Building cultural diversity with potlu
ck dinners, sourcing sustainable raw materials for cars, developing a hybrid electric aircraft engine and Tesla's 100MW battery in South Australia

There's a growing 'trickle up' effect! At the grassroots level the trend of potluck dinners is building culturally diverse communities

as an antidote to white nationalism. Community pressure (and economics) are also shifting business and government at the top end, with some of the world's biggest global carmakers, including BMW, Ford and Toyota, teaming up to launch a project to address the sustainability issues in the sourcing of raw materials;  three of the top aviation engineering firms in the world — Airbus, Siemens, and Rolls-Royce — now collaborating on the development of a hybrid electric aircraft engine; and South Australia turning on Tesla's 100MW battery - causing it to lead the world in dispatchable renewable energy, delivered to homes and businesses 24/7.
