Drive Innovation by Learning from Nature's Design Principles

In this workshop, Gil and Constança take you on an immersive journey to unravel how life and nature´s intelligence can help us navigate our current societal transitions with hope and agency.
This journey includes interactive games, storytelling and collective sense-making moments. The nature-based design setting invites you to activate your senses and your whole-entrepreneurial self to be present.
We hope to celebrate the insights and learnings as we (re)connect to nature and life´s impulse.
