Can Nature thrive in an economy?

CRREAL is reimagining philanthropy in wildlife conservation. Together, we are exploring ways that all beings might share their abundance with one another so all can thrive as they are, where they are.

Robin Wall Kimmerer discusses this concept beautifully in her essay “The Serviceberry: An Economy of Abundance.” [LINK]

After you read the essay, add your thoughts to our conversation in a response below. A few possible prompts: What are ways we might be able to change our methods of exchange in the world so that no part of Nature needs to suffer as a part of it? Have you had any experiences with direct exchange with nature that you’ve learned from? What would your metrics of value be for nature-respecting forms of exchange? Are there people or places that you have seen start to reflect these kind of ideas?
