Butterfly School

Paving the way
to regenerative business

A regenerative company is designed and organises itself as a living system, operating within planetary boundaries.

Regenerative companies serve the capacity of living systems – both human and non-human – to regenerate the conditions conducive to life on Earth. Whatever its size, place or sector, your company can embark on the path of regeneration and change its economic model, culture and organisation.

Courses

Our courses are designed for businesses ready to go beyond reducing negative impact, to regenerating conditions for all of life to flourish. They offer practical tools to start implementing transformation straight away in your organisations.

#regenerativecultures

Daniel is enthusiastic about regenerative cultures, whether they be communities of plants in his bioregion in Majorca, or places and organisations around the world developing relationships with the living systems they are part of and depend on. A scientist and an author, Daniel considers human societies and everything they produce as an integral part of the living world. He invites us to reconcile the power of design and technology with indigenous and place-based knowledge and practice. The hope for the future is resolutely in the here-and-now, in deep connection with life all around us. https://designforsustainability.medium.com/

#wearetheuniverse

Brian is a cosmologist, researcher and professor. He has always been called to the question of the meaning of life, and inspired by the connection between the universe as a research object and himself as a subject who is an expression of the evolution of the universe. The relationship between the stars we observe and the atoms that make up our body is enabled through our capacity for reflexion. Brian proposes a new inside-outside orientation towards the beauty of life. He invites to align with this movement that characterises everything our planet is composed of, to become allies of the living world, and enter into communion with the unfolding universe.

#systemsviewoflife

Frijov is a physicist with a passion for life sciences. He has recently synthesised decades of work on living systems into four characteristics of life, described in his book The Systems View of Life. His practice of systems thinking is founded in a multilingual childhood and research in physics, alongside a lifelong interest for oriental thought. He suggests practical tools and a practice of the arts to enourage new ways of thinking and understand interconnections, intentions and contexts. In a complex world, it is essential to remember how creative we humans can be, because creativity is the very essence of life. https://www.capracourse.net/

#rethinkingfinance

Gillian is a researcher and founder of a strategic consultancy in finance. Bringing together solid academic research and long experience in private capital markets, she invites us to rethink a financial system too intimately linked with exploitation of natural resources and people, particularly in countries that have sufffered from colonialisation. To do this, she associates financial capital with other forms of capital: cultural, social, political. By identifying biases and bottlenecks, and by cultivating the soil of human relationships to make it more fertile for a new paradigm, it is possible to swiftly reallocate private capital to large-scale transformative initiatives. https://www.resiliencecapitalventures.com/triplebframeworkpositionpaper

John followed his intuition to bring his experience in finance to explore new pathways towards regenerative capitalism. After many years on Wall Street, he founded the Capital Institute to promote ways to align the economy with the miracle of life, as understood by ancient wisdom and new science. He invites us to go beyond the fear of scarcity with courage, to found a new economic culture on regenerative principles. https://capitalinstitute.org/

Isabelle is an agronomist, researcher and story-teller. From her research on sustainable innovation, she has developed a vision for a world where technology innovates in service of life, and humans are co-creators of our planet’s dynamic balance. She calls this the symbiotic economy, a regenerative economic model where synergies are created between the biosphere, technology and human organisations. Her core practice: think in ecosystems, from the micro level to macroeconomy, to become builders of a regenerative world. https://www.lentreprisesymbiotique.com/

#regenerativecities

May is an international urbanist, consultant, researcher and keynote speaker. She brings a regenerative approach to the évolution of the ways humans inhabit the earth, and is particularly interested in the influence of women on these transformations. May works at the edges, in liminal spaces between indigenous and migrant communities, humans and more-than-humans. She invites cities and urban zones to rethink their contribution to their environment. The role of businesses in tomorrow’s citites will be to revive relationships between places, producers and consumers. Businesses will need to rethink these relationships to go beyond transactional exchange and reinvent themselves from the biological, spatial and cultural uniqueness of place. https://www.mayeast.co.uk/

#climateconversations

Frederic spent years exploring organisations reinventing themselves and adapting to a changing world. In the process he met many leaders, and created conversations about what really matters for each of them. Today, he’s dedicated to stimulating deep and sincere conversations amongst friends, colleagues, family about current and future global challenges: climate, biodiversity, pollution. Because we need to become more aware together, sharing realisations and moments of insight with people around us. If we can create spaces to express what we find moving, intolerable, and our calls to action we can commit collectively to making transformational change. https://www.theweek.ooo/

#feelimaginedoshare

Childhood full of curiosity and potential; this is the gift Kiran would like to offer all children. A trained designer, when her son starts school she questions the purpose of the education system and becomes a social entrepreneur with the ambition to reinvent schooling. It’s not the curriculum that needs changing so much as the underlying paradigm: orienting every educational projet to be in service of children’s agency in the world. Kiran offers a simple approach to developing empathy, staying curious and taking risks, with four beautiful verbs: feel, imagine, do, share. https://schoolriverside.com/
