How do we reintegrate seemingly disparate aspects of our lives and of society in a manner conducive to true sustainability? As Richard Louv asks, 'how do we heal human-nature relationships?' This presentation will inspire Bioneers with astounding scientific understandings of Earth as a single living system and with cultural wisdom and insights into human beings as a seamless continuum of Earth’s life. The talk will celebrate the fertile confluence between science and innate understandings of ourselves as part of Nature. Participants will be challenged to think outside their own boxes and to actively engage with business, science and government in acts of “Gaian Ecology.” Finally, we will explore and identify “leverage points” around which we can work toward sustainability and resiliency. Under the context of the “Gaia Paradigm,” powerful models, metaphors and stories we need for the 21st Century will gather and take root in society! Presented by Martin Ogle of Entrepreneurial Earth LLC.
