Jessica shares her passion for bringing climate emergency activism into boardrooms. Her heart-based leadership and transformative experiences guide businesses and organisations into unlocking their purpose, leadership and strategic responses to the climate and ecological emergency that serve both, communities and ecologies. She talks about Bristol and the inspiring challenges of it transforming into a carbon neutral city by 2030 considering systemic inequalities, climate justice and our interconnectedness with global communities and nature.
We learn that community initiatives and young people are setting admirable examples of leadership taking agency to navigate the complexities of our time by freely standing in their power and truths to solve the climate crisis. We can all activate our purposeful leadership by spending time with nature. Nature is the teacher that can guide us into epiphanies and mindset shifts whilst providing sanctuaries of solace that can help us find purposeful responses during this great time of upheaval.
