Transformation of Consciousness

There must be a transformation of consciousness in order to truly “embed” sustainability in our companies and our society.

• How can this transformation take place?
• What are the mechanics of implementing change?
• How have businesses and communities facilitated transformation?
• What are the results of such a transformation?

Join us for a discussion of these and other questions as we explore the role of consciousness in creating sustainable business and a sustainable world.
