The life of our dreams lays between our connection to each other and our connection to our Place.
- Amelia Tracy, Founder

Conducive is led by women who believe in the power of environmental restoration and climate change adaptation as a means to build a resilient and vibrant future for our children. Just 50yrs from now, we are not guaranteed a habitable planet.

Climate change gives us both the urgency and the opportunity to rethink social, environmental and economic challenges. Our mission is to:

  1. Create places that uphold natural and cultural heritage;

  2. Protect biodiversity;

  3. Redevelop existing properties because it is the most sustainable, albeit often more expensive, kind of development;

  4. Design careers developing resilience to climate change;

  5. Create business leadership rooted in eco-literacy and environmental stewardship;

  6. Build places where people can experience what it feels like to lead a healthy, climate-beneficial life.

“Creating conditions conducive to life is not optional; it’s a rite of passage for any organism that manages to fit in here over the long haul.” -Janine Benyus, founder, Biomimicry 3.8

Because we know environmental issues are deeply connected to many other problems in our world, we believe in building a new paradigm.

"Old paradigm: Climate change is primarily a consequence of elevated greenhouse gas emissions, largely from the burning of fossil fuels.

New paradigm: Climate change is a consequence of global ecological destruction, especially of soils, soil biota, above-ground flora and fauna, and bodies of water; including disruptions of carbon, water, and energy cycles."- Biodiversity for a Living Climate

And with this new paradigm, we can begin to become empowered to connect the various parts of our lives that feel unrelated, give ourselves permission to understand our inherent whole and worthiness, and to use these sensations of alive-ness to do the work of magnetizing our communities toward greater prosperity, abundance and harmony with this Planet.
