We’ve been trained in many ways, not to have ‘ideas above our station’. The artificial limits set on us by other peoples’ thinking about what we’re capable of, limit our dreams and actions. Our climate emergencies cannot be solved with small steps that only lead to incremental change. Well-framed goals that are bold enough to match the scale of challenge to create a level of clarity and engagement like nothing else. That clarity helps crystallise the beauty of creative, practical solutions that can change our communities.
Nature has been solving complex problems and successfully changing worlds for over three billion years. Humans have been causing wars, poverty, pollution, hunger and toxic-designs of products (as well as lot of cool stuff) for a few thousand years. Andy Middleton Founder Director of the The TYF Group, and Founding Partner of The Do Lectures argues that if we intend sticking around to the end of the universe, we’ll need to start behaving more as though we’re a part of nature, rather than apart from nature.
Andy is a third generation entrepreneur and innovator. He's worked as a gold miner, lifeboat crew, sea kayak coach, organisation development consultant and business director. Inspired by social and environmental justice and armed with a combination of instinct and conviction, he founded TYF in 1986 is currently spending much time on co-developing the Do Lectures, which he runs with David Hieatt, and on the launch of a ground-breaking Biomimicry Innovation Centre in partnership with the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew and colleagues at consultancy BCI.
