How you can
We invite everyone to read through our Proposal and discuss it with friends and colleagues. If it resonates with you then please consider helping us propagate it, in whatever ways seem appropriate. If you have concerns or suggestions for improvement, please let us know. We are releasing this vision into the wild and relying largely on the good will and energy of others to help it flourish. Crowd-sourcing is the only practical option to make this work.
You can download the Proposal (with explanatory notes) and share it with others in your community by clicking here.
You can also download a sheet of Aspen Proposal contact cards to print and share by clicking here.
For people that would like to start their own conversations about the Aspen Proposal we have created a short guide with a number of suggestions regarding the principles and techniques that have worked for us. You can download a copy of that by clicking here.
If you would like to help us financially, you can contribute to our Go Fund Me account at: gofundme.com/f/describing-a-sustainable-future
We now offer the option for donors of $21 or more, to pick the geographic location for us to drop a Facebook ad. Any nation, state, province or city in the English-speaking world where Facebook operates is a potential target. The ad will run for 7 days and be seen by 500-3000 people and will usually generate between 50 and 200 visits to the website. Learn more on the GoFundMe page above.
Some of you may already be involved in efforts to address the social, environmental and economic problems we currently face. If so, you might find the Aspen Proposal useful as a platform from which to backcast a pathway from today to this distant future. For some problems and issues, new approaches might be revealed that otherwise might have been overlooked. If you find new approaches, please share them.
