Regeneration: Ending the Climate Crisis in One Generation, with Paul Hawken
Can we really end the climate crisis in one generation? Author, activist, and entrepreneur Paul Hawken believes so. Regeneration is Paul’s new book outlining a visionary blueprint for climate progress, and he will be joined in conversation by Clover Hogan and John Elkington to discuss how to get the job done.
Climate change is the biggest challenge of our time. Rising to the challenge, NYT-bestselling author Paul Hawken, who has long been a leading voice in the climate movement, has developed a radical new and practical approach to tackling climate change.
His new book Regeneration offers a blueprint to ending the climate crisis in just one generation. It’s a book that weaves justice, climate, biodiversity, equity, and human dignity into a seamless tapestry of action, policy, and transformation. Hawken contests that solutions to the climate crisis can directly serve our children, the poor, and the excluded, and that initiatives need to go well beyond solar, electric vehicles, and tree planting.
Paul was joined by climate activist Clover Hogan and corporate sustainability champion John Elkington to outline and discuss exactly what those radical solutions are, and what needs to happen to make them a reality.

We all want our 2022s to be better than our 2021s. And we can make sure we can, if we think hard about what "Success" means for us both professionally and personally.
The pandemic has made us think deeply about what really matters to us. Just copying other people's versions of Success no longer feels enough, but it's often what we end up doing because of the "Comparison Culture" that surrounds us. And also because we aren't clear enough about our own goals.
In this engaging, interactive workshop, bestselling author and leading motivation expert Sharath Jeevan will help us rethink what a successful 2022 could look like, helping us be clearer in defining and achieving our success goals - and being happier, more fulfilled and more successful in the process. Sharath's previous workshop at the Conduit drew rave reviews.
