This day has been one of my most favourite of days. Today we made Chronart. 48 Chrononauts time travelled together into 2030 to make art out of time. We played seven hours of Chronaoke together with storytellers, artists, musicians, poets, and even the Decentralized Dance Party. I am vibrating from a love beam of radical hope. It is an honour of my lifetime to bear witness to so many transmissions from a shaded vision of our thriving future. I am in awe of the extent we are sourcing from the same collective well.

Over the coming days, we will share…


I woke up this morning with a dream: to create a 6-hour festival to celebrate Earth Day from the future. We’re inviting 48 speakers and performers to come together in less than 48 hours to share stories of how in 2030 we’ve transformed into a thriving civilization in harmony with all life.

Thursday 22nd April marks the 51st Earth Day. Following the success of the United Planet Earth Day Festival last year, we will experiment with a Clubhouse 2030 extravaganza. Last year we gathered over 100 speakers, performers and artists across 4 stages including Charles Eisenstein, Daniel Schmachtenberger, Janet Stone…


Nichol Bradford is a friend I deeply respect and am inspired by. This Forbes interview is a very clear portal into many of the most exciting transformations I also believe are underway during this Golden Decade.

I celebrate the heroines of our time such as Nichol. I have come to the belief that the biggest thing holding back humanity is a crisis of imagination and hope. Many no longer believe in the promise of the future. The Edelman Trust Barometer global survey reports 80% of ‘us’ believe the global system is broken and two-thirds of ‘us’ believe the future will…


This is a love letter from 2030. We did it. We transformed the entire story. I write from a world of abundance, peace, love and joy. We’ve created a planetary civilization in harmony with all life. We’ve completed what’s known as the Golden Decade. We are the United Planet. We are Gaians.

This is a relic of the future. You are an early member of the Transition Team. The superorganism that rose up and unlocked our collective potential and intelligence to birth the planetary civilization. You are living the greatest story ever told.

You are part of the creation of…


This week is the first anniversary of the launch of the UP Game. It has been a year of experimentation, envisioning and play. To celebrate this milestone I wanted to share a retrospective on what has unfolded, lessons learned and where we’re heading. This post forms part 2 of a 3 part series that highlights the past, present and future of United Planet. You’re welcome to read part one here.

Firstly, let me start by sharing what the United Planet Game is today. We are designing a game show where we gather leaders of systemic change to co-envision the future…


Today is the one-year anniversary of the birth of the UP Game. I decided to write a three-part celebration of the past, present and future of the United Planet Game this week. Starting by celebrating the past — I found a journal entry that I wrote this time last year. I never shared it with anyone. With all that unfolded that week of the launch of the first UP Game, I didn’t want to draw too much focus on the visions I had seen prior.

There are many lessons learnt over the year, but I’m pleased to share the principles…


Today would be my mother’s 72nd birthday. She died from cancer 4 years ago. I have been honouring her today in Ibiza with my daughter. Given the state of the world, I prayed to my mother this evening to ask if there was something meaningful to share. I then experienced a number of synchronistic events which led me to a piece I wrote on New Year's eve 2 years ago. The piece is highly vulnerable and personal. I didn't know who I was writing for, but, I hope you feel like I wrote it for you!

Language is a map for a thriving future. The stories we tell have power to transform ourselves and our planet. Hence, I am sharing 10 Golden Decade memes for 2021. I synthesized these from the collective intelligence of engaging with hundreds of systems change leaders over the last year with the United Planet Game. If these resonate with you please do share them. I also invite you to contribute your own favourite positive memes.


Today would be have been the 40th birthday of my dear friend, Sheetal Amte-Karajgi. However, Sheetal tragically died by suicide on 30th November. I am heartbroken at the loss of one of the most beautiful souls I have the honour of calling my family. Sheetal leaves behind a herculean legacy. She was at the helm of one of the most iconic institutions in India, The Maharogi Sewa Samiti — home to Anandwan — one of the first ‘Smart Villages’ in the world. The organization has been a pioneer in transforming the lives of 2.7 million people since it was founded…


Today is World Soil Day. I’ve been fascinated by soil for as long as I can remember. Soil health is a key pillar in planetary health. The UN estimates with the current destructive industrialized farming practices we only have 60 harvests left before our top soil is barren and unable to feed the planet. A third of the planet's soil is already acutely degraded and we are losing more than 30 soccer fields of soil every minute due to intensive farming.
