Impact Safari The British Isles: A Great Rewilding

Led by Seth Tabatznik, Be the Earth & 42 Acres Founder alongside Small Giants Academy Founder Berry Liberman, travel through the British Isles, immersing yourself in visions of a wilder future.

Embrace once-in-a-lifetime connections and conversations with a curated cohort of purpose-driven humans. Engage in exclusive workshops, talks and meetings with some of the leading local and global regenerators, re-wilders and systems thinkers.

Rewilding is about letting nature take care of itself, enabling natural processes to shape land and sea, repair damaged ecosystems and restore degraded landscapes. Through rewilding, wildlife's natural rhythms thrive.

This Impact Safari is for those who are seeking to inspiration and activation to rewild their lives, hearts and minds. To be in service of a thriving planet, mobilising towards the next economy.

Who is this program for?

Impact Safari The British Isles is designed for a diverse cohort of humans all activating their communities in service to a thriving planet. This may look like business leaders, impact pioneers, activists,  policy makers and capital holders.

This Impact Safari is by application only, with limited capacity.


Why Rewilding?

It is a tangible, practical way to reweave ourselves back into the miracle of nature and remember that we are a part of a living system and we can also be a part of the repair of that system. - Berry Liberman  

Why the British Isles?

Major rewilding projects have taken off accross the British Isles and it is a perfect microcosm example of successful rewilding work that proves the profound impact of this emerging practice. Britain has been greatly affected by post-WW 2 policy which prioritise farming subsidies to ‘Feed the Nation’ – outdated policies which have seen inter-generational destruction of nature and rapid decline of species (Near extinction of many) – the rewilding movement has seen the rebuilding of those endangered species lists, the regeneration of the soil and the reinvigoration of whole communities. We will be able to see up close some long term, outcomes of rewilding – both terrestrial and in the underwater scapes.

We will have the opportunity to discuss the financing of these projects, the policy environment needed to support them and the groundswell of  community enthusiasm that is driving a shifting narrative towards intact, whole natural systems to support life, food security and human flourishing. - Berry Liberman
