"We can't think about social, economic and environmental conditions as separate challenges. They are interconnected and interdependent parts of a larger system of life support. We need fresh thinking and broader approaches to world challenges. Only systemic solutions solve systemic problems."

ABOUT ECOTRUST: Ecotrust seeks a broader understanding of the intimate relationship between the human condition and the health of all living systems, and its mission is to inspire fresh thinking that creates economic, social and environmental well-being. Ecotrust's role is to serve as a think-tank that identifies deep innovation, and then it seeks to turn those ideas into proof-of-concept realities. For nearly 20 years, Ecotrust has used this approach to convert $60 million in grants into more than $300 million in capital for local people, businesses, and organizations from Alaska to California. Ecotrust's many innovations include co-founding the world's first environmental bank, starting the world's first ecosystem investment fund, creating a range of programs in the fisheries, forestry, food and farm sectors, and developing new scientific and information tools to improve social, economic and environmental decision-making. Ecotrust works locally in ways that promise hope abroad, and it takes inspiration from the wisdom of Native and First Nations. More on the Web at www.ecotrust.org.
