Founder & Principal
“Don't ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive, and go do that, because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”
- Howard Thurman
WHO AM I AND WHAT IS GOOD BEING?
My name is Bo Aganaba and I am the Founder and Principal at Good Being Co. I am an urban, environmental, and energy planner by training, and former executive director of a youth-led sustainability not for profit organization. I am the son of Nigerian immigrants, and have spent time living in the UK, Canada, Hungary and Denmark - which has all contributed to giving me a deep sense of appreciation and belonging to the world as a whole.
In my role working with sustainability advocates and professionals, I have seen and felt the risks of burnout, anxiety, fear, and eco-grief facing so many. I have developed a passion for helping people hold the reality of the scale of the challenges we face through mindful awareness, while also using collaboration, creativity, storytelling, and dialogue to help teams navigate challenging topics and goals.
Systems are informed by the individuals that comprise them. It is clear that systemic change is needed if we are to adequately respond to issues like climate change, inequity, and discrimination. Good Being exists to co-create more holistic and regenerative ways of being for individuals, so that we can impact systems across all levels.
