About the Site

Our mission is to connect people making awesome stuff happen and to inspire others to do the same.

While there are a lot of depressing stats about the environment, overpopulation, and broken food systems that can make us feel overwhelmed and doomed, there are also endless stories that are inspiring and hopeful — of individuals creating better systems, changing habits, and building momentum.

“We live in a world in which we need to share responsibility. It’s easy to say, ‘It’s not my child, not my community, not my world, not my problem.’ Then there are those who see the need and respond. I consider those people my heroes.’”

– Fred Rogers

When we come across these projects, stories, and art we often have a new perspective that sets the stage for change. This site aims to highlight and connect people doing awesome things, to inspire others, to show other points of view, and to make it easier for people to do the amazing things that just might be what our world needs.

It is much more likely that solutions will come from passionate, creative individuals than the familiar industrial systems and governments that created our current situation, and we want to help facilitate those solutions.

We don’t pretend to have all the answers. We’re just regular people trying to help make the world a better place. And we invite you to help us help each other.
