We believe that the changing climate is the most pressing issue of our time. It affects and connects us all and has profound implications for the health and well-being of our families and ecologies, economy, society and culture. Our current economy, by design, makes us engage in metabolic and socioeconomic activities that keep heating the planet. Though we may try to live in a more sustainable way in our personal habits, without systems-level change, it is unlikely to be enough to tip the scales towards a cooler planet.
The Way Forward
We take a systems-level approach to addressing climate change, working to create an economy that cools the temperature of the planet, rather than heating it. In this uncharted territory that is climate change, we become wayfinders, working with our co- navigators to build an economy and culture that operates in harmonious relation to the planet.
