What is the vision of a finer future?
A vision for the future is emerging. Born of a new narrative, it says that humans are happiest when we are interconnected. Money matters and is a useful tool, but the health of our home and families matters more. Equity throughout society and resilience are better starting places for a global economy. We can, says this new vision, entrepreneur our way to a finer future.

Best Speaker the Sustainable Business Movement Has / – Raz Godelnik, Triple Pundit
“When I heard Hunter Lovins for the first time in 2006, I was left feeling like I’d just witnessed one of the best speakers the sustainable business movement has. To be frank, I thought her presentation was electrifying. Six years later I had the chance to listen to her on a Bard MBA event in New York and was happy to find that Lovins still rocks. Is it her profound knowledge? The loads of experience she has? Maybe the hat? I don’t know, but I do know that very few make the business case of sustainability in such a vivid and powerful way.”
