Forest Bathing for Designers

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.
