Vision and Values

Our vision is to inspire greater human potential through sustainability learning, sharing, practice and replication.

We do this through practical and appropriate application of leading sustainability thinking in communities in South Africa. Our focus is on enterprise development, community sustainability and adaptive strategies in a changing climate with specific application in the following areas: rainwater harvesting, farming and gardening, traditional knowledge, earth based construction and technologies for sanitation and energy.

To achieve our vision we:

  • Learn, constantly, from global and local thinking and experience. We apply solutions on the ground, live with them, and foster these ideas until they are robust and replicable.
  • Embrace the power of both individual and collective creativity, integrating different views and systems to inform and inspire greater potential.
  • Build resilience, because innovation requires adaption, courage, integrity, agility, determination and resourcefulness.
