2023 / 2022 LookForward LookBack
A prediction for 2023 & a look back at 2022 most read Regen Notes
With deep gratitude, wishing all Regen Notes subscribers and readers a regenerative 2023, as we head into a new year with a look forward prediction and a look back on the most read posts in 2022 …
In October 2022 I was asked by Thinkers 360 to share my predictions for sustainability in 2023 as part of a series to provide actionable insights for business and technology executives.
2022 has been a climate wake-up around the world, we saw more and more climatic events and have become acutely aware that we are on the cusp of a future that can be irreversibly disastrous or regeneratively wonderful.
As we move into 2023, our relationships and connectivity with our natural world needs to deepen and to surface in nature-based climate solutions. And in doing so, to work to co-create conditions that will allow all life to flourish and thrive.
We need a shift in mindsets, seeking potentials and solutions, not barriers or placing band-aid fixes on problems we have failed to solve for decades. Giving ourselves and each other the time and space to ask better questions and understand how each decision and action is either degenerative or regenerative.
This means not only questioning and changing the ‘outer’ (the what we do), but also seeking to change the ‘inner’, our mindsets, behaviours and how we, and our organisations, show up in the world.
We all have agency in making 2023 that tipping point for a future where we thrive and co-evolve with the living systems upon which we depend.
