To make sustainability a reality, in business we all need to be change makers in some way. Regardless of what we do or how much time we have, we can all be part of positive change. However sustainability is a complex topic, and we often don’t have time to dive into it enough to know what we can do and how.
After many years working in the field of sustainability, founder Giselle Weybrecht was tired of hearing all the reasons we couldn’t move forward on issues that are important to us all. Gowi came about as a way to provide a helpful push and give everyone a chance to be a change maker. Gowi stands for “Get On With It”. The logo illustrates our spheres of influence (personal, professional, community), spheres where we have an impact daily and which gowi courses explore.
Gowis can also be created for individual organisations to educate your team or prepare and motivate participants for an upcoming event or meeting. Gowis can also be delivered live at events.
