Changing the capitalism narrative
and its relationship with the natural world.
We have been in a relationship with the planet which lacks reciprocity on the part of us humans. The time has come when that imbalance in relationship is in an urgent need of re-calibration. Capitalism is at the core of this re-calibration.
The capitalist system needs disruption, a re-connection to nature and people, an emergent model of capitalism. Such a transformed, bottom-up and generative system of capitalism is one where we all belong, benefit and co-create wealth.
A bottom up practice of capitalism is not new or profound. We need only go back decades, not centuries, to rediscover and put them into practice through a modern-day approach, leadership, technologies and capital structure. This would be a process of rediscovering practices of capitalism in a present-day form that have successfully built businesses, communities and societies in the past.
We call this emergent capitalism. The Acadia Initiative has been created to address this need.
