Shifting Trillions



What is Shifting Trillions?

Shifting Trillions refers to the role of capital in moving as quickly as possible toward the world we all deserve.

All people have a right to clean air, land, water, and natural services. All individuals, communities, and economies are embedded in, and dependent upon, a larger web of ecological relationships. Our current industrial model erodes ecological relationships, destabilizes our climate, and undermines our shared right to a healthy, thriving planet.

Shifting Trillions is how we build something better. A world that supports the right of everyone to live in healthy communities, with just and regenerative economic systems, on a thriving planet.
