Dr. Renuka Thakore’s diverse background has almost nothing that can be seen from a logical standpoint as a pathway to the work she is currently doing, but, it actually is perfect. From construction to advisory work in environmental concerns to financial analyst, researcher, and consultant to finally building a community of “doers” similar to herself. As the founder of the Global Sustainable Futures: Progress Through Partnership Network, this self-identified systems thinker, is pulling from all over the world those people who believe in researching and building multidimensional sustainable communities to create a healthier and more resilient planet for future generations. She talked with Frontrunners Innovate Producer and Host, Mary Kurek, about her what brought her to this particular place of development and what she’s doing to prepare for expansion.
