2020 Virtual
Leaders on Purpose CEO Summit


art and design iS A cross-cultural language for systemic change.

To transform our collective capacity and create a harmonic future we must first envision it.


During the Leaders On Purpose Summit, 14 multidisciplinary creators from the Design Science Studio translated the (r)Evolutionary ideas discussed into ART. 

Together, they wove a tapestry, telling the story of the powerful commitments to put Purpose before Profit.

We invite you to peak into the work that was created at the Summit by scrolling down and exploring how by changing the narrative we can change the collective story.

long vision


The world seems to be divided amongst those who believe that Purpose and Planet comes before Profit and those who think the opposite. You are in the former group, we honor you. We need more of you. And we also recognize that acting on this commitment to adapt is a complex route to navigate.



 Partnerships between organization, artists and institutions will enable a path forward as we realign our values with Nature, tell her story and rethink how we operate as a species.

Working in silos won't get us there.


The time is ripe for collaborating as an eco-system, moving at the speed of trust.


Together, we will find a visionary way to move towards an equitable future that works for all.

"It is now highly feasible to take care of everybody on Earth at a higher standard of living than any have ever known. It no longer has to be you or me. Selfishness is unnecessary. War is obsolete. It is a matter of converting our high technology from WEAPONRY to LIVINGRY."
