The Story

Upward Spirals' work creating tools for regenerative leaders needs the support of visionaries who see the opportunity to invest their resources to create deep social and environmental impact.

Our projects integrate sustainability, economics, and community to create the most leveraged and promising solutions to a confluence of global sustainability issues. Please consider contributing to our work creating the regenerative world our hearts know is possible.

Today we need people to support our first fundraiser, to share capacity building resources to complete our foundation phase in preparation for rapid growth. Supporters have an opportunity to provide vital leadership during the most important cultural transition in human history.

The funds we need now will equip us with the computers, video production equipment, and human resources to connect Upward Spirals' programs with more institutions like The Smithsonian, and to start developing a video library to increasingly make the Sustainable Living Expedition content available free online.

We envision, and are developing, a global network of holistic economic development centers using regenerative models and tools to systematically co-create a healthy planet, economy, and communities.

By empowering Upward Spirals to expand programs and create revenue streams, that in turn empower Impact Centers around the world, supporters exponentially magnify the impact of their investments, greatly accelerating the development of a regenerative economy.



Why it is vital we do this work now

The current global economy is based on imbalanced values and agreements that are corrosive to communities and the environment, and thus highly detrimental to those using it. A variety of factors indicate the old degenerative economy is in its final stages of decline, failing to serve the majority of the people using it, and devastating communities and nature as unsustainable resource consumption precipitates large systemic, societal, and environmental changes.

Our declining systems can be redesigned and replaced, and the need to do so is undeniable. If we unite, align, and support each other around our shared desire to live in a regenerative world, we can develop new ecologically and socially integral, life-honoring systems that can regenerate our communities and the environment.

It is vital that we prioritize systemic solutions over fixing symptoms. We need to build new regenerative, locally based, economies to replace the ones through which most people are primarily meeting their needs. This is the most important and effective solution possible towards creating a regenerative culture and restoring balance with nature.



How we will rapidly transition to a regenerative world

We can efficiently accelerate the development of a regenerative economy through freely supplying Impact Centers with regenerative business models, innovative organizational operating systems, impactful community-benefit programs, and effective resource sharing networks. Through developing and sharing an effective regenerative ‘operating system’, we’re making it easier and profitable for regenerative leaders to organize social benefit programs, and develop their local collaborative economy, benefiting themselves, their community, and the world.

We believe the social benefit organizations, community building programs, knowledge bases and tools we are creating, in the hands of a global network of regenerative economic development centers, is the greatest improvement to holistic, conscious leadership possible.



The primary benefits of success in this phase of expansion:

  • Sustainable solutions projects and communities getting more resources, awareness and new members
  • Regenerative organizations and project leaders supported with an increasing range of tools, knowledge, and support services
  • A more holistic and higher quality local economy, with shareable guides and models to help other communities replicate our successes
  • Deep ecological integrity through taking personal responsibility to create a regenerative world



If you believe in the importance and the opportunity of what we’re building, please support this vital work. Expanded budgets will enable us to work with more collaborators; to invest in hardware and software to leverage our time and magnify our reach; to acquire tools and materials to improve programs and reduce costs; and to connect with philanthropists and foundations.

We believe we are positioned to support an expansive regenerative movement that will create the highest benefit for all life. We seek, and are ready for those who are moved to help us build this vision for everyone.

Thank you so much for your dedication to our beautiful future.

To protect as much biodiversity as we can, we must help people transition to a sustainable way of life, and a regenerative relationship with the environment as quickly as possible.

The Catalyst Mission is our solution for how to systematically empower the world’s most impactful organizations with the models, guides, programs and plans they need to develop regenerative local economies.

Impact Centers (which include social enterprises, wellness and education centers, intentional communities, organic food producers and distributors, environmental educators, community organizers, permaculture and conservation projects), may be humanity’s best hope for creating the new economic, education, and food systems society needs.

We are accelerating their work by providing them with an effective organizational operating system; a set of models, plans, guides and tools that includes:

Regenerative Business Models

Strategic Expansion Plans

Sustainable Business Development Guides

Financial Strategies and Tools

Project Management Tools

Event Planning and Coordination Models

By integrating holistic eco-social values into powerful business systems and tools, and sharing them with the most impactful organizations, we are creating a positive feedback loop and exponential growth in all the regenerative systems needed to live in thriving collaborative communities.

By making it easy, efficient, and profitable to develop and coordinate regenerative local economies, we are massively expanding the number of organizations working effectively together to create an ecologically balanced and socially equitable economy.
