Dialogue Evening: can work be regenerative?

  • Happy Bern Lab 32 Bürglenstrasse Bern, BE, 3006 Switzerland (map)

📌 What's a Dialogue Evening?
A Dialogue Evening is a simple 3h format with basic rules, such as speak from the I and deep listening, through which any group can explore a topic that matters to them and
the society they are embedded in.

💼 What's this event about?
The question we are interested in is: “How can we work towards a way of working that is regenerative to us as human beings, our organisations and our planet?”
This is an invitation to everybody intrigued to explore a dialogue that goes deep into the topic of regenerative work and to explore it with people from all kinds of backgrounds, from artist to refugee to party animals, from CEO to job-seeker.

🎯 Where does this topic come from?
The topic about regenerative work is more than just about well-being, happy employees or work-life balance. Everywhere we look we can see the world - and our experience in it - speeding up: Businesses and organisations in any sector are continuously asked to deliver more with less, more innovation and less time to imagine & dream about it, more output and less resources to achieve it, and so on. there is a certain story that we have been telling ourselves about what it means to be successful and what it means to be happy, which for now is focused on doing or having always “more”. Later than sooner we realise that the to do list are bottomless and that “getting stuff done” works like a boomerang.
We promote more happiness, health and well-being at work while somehow trying to put away the feeling that it’s not just all make-up: inviting us to hide the tiredness and burn-out with a smile on our faces. Companies well-being programs are well intended, and still below all these efforts they are sold to us as a tool to further optimise ourselves for more efficiency. So much so that in case we still can’t cope with the demands, we are left with only one conclusion: it’s me that is not enough.
