â€If wealth is lost nothing is lost,
If health is lost something is lost,
If character is lost everything is lostâ€
How do we create a more sustainable world? Why should we care? And what parts do management practices have to play, in helping us to create a more stable equilibrium between the human and the natural worlds?
These are some of the questions that Dr Paul Shrivastava, an academic entrepreneur and the Chief Sustainability Officer at Penn State University, is seeking to answer with his research.
Paul advocates for a transdisciplinary approach to the worldâ€™s problems, in which we donâ€™t just take an in-depth view of one particular subject, but instead integrate and synthesise our collective understandings, and work holistically to create meaningful change.
Watch our interview to discover the ways in which a new style of management can help lead us closer to an open, creative, and imaginative new world.
