Holistic Management Intensive
Tuesday, May 14, 2019 - 8:30am to Wednesday, May 22, 2019 - 5:00pm
A new approach is needed to address the most pressing
problems we face today: climate change, failing agriculture, increased droughts and flood events, catastrophic rates of soil erosion, hunger and poverty, among other disasters, combined with the broadening recognition that our economic models, based on the flawed presumption of infinite growth in a world of finite resources, are inherently unsustainable.This new approach needs to involve a paradigm shift, a whole new way of thinking, because the old ways of thinking have helped create these global problems. Holistic Management is a framework for decision-making that supports individuals and groups to make a paradigm shift.
