You’ve seen the IPCC report. You’ve seen the wildfires and floods. You know some big changes are needed. And that every organisation on the planet should have these changes as a top priority. But ‘business as usual’ has powerful inertia.
So how do we bridge the gap between how we’re working now and what is really needed in the world? And is it possible to do that with joy, engagement, and excitement?
You dove into the essentials (check out this course if you haven’t yet) and now you want to start working on a tangible project to have nature’s principles inspire your organisation to become a real force for good. In ecological and social terms, you are no longer happy to have your organisation aim for being ‘less bad’. You actually want to engage your colleagues to help shape how your organisation supports life on the planet to thrive. We’ve got you covered.
In this 5-week, project-based course, we help you to step into the practice of Thrivability, and apply nature’s principles and proven approaches to every part of your project. Weekly workshops focus on embedding key questions, behaviours, and activities of Thrivability into your unique organisational context and project brief.
