Velvet Frame’s mission is to realign human aspirations with the evolution of natural systems by helping individuals and organizations to conceptualize and develop an ecological identity.

The purpose of realignment is to step closer to true sustainability by encouraging people to acknowledge themselves as an integral, and equal part of the natural world.  The development of an ecological identity™ allows people to identify and position themselves as actors in complex ecosystems.

Principles for Collective ActionTM

Ecological Principles for Collective ActionTM (EPCA) is an interdisciplinary framework for mapping collective action problems across complex systems that accounts for emerging identities and shifting demographics.

The framework adapts the functions and flows of natural ecosystems to generate data-driven models for leadership and capacity building that can objectively “weigh” values and evaluate processes for decision making.

EPCA blends the insights of social and environmental ethics to enable changemakers to articulate vision and values, and frame narratives for change within organizations and institutions.

Welcome to Velvet Frame.

We instinctively seek an intimacy with nature that affirms our place in the world and connects us to other living beings. But the more we succeed in advancing our human aspirations and ideals, the less we defer to nature for guidance, purpose, and belonging.

Velvet Frame™ looks to natural ecosystems to understand and steward change. We believe in reviving our forgotten ecological identity™.

ElementalTM means seeking:

·       the core of a relationship or idea, stripping away the excess to reveal the smallest representative unit that truly matters

·       the inherent commonality between things that appear different on the surface

·       the complexity of simple structures and the simplicity of complex patterns

As humans, we have always embraced nature for inspiration, healing, and renewal.
