Changing systems is never hands off: you have to become part of the system. Changing systems has the potential to change everything and everyone implicated in the system.
I firmly believe that we are not destined to be a destructive species. I know we have the potential of healing the Earth and her people by co-creating diverse regenerative cultures everywhere.
Over the last few years my organization, Green Releaf Initaitive, has been prototyping our permaculture gardens on select sites affected by disasters and displacement. At the core of our theory of change is not just “design” but regenerative design that invites us to go beyond sustainability and ways that we can apply it in contexts of aid and development.
