We see the Ecological Transition eBook series as accelerating the adoption of local sustainable agriculture and related skills. By documenting interviews with experts and visionaries in the field, associated projects, and the experiences of the project participants, the eBook serves as both an archiving and outreach tool. It also can serve as a “how to” for those contemplating similar projects and as a potential revenue stream for the projects involved.

We have supported client events since the early ‘90s, concentrating on delivering the knowledge presented at these events. The events were held by leading knowledge-based organizations to include The World Trade Institute, The Bookings Institution, The World Bank, The Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, The National Endowment for Democracy (NED), The Center for International Private Enterprise (CIPE), The National Governors Association, the Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS), The Women’s Learning Partnership (WLP), and the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS).
We have captured and processed media from hundreds of events, with speakers ranging from policy experts and policy makers worldwide to the President of the United States. This experience has given us an in-depth understanding of how media can be presented in an interactive and enjoyable way to transfer knowledge. The eBook format allows us to leverage that understanding.
