Dear Friend of BFI,
At this urgent moment — when the failure of politics continually dominates the headlines — we invite you to join us in exploring far more effective ways of addressing the interconnected challenges facing humanity.
Buckminster Fuller devoted much of his life to demonstrating the power of an alternative to politics. He called this comprehensive anticipatory design science, which, in typically precise fashion, he defined as:
“...the effective application of the principles of science to the conscious design of our environment in order to help science make the Earth’s finite resources meet the needs of all humanity without disrupting the ecological processes of the planet.”
We believe this way of thinking is more important than ever. Become a member of the BFI. We need your thinking, your participation, and your experience.
“Design science is committed to new forms rather than political reform,” Bucky said.
BFI identifies, supports, and promotes real-world projects and initiatives that demonstrate the urgent need for comprehensive problem-solving. The annual Fuller Challenge prize, our educational programs, and our community engagements are all designed to foster whole-systems understanding and strategies.
Please help accelerate this work. Become a member or donate to the BFI today.
As a member, you’ll gain access to our new members-only online community... more details in our next email!
Thank you for all you do. We look forward to working with you on behalf of all of humanity.
Amanda Joy Ravenhill
