From the Editor

Thanks for coming to Co.Exist. This site is focused on groundbreaking innovation, innovation that’s going to change the way we live and the resources we use. We’re for brash and creative solutions, that make everyone rich while helping the people of the world lead lovely, clean, and fulfilling lives.

First, we need acknowledge some simple truths. We are consuming more resources than we can produce. We’ve been looking at the same wind turbines and solar panels for years now, telling ourselves that it will all be fine. But at this rate of marginal change, it won’t.

Though we’re currently resource poor, we’re still ingenuity rich. It’s time to buck convention and find solutions that people haven’t thought of yet, even if we have to rethink our beliefs about the environment, energy, technology, food, health, transportation, urbanism, and poverty.

Those are the kinds of stories you’ll find here. Stories about world-changing innovations that are going to alter the way we live for the better in the next year--and over the next 100 years--in ways you can’t yet imagine.

We’re going to fix things, no matter what it takes. But enough with being polite. It’s time to kick down the doors to find a solution.

(And why not follow us on Twitter and be our fan on Facebook while we’re at it?)
