An Annual Affair: 2019

The biophilia effect

Join us in Serenbe for the Biophilic Leadership Summit – the annual gathering of nature-centered change-makers, urbanists, architects and environmental trailblazers.

This year’s focus is on “The Biophilia Effect.” We’ll explore how biophilic design & practices impact our health and wellbeing; from nature’s effect on brain activity patterns and benefits of urban greening, to how Southeastern cities are leading the way with biophilic design. 

Meet with national leaders and industry professionals to hear their expertise, form new partnerships and discuss future directions in the field of biophilic models, urbanism and design.

Experience wellbeing, farm-to-table food, interactive workshops, nature hikes, and educational keynotes and discussions in the pastoral setting of Serenbe.

From our pre-conference welcome to our closing educational tour, the Summit provides endless opportunities to network with fellow attendees, share new ideas and make an impact on the natural world.
