Science Festival – Tiny Leaps Over Deep Chasms: How to be a Sustainability Leader

17 August 2018 @ 2:00 pm3:00 pm


Presented by Dr Adam Bumpus, Senior Lecturer in Environment and Innovation from the School of Geography.

We are at an unprecedented time in the history of humankind. We know that disruption is all around us and challenging the way that we live, the economies that we work in, and the environment that supports us.

We need to innovate and connect or die. But we don’t know how to do this within the timeframes needed and within the paradigms we have currently.

It’s clear that we need a new sustainable business way of doing, but despite the rhetoric largely this still is not happening. This is why we need to start taking some tiny leaps – for our own paths and own happiness. This talk is part of a series of talks on how we as people and businesses will thrive in the new economy. It places you as the CEO to create change around, and within, you.

This talk is for anyone who wants to understand how we can make our world more sustainable (even if you’re not in sustainability, you are part of sustainability), and the need to take tiny leaps many times a day. It gives the context of how to become this person, the tools and thinking you can use, and some examples of how I did this in different contexts. Its open and honest and gives you a pathway to do this.
