About us

Inspire resilient development through community engagement with nature and science.

“Over the next decade or two, society has a window of opportunity to radically redefine our relationship with the planet to reduce risk of dangerous global changes that could otherwise seriously degrade Earth’s life-support systems.”
– The Ecological society of America

the problem

The world is overwhelmed by the climate crisis.
As citizens with agency, is our responsibility to understand our own individual ecological footprint, but we don’t know where to start.

You can’t be what you can see, and in today’s urban settings it is nearly impossible to imagine sustainable & resilient systems.

our vision

We are building a global network of urban oases bringing together local community members, scientists, artists, musicians, innovators, entrepreneurs, and translational storytellers who believe in the potential of collective action to improve planetary health.

a self sustaining non-profit model

We have chosen a self sustaining non-profit model where 100% of all profit will be reinvested back into our mission to inspire resilient development and spread ecological education.

By building a model that generates revenue while engaging in community development we remove our reliance on outside capital. This allows us the necessary stability to maintain the integrity of our mission and have significant impact in our community over time.
