What's happening in Western Australia (courtesy of our friends at Holonic)?
Holonic is a strategic design consultancy helping individuals and organisations appreciate and respond to complex challenges. Their founders Dylan Lamb and Andrew Thomson were inspired to start the company nearly two years ago, due to lack of awareness and education around the 'circular economy' heuristic framework and inspiring narrative and model for a future economic system for Australia that works for all, within the ecological limits of the planet. Holonic is an enabler and ecosystem catalyst for the transition to a circular economy for WA. The following 3 interwoven principles guide what they do:
Develop and maintain healthy relationships with NATURE. The ways we live and work must learn from nature and integrate with it, as it sustains us.
Develop and maintain healthy relationships with SELF & OTHERS. The ways we live and work must strive to increase the happiness and well-being of all.
Develop and maintain healthy relationships with the FUTURE. The ways we live and work today must aim to create a future where future generations can thrive.
