Challenges? What challenges?
Oh, you know. “Little things” that pose significant risks to your future success, like:
- Dependence on outdated models in times of rapid change
- Resource insecurity
- Unexpected supply chain failures
- Move to low carbon policies resulting in stranded assets in fossil fuel investments and failings in financial returns
- Increased compliance demands requiring better standards of practice, and the risk of hefty penalties for failing to adhere
- Public and consumer expectations for organisations to take responsibility, take action and be transparent, which can make or break a reputation
And that’s just for starters…
If you’ve said “yes” to one or more of our questions, you’re in the right place.
Whitbys provides professional facilitation, designs workshops, and delivers training to raise awareness and encourage action in the face of the climate crisis. We’re a small team with big ideas and a vision for a bright future, and we work with organisations, individuals, and climate researchers to make change happen.
We work with organisations who understand that climate change is a threat to their growth and profitability, and who want to understand the risks, identify opportunties, and develop strategies to thrive in the face of today’s sustainability challenges.
Through interative learning experiences, facilitated workshops, and participatory strategic planning sessions, our goal is to help you thrive in changing times.
For researchers and scientists
How can organisations and policy makers make well-informed decisions about risks and opportunities in a rapidly-changing world? We believe that the best infomation will come from researchers and scientists who are experts in their fields of study.
The problem is that we don’t all have time to read dozens of academic papers to find solutions. Sometimes, the language that researchers use is not easy for the “rest of us” to understand. That’s why we put our communication experitise to good use, training researchers and scientists to share their work with non-experts at our sister-company, SciComm Success.
For individuals and communities
Tackling the climate crisis isn’t just about organisations taking action or researchers making sure that their messages are heard. It’s also about making sure that the individuals who belong to our communities are part of understanding the challenges and contributing to the change we want to see in the world.
With that in mind, we run an initiative called “Peak to Deep”, where we create spaces for individuals, community groups, and schools to learn, exchange, and find ways to act without spiraling into a “doom and gloom” mindset.
We believe that it is possible to use today’s sustainability challenges to ask “What if…” and “Why not?” to envision and create a thriving future for organisations, society, and the natural world. Meet our people
