HumansFirst Forward

There is no going back, we’re compelled to move forward.

Begun as a belief that we can do better. All evidence made it clear, a new era with significant and rapid change is upon us, yet we were not prepared. At a time requiring great change, creativity, and ingenuity, companies had lost the hearts and minds of their people.

HumansFirst Forward is an invite to join the solution creators. The foundation of continuous exploration and discovery through global engagement, with broadly diverse perspectives and experiences, will continue – growing commitment and partnership. Now it time to answer the call and move into action. Offering extensive research, learnings, and gifts of experience from members, out to the world through inspired programs and needed customization.

You are welcome here. You belong. Be the difference you want to see in the world. We are HumansFirst.

  1. Mike

    I was not able to attend Humans First this week. I am extremely excited on co-creating with you on Humans First Forward. I especially like the contribution side of it. Continued to be moved, touched, and inspired buy the humans I am engaging with in Humans First.

  2. In Chapter 14, Strategies for an Alternative Nation, Bill Mollison outlines the ethical basis upon which a Perma(ment)culture could be built. Above all, we’ve needed a simple means of reading natural systems and to communicate this new set of fundamental rules to those able (and/or entrusted) to do something about them.

    Today, the buzzword is ‘regenerative.’ Sadly, that is as vague and meaningless a term as sustainable, which belongs squarely among claims like, “the check is in the mail!” But, for those who are drawn into this Humans First circle, most of the vernacular is well established and appreciated. Remarkably, Covid is a temporary capstone and future backdrop against which we can make significant forward progress overall.

  3. This is exciting Mike,
    I’ve had a lot of experience and various roles, nothing hits harder than not feeling of value…anywhere.
    Humanity is something I hold in high regard and honour completely. I am passionate about people and do spread the dignity every chance I get.
    I am happy to help with what I am able… Let me know… I’m here in Canada, actively helping every day! Love what you are doing and so fortunate to know you! Thank you and this is fabulous!
