State bureaucracies, political administrations, and public institutions play a crucial role and hold responsibility on the path towards a regenerative and just society. 

Given the anthropogenic tipping points and the trajectory towards a 4 °C warming, we perceive the upcoming years as an unique opportunity and necessity to accelerate the transformative change of existing social practices, structures, and cultures. 

In this highly dynamic complexity, we support public and civil society actors in building new decision-making processes and architectures for forward-looking strategic action.

Public institutions often operate within path dependencies that maintain extractive practices and contribute to socio-ecological crises. Together, we work on critically questioning roles, policies and practices to address these interrelated patterns. Based on the concepts of “finite resources and planetary boundaries,” we develop future-oriented human-environment relationships.

Bureaucracies and public institutions play a significant role in shaping policies and implementing practices that have far-reaching impacts on society and the environment. Our work contributes to connecting short-term crisis responses with long-term systemic changes, prioritising regeneration and resilience in decision-making processes.

Traditional bureaucratic structures can be rigid and resistant to change. Through our work, we encourage public institutions to design their governance models and decision-making processes responsibly, inclusively, and equitably. To address the polycrisis with poly-responses, we design participatory processes with innovative democratic formats that avoid "participation-washing."

In hierarchically dominated structures, leadership roles hold particular importance. We support individuals in reflecting on their impact, moving away from ingrained patterns to promote a culture of critical thinking and collective action within their organizations. Our work establishes a practice based on accountability and the recognition of the interdependencies of all life.

Public servants who act in transformative ways are often confronted with working conditions that limit their potential to shape changes. We advocate for an open learning culture in the public sector to empower them as agents of change. As a founding member of the Creative Bureaucracy Festival, we promote adaptive approaches based on creativity, trust, and output legitimacy.
