Global Catalyst, League of Intrapreneurs
Environmental Defence Canada’s Green Champion of the Year and winner of the Spirit of Lord Michael Young Award, Marjorie Brans has obsessively wondered: “Can any type of market economy be reconciled with deep care for the planet and all of its creatures?” Seeking an elusive answer, she has hunted for clues on five continents in multinational corporations, venture capital funds, tiny social businesses, and charities. To recruit and train fellow explorers for the quest, she co-founded four nonprofits that meet at the intersection of economic, social, cultural, and environmental transformation and is now working full-time on COVID humanitarian response. Despite their tired feet, Marjorie and her co-travelers suspect the answer is “yes.”
