We Believe

The world is already nearing social and ecological collapse, and things will get worse before they get better, but we're too smart, too well connected, and too passionate to just sit around and do nothing

We (humans) have polluted the air, water, and soils of our own home. We've depleted the planets natural resources, starved each other to death, and threatened our own survival as a species. If that's not f*ucking up, we don't know what is. 

icon_nested_big_time.jpg

We f*cked up, 

big time

We still haven't a point of no return. There's still fish in the sea, birds in the sky, and creative energy and willpower in millions of people who refuse to let go of the dream of a transition towards a world of connection, nature, abundance, and beauty.

Not all hope

is lost

The emergence of biomimicry, circular economy, nature-based solutions, global-scale climate movements, eco-socialism, degrowth movements, and visions of ecotopias are a clear sign that seeds planted in the past are finally taking root.

Things are changing

We (humans) have polluted the air, water, and soils of our own home. We've depleted the planets natural resources, starved each other to death, and threatened our own survival as a species. If that's not f*ucking up, we don't know what is.
