framework for enlightened innovatioN

ECI is founded on the belief that meeting our present challenges requires deliberate disconnection from, and reexamination of traditional modes of innovation. Our primary objective is for participants to return to their work focused on harnessing the powerful capability of humans to design our future guided by a framework that prioritizes:

  1. compassion for one another,
  2. application of the golden rule,
  3. connection to the natural world, and
  4. cooperation and collaboration across our increasingly connected planet.

This will be initiated through immersion in nature, as ECI brings innovators with a diverse range of experiences, backgrounds and perspectives into the coastal forests of Elk, California to reimagine a sustainable future.
