Changing the narrative around capitalism
and its relationship with the natural world.
The purpose of The Acadia Initiative is to help change the narrative around capitalism from the bottom-up. A model of emergent capitalism.
We will do this by focusing on market-based systems solutions of these global resource demands and urgencies:
Problem-solving wealth creation through mindful systems thinking and integration of:
Generative human and natural resources
Meaningful technology solutions
Distributed, generative and disruptive capitalism
The vision and values of George B. Dorr; Charles and Charles W. Eliot; and John D. Rockefeller, Jr., who made Acadia National Park possible, for thoughtful leadership and proactive capital in the 21st Century. Acadia National Park was the home to the People of the Dawnland first (the Wabanaki: the collective of Maliseet, Micmac, Passamaquoddy and Penobscot peoples).
To inform and inspire conscious and transformative thinking, actions and results at the intersection of capital, business, technology and nature.
Thoughtful leadership connects and informs
proactive capital and meaningful technologies.
A systems approach, seeing the interconnectedness of the whole and its parts.
