The Future We Want: A Systems Approach to Growing Sustainable Business  Weekend of September 27-29 , 2013

$405.00 – $1,750.00 (based on accommodation type)

This workshop's start date has passed.

Workshop Details

Is “green” always more expensive? Does a financially healthy company have to exploit the environment? Does success at work have to mean an ecologically and emotionally unsustainable personal life? And how is the growing field of clean technology solving—or contributing to—all of these problems? How are personal journeys and systems thinking woven in to this process?
This workshop will feature examples from the front lines of corporate sustainability, including what has worked and what remains a work-in-progress, while inviting participants to share their own experiences and brainstorm ideas for a sustainable future. Drawing upon the fields of systems thinking, organizational learning, and ecology, we will seek to come up with a better understanding of what sustainability could look like in the business sector and in our personal lives.
The workshop is geared toward individuals who are interested in learning more about sustainability and business innovation as well as exploring their own ideas with others. We will use tools and examples from the innovation of Silicon Valley, the energy efficiency and business acumen of Rocky Mountain Institute, and the organizational learning and systems-thinking work of Peter Senge and Dana Meadows.


We offer a rich and varied integral learning environment devoted to cultivating deep change in self and society.
