North American Leadership Summit
The North American Leadership Summit (NALS) took place August 20-23, 2020. This was a co-creative learning process culminating in a unique event that helped define the next steps in our evolution as continental leaders of Turtle Island. We aim to build a great people’s movement that can regenerate climate, land, and communities across the continent.
The planetary emergency asks all of us, and especially those with the capacity for leadership, to step into a new realm of heartfulness, understanding, solidarity, teaching, and effectiveness. By now, we’ve all been to plenty of meetings, workshops, and conferences, and some of us are discouraged. The Summit, though, employed experiential and expansive processes to transform not only our understanding of life on Earth, but our very beings as we came together for a campaign of regeneration.
We forged new connections between indigenous leadership, youth, the Divine Feminine, ethnic luminaries, and leading-edge knowledge carriers.

Building on the efforts of preliminary working groups, the Summit blended these gifts and experiences to forge meaningful and lasting connections. Next steps are to deploy those strengths to change public policy and private action in all regions.
