Andres Roberts believes a better world is possible if we could only find a way to work with nature.

He believes that we have to, for the sake of all of life.

Andres left the world of big organisations early on in his career. He set up an agency for playfulness in his mid twenties, before setting out to work with nature. He did a remarkable masters in responsible business business at Ashridge Business School. He then went on to study with a number of wisdom teachers.

Today he supports a range of people and organisations, from Patagonia to pioneering leadership schools like THNK and the Amani Institute, and alliances such as the World Benchmarking Alliance. 

He is the co-founder of Way of Nature UK, where he guides journeys to help people reconnect with the things that really matter in life. He is also the founding partner of the Bio-Leadership Project - an initiative that is helping to grow new forms of leadership and human innovation by doing it with nature.

Behind his work, Andres is interested in how to lead more whole lives and how to nurture a more whole world. These matters have taken him on a journey through learning, leadership and sustainability - and then deep into the wilderness, where he once sat alone on a mountain for 28 days, and to study with wise and wonderful teachers and elders from around the world.

Today, he respectfully brings some of these lessons back to modern life. Andres is starting to learn that we need more kindness. He is also learning how to be a Dad, a better friend, and a how to stay an adventurer.

He thinks we can make that better world.

There has never been a time like this, when humanity needs to reboot. There is no better way to do it than reconnecting with nature. We have to, for the sake of all of life.
