“By the late twentieth century, our time, a mythic time, we are all chimeras, theorized and fabricated hybrids of machine and organism; in short, we are cyborgs. The cyborg is our ontology; it gives us our politics. …

The Boundless Roots report is out! You can download it here.

March 21st marked the equinox — we found the first week of spring in the Northern Hemisphere a fitting time for the launch of our report. With the end of our two-year mandate and funding by the KR Foundation we want to share our most juicy takeaways.

Climate change and biodiversity loss is the single biggest threat to life on this planet. Science tells us we only have a few years to implement the radical changes needed to mitigate this crisis. Boundless Roots brought together diverse, sustainable lifestyle practitioners…

As we’re already two months into the new year, we are taking the opportunity to look back and celebrate all that happened in our community in 2020 and share our first ideas on how the future might look like for us as our funded time of incubation is coming to an end.

As we begin our reflection, we want to acknowledge not only how different this space was this year. The pandemic gave a different resonance to our work. You can find an attempt at making sense of Covid-19 at the beginning of May 2020 from one of our community…

With community organiser Mary Stevens and Citizen Assembly Facilitator Claire Mellier, we spoke about the importance of trust, good facilitation and inner work that allow us to fruitfully engage with polarities.

Thank you for joining our conversation today! Could both of you summarise for us your approach to sustainable lifestyle change? Who and what does your work focus on and what is your theory of change behind it?

Mary: I have a background as a systems practitioner and my approach depends on which perspective I take when I answer that question. If I answer for Friends of the Earth then…

With the White House being stormed, controversies about the Covid-19 vaccines and a looming economic crisis, this current moment is an awakening moment in terms of polarization. While they are becoming more pronounced and visible in some places, others are learning how to build bridges and work with them. We invited two Boundless Roots members, Sophy Banks and Solène Aymon, who belong to different generations of changemakers, to talk about the polarities they are working with and ended up speaking about inclusivity, burnout culture and the importance of grief for healthy social movements.

Thank you for joining our conversation today…

At Boundless Roots we kicked off in June a new inquiry cycle around the topics of power, meaning, change & contradictions. In this article, we invite you to dive below the surface with us and see how the Iceberg Model can help us to examine systems from different angles, using the example of our inquiry around healthy power.

Current Inquiries

During our last inquiry cycle (read more here), four themes emerged that we will explore together in the next months. These are themes that we felt are key to understanding the challenges we are facing and unlocking more radical change:

  • Healthy power…

Boundless Roots is an open community of sustainable living practitioners convening around shared inquiries to increase their impact with more radical and ambitious actions. In June, our 37 members, calling from 12 countries, kicked off a new cycle of inquiries. We asked them what they are currently struggling with when it comes to their work. You’ll probably find yourself in their answers.

Our members span diverse fields of practice from NGOs, environmental movements, decentralised communities and foundations to consumer goods, UN organisations, corporates, major news agencies, educational institutions and faith-based organisations. To get a sense of where we are as…

With our second thread of inquiry we explored the topic of power from June 2019 to February 2020. Since then, the potency and awareness of these ideas has radically increased and changed. We are taking this moment as an opportunity to reflect before we dive into exploring our thoughts in the light of the latest developments.

At Boundless Roots, we engage in action inquiries to address the challenge of radical changes in society that are required in response to the magnitude, urgency and scope of the climate crisis. Together we explore the underlying question: How can we create the conditions…
