About

Who am I?

I am Guy Dauncey, a speaker, author and futurist.

I work to develop a positive vision of a beautiful, kind, sustainable future, to translate that vision into action, and to demonstrate it in all my personal relationships.

I live at Yellow Point, near Ladysmith, British Columbia, Canada.

I am founder of the BC Sustainable Energy Association, co-founder of the Victoria Car Share Cooperative, and author or co-author of nine books, including the award-winning  Cancer: 101 Solutions to a Preventable Epidemic and The Climate Challenge: 101 Solutions to Global Warming. My latest  book is Journey to the Future – A Better World is Possible, an ecotopian novel set in Vancouver in the Year 2032. See www.journeytothefuture.ca

I am an Honorary Member of the Planning Institute of BC, a Fellow of the Findhorn Foundation in Scotland, and a Fellow of the Royal Society for the Arts.

My current big project is researching and preparing my next big book, titled The Economics of Kindness: The Birth of a New Cooperative Economy. To this end, I am steadily working my way through 250 books on economics and economic history.

I also host a TV show called Change the World, and I am very active with the Yellow Point Ecological Society. 

My lifetime project is to rewrite the story of who we are, integrating the perennial dream of a better future into our scientific, evolutionary and civilizational story. My historical website, which is packed full of material but has not been updated since 2012, is www.earthfuture.com

  1. To my sorrow, Guy, today I learned you had switched your support of mayor from Lisa to Dean. I have been excited knowing you and I were on the same future full of hope team again this year following through on projects in the past in which we pushed the boundaries of the status quo with hearts filled with hope. Lisa holds the same vision I have experienced in you and the capacity to act on what she says. She, too, interacts with a compassionate heart with and for the people she serves. I have seen her in action and admire her steadfast integrity in working to promote team collaboration. I am hoping there is still time for you to surface further information to reaffirm your support of her as a mayor who will rally civic leadership teams into the sustainable future to which you have given your considerable talents. Thank you.

  2. In June 2006 at a crowded Ottawa Ont. restaurant(The Green Door), Guy Dauncey politely allowed my dinner guest and I to share space at his table which he occupied with a guest.

    With sustainable admiration I have since followed Guy Dauncey in his writings, whether in book form or on Internet.

    NOW, I would be pleased as punch to know what the letters ”’FRSA”’ stand for after his name, if they are not England’s ”’Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts”’ or ”’Fellow of the Royal Society of Australia”’.

  3. Guy – where can I find your presentation that contains the story about teams of oxen serving as the first beginnings of the industrial revolution? You mentioned this last Friday at the Duncan symposiuym. (I think it was oxen….)

  4. Mr. Dauncey, I agree with your proposal for QE for the climate. I have struggled for a very long time to understand how our governments spend trillions per year on warfare and we cannot build an electric train across North America or provide sustainable housing and food to all our citizens. If the war budget became the climate crisis solution budget, we could turn this ship around in no time.
