Regenerative: forget sustainable, it isn’t working

Fellowship Event / Online

How can we start to shift our mindset around sustainability and what it means to be regenerative? It seems like our approach to tackling ecological problems is limited by the remnants of technology, and approaches, from the past century.

Do we need to give up on sustainability as a way of thinking, and think differently? Will a regenerative approach have a far better outcome and likelihood of success? Let’s start to shift our mindset, so that instead of thinking about how to make cars go further (for example), let’s start to imagine a world without cars.

Join the Augmented Society Network to discuss: 

  • How does a regenerative approach differ to a sustainable approach 
  • Why we need to think differently to succeed 
  • How to free ourselves of confining assumptions and mindsets 
  • Why we need to embrace seeing things differently
