We play a vital and catalytic role at the intersection of science, entrepreneurship, policy, business and ecological resilience. We do science and analysis to understand the basic opportunities and challenges associated with ecology and our environment, paying special attention to climate change, energy, food, water, forests and urban landscapes. We leverage the power of enterprise, economics and business to reap substantial and sustainable rewards to help foster wellbeing and prosperity while ensuring the integrity of our ecological systems. We educate and inform to transfer best practices, provide insights and inspire positive transformation. We are the Bhutan Ecological Society. We view ecology as the bedrock upon which the pillars of wellbeing and prosperity are supported.
