We are an inclusive team strongly influenced by the natural world to sustain a diversity of ecosystems and human communities for the future.
We help organizations and individuals with the work and process of change – addressing daunting barriers and creating inspiring possibilities.

“Stepping into the field of the future starts with attending to the opening of an inner crack. Following the crack requires us to let go of the old and ‘let grow’ something we can sense, but that we cannot fully know before we see it emerge.”

Otto Scharmer and Katrin Kaufer (Leading from the Emerging Future, 2013)

Vital Crossroads

We stand at an important crossroads between the past, present, and future. Sustaining the natural global environment and human well-being is both fragile and fraught with challenges.
Natural habitats, including wetlands, grasslands and shrublands, forests, deserts, and coral reefs, the diversity of wildlife these habitats support, and working land communities that depend on these resources are being lost, fragmented, or displaced at an alarming rate.

The Impact of Climate Change

Based on science produced by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, human influence has warmed the climate at rate that is unprecedented in at least the last 2,000 years.
The insidious nature of these environmental and social challenges creates increasing pressures and barriers to deliver conservation at the right pace and scale with layers of issues and conflicts that can prevent collaboration – at a time it is most needed.

A Movement of Hope

How do we address the cracks in ourselves and systems that is needed for change for the future? How do we equip our people and organizations with new ways of working together across divides? How do we move from “ego-system” to “eco-system” work and the well-being of the whole?

There is an arch of hope. A powerful and growing movement of people and communities are rolling up their sleeves to address the urgency of these challenges – contributing valuable leadership development, scientific, technical, financial, and spiritual resources to change hearts and minds through action.

Become a part of this alliance to learn and engage in new and emerging possibilities for change.
