What is ecology?

Ecology is the study of interrelated systems. It's systems thinking, looking at relationships between all life on earth.

Biotic Potential provides training in ecology using the co- creation of knowledge between trainers and participants. In this way, a construction of knowledge becomes collaborative and situated within the organisation, community or business. We use models of complexity to make meaning from emerging patterns, find relationships previously unrealised and illuminate unconscious ideas. We used an arts- based methodology to encourage experimentation.  By doing this we have the opportunity to reframe ideas for new perspectives, working at the edge of our potential so we can take conceptual risks towards a thriving future.

Combining physical, biological & psychological threads of thought, 

ecosystem thinking helps build context, links & perspective into our ever changing world.
