01 Apr SKOLL WORLD FORUM – PROTOTYPING AN EARTH+ FUTURE
Opportunity emerges from crisis.
Modern civilization is experiencing a series of crises from many angles, ranging from health to environmental to governmental and, in truth, existential. Amongst this disruption, where others only see despair, we see opportunities emerging and, where there is chaos, lives the chance for new systems to grow. The power of story to shape our perspective, raise our awareness and evoke (self) compassion is the tool most needed at this moment to awaken humanity and light the path towards limiting global temperature rise to well below 2 degrees Celsius.
How we are solving 2 Degrees?
With two clear steps. We are committed to identifying, capturing and extending this active market demand for sustainable, accessible, inclusive ecosystems of solutions vetted for their positive impact on both the economy and the environment.
- 1.) Creating market need by vetting and funding stories that accelerate behavioral change
- 2.) Funding ‘Solutions‘ for systems that are Carbon negative
Modern civilization is experiencing a series of crises from many angles, ranging from health to environmental to governmental and, in truth, existential. The pattern of unconscious overconsumption brought us to this breaking point and only a new pattern of conscious production will bring forward a new Earth positive future.
One way of solving the climate crisis is by influencing consumer behavior, the other is creating and manufacturing products and systems that are Planet positive (industries that are most carbon negative and therefore in need of innovation are such as agriculture, manufacturing, energy production, transportation). Without amplification tools, there is minimal measurable positive impact on a global scale. Quite unexpectedly, we have been given the first tool in the form of the COVID19 virus with its clarion wake up call.
Now we have an army of awakened consumers, who finally understand the power of collaboration to create an accessible, inclusive engaging world, one that they can now see and want to sustain. We’ve seen what a difference 2 degrees can make in our lives and in the world outside our windows and it’s inspired the development of new stories of a better future for all.
Speakers include: fund principals, LPs, world renowned Hollywood producers, game developers, marketing & communication specialist, brand architect, system thinkers, ecosystem builders
