The role of guiding regulations and resource allocations is to safeguards life’s wholeness and integrity at all levels. Without setting rules transformations to sustainability do not move forward. Guiding regulations are as powerful as deliberate interventions in our hands to decide the way resources are allocated, access is managed, taxes are distributed, or investments are focused. But, as important, are voluntary frameworks and peer-reviewed standards that guide the change in our collective behavior. To enable transformative change, we must learn how to combine voluntary and binding agreements.
