Are you willing to create systems, organisations and lifestyles that harmonise with the natural world? To once and for all commit to the continuation of life and ensure that every ecosystem is able to carry life in the way they were designed to do.

In the words of Rob Hopkins, “What if the next 10 years were a revolution of the imagination?”

What are you prepared to give up in this pursuit? What commitments are you willing to make? What steals from our eco-systems and what supports it?

This virtual action lab will give you space to realign to the planetary resources available, that we can create and harness personal, organisational and planetary health. Here, we can assess both short and long-term goals, for ourselves and all generations to come.

You will develop your own 10 point action plan – informed by experts and leaders across multiple disciplines of sustainability and ethical futures. This is your pledge, your commitment to planetary harmony.

This is you making the change.

We are at a crossroads. The choice about the future we want is there and the choice is real. Time has run out for making decisions on Climate Action, and we have to act now. What can we do with the resources we have? How can we work to make ourselves more sustainable? Who do we need to be to coexist with our planet?

This climate action lab looks to answer all those questions. From the big picture to internal systems, we have talks that will inform and inspire.

He asks, “what if the way we respond to the crisis is part of the crisis?” He is passionate about the preposterous. considers his most sacred work to be learning how to be with his daughter and son, Alethea Aanya and Kyah Jayden – and their mother, his wife and “life-nectar”, Ijeoma. “To learn the importance of insignificance” is the way he frames a desire to reacquaint himself with a world that is irretrievably entangled, preposterously alive and completely partial.
