We believe regeneration and justice across all facets of society is needed to create the bold and beautiful world that our hearts know is possible.
We aim to be net positive as a business, incorporating regenerative, inclusive and compassionate practices, and supporting regenerative movements through all we do.
Ensuring that the stories we tell are generative, not destructive; empowering not disenfranchising. This helps us decide which projects to take on and shapes how we approach the narrative.
Wholeheartedly and courageously stepping up to meet the challenges of our time, we harness the full power of storytelling to enable new leadership for a new paradigm.
By acknowledging that we are part of an ecosystem, not an egosystem, we aim to generate and maximise value, benefit and abundance for as many stakeholders as possible.
Stories should be owned and shared by those who are living them. Democratising storytelling means disrupting traditional systems of power and influence to create a more inclusive and just narrative.
Recognising that the complex, entrenched and interdependent ‘system of systems’ we all exist in requires collaborative, non-linear and story-driven approaches to dismantle and rebuild.
Channelling surplus resources and our skills into causes and movements we care about and that can leverage storytelling for systems change.
Setting higher standards of excellence and sustainability for business
To shift global systems and culture for the better, and redefine what it means to be ‘successful‘, we have to be prepared to put our values where our mouths (and bottom lines) are and build more inclusive businesses.

2. Reducing Energy Usage
Avoiding unnecessary energy usage where we can and improving energy efficiency where we can’t.
3. Increasing Renewable Energy
Using clean, renewable energy sources wherever we can and offsetting any fossil fuel usage where we can’t.
4. Carbon Sequestration
Supporting Nature-Based Solutions (NBS) to remove warming gases from the atmosphere, especially projects that increase soil carbon from regenerative farming and restoration of forests and wetlands.
5. Community Participation
Providing climate action initiatives with storytelling support, and continuing to participate in Climate Strike activities, including active membership of UNFCCC’s Paris Committee for Capacity Building network.
6. Government Legislation
Supporting contributions to develop more positive and ambitious policies, legislations and climate action in Australia. This includes public submission and communications in support of the Climate Change (National Framework for Adaptation and Mitigation) Bill.
