Discover how scientific principles of biology and the evolution of living systems inform the operation of successful businesses.

 

This conference will give participants:

  • Insights to discover how specific principles of living systems can help adapt their businesses to behave more like relationally interwoven mature living systems.
  • An appreciation on how to face current business challenges in more sustainable ways.    
  • The opportunity to analyze their particular businesses? strengths and weaknesses in the face of today’s climate.

 

Scientific concepts, especially the fundamental assumptions of globalised western science, deeply influence economics, and therefore the human future.

 

Dr. Elisabet Sahtouris is a world leader in understanding and explaining how the scientific principles of biology and the evolution of living systems can inform the operation of successful businesses as we face an increasing number of global changes.

 

While initial interpretations of evolution biology focussed on Darwinian conflict, competition and survival of the fittest, that model, turns out to represent only the youthful phase in the evolution of species; a phase that reaches its limits and leads to extinction or the transformation of living systems into mature economies, in which, collaboration and cooperation are the key to energy-efficient and sustainable relationships, necessary to, complex, healthy interconnected networks. 

 

As humans, we developed mature cooperative economies at the tribal level, but then reverted to an immature economic mode to create large scale empires, the most recent version of which is our current global banking and business system.

 

Dr. Sahtouris will show why reaching limits in energy, resource exploitation, population, dwindling surpluses and exponentially rising debt, which have brought on crises from global heating to financial collapse, force us to reconsider business as usual, recognize it as utterly unsustainable and rebuild our businesses on community and global relationships.
 
This conference will give participants:

  • An understanding of how the economy must change in the face of reaching these exponential curve limits.
  •  The opportunity to analyze their particular businesses? strengths and weaknesses in the face of these crises.
  • Insights to discover how specific principles of living systems can help adapt their businesses to behave more like relationally interwoven mature living systems
  • An appreciation on how to face current business challenges in more sustainable ways.
