Speaker: Clare Dubois

Toward a New Nature-Based Feminine Consciousness

Clare Dubois is the founder of TreeSisters.org, a quickly-growing women’s crowd-funding and consciousness-shift campaign to inspire and direct the brilliance, creativity and generosity of women towards the reforestation of the tropics and shared leadership around ecological restoration. TreeSisters reflects Clare’s exploration of the links between feminine consciousness and Nature’s intelligence. She and her team experiment overtly to discover how to call forth the unique capacities and creativity of women on behalf of the trees. They are currently funding over 1.7 million trees across Kenya, Madagascar, India, Brazil, Cameroon and Nepal.  Clare founded TreeSisters after a car crash that delivered a life changing message – it was revealed to her that the tropics needed to be reforested within 10 years – that women were the missing piece in the climate change crisis – and that feminine consciousness needed to be reinstated, or – "it’s over".

Clare is an Earth-loving social entrepreneur and inspirational speaker who worked internationally for 18 years facilitating groups, coaching business leaders and creating behavior change processes within the personal growth sector.
 
As a Be The Change Symposium facilitator and freelance writer, she worked for three years as the UK coordinator for a massive agro-forestry initiative in southern India called Project GreenHands (PGH) before initiating TreeSisters. Through her work with PGH she has distilled the social mobilization strategy deployed with great success in India, and now turns it towards the mobilization of women within TreeSisters.
 
Clare’s passion has always included exploring how patterns of consciousness manifest as behaviors.  Her primary work is in the creation of processes, tools, courses, and messaging that can access the nature-connected essence of woman and activate new forms of leadership. Though Clare founded and is leading the campaign, TreeSisters at all levels is jointly held and developed within the circle of core team members.  Clare works on network development, ethos and principles, organizational culture and strategy as they relate to the Map of 5 Choices and behavior change materials.  She offers a free mini-course on “Rewilding your Feminine Nature.”
 
She is committed to the creation of an evolving system that learns as it goes and continually models itself upon the flows and forms of living systems. In her own life, her aim is to reclaim balance, to revel in freedom and health and to be 'walking permission' for those who are fed up of being held back, and just want to have a go.
