“In times of crisis, seemingly impossible ideas suddenly become possible."
We're living through a period of upheaval, the full scale of which is, as yet, uncertain. It has — or will — affect everyone; it has — or will — be everywhere. Generosity and inspiring acts of kindness are occurring alongside fear and unspeakable loss.
When we emerge from the pandemic — and we will — our world will have changed. Crisis does that: It opens up paths of action that were previously unimaginable. We have seen in real-time how our choices ripple across the world. We act now to guard the well-being of the most vulnerable, and this responsibility we have for each other is a good thing.
Knowing we will emerge from this, we must ask the question: How will we emerge? What form will the changed world take? At the Non-GMO Project, we envision a future where compassion, courage and innovation — the principles that already guide us through new challenges — continue to govern our actions, where we work to give each other the best we have to offer.
In the coming months, our staff will continue our work to build the world we want to live in and leave for our children. We'll be sharing that vision with you, exploring the many ways in which each of us can choose to act as an agent of positive change.
