This article is part 1 of 3 in "Rewilding the workplace" - our Futures Centre discussion topic of the month. Continue the discussion with part 2 "What can workplace design learn from nature?" and continue the discussion in part 3 with the full analysis.
Digital capabilities are revolutionising the world of work. Much mainstream debate is about job loss: where will the jobs of the future come from? But there’s also the question of how we will work. Can we work in ways that enhance our health and wellbeing — and even that of the planet?
Tell us in the discussion here, read more in our annual publication The Long View, and join us in Singapore with authors Paul Hawken and Janine Benyus to discover how nature’s models can transform commerce and help us tackle one of our greatest challenges: climate change.
RSVP: Learning from Nature, National University of Singapore, 5.00–6.30pm, Tuesday 8 March 2016.
