www.berkana.org -- Co-founded in the early 1990s by Utah resident Margaret Wheatley, the Berkana Institute works in partnership with a rich diversity of people around the world who strengthen their communities by working with the wisdom and wealth already present in their people, traditions and environment. Berkana and our partners share the clarity that whatever the problem, community is the answer. We prepare for an unknown future by creating strong and sustainable relationships, by wisely stewarding the earth’s resources, and by building resilient communities and teams. We rely on the belief that human beings are caring, generous, and want to be together. Each of our initiatives is based on a coherent, in-depth theory of how life organizes in cooperative, generous, and interdependent systems -- work we’ve developed with hundreds of colleagues over many years of dialogue, think tanks and practical applications in all kinds of settings.
