FIXERS: New Leaders for Broken Times
Meet the pioneers who fix ailing cities, farms, ecosystems, & institutions in today’s climate of uncertainty.
Learn how to attract Fixers to your area, support them, grow your own, or become one yourself.
Today’s most effective leaders use Adaptive Renewal when they can’t rely on the economy, their government, or even our global climate to support their revitalization efforts. Here are 3 traits of Adaptive Renewal:
1) New technologies that turn one-time renewal projects into flexible, ongoing programs (adapting for resilience) ;
2) Guerrilla tactics that bypass the need for up-front financial or institutional support (adapting for speed) ;
3) Repurposing, reusing, and/or reconnecting assets to revitalize with what we already have (adapting for practicality) .
You’ll enjoy stories of solo & institutional Fixers (magic together!) using 3 types of fixes: project, program, and hybrid.
FIXERS reveals new, simpler ways to regenerate organizations, cities, regions, nature, and careers.
An emerging style of leader–public & private–grows where others fear to tread: in “hopeless” situations. Their competitive advantage? Fixing a world that is more broken—environmentally, economically, & politically—than ever before in human history (a period scientists call the Anthropocene Epoch).
Today’s perfect storm of crises is spawning a global tsunami of innovative, job-creating renewal, as Fixers remake our planet, and our future.
New Service: Regional Renewal R&D
Companies, foundations, local governments: Want to catalyze revitalization in your region? Many intransigent environmental, economic, agricultural, job-creation, & social challenges can only be addressed regionally, where there is often no effective governance.
Examples include watersheds, the Caribbean, the South Pacific, Chesapeake Bay, the Great Lakes, etc. REconomics Lab is a private “think/do tank” of foundations, universities, NGOs, banks, corporations, and national agencies. We’ll help you catalyze a regional “restoration economy” that regenerates distressed urban, rural, and natural areas at the right scale. Join REconomics Lab: It’s R&D for fixing our world. Learn More.
