Our story

The seed of our fellowship is the belief that radical leadership is required to transform broken systems. We started meeting online to inquire into climate action, activism, wisdom and transformation, inspired by courageous leaders in these areas. 

We kept challenging ourselves and our ways of working to model the change we want to bring about. As we went along, we decided to manifest our collective intention in a co-created mission, principles and a fellowship structure that backs other courageous leaders by accelerating SDG17.



They form our constitution and guide how fellows must hold themselves as part of the group.

1. When considering us, we consider all too.

2. We co-create and self-organise as a community.

3. We share what’s on our minds and hearts.

4. We shine light on each other’s blindness to expand awareness.

5. We stand committed for the long-run.

6. We address systemic causes rather than symptoms.

7. We uphold what we say YES and what we say NO to.

8. We challenge ourselves and our ways of working to model the change we wanted to bring about.

9. Our vision is aligned with the SDGs, Codes for a Healthy Earth, 2040 and Pachamama Alliance.
