|About||We believe that ideas have enormous power and that humans are capable of changing failing ideas in order to turn our planet toward life. www.smallplanet.org|
At the Small Planet Institute, we seek to identify the core, often unspoken, assumptions and forces — economic, political, and psychological — now taking our planet in a direction that as individuals none of us would choose. We disseminate this deeper understanding of root causes.
Living Democracy, Feeding Hope
To further an historic transition: a worldwide shift from the dominant, failing notion of democracy — as something done to us or for us — toward democracy as a rewarding way of life: a culture in which citizens infuse the values of inclusion, fairness and mutual accountability into all dimensions of public life. We call this Living Democracy.
People on every continent are creating living democracies as they discover their power to remake societal rules and norms to serve their widely shared values. We support this historic awakening through collaborative public education efforts with colleagues worldwide and through our own books, articles, websites, speeches, and other media.
Together and separately, Frances Moore Lappé and Anna Lappé speak at conferences, universities, to citizen organizations, associations, and green and sustainable living festivals to spread a message of hope for our planet.
