Greenprints focuses on a critical question: how can we create governance and legal systems that help us live within our ecological limits and nurture the Earth community?

This project has been created because–while we have ‘blueprints’ to document the design of building and engineering projects–we don’t yet have effective ‘greenprints’ for helping us construct the governance systems we need, to build Earth-centred human societies that can nurture the Earth community and flourish in a post-carbon, climate changed world.
