A Sustainable Future Looks Like



 

Our featured speaker on April 28 is Lea Elliott, Principal of Naturehood Ecological Consulting. Lea turns lessons from nature, scientific research and case studies into relevant and effective environmental action for professionals that they can use to be more sustainable at work.

Lea will present her new book: Work Like Nature: sustainability lessons from ecosystems for your job or business. She’ll share ideas from nature that will help you work more sustainably. You’ll gain insights from Vancouver’s green innovators who are working like nature and creating wins for the environment, their businesses and their communities. Don’t miss this opportunity to be inspired by nature and our local innovators.
