How can you be a sustainable leader without sustaining your own health and energy?
Personal health and sustainability of our mind, body, and spirit are integral to being a sustainability leader.
This presentation is not about recycling, energy efficiency, and biking to work—though all important. It introduces biomimicry and teaches a few of nature’s secrets to truly being a sustainable leader—for oneself and for the world.
Biomimicry—a practice of discovering and listening to nature’s time-tested patterns and strategies—provides a framework to learn how to thrive in the midst of dynamic change and have a positive impact in our world.
How does nature maintain energy in the face of constant change? How does nature adapt to conditions outside of its control? How does nature invest in strategies with the highest impact given an organism or ecosystem’s various needs? These are a few questions nature’s wisdom can answer in our quest for sustainable leadership.
