Existem dezenas, centenas, milhares, milhões de pessoas em toda a Terra que buscam o melhor para a humanidade, para o planeta. A existência de uma plataforma como a Horyou só faz aumentar a certeza de que esperança de um mundo melhor não é um mero sonho. É um sonho a caminho da transformação. Fazer parte de uma comunidade como esta, é unir forças e pavimentar o caminho para o bem social. Assim, unidos no mesmo objetivo, podemos fazer coro com um outro grande inspirador que cantava: “You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. I hope someday you’ll join us, and the world will be as one”.

André Trigueiro
André Trigueiro

Jornalista, professor, autor de livros sobre sustentabilidade e humanismo e ativista do meio ambiente, André Trigueiro é um profissional dedicado às causas em que acredita. No Brasil, André é conhecido como repórter e âncora da TV Globo e da GloboNews, mas seu trabalho e seu engajamento vão muito além – além da TV, ele atua como comentarista de rádio e também se dedica às carreiras acadêmica e editorial. André conversou com o Horyou blog sobre sua carreira, visão de mundo e sobre bem social.

1) Você é um profissional multifacetado: jornalista, escritor, editor, professor. Como você concilia todas essas atividades?

Eu estou vivo e em condições de produzir. Vou caminhando sem parar para pensar em coisas que já foram consolidadas ou consumadas. Eu acho que nós sempre temos que olhar para frente e verificar o que ainda não foi feito, o que precisa ser feito de uma maneira mais inteligente e efetiva.

2) Quais são suas inspirações para criar e idealizar seus projetos e sua trajetória como ser humano?

Eu acredito que sou como todas as pessoas. Nós temos que aproveitar nosso tempo, energia e nossas condições para trabalhar e tentar fazer nossa parte em favor de um mundo melhor e mais justo.

André é conhecido como repórter e apresentador de TV

3) Como você começou a traçar sua trajetória pessoal e profissional?

Eu não sei dizer de onde veio, principalmente porque eu sou reencarnacionista, então é difícil mapear a origem. Certamente é uma soma de influências das mais diversas fontes que determinam, digamos, uma cosmovisão, uma percepção do mundo, uma escala de valores éticos e morais à maior pré-disposição para fazer as ações. Nós somos uma soma de influências: a sociologia explica bem como se resolve esse fenômeno da absorção, de uma carga monumental de informações que, desde a infância, agente se apodera, recicla, elabora e devolve.

4) Sua história de vida e projeto transmitem uma boa energia e a vontade de construir um mundo melhor. Você tem positividade e faz o bem social. Essa é a sua mensagem para o mundo?

Isso combina com minha cosmovisão. Para mim é importante ter uma postura, sempre que possível, onde a sensibilidade para o coletivo esteja presente.

5) Qual a sua mensagem para a plataforma Horyou sobre inspirações, ações e positividade?

Nós precisamos ter a consciência de que a vida não é uma casualidade. Há um sentido inteligente da existência e todos precisam descobri-lo, o quanto antes, para empregar o tempo e a energia dentro de uma perspectiva de aprendizado e de uso inteligente dos recursos que estão a nossas mãos em favor do coletivo, do planeta. Devemos procurar promover a qualidade de vida, o respeito enquanto espécie no topo da cadeia evolutiva com os demais seres da criação e, de alguma forma, aprender que esse de fato é o caminho mais nobre e também o emprego mais ético do uso do tempo e da energia que dispomos para realizar os trabalhos que achamos mais importantes.
