Giving Compass’ Take:
• Deb Nelson at Medium highlights Integrated Capital Fellows (ICI) as they explore how to activate capital to create lasting, positive change while building connection and community in the economy.
• How is your organization following the practices of a “regenerative” economy?
• Here’s an article on rethinking the way we give for a regenerative economy.
A new clarity is emerging, one that recognizes that the stewardship of money includes a duty to the greater whole. This clarity has engendered an entirely new form of activism, one in which money is used creatively as a powerful tool to improve the world. Inspired by this conviction, we’re working with visionary wealth holders and financial activists to pioneer better ways to activate the positive potential of money.
Last November, fellows of our Integrated Capital Institute (ICI) met for five days at Paicines Ranch near the Salinas Valley in California. Paicines Ranch is distinctive because its owners practice environmental conservation and regenerative production. Its operating principles include biodiversity, water cycling, nutrient cycling, and use of an effective energy cycle while producing food, fuel, and fiber. Fellows had the opportunity to walk the land with ranch owner Sallie Calhoun and learn about regenerative agriculture and soil health. The natural environment of the ranch enriched conversations about how we can collectively move the economy from one that is extractive to one that is regenerative.
