TRUE INNOVATION HAPPENS WHEN WE CONNECT TO THE BEST DESIGNER OF ALL – MOTHER EARTH
TAP INTO NATURE’S INTELLIGENCE TO LEARN HOW WE CAN BUILD THE FUTURE ON MILLIONS OF YEARS OF EXPERTISE. THIS FRIDAY AFTERNOON FOREST BATH IS ALL ABOUT ATTUNING INNER AND OUTER NATURE WHILE LEARNING ABOUT THE INGENIOUS WAYS IN WHICH NATURE INNOVATES AND REGENERATES.
Join Julia Plevin, founder of Forest Bathing Club and author of The Healing Magic of Forest Bathing, and Leen Gorissen, experienced innovation biologist and sustainability transition expert for an experience that will transform how you move through the world. We will explore living systems thinking, bio-inspired innovation and regenerative design and development while weaving in nature exploration, experiential exercises, storytelling, mindfulness and knowledge sharing. The experience will conclude with tea, snacks, and council.
You will leave with a boost in mental energy, capacity and creativity and a reconnection to nature. You will also take away new inspiration on how to shift from degenerative to more regenerative innovation strategies. You will learn about companies that have already embarked upon this journey to do well by doing good and the new bio-inspired product and organizational designs they came up with. You will get to meet a community of interesting and passionate folks whilst getting a health boost from the forest.
Come join us to learn about design strategies and principles that have stood the test of time, the simple rules that govern the Wood Wide Web and how these spiral into resilience and innovation, how trees can improve 3D printing designs, how ant algorithms can improve manufacturing, how nature uses carbon as a building block and how as a general rule, nature’s designs upgrade the environment.
CO-CREATING A MANIFESTO FOR A NEW EMERGING REGENERATIVE ARCHITECTURE, September 18, Omved Gardens, London. There's a new emerging architecture lurking in the near future. This new architecture requires us to look inwards before we design outwards. As well as focusing on form and materials, wouldn’t it be good if architects and designers also focused on understanding the art and science of wellbeing and the future needs of humanity in a fast-evolving world? What if we invested more time to explore the architecture of community, organisations, and human relationships? What if we regularly immersed ourselves in nature as a source of inspiration for our work?
Four days on a veteran ship - undisturbed - with no wifi or cellular coverage 100 brilliant people - young and old - from all sectors and all continents will convene to discuss the future of life on Planet Earth. Laura Storm will represent Regenerators perspectives on regenerative societies.
The questions the expedition will address are:
What should our societies be like? How can wealth be more equally distributed? How does tech affect democracy and the distribution of power? How do we meet the blurring divisions between man and machine? What are the consequences of bioengineering? Should there be restrictions on AI? How can we prepare our children for the future instead of the past?
We are at a point in time where things are changing fast. New technologies bring the potential to create an amazing future for all, but we are also facing great risks. The Arctic Expedition is about opening eyes, deliberately choosing direction, and empowering the young. It’s about taking a stand on ethics and sustainability. Consciously choosing our way forward.
