Mission

To increase people’s capacity to transform social-ecological systems to achieve desirable futures that are sustainable, regenerative, just, and equitable by rapidly co-creating and amplifying knowledge, capacities, learning and action.

Purpose

We catalyze transformations by operating at the interface between research and practice, knowledge creation and action. We act as a bridge to connect people working to catalyze transformations across different sustainability-related domains (e.g. water, energy, food, biodiversity), siloed disciplines and fields, places and cultures, and institutional settings (e.g. academia, government, NGOs, private sector).

We share and support cutting-edge action research and provide learning and career development opportunities. We both enhance people’s skills and help develop their mindsets and their sense of hope and possibility to lead collaborative efforts to innovate and scale for transformation.
