Nourish people and projects allowing them to create radical shifts towards sustainable living
Our consultancy style is based on the following principles:
To create a world in which both humans and their ecosystems can flourish, we need to go beyond contemporary notions of sustainability and work from a positive mindset. From this mindset, project teams have the capability to generate a positive reciprocity between financial, built human, social and natural capital.
Diversity of stakeholder viewpoints enrich the outcome of a project. Differences and disagreements can be beneficial for a project within a field of caring, co-creativity and co-responsibility. A living systems design approach grounded in an understanding of a project´s local and bioregional context and its unique natural and social eco-systems will result in the well-being, nourishment and regeneration of that place.
Humans and eco-systems are interdependent, and the resilience of human communities requires the resilience of the natural communities we depend upon. A project team aligned with the purpose of its work will overcome the difficulties that arise during the complex process of creating a new place and result in resilient projects that maintain their health and productivity in the face of unpredictable changes arising in their environment.
