Community Activism

We can create more caring communities. Organizations, businesses, towns, or regions thrive when members understand that individual success cannot come at the expense of the collective. For decades, Ken Streater has studied towns, companies, and cultures around the world and now offers initiatives that foster trust and compassion as cornerstones to better places. Check out Hooray Cafe and the Goodness’ Sake Project.

Books and Writings

In his writings, Ken Streater weaves insights on culture, evolution, achievement and collaboration. His upcoming book (available December, 2018), Be the Good: Becoming a Force for a Better World, offers twenty easy-to-do action steps to help your life and community flourish, simply by seeing and doing more good. In The Gift of Courage, Ken shares stories of everyday heroes who compassionately elevate those around them.

Live Events

Shows produced and hosted by Ken Streater are highly regarded positive community growth opportunities. At these events–which often double as fundraisers for vital local non-profits–energizing speakers and entertainers highlight how you can be, do, and give more to your community. In addition, Ken shares action-oriented insights via his TED Talk and other speaking engagements for towns, businesses, or organizations.


Businesses, organizations, municipalities, and others interested in elevating their culture to more heart-driven, dynamic, and collaborative environments will benefit from our consulting options. Simply, we help build better communities. We also offer high-school curriculum based on real educational experience that empowers students to positively shape their future and enliven the world around them.
