Would You Like A 'Wilder' Organisation?
19:00 WEDNESDAY 12TH OCTOBER 2022
[AND AN OPTIONAL FREE ONE-TO-ONE 45 MINUTE CATCH UP WITHIN THE MONTH]
A BESPOKE SERVICE (ACCOMPANYING A PDF COPY OF THE 'HANDBOOK') FOR 10 ORGANISATIONS PER GROUP SESSION - ONE PERSON REPRESENTING EACH ORGANISATION - TO HELP YOUR INDIVIDUAL ORGANISATIONS TO INTEGRATE MORE HARMONIOUSLY WITH OUR PLANET (MAINTAINING A MUCH GREATER BALANCE).
WITHIN OUR ONLINE GROUP I WILL BE ADVISING YOU ALL ON HOW TO WILDLY INTEGRATE YOUR INDIVIDUAL ORGANISATIONS TO HARMONISE BETTER WITH OUR PLANET
WILD BENEFITS & SOME IMMEDIATE RETURNS ON YOUR INVESTMENT
Your £150 investment in a wild work place/healthy work force will offer an almost immediate return on investment (monetarily and in terms of greater health and well being, enabling greater productivity) in the following ways:
Using a lot less power (in innovative & creative ways that still enable the daily efficient running of your organisation) will be kind to your company/charitable bank accounts AND to our planet overall (100,000s of wild species across our globe will thank you) as well as being a great news story to promote your organisation, establishing yourself as an eco-leader within your local community and your specific industry.
BETTER PHYSICAL & MENTAL HEALTH
Yourself and your workforce will enjoy the subconsciously triggered - and well documented - state of well being and calm throughout your working day (whether a little or a lot is up to you) that our bodies are programmed to experience when amongst what we call 'nature' (trees, plants, bird song and our regular interconnection with other visiting wildlife).
Your newly wild workplace exterior will result in the absorption of vehicle emissions, meaning a healthier life for yourself and your work force.
CLEANER DRINKING WATER & FLOOD PREVENTION
Rain water that falls on 'wild' land is filtered (cleansed and purified) through wild land/soil very slowly - as opposed to bouncing off concrete or loose soil that isn't held together by the roots of trees and plants - before any run off finally makes its way into sewers to be further cleansed by local water authorities. The denser, packed soil and the absorption of rain water by trees and plants prevents a lot of rain water surging into the sewers all in one go (which is how pipes burst and flooding occurs) as well as preventing the accumulation of rain water around your property as the water takes time to drain away.
GREAT PR AND AWARD OPPORTUNITIES
A chance to apply for and win local 'green initiative' awards: raising your profile in the community, enabling new press and photo opportunities for your work place - even if you're a home based office - and setting an example (establishing yourself as a trail blazer) for other organisations within your industry to follow. (Both Saint Mark's Church and Alsager Council applied for and won community and industry eco-awards with some of our Wildscaping Worldwide designs and you can design your own equally award worthy and unique wild exterior space, based on our advice, during this 2 hour group consultation session).
LIVING IN GREATER HARMONY WITH OUR PLANET
(LOCAL & GLOBAL)
Sharing all of our spaces (land and property) as best we can and consciously investing our hard earned wealth, be that £50,000 or 50p, into services and products that enables ALL of our planets different life forms to live in greater harmony - be that sourcing different soaps and beverages for the work place or purchasing repurposed high quality equipment/furnishings instead of new - very sensibly invites our planet to practically sigh in relief as we humans take less and give up more space and resources for other creatures to thrive alongside us too, enabling greater balance within our planet and greater health and well being for all.
BEFORE OUR SESSION
You'll receive a PDF copy of the handbook, some info-packs and worksheets 24 hrs hours prior to our meeting, that we will work through (during our online session) and that you can keep. These are:
A. A diagram to help us share our exterior spaces most effectively and without sacrificing our own territories, boundaries & well being.
B. A 'Spending to Wildscape' checklist.
C. An info-pack listing a lot of the emergency environmental non profits that you can support to best help us all to better integrate into our planet more harmoniously.
D. A 'Wildscaping Balance Sheet.'
E. An info-pack on how best we can power/fuel our organisations to run off less whilst still living our lives to the max with lots of data & links as well as innovative & creative suggestions.
F. A self care (in life and in the workplace) checklist with an info-sheet on why this is SO important.
G. You'll receive a PDF 'We Are A Planet-Friendly Organisation' certificate (after our session) with your name and the date on.
HERE ARE THE TOPICS WE'LL BE CHATTING ABOUT DURING OUR SESSION
(WE WILL BE FILLING IN YOUR 'WILDSCAPING BALANCE SHEETS' (WHAT YOUR ORGANISATION TAKES & WHAT IT CAN GIVE BACK) THROUGHOUT THE SESSION AND YOU'LL BE EMAILED A COPY AFTERWARDS (THE SAME DAY) AND A DATED/SIGNED CERTIFICATE (WITH YOUR NAME ON).
A FRESH 'WILD' START
Starting from scratch: we will chat about 'living wildly' (without sacrifice). We'll start off our session making sure that everyone in the group understands what 'wild' and 'nature' really means and we will be examining our human position within our world (so that later on we can chat about your individual organisation's position within your local and global environment).
POWERING/FUELLING OUR LIVES & ORGANISATIONS
- What power sources are there for us & our organisations to use?
- What and how can we BEST take from the planet (through a form of energy) to live our lives to the max?
- How can we power our lives & organisations in such a way that we are still living in harmony with the world around us and all of the other species that share our spaces?
- How/what can we give back (so that we are operating more in balance with our planet)?
All of the ways that we choose to spend our money can help us to live in wild harmony with our planet. We'll be chatting about all of the options available to you and your individual organisations, to maximise your influences in manifesting a wilder world.
(YOUR INNER OFFICE ENVIRONMENT)
We will be looking into your specific, work place set ups (whether you're home based or on an official site) making sure that this session is tailored to what you each most want from your work spaces (how you want them to be set up) and then looking at how to do that in as planet friendly a way as possible...
A. The organisation's interior environment itself (talking about the air fresheners you use / sharing your spaces with house plants).
B. Let's look at everything that is used to mark out the space, whether you have a home office or a large, office building (desk / furniture / rugs / painting & prints / lights / decorations).
C. We will examine your daily working life (cleaning products & kitchen products / coffee, tea & milk / books / computers & phones & other technology / stationary eg. paper, pens, leaflets, business cards and all other general office equipment).
D. What about your work clothes themselves, if they could be better sourced/supplied (from suits to shoes to casual or outdoor clothing for work)?
E. Your organisation might have a lot of recycling options that you have not considered (and a lot of ways to upcycle your 'rubbish' in ways that also bring you a small profit).
F. We'll chat about First Aid materials and supplies (there are often more planet friendly options that organisations aren't aware of).
G. What about your work place 'territory & boundaries' (what to do about sharing your interior with other species, if/when they appear)?
EXTERIOR WORK PLACE PREMISES
YOUR OWN ‘WILD EXTERIOR’
Whether your work exterior is owned/rented and is a home window box or a large office or manufacturing estate, during our session we'll look at what you want most from the space for yourself (if you are home based) and for yourself and your work force (if you are an official premises).
These are just some examples of the helpful questions that we'll be going through, to determine how your exterior spaces can serve both your organisation and local wildlife...
A. What does my organisation really want from this space, to benefit myself/my staff?
B. Are there any spaces that I/we can give up to other species, for them to use?
C. Is there a way to collaborate with other species in these spaces?
Eg. Can I/my organisation install Bird & Bat Bricks / Hedgehog Highways / Letting trees grow / Putting fresh water out every day & night / Letting plants self seed themselves and claim bits of territory for themselves?
D. What boundaries do I (or does my organisation) need to put in place? (Eg. I’d like to have wildlife only use the bottom of my garden/the work estate and I’d like to keep the grass short near the house/offices, for myself/staff to use).
[If you rent an office or work space in a building amongst other tenants - all with their own companies - there are also questions and templates we can go through on how to wildscape your various workplaces together.]
MANAGING YOUR SPACES
We'll put a list together of what contractors you might each need to hire (even if that's just a gardener, for a small aspect of your plans).
Eg. A handyman to cut a Hedgehog Highway in your fence or builders to install Bat & Bird Bricks.
MAINTAINING YOUR SPACES
Over time there will be new challenges to your individual organisation's boundaries that you might not have expected, as wildlife (plants and animals) celebrate new space/habitat for them to have/move into.
Whatever your challenges, there are organisations dedicated to helping us all to live more in harmony with wildlife - without sacrifice - and I'll be chatting to you about them and leaving you with a list of the best companies to call upon, should you ever need to.
(If you have any challenges or concerns, Wildscaping Worldwide is also always available to help - FREE - with any ongoing queries).
SUPPORTING 'ENVIRONMENTAL EMERGENCY SERVICES'
Harmonising with our wild world is still a work in progress and - as such - supplementary support still needs to be given, as we humans evolve into more planet friendly practices. In our session I'll go through a lot of the emergency environmental non profits that you can support or even collaborate with to best help us all to better integrate into our planet more harmoniously.
[WE CAN ALSO CHAT ABOUT THE LOGISTICS OF ALLOCATING ONE OF YOUR STAFF TO BE A 'WILDLIFE FIRST AID OFFICER']
Wildlife casualties need help urgently when found and it's surprising how many people find a wildlife casualty on the way to work or even on the work place premises itself.
As a business, if you allocate one of your staff to be a Wildlife First Aid Officer, you'll be able to help local wildlife in a way that so few work places currently know how to. You can also make public (through promotional materials on the premises or on social media) about how you're doing all that you can to help your local wildlife: you might be surprised at how much it raises your company profile in the area.
Self care go hand in hand with mental and emotional well being which - as you know - is paramount in the work place.
Living/working 'wildly' also involves living healthily so we will wrap up our session by discussing the various ways that your individual organisations (whether it's just yourself, in your home, or an office/warehouse full of staff) can best enjoy the benefits of a wildscaped work space and some 'wild' practices.
