Progress Over Perfection: Navigating Sustainability Realities

Now more than ever we cannot let the fear of failure or the pursuit of perfect prevent us from taking action. It’s time we shift the narrative and embrace a collective commitment to progress over perfection. Join this session and examine the pitfalls of waiting for the ‘perfect’ sustainability plan while we explore the incremental steps needed to nurture a culture of continuous improvement.

Keeping Our Heads Above Water: Navigating Water Strategies for Your Organization

Beyond industries that rely heavily on water as a resource, we are all increasingly impacted by climate-related water disasters such as floods, droughts, and storms. More frequent extreme weather brings with it additional risks to our workforces, communities, businesses, and organizations. This session will highlight strategies for water stewardship that all organizations must embrace to ensure existing and future water systems are as resilient as possible.

Justice at the Crossroads: The Role of Intersectional Environmentalism

Intersectional environmentalism (IE) aims to protect both people and the planet, while recognizing how environmental issues affect different groups in different ways, and inherently impacts marginalized and oppressed groups more. This session is for everyone who wants to learn more about IE, how to navigate the crossroads between environmental and social justice, and how to apply it to your work to create a more inclusive and regenerative future for all.

From Conflict to Collaboration: Working Across Difference to Advance Sustainability

Sustainability often involves competing priorities and diverse perspectives. This session explores how we can be guided by nature and work across differences to create a regenerative future together. Join this armchair dialogue to learn how to navigate uncomfortable ‘‘tough conversations,” how critical diversity in thought is to advancing sustainability goals, and how we can feel empowered to champion these conversations in this space and beyond.
