VOL teaches an approach to change that supports individuals, students, and groups & organizations to Exist Differently.

How does VOLs Work Facilitate Existing Differently? 


The last 400 years have created amazing technological advancements and changed the earth’s climate in ways that make our world increasingly unstable. This lack of balance is produced by systems, institutions, and ways of existing that prioritize our material needs and neglect our non-material needs. To restore balance with each other and the earth, we need to exist differently. We need systems and institutions that prioritize material and non-material needs equally.


Visionary Organizing involves experimenting to create practices and systems that meet our material and non-material needs. Visionary Organizing results in communities, institutions, and organizations that Exist Differently than we have for the last 400 years because these practices and systems are equally committed to our material and non-material needs. 

Through media, workshops, classes, trainings, and consulting, Visionary Organizing Lab teaches Visionary Organizing to three audiences:

  • Individuals who want to transform the communities

  • Groups, organizations, and workplaces that want to create dignity affirming cultures, practices, and systems

  • Students who want to take the skills and components of Visionary Organizing out into the world

What might Existing Differently look like?
