ECO - GOVERNANCE
Applying the reality of our ecological interconnectedness to our local and global governing systems
The only legitimate purpose of governance is to protect and cultivate the health and vitality of the planet and all its inhabitants for generations to come.
The material presented here offers an initial framework for a transition from a governance system rooted in a mindset of separateness and the domination of Life, to a system of governance rooted in a mindset of interconnectedness and the healing and sacred stewardship of Life. The work is inspired by and dedicated to the Global White Lion Protection Trust.

Democracy and Beyond
Deconstructing Democracy is the first part of an evolving process that seeks to unravel some of the myths and flaws of the democratic system. It is published on this website and is available for download as a PDF in order to contribute to new ways of thinking about the history and future of governance.
The second part of the exploration is the work of Co-creating Eco-Governance. It is not sufficient to resist that which is not working. For healing and transformation to occur, it is essential that we articulate a new form of governance that responds wisely to the challenges and opportunities of our time, while integrating new knowledge and wisdom in life-enhancing ways.
Co-creating Eco-Governance is a work in progress. Eco-Governance is founded on the premise that the only legitimate purpose of governance is to cultivate the health and vitality of the planet and all its inhabitants for generations to come. Inspired by whole-systems healing wisdom, Eco-Governance seeks to offer a framework, organizing principles, and infrastructures for a new and healthy way of organizing ourselves as a species.
