Sustainability professionals: More progress by working with nature
May 11 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pmFree
Real progress on sustainability, climate and biodiversity in your organisation requires engagement, commitment and innovation – from you and across the organisation.
Strong scientific evidence and real life experience shows that the more people feel part of nature, the more likely they are to support sustainability initiatives, to take positive action, and to come up with creative ways forward.
In this practical, hands-on, workshop you will:
Understand the potential for “nature connectedness” (feeling part of nature) to support your organisation’s sustainability agenda.
Discover the practical steps you can take to strengthen nature connectedness among your team and your colleagues.
Identify opportunities to help staff connect with nature and to embed nature connection in your organisation’s places, practices and culture.
The workshop is ideally suited to directors and managers leading their organisation’s sustainability, climate and biodiversity agendas.
Participants are invited to offer their organisations as case studies where the workshop leaders will help you identify opportunities to accelerate the organisations’ sustainability journey by working with nature connection.
Osbert Lancaster, director of Realise Earth, is a skilled facilitator, trainer and consultant in leadership for sustainability with 20+ years experience of supporting leaders and organisations develop and deliver sustainability strategies and initiatives. He works with nature connectedness to develop the skills and capacity of directors and managers to accelerate their organisation’s sustainability journey.
Dr Carly Butler is a researcher at the Nature Connectedness Research Group at the University of Derby – the first of its kind to focus on this area. She studies the factors and practices that improve human-nature relationships, and supports organisations and practitioners who help connect people with the more than human world.
