Sally Goerner

Dr. Sally Goerner is Science Advisor for Capital Institute (Greenwich, CT). With advanced degrees in engineering, nonlinear dynamics, and psychology, Dr. Goerner lectures worldwide on how the Energy Network Sciences (ENS) can create a commonsense narrative of how to rebuild economic vitality by revitalizing human networks. Working with theoretical ecologist Robert Ulanowicz and Belgian financier Bernard Lietaer, she recently helped create an empirical measure of economic sustainability that shows why systemic health in economic networks requires maintaining a critical balance of resilience and efficiency. Dr. Goerner is also a member of the General Evolution Research Group (GERG), past-president and co-founder of the Society for Chaos Theory in the Life Sciences, and director and founder of the Integral Science Institute. She has written over 50 articles and four books: The New Science of Sustainability: Building a Foundation for Great Change (2008); After the Clockwork Universe: The Emerging Science and Culture of Integral Society (1999/2007); The Coming Great Change in Education (2007); and Chaos and the Evolving Ecological Universe (1994). She’s a co-author with Benard Lietaer of Money and Sustainability: The Missing Link – Report from the Club of Rome (2012).
