Helping human systems create
Our world is becoming more complex, and rapid changes in our social, economic and natural environments are becoming more difficult to predict and respond to. The Aurora Now Foundation helps individuals and their organizations learn about the interconnection between a variety of local and global challenges facing us. More importantly, we provide knowledge and skills for dealing with these interconnected, complex issues.
We help people understand that although humanity is
challenged with complex problems, solutions themselves need not be complicated,
just comprehensive. These solutions can be realized by gaining an awareness
of our capacity for conscious choice and effectively using our creativity

a better future for yourself, your family and your community. You've
come to the right place.
ACTION RESEARCH: Our research informs the design and delivery of our programs, and our programs provide the empirical results that inform the research we present in the U.S. and internationally. Focusing on "systems thinking" and the new sciences applied to social systems, we help people outside of academic and research environments learn how to understand and manage complex issues.
