About the series as a whole

Meeting the global sustainability challenge requires a fundamental shift in the way we look at the world, engage with each other and with all other forms of life, and manage human affairs. Our capacity for thinking in new paradigms and pursuing creative experimentation is essential and urgently needed.

The Sustainability Laboratory, a not-for-profit research, development and educational organization, was established in 2008 in order to develop, demonstrate and facilitate innovative approaches to sustainability practices, thereby expanding prospects, and producing positive, life-affirming impacts on people and ecosystems in all parts of the world.

In our work, we seek to achieve deep, transformational results. We also recognize that the sustainability issues we are facing require unprecedented new levels of collaboration and cooperation amongst those engaged in advancing the sustainability agenda.

To advance the cause, The Sustainability Laboratory is continuing our conversation series, launched in 2021, to provide a new forum for the exchange of ideas, and we invite you to join us for our 2022 “Exploring the Sustainability Challenge” events.

We will be engaging thought leaders from around the world in conversations exploring key ideas related to some of the most urgent topics of our time.

Please join us for a free, monthly, live conversation via Zoom.
