HOW CAN SILENCE LEAD US TO A MORE SUSTAINABLE WORLD?
If you want to save the world, you must also deal with your inner world. If you want to achieve purposeful goals, you must take care of your biggest asset: your mind. So, don’t just do something – just sit there!
THE SILENT DRIVERS OF SUSTAINABLE SOLUTIONS
When Laura Storm, an internationally recognized WEF Young Global Leader and executive director of the green think & do tank Sustainia, suffered a severe concussion and whiplash after a fall, this did not only put her sustainability work on hold.
It also forced her to change her life and enter a new chapter of her personal and professional sustainability journey.
THE SURVIVAL KIT FOR SUSTAINABILITY LEADERS: NATURE & STILLNESS
Today, enjoying life, prioritizing stillness and tapping into the intelligence and wisdom of Nature have not only become Laura’s personal life principles. They have also become key to creating sustainable business solutions for the benefit of people, planet and profit.
As Laura explains: “If you want to save the world, you must take care of your biggest assets: your mind & your soul. I truly believe that if CEOs prioritized time to connect with themselves and the planet they inhabit, we would see a radical shift in mindset and business practice.”
