Join the Coalition


World Builders Institute (WBI) is centered around a large, multi-sector,  volunteer Coalition: the World Building Council.


Coalition members don’t have any legal responsibility for the organization, and there are no meetings. We only ask that members endorse this work by allowing us to publicly include their name as part of the coalition. Members also have the option to provide input, and/or receive funding to participate in our programs.

Power this Movement

Please join us as one of WBI’s founding donors! 


These stories need to be seen as soon as possible, but this timely effort will require artists who are at the top of their game. 


With your help, we can get 7 solutions-inspired, world-changing stories out into the world in 2025! 


Please be the sunshine in our solar panels by giving to the greatest extent of your capacity.

Make an Introduction

Host a House Party

A friendly gathering can be a great way to learn about the change we’re building. It doesn’t have to be fancy! If you live in or around the California Bay Area, we would be delighted to come talk with you and your friends. If you prefer, we’re also happy to talk over Zoom. If you’re interested or would like to learn more, please fill out the contact form and we’ll be in touch.

Spread the Word!

Send a text, talk over coffee, email a friend, however you chose, please share WBI far and wide!

Participate in Programs

Thank you for your interest; we would love to talk with you! WBI strongly believes in compensating people for their time, expertise, and creativity. While time spent providing input or advice through the World Building Council is voluntary, all other program participation is compensated.


See below for ways you can participate!

Thought Leaders

As we launch the Beta Phase of our organization, we will be building the Wheel of Possibilities — an interactive, narrative tool that details attainable and aspirational solutions for global issues. Thought Leaders will be funded to provide information in their areas of expertise for the Wheel and all other project participation. Please contact us if you’re interested in: participating in the building of the Wheel of Possibilities, attending retreats to talk with project teams, helping with follow-up information as teams create their projects, and/or providing information for the Resource Hub.


Please join the Coalition or fill out the contact form for more information!

Arts and Entertainment Professionals

If you’re involved in the creation of Books, Plays, Movies, Television, Video Games, Interactive Stories, or Graphic Novels, we would love to talk with you about our detailed program plans, get your input, and discuss if you or someone you know would like to participate.


Please join the Coalition or fill out the contact form for more information!


With the exception of our awesome Wheel of Possibilities, we have no interest in reinventing the wheel! We’re bringing together great nonprofits and community organizations to partner in this work. Are you doing similar work focused on a specific issue area? Do you have a fun way to inspire writers? Are you an expert in helping people move from despair to visioning? Is there something else we’re doing that fits your expertise? We would love to talk with you about joining this effort.
