Areas of Work
School for Biocultural Leadership
We offer rigorous experiential learning programs, courses, and expeditions to empower emerging and accomplished biocultural leaders to go beyond the mess we’re inheriting to create the world we want.
Our programs fully engage mind, body and spirit and combine science, business and the arts.
We create conservation communities dedicated to engaging local and indigenous leaders in protecting and regenerating the rainforest, ocean, and desert ecosystems worldwide—home to the network of Geoversity campuses.
We are following innovating land and sea conservancy models for our Life Changer experiential learning programs, each with ecological and cultural diversity.
Applied Research and Design
We nurture breakthrough research, SDG strategies, and business solutions to meet social and environmental challenges through natural design and indigenous wisdom.
We provide services to international development agencies, indigenous authorities, government institutions and sustainability-oriented businesses; and co-develop communication tools for global impact.
