About this event

For those questioning traditional economics and eager to explore new perspectives on business for societal well-being within planetary limitJoin us for a reflective workshop about Regenerative Economics by João Brites, the Spring 2024 Social Innovator-in-Residence invited by the ERA Chair in Social Innovation and the DESIS Lab at Nova SBE.

This is a workshop for everyone who is unsettled by the state of the world, who questions classical economic theory, and who is energized by the possibility of self-examining and self-generating new thinking and action on the role of business and economics in enabling society to meet the needs of all within the means of the planet. Throughout this workshop we will embark on a journey to learn from the indigenous peoples of the amazon rainforest, we will travel to the outer space to kindle our worldview, and we will invite participants through a series of guided, self-led reflection exercises on what might make a regenerative economy, how it might differ from the current one, the path to achieve it, and our role in it. This workshop is not about telling you how to think or how to act, but about putting you in charge of your own thinking, development, and practice by introducing new frameworks to help see and materialize new potential.

The workshop is organized by the DESIS Lab @ Nova SBE and it’ll take place at Haddad Institute.

Open to All!
