By bridging ancient wisdom with modern technology, connecting a global network of wise practice and experience, and supporting teams, leaders and communities with tools, training, coaching and mentorship, we support in the creation of healthy, vibrant nations and self-empowered people.
We assist communities and nations in developing their vision, strategy, policies and organizational structures, using proven tools and frameworks, to establish good governance, financial, corporate, environmental and resource management, and the capacity for effective and culturally relevant decision-making over their lands and natural resources.
We support youth and heart-centered entrepreneurs with the tools and knowledge to champion Nation Re-Building in their territories. By providing values-based capacity-building, coaching and mentorship to teams and leaders, based on practical and proven experiences and frameworks, they are equipped with the tools, skills and knowledge to lead lasting change in their communities.
The movement to a Life Economy is a natural evolution born out of the knowledge that there is no separation between us and the natural world. There is only life. We are all life and all part of the natural order of things. Therefore, our relationship with the natural world must be one of fostering healthy continuity so that we all may live and thrive. An economy of service to life is one where we strive to not only maintain this equilibrium but strive to enhance it. We do this by working with the Earth, with the land, with each other, and through a consideration of the whole. By using new technologies such as geo-mapping, IoT, blockchain and new forms of “full value accounting” we support communities and entrepreneurs create economies and development that considers the full spectrum of life systems.
We support communities to negotiate, build, implement and sustain equitable partnerships with industry and green companies, to assist in their Nation Building vision and strategy. Through our global network of innovative, biomimetic and sustainable enterprises, we connect communities with new opportunities for high-value businesses that support their own values and principles. We then provide the training, mentorship and coaching for leaders and teams to negotiate partners that enable their traditional knowledge, lands and resources to be respected and protected for healthy and prosperous economic development of their Nations. Lastly, we support in the implementation and long-term viability of such partnerships or the eventual transition to full ownership by the Nation of the business.
We share experiences and wise-practices across more than 100 Nations for connecting communities, youth and Elders from around the world with cross-cultural expertise to help build local resilience, increase global collaboration, and share wise practices, stories and experiences.
We provide professional services in the following niche areas:
• Community development assessment and strategy
• Joint-venture partnership opportunity assessment and negotiation strategy
• Regenerative food system assessment and planning
• Peacebuilding between communities, governments and industry
• Economic governance and Board of Director training
We ensure that these mechanisms are tailored to meet specific community needs, as well as local realities. Combining traditional wisdom and contemporary knowledge at each stage, to create a holistic and values-based community-led process that reflects the interconnectedness of the community and enables members to define their future on their own terms, is a truly sustainable model to development.Building a Nation: a Success Story
Our vision is a global network of healthy, vibrant, thriving communities and people, living their true potential.
