Too often, opportunities in sustainability are found and given through established networks that are hard to break into. We need to open up access to enable a diversity of perspectives and approaches that unlock powerful divergent thinking.
When rigid systems and processes don’t leave space for life and don’t centre our humanity, it can lead to burnout, low productivity and less creativity. We need a more human-centric future of work that unlocks the very best in people.
Sustainability challenges are vast, complex and constantly evolving. It’s impossible to house all of the skills needed under one roof. We need the flexibility to bring more skills, experiences and outlooks into the team right when they're needed.
A vision for a new world delivered by old-world management principles of the 20th century structurally won't deliver. We need new systems and approaches that enable more ideas, surprising solutions and breakthrough innovation.
