We’re highlighting  just a few well-known visionaries in their fields like; David Korten, William McDonough, and Joanna Macy. But more important, you are the visionary for what you want. 


Design economic activity around life - not money; around self reliant communities, not the maximization of profits.

We are overshooting the planet’s carrying capacity. So, how can we live sustainably on this one and only planet. William McDonough offers a “cradle to cradle” economic system design;Our goal is a delightfully diverse, safe, healthy and just world, with clean air, water, soil and power – economically, equitably, ecologically and elegantly enjoyed.” This shift in intention is a sign of hope for a livable future.
