About us.


Slow Factory is a nonprofit that transforms socially and environmentally harmful systems by designing models that are good for the Earth and good for people. We are People of the Global Majority advancing climate justice and social equity through regenerative design, education, and materials innovation. Education is central to the systemic change we need for a livable equitable climate future. We must dismantle the current paradigm of extraction, exploitation, and racial oppression and revive a pan-Indigenous paradigm to restore our relationships to each other and our planet.
