Dana Darwin ~ Founder of Platform One Foundation Charitable Trust

One of the greater challenges for both the individual and groups of human beings today, is to find a way to organize ourselves to plan and build a successful business, or community initiative and (if viable) actually make it happen - every time, with easy to use templates.

Dana Darwin, originally from Canada, now domiciled in NZ is a Founder of Platform One Foundation Charitable Trust, which is the umbrella organisation that supports the platform network of villages. He is also a Core member of a NZ based global Person-to-Person network actively developing and implementing a bottom up system model of organisation for businesses and communities. Bottom up, means from the grass roots up.

Dana is actively engaged with many organisations including Solar Industries Association, Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority, Auckland City Council, and closely aligned and working with a large NZ based group of companies and business professionals delivering positive results in the sustainability arena.

With a very broad work experience from commercial fisherman, logger, machinery operator, boat captain, builder, establishment of and living completely off grid, saw milling, extensive blue water sailing, commercial diving, farming including animal husbandry, organics, market gardening, food processing, tree planting, subdivisions, consent processes, consulting and project management services, facilitation, IT systems architecture, and business development, he understands the pitfalls and challenges when shaping a system that has to be robust and reliant as we look towards an unsure future in the world of today.

Listen to a strong and enthusiastic committed person devoted to our natural environment, supporting Youth (and of all ages) sustainable Energy conversations of all kinds, personal and community spiritual evolution, creating engagement tools, that provide value to the individual while supporting our global community. Providing Clarity, Consistency and Being, his is the voice of Leadership amidst the clamor of global awakening.
