Inspiring the Evolution of Culture

How did humanity get to this ecologically destructive point? How will we shift toward a sustainable future? The answers lie deep within our cultural roots, the disconnection from the Earth’s ecosystems, and underlying societal constructs that create pathways of consumptive, extractive human behaviors. What can shake us from these patterns? What can we do to inspire new ways of interacting with our planet? How can we weave together ancient wisdom and cutting-edge sustainable technologies? Let’s discuss and explore human nature, how we exist in our realities, and how to impact change in measurable ways.
