Inner Development | Catalyzing Change From the Inside Out

09:00 - 10:00 - Alserkal Avenue, Dubai, UAE

Inner Development | Catalyzing Change From the Inside Out

The climate crisis is deepened by a tendency in business to address systemic problems in isolation, with a mechanistic, linear, and singular worldview.

Neol’s “Inner Development Pause” is a workshop experience designed to help your team explore the holistic approach of regenerative leadership and engage in the inner work that ultimately will drive the actions we take.

The experience invites you to leave behind a corporate worldview, bring your whole self, and acknowledge the emotions of the climate crisis. The session fosters within individuals an ability to connect with a life-centric paradigm and, in so doing, discover new ways of thinking about the value and growth that such a paradigm offers.

Rewilding the Imagination | How Visions of the Future Drive Action Today

Compelling visions of the future are critical to driving climate action. They help boards, investors, and other stakeholders understand where they could go, feel why it matters, and shape how they might get there.

But how do you imagine, shape, and communicate a vision that can inspire people to act?

Join the IDEO Climate Lab to discover how the power of vision inspires action and drives progress,

learn hands-on futuring practices you can apply to your work, and create a future vision of your own.

Then explore the role creators (on YouTube, TikTok, Instagram, and more) can play in activating sustainable lifestyles.
