FIXERS: New Leaders for Broken Times
We are now in the human-dominated Anthropocene Epoch: Meet the Adaptive Renewal pioneers
who fix our ailing cities, farms, ecosystems, and institutions in today’s climate of uncertainty.
Adaptive Renewal is the essential megatrend for today’s uncertain times, when we can’t rely on our economy, our institutions, or even our global climate to support our goals. Have you encountered any signs of Adaptive Renewal? Here are 3 key traits:
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 using what we already have (adapting for practicality) .
FIXERS tells success stories of Adaptive Renewal pioneers. It also advances the practice, synthesizing proven techniques into a quicker, easier way to regenerate businesses, NGOs, neighborhoods, regions, natural resources, or your career.
For the first time in human history, our natural, built, and socioeconomic environments are damaged and dysfunctional on a global level…converging into today’s perfect storm of political, terror, budget, and natural disaster crises. But a perfect storm of global renewal is approaching.
Is there an organization, city, region, or natural resource area you wish to revitalize, redesign, reposition, redevelop, or restore?
