Mission: To nurture a sustainable framework for an equitable and just future.

We’re facing substantial changes in the world, and we urgently need to transform our societies. Within Canada, and our larger context globally, we must prepare for impending climate chaos as well as rapid technological changes that will overhaul our ways of life. The necessary frameworks and pathways to a stable, resilient, and flourishing world are not well defined. We lack the tools, policy, and communication methods to realize such a future. In founding moonlight • institute, we hope to foster policy research, support the development of tools and communication strategies, as well as tell stories of hope, illuminating pathways to a sustainable, equitable, and just world for generations to come.

“Moonlight” is the English translation of Chandra Prabha, who was a beloved instructor of computer science at Capilano College (now University), and yoga teacher trainer in meditation. It is in her memory that we dedicate the work of this organization to create a world she would have been proud to see. It follows in the spirit of her environmentalism, compassion, and commitment to equity and justice.
