Abundance is the goal, sustainability is just the path.

A spontaneous Graham Calder quote from Day one of the PDC.

Natural systems are abundant. They produce a surplus. Squirrels, for example, only eat about 15% of the nuts they store away. The rest become compost or oak trees.

Sustainability implies just getting by without depleting our resources. It’s just a start; it’s not our ultimate purpose.

Abundance gives us extra resources so we can create art and culture, have healthy relationships, have choices, build strong communities.

By applying the lessons learned from natural systems, we can create abundance too.
