Future City sustainability evangelist & entrepreneur
Replenish Earth Ltd

Dr Tia Kansara is the founder of Replenish Earth Ltd. and co-director of Kansara Hackney Ltd., the first ISO certified sustainable lifestyle consultancy in the world. She chairs the Sandbox Global Community and is the UCL Bartlett’s Ambassador to the Gulf region, advisor of the Economic Times of India, as well as a visiting professor at the Centre of Environment Planning and Technology, India.

Her recent work involves providing city governments with her concept of Replenish, a per capita assessment of ecosystem services as well as publishing her first book, Replenish. Replenish cities give more back to nature. Rather than sustaining the status quo they banish waste and create movements through lifestyles that are pro-nature.

Tia is partnering with Bhutan’s Gross National Happiness Centre, GIFT City and Masdar City. She has travelled to over 80 countries to share the World Replenish Index, and recently launched the Replenish Business Canvas at MIT Media Labs. You can see her talking about the future of cities and how to create societies that have a better relationship with nature in one of her six TEDx talks.
