The work of Bank of Nature

Who's on the job?

Let’s skip to the end. Bank of Nature is up and running and whatever hurdles we jumped to achieve operations are well behind us.

Now, we’re doing the work.

We are making nature. We are a nature proxy. We have big money partners and we’re working independently of traditional industry and government.

Who is going to work at Bank of Nature? What will be the focus of the job?

What departments are actively fulfilling our mission?

Join our design initiative

We’re designing a safer alternative path through financial stewardship and away from financial speculation that compromises efforts to address the climate crisis.

The pitch for Bank of Nature:
A voice for nature
A proxy for nature
An act of global co-creation
To create endgame sustainability
Within a two-way human-nature partnership
That is interactive, not extractive.

Bank of Nature is not a bank and offers no banking services. It is a program of Cape Cod Center for Sustainability, a 501c3 nonprofit. 

Thank you to Arizona State University and its Center for Science and the Imagination for the fellowship support.
