Our experience over 40 years at CERES has shown us that the first step towards creating a healthy Earth and culture is to repair people’s sense of separation from nature and each other.

This approach is deeply grounded in the theory of systems change. By reconnecting people to their own deeper values, a sense of belonging and connection to nature, we can create important changes in both systems and how we behave.

We will not just provide you with a report – we will activate any findings and create real change on a community level through providing education and training to support it.
