For those working to reverse ecological crises and innovate solutions, the greatest untapped resource is a deep understanding of human behavior.

It is time to fully comprehend how people feel, experience, come to terms with, and act in our ecologically fragile world.

Knowing how people relate to change enables us to engage, mobilize, and inspire positive action.


Each one of us cares about our planet. However it’s not always clear what to do about it.

Innovating solutions to our most urgent challenges requires we be savvy about human behavior. We can no longer afford to not be. It’s time for us to become fluent in what it means to be a human today.

Renee Lertzman knows how to turn our aspirations for a better world into actions that make a difference. She works with leaders in business, government, NGOs, and academia to develop innovative research, insightful strategies, and transformative learning programs to effectively engage stakeholders in responding to the most profound challenges of our time.
