Abundance in Narrative: A Report for the Think Big Learning Community

We often define abundance as a contrast. Abundance is NOT scarcity, NOT austerity, NOT competition for resources. So, then, what IS abundance?

What are some of the core elements behind the term and the idea in narrative? What do these elements look like in practice? What are some of the inherent tensions? What do we know (and not know) about how it lands with the public? 

As a first step in answering these questions, we’ve put together a synthesis of what we know so far.

Over the last few months, Topos Partnership reviewed materials and noted elements in practice, talked to stakeholders about the promise and potential pitfalls, and  identified questions for further exploration. 


This is the start of an ongoing conversation. We invite you to engage with this report and share your thoughts, ideas, and evaluations of the Abundance framework—in your experience, what works (and what doesn’t)?
