It's safe to say that the current global economic paradigm regards people and nature as important only to the extent that they serve economic activity. It is out of sync with what we know humans need to flourish. We exist under an economic narrative that no longer serves the needs of our time yet it still drives our global systems.  

We don't think it has to be this way anymore. Join sustainability & economic thought leaders to explore how cultivating "an economy in service to life" can help us reach a more just and regenerative future.  Participants will be given an opportunity to directly contribute to co-creating a new economic narrative that will drive the future we want. We are architects of change, wont you join us?

This event will serve as the official launch for the program series Cultivating an Economy in Service to Life. This series will build the collective capacity, awareness and knowledge to create an economy based on shared well-being and a healthy planet, starting right here in the Colorado Front Range.

Entire program series in collaboration with: Natural Capitalism Solutions, Savory Institute, Presidential Climate Action Project, Daniels College of Business, At the Epicenter, Change Finance, Institute for the Built Environment at CSU and New Resource Bank.
