Ideas for Change
I have a big goal. A massive goal. I want to see the world repaired, every single ecosystem regenerated or recreated where it was totally lost. I want our planet to be in the best damn shape we can possibly leave it in for our future generations. “Be the change you want to see in the world” keeps ringing in my head. These are the changes I want to see…but how? I feel so tiny and the challenge so large, so I started a list of things I felt might kick start the change. I believe they only scratch the surface, but I have to start somewhere.
- Share my ideas and passion to anyone who will listen. Establish a movement /tribe. Gather all those like-minded people into one place online to share ideas and create actions.
- Develop the most amazing resource rich website ever to support others to be part of the change. Include themes such as rewinding, permaculture, beyond sustainable farming, fundraising, how to volunteer, how to establish a rewild group and many, many more. Have case studies, academic papers, practical instructions, guidance materials. Links to seed banks, other service offerings that support our change. A place for shared contribution, learning and support.
- Establish trial sites across the world and develop case studies and videos that show all the stages from start to finish and demonstrate what can be achieved.
- Establish Rewilders Inc – an international not-for-profit that provides consulting services and advice, assist with developing grant applications, implement restoration and rewilding projects. A company that attracts the best of the best. The big thinkers. A company that literally changes the world – one project at a time.
So, now to get from aspirational to actual. Not quite sure yet how to do that but change has to start somewhere and my personal journey starts here.

i have the “what” – the “how” will find a way.
