Event Details

Active Hope: Business Sustainability

Find ways to actively engage in making a better future while enhancing your competitiveness.

Progressive companies are driving sustainability into the core of their operations, recognising that business as usual will no longer be possible in a world facing the multiple challenges of climate change, resource scarcity, poverty and ecosystem collapse.

But how can companies positively engage with the sustainability agenda when there is so much bad news about the environment and many of the solutions have not yet reached scale?

Leading sustainability consultants Joanna Macy and Chris Johnstone will improve your understanding of the root causes of, and best responses to, today’s ethical issues, helping you learn to confront difficult realities head on, set achievable goals, and access support resources to ensure your company retains its edge in the marketplace.

Attendees will also receive a free copy of Macy and Johnstone’s Naomi Klein-endorsed business philosophy manual Active Hope. Incorporating ecology, positive psychology, systems theory and resilience coaching, this inspiring workshop will change your thinking and make sustainability as central to your operation as making a profit.
