A sustainable future: systems thinking and regenerative design webinar
A free webinar to help businesses to better understand the impacts they have on the world, has been organised by the IoD Jersey Environment sub-committee. The aim is to show how regenerative design can help organisations to not only be responsible for what they create but to also drive innovative solutions for the benefit of their organisation and the environment.
As the world faces the complex interconnected challenges of climate change, cost of living and environmental break down, political unrest (and more) business leaders must consider if current systems are worth sustaining. Regenerative development offers a new way to tackle these system failures, building on a rich history of theory and frameworks. It requires to imagine our future and build the conditions for life.
The workshop will explore three introductory areas of regenerative development.
- An ecological worldview – the principles of interrelation and whole systems perspective
- Island regenerative innovation – why Jersey is well positioned to practice regenerative development
- Replication over scale – Who’s doing it elsewhere and how to spot the difference.
IoD Jersey Environment sub-committee chair, Elaine Walsh, said: “All organisations are operating in complex situations where understanding the impact they have on the world, and how that can work with their business strategy, isn’t easy. This webinar and expert panel, will look at sustainability from a whole system, process-oriented approach.”

India Hamilton, Founder & Board Member, SCOOP, the sustainable co-operative in Jersey said: “Regenerative design is based on ecological theory and systems thinking. The idea is that organisations can utilise this way of thinking to restore, renew, or revitalise their processes and outputs. It encourages a fresh way of meeting old challenges that isn’t just a sustainable way forward but creates positive net gains for the business and the environment.”
