What People are Saying
Kate Sullivan and Eve Smyth
Ashland Children's Theatre
“Donnie Maclurcan and The Post Growth Institute are truly inspiring. They have been crucial in our transition to a not-for- profit business, making the process easy and even fun. The comprehensive support they provide to community organizations is incredibly valuable.”
Former CEO, WiserEarth
“The Post Growth Institute is igniting a popular challenge to the assumption that all growth is good, and making it possible for the everyday person to talk about what sustainability REALLY means.”
Founder, Empower Projects
"Thank you so much for opening my eyes to more just and sustainable approaches to community development in 2009. Our conversation was pivotal and set me on journey of critical reflection about the type of projects I wanted to be a part of. It has, in my view, made me a much better social entrepreneur. Life hasn't been the same since and I am deeply grateful."
