WHAT DO WE MEAN BY

LEADING IN AN EMERGING EMERGENCY?

Right now, we are facing a man-made disaster of global scale. Our greatest threat in thousands of years. Climate change.

"If we don't take action, the collapse of our civilisations and the extinction of much of the natural world is on the horizon."  

- Sir David Attenborough

WHY DO WE NEED

CULTURAL AND SPIRITUAL TRANSFORMATION?

“I used to think the top environmental problems were biodiversity loss, ecosystem collapse and climate change.  I thought with 30 years of good science we could address these problems.  But I was wrong.  

The top environmental problems are selfishness, greed and apathy…and to deal with those we need a spiritual and cultural transformation and we scientists don’t know how to do that”

- Gus Speth

Our Theory of Change

We are inspired by the Medici family in the 15th Century, who brought people together from a diverse spectrum of disciplines - From these intersections around meals, conversations, walks and story-telling came the Renaissance that changed the world.
