What we do

“There were some people that had good intentions and they created the plastic bag and they started burning fossil fuels and they came up with a car. These weren’t monsters; they were inventors that in that specific time made a lot of sense, and now it’s time to rethink that.” – Cyrill Gutsch, CEO of Parley for the Oceans.

AND WE DO JUST THAT – As part of the fast growing global Impact Hub network of impact entrepreneurs and innovators with more than 24,500 members in more than 100 cities worldwide with roots in Soweto and London, our purpose is to build a new economy. One that works for all where impact is the norm, based on regenerative life-systems and non-extractive.

HOW WE DO IT.

Our work uses an ecosystem approach because the complex issues our society faces cannot be solved alone. They ask for collaboration. 
Our current 4 ecosystems are focused around the themes: Food, Circularity, Inclusion and Fashion. We have selected these impact areas based on relevance within our local/regional context, demonstrated innovation through impact entrepreneurs active in our community, and how they advance multiple SDGs. As we call for a new economy, one that is based on regenerative life-systems and non-extractive, we need to move beyond utilitarian and transactional networks into the art of building healthy social ecologies.
