OURS ARE CRITICAL TIMES
There is an urgency to mobilising capital for good.
We believe that the convergence of three major trends: mindfulness; face-to-face convening; and capital for good, presents an unheralded opportunity for us come together to co-create, co-design and co-operate for greater positive social and environment impact. Our purpose is to convene, catalyse, and grow the impact ecosystem at both the individual and collective level in the Asia Pacific to exponentially leap towards a transformational economy.
A transformational economy that is steeped in the practice of care for people and our planet.
OUR THEORY OF CHANGE
The impact ecosystem is broad and growing. It is relatively new and as such requires a consistent meeting of hearts and minds both face-to-face, and through digital channels. Through convening, sharing learning, co-designing solutions, developing at an individual and collective level, and collaborating as broadly as possible we can fertilise, cross-fertilise, activate and accelerate the ecosystem for significant growth and impact.
