EXHIBITION COLLABORATION - "The Echo Chamber" by Swedish surrealist master photographer Erik Johansson explores themes linked to the power of perception as a key force through three interlinked works. Different scenarios illustrate how shifts in our own perception of the world can open up paths to a brighter future. Planethon provided research and knowledge support throughout the development phase of the exhibition collaborating with our partners as well as taking the lead in developing the texts for the exhibition.

PLANET CENTRIC
If it’s not good for the planet, it’s not good enough for us. We put the planet first, by being backed by science
PROCESS ORIENTED
Using the principles of design thinking, collaboration and co-creation in everything we do, we make the journey rewarding and the results outstanding.
IMPACT FOCUSED
We’re in the business of making a difference, with focus on creating lasting value in harmony with nature.
SERIOUS ABOUT PLAY
Joy is a serious thriving strategy when we’re tackling the big challenges and solving problems. We work best when we have fun.
CHAORDIC
We strive for a good level of order and at the same time allow breaking rules, make room for new perspectives and constantly reiterate our structure.
GRIT
We don’t give up. We keep trying even if it’s seemingly impossible. Stopping is not an option.

Our journey started when we realized the enormous and untapped potential of sustainability science built on an understanding that people and planet are intertwined in social-ecological systems.  That this was the detailed map to understand and navigate through complex, global problems.

This thinking has provided a new perspective on what it means to do business in a world where humanity is the largest driver of climate and environmental problems. Humans are in the driving seat. Even more importantly, this social-ecological map can help us support businesses to find the pathways to a sustainable future and be part of the team securing our planet as a safe and resilient home for future generations.

The world of business holds great responsibility and opportunity to drive the transformation of what and how we produce, consume and experience in our everyday lives. Although there is broad consensus across business landscapes around the urgency of innovating towards a sustainable future, available processes are slow and tools are inadequate.

The radical shifts needed demand new levels of speed, accuracy, scale and collaboration. To accomplish systems change, we need to move from hyper-competition and individual performance to collective intelligence, sensemaking and hyper-collaboration.
