Masterclass about the complexity of introducing transformative changes

Whether it is the make over of a company from 1 x WIN into 4 x WIN, the closure of a road for traffic for healthy air and new urban functions, the abandoning of a product line for another, the change of a cultural habit for a more healthy one, changing job, redesigning an urban quarter, transforming a farm into a bed and breakfast, the battle between the car and bike in towns, starting to work from home to avoid commuting, etc. They are all transformative activities that face fear, uncertainties and maybe even opposition of your surroundings. They require vision, determination, guts, leadership and firm belief that these changes are for the better, even if no one else sees it yet. The complexity of change demotivates many, especially those in key functions. They prefer the status quo to preserve their position even if change is required from them. Self sacrifice is feared and not always a nice foresight when guts and self confidence fail.

Or about the evolution of humankind and the transformation economy.

Doing such changes together, in a multidisciplinary environment, makes a difference. It becomes easier, with the support and admiration of your surroundings. Especially if this surroundings is undergoing transformative changes of their own and at the same time, supported or enhanced by yours. This masterclass is being offered strategically to all stakeholders of the region of Southeast Brabant in the Netherlands that have joined the AiREAS community for regional health and a healthy environment. Such a commitment requires not just one transformative change but many. The masterclass is also made available to other enterprises, regional communities or businesses in the world dealing with complex issues for sustainable progress.

Sustainable city and business development, inspired by a tree

Living nature has been taking care of the regenerative sustainability of life for over 4 billion years. It is a source of unlimited inspiration on how to deal with our resources, entrepreneurship and sustainable regional development. In our worldwide online discussion on August 25th 2022, we take a tree as source of inspiration. The discussion is part of our online training course about regional self sufficiency and food resilience. This FRE2SH training consists of 10 modules that are being deployed one per month.

Our current cities are black holes of consumption, competing among each other for the limited resources that are needed for themselves and their populations. City management is often tunnelvisioned in the political financial model of dependencies. We take city councils on the path of local regenerative, non competitive resilience, by looking at the functioning of a tree.

For the 25th of August at 16:00 CET, we have invited three experts with totally different backgrounds. If you wish to join the online Safari please register here for free.
