You have no idea what your legacy will be. Your legacy is what you do every day. Your legacy is every life you've touched, every person whose life was either moved or not. It's every person you've harmed or helped. That's your legacy.”

The universe is made of stories, not of atoms.”

This is y/our Legacy Project, and the Legacy Project of our time. Here's how you can Connect, Create, Change with us.

The world changes all the time – sometimes for the better, sometimes not. But deep change, in the form of transformation, is something different. In the words of Mark Twain, it's the difference between a lightning bug and lightning.

The Legacy Project's work empowers generations, grounded by the land, to #ChangeTheStory for the wellbeing of lives, communities, and the planet.

We all live our own life story, and those stories are rich and important. But we need to connect the dots. Too often we get stuck in isolated little stories that fail to sustain us or effect real change. At this moment in history, we need to bridge to a renewed, bigger story created across generations and in the context of our place in the world. #ChangeTheStory

The Legacy Project is a systems research, education, and innovation group. We are the core team working on 7-Generation GTB (Greater Tkaronto Bioregion). Two decades of research and development have led to this work. It's deep systems complexity work, using intergenerational and place-based dynamics, for social regeneration (generations in community) and ecological regeneration (community in bioregion).

We're interconnecting people, places, and projects to each other for shared purpose; facilitating collective learning; fostering collaborations for systemic impact; and embodying processes and structures that build community resilience.

To create a pathway forward, we must move through dreams to legacy. Can dreams change the world? Just think of those four famous words, "I have a dream…" A dream is the front end of a legacy.

Legacy is a connection across time Legacy is not a trivial thing. As a profound connection across time, across generations, it can be either a burden or a gift. It's where the power is. Our legacy – the things we do and say and think and aspire to every day – is creating the future right now. We don't take that power/responsibility seriously enough. Legacy, fueled by dreams, is your ability to create meaningful, lasting impact.

LegacyCubed is about multiplying impact. It's legacy to the power of three…

Your Life in the context of the People and Place around you.

Your Generation, Three Generations Before you, and Three Generations After you for a 7-Generation perspective that sparks bigger thinking and action.

For Young, Old, and Everyone in between.

Bringing together Past, Present, and Future or, in other words, Memories, Opportunities, and Dreams.

Exploring Connection and Meaning across Time.

As the stylized letter "g" in the Legacy Project's logo suggests, blaze your Path, stay Rooted, never stop asking Questions.

Expand your ability to Believe and Do and Think.

Grow Information into Knowledge and ultimately into Wisdom.

Make the most of what you're Given, what you Bring into Being, and what you Give Back – for Yourself, Others, and the World.

That's legacy to the power of three – LegacyCubed. The Legacy Project empowers all ages to Connect, Create, Change.

Learn about creating a Legacy Project. The big idea is to translate what you're about into your own multidimensional "legacy project" that multiplies what you're already doing and gives it more impact.


Be the change

Listen to this message from global regeneration leader Joe Brewer to the generations in the Greater Tkaronto Bioregion (GTB).

7-Generation GTB, mobilizing intergenerational and place-based dynamics, is the heart of the Legacy Project's work. It's glocal – the local Greater Tkaronto Bioregion connected into the global. Based on earth systems science, a bioregion (not cities, communities, villages) is the smallest actionable scale reflecting the planetary system. If we can regenerate enough large-landscape bioregions around the world, we may be able to help regenerate the entire Earth. Organizing ourselves into bioregions may be the difference that makes a difference in terms of navigating an uncertain and changing world.

We have a selection of videos that are a great way to understand the big ideas underlying the 7-Generation GTB work.
