Event description
Does behaviour & accessibility impact engagement? How can you improve team cohesion? What role does storytelling play in behaviour change?

About this Event

We are keeping a close eye on all updates in relation to COVID-19. Our events until March 2021 are now online, and include the same opportunities as our physical events.

What are the similarities and overlaps between accessibility and sustainability, and why is accessibility is important for sustainability? How can business teams increase their collective impact and ability to deliver sustainability goals? How can we make learning sustainability more accessible, and what value does storytelling have on behaviour change?

The Future Economy Network (FEN) is excited to welcome Network members Kingfisher7, Dotjay and With Many Roots to answer these questions and more.

Expect interactive activities, valuable networking and live discussion alongside informative presentations.

To promote positive behaviour change, every ticket holder will be given the opportunity to bring someone along for free who would like to be more engaged in sustainability and does not often come to FEN events.*

*For member and non-member ticket holders only.

Jon Gibbins, Digital Accessibility and Sustainability Consultant, Dotjay Ltd

If we exclude people in our work, then we create products and services that are less sustainable. And as we look to the future, our idea of what it means to be inclusive and sustainable will shift. Around 1 in 5 people have a disability. We need to include them. We need their help.

Martin Preston, Founder of Kingfisher 7 Consulting

Martin Preston, Founder of Kingfisher 7 Consulting will be speaking about how internal organisational behaviour change can help organisations increase their impact and make sustainability more accessible.

Most organisations have latent potential hidden within their teams and approaches. This not only prevents businesses from maximising the resources at their disposal, but also hinders innovation and transformational growth. Through exploring internal approaches and mindsets this session will share how you can change your internal behaviour to drive a sustainable and accessible energy future.

Sophia Cheng, Founder of With Many Roots, Climate Collage UK Co-ordinator

Sophia’s been orbiting around making climate change more accessible for years now. She’s been experimenting with presentations and standup comedy but there’s no getting around the fact that climate science is hard. Since February she’s been delivering Climate Collage workshops in the UK to activists, communities and corporates. Played by more than 100 000 people worldwide they take the UN’s climate reports and translate them into an interactive workshop, building confidence with players then building in complexity. 

In Sophia’s segment we’ll get a taste of the Climate Collage and get curious about systems thinking. And have some fun too!
