Why are we doing this?
It is well-established scientific consensus that human activities are responsible for the increase in heat-trapping greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, causing average global temperatures to rise over time. This rise in temperature is changing global climate patterns and increasing the likelihood of weather-related natural disasters, affecting communities worldwide. Climate change has the potential to harm this current and future generations’ safety, public health, economy, and quality of life.
In December 2015, world leaders adopted the Paris Agreement, a global action plan to avoid catastrophic impacts of climate change, formalizing their concerted efforts to limit the global average temperature increase to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels. The agreement urged national leaders to join forces with states and local governments to commit to net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.
But we’re late and we need to act as individuals and entrepreneurs, creating initiatives to fight climate change.
How we will do it?
Purpose Alliance is a non-for-profit entity focused on empowering extraordinary people to create the future.
One of the main activities of Purpose Alliance is running Purpose Challenges where both individuals and teams participate to either generate new ideas or evolve existing solutions in order to make a masive impact in a specific area (in this case, climate change!).
Purpose Launchpad, an open-sourced methodology to make a massive impact
Purpose Launchpad is focused on generating and evolving early-stage ideas into purpose-driven organizations to make a massive impact.
In order to generate disruptive ideas and/or evolve existing solutions to tackle this global challenge, we will use the Purpose Launchpad, which is an innovation methodology with which people can evolve early-stage ideas into purpose-driven, sustainable, and eventually exponential organizations that will make a massive impact.
Purpose Launchpad includes eight different axes with the areas that innovative initiatives need to properly assess and evolve in order to successfully make a massive impact. These areas are purpose, people, customer, abundance, sustainability, process, product and metrics.
Also, in order to continuously evolve the previously mentioned areas, the Purpose Launchpad meta methodology uses dozens of proven and open innovation frameworks, processes and tools such as Lean Startup, Design Thinking, Agile, Exponential Organizations, etc.
Participating in a Purpose Challenge, getting to know (with the free training and the real experience) the Purpose Launchpad methodology and working with a certified mentor is a prize itself!
