An ideas lab

working at the intersections of research, public policy, social innovation, design, and the arts. We explore how the great cultural and social transformations of our day affect young children, and we foster new ideas to ensure a future in which children and their families flourish.



The image on our homepage is a photograph of the geodesic dome designed by Buckminster Fuller for the Canada’s Expo ’67 in Montreal. We have chosen it because we are inspired by the work of Buckminster Fuller, one of the 20th century’s most visionary and inventive leaders dedicated to solving global problems. Capita aspires to bring his bold and comprehensive vision of a sustainable and humane future to our work on behalf of children and families.
