• Thriving living systems create conditions conducive to supporting thriving living systems. If any system isin’t doing this, it needs to be redesigned. 

  • Planetary resources are finite. Human imagination, inspiration and collective ingenuity are infinite. The former need to be stewarded. The latter can - and must - be unleashed. 

  • Stakeholders are all with a stake in the future potential of a project / place. In otherwords, potential can not be realized without their meaningful and equitable participation - especially that of First Peoples. 

  • Change is made by our cumulative actions ('independence is a colonial construct'). 

  • Change doesn’t have to be hard (or slow), but it must start with changing our mindsets...our framing stories. Stories shape who we are, who we believe we can be, and what we can do together. When we change these, EVERYTHING else changes. 

  • We stand with Greta, Extinction Rebellion, Our Time, Zero Hour, and the growing legions of global youth blazing a new path forward...and not just Fridays, but EVERY. DAY. Lateral Agency is a collective commitment to dedicating our lives to designing a future that is thriving and equitable for all!

we live, work and play on the unceded indigenous territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh). With open hearts we seek to listen, to learn, and to do good work so we can - together - restore right relations and regenerate our capabilities to steward all that is local - now and for future generations.
