We have one chance to get this right. To bring our collective actions in line with the earth’s renewable resources. To restore the biodiversity of this planet so that our species can survive for future generations. And to do so with humility, equity and compassion for all.
We take our inspiration from Project Drawdown (edited by Paul Hawken), Climate: A New Story (Charles Eisenstein), Winners Take All (Anand Giridharadas) and from children, animals and living systems the world over.
History shows that we can’t simply measure our current actions against last year’s actions. But we must inhabit a new reality. One that manifests net positive impact for the good of all.
