Date: Saturday, February 26, 2000  Agenda

This one day workshop focused on understanding The Natural Step and its application to business.

"The Natural Step offers a framework that is based on science and serves as a compass for businesses, communities, academia, government entities and individuals working to redesign their activities to become more sustainable. The Natural Step encourages dialogue and consensus building, a key process of learning organizations." www.naturalstep.org

As a tool, The Natural Step reduces confusion, cutting through seemingly conflicting information in the sustainability debate. It offers a framework for strategic planning, and can be used as a compass for navigating step-by-step towards long-term economic and ecological sustainability.
