Human Resource Business Partner Volunteer for Catastrophic Wildfire Prevention by CrowdDoing
The earth is burning; e.g., USA/California, Brazil, Australia. Regional impacts of wildfires are widespread affecting health, housing, agriculture, biodiversity, and economies. Our post hoc "pay for damage done" insurance strategies are woefully inadequate for these rising challenges.
We need to seize the opportunity that is now possible. We think the science has gotten better, and a new inflection point is possible. If we leverage a broader diversity of disciplines with increasing bearing on the intractable challenge of catastrophic wildfire prevention, we can reclaim collective agency. We think that could be possible via increased design science for prevention, mitigation and loss reduction at the landscape and community level.
We plan to develop a year-round alliance of ecosystem partners that can help us transformationally scale catastrophic wildfire risk prevention through better understanding of the opportunities for "action" that is preventative and the costs of inaction that these mitigation steps will avoid. We believe that systemic change in wildfire risk reduction is possible and want to speak about the possibility of strategic collaboration to shift the practice of stakeholders at risk so that California does not become increasingly unliveable every year. We believe catastrophic wildfire risk prevention can help us get ahead of the curve counteracting these harms.
CrowdDoing is launching a year-round virtual Global Alliance for Catastrophic Wildfire Prevention with shared values and an open invitation for participation.
Global Alliance for Catastrophic Wildfire Prevention
- More reuse of global knowledge regarding how to prevent catastrophic wildfires is necessary.
- We need greater leveraging of knowledge from across disciplines in order to prevent the growing risk of catastrophic wildfires due to climate change.
- We need greater collaboration both locally and globally to achieve the community level goal of regeneration and reduced catastrophic wildfire risk.
- There is interdependence across the ecosystem of approaches and interventions for preventing catastrophic wildfires.
- The more upstream we can intervene effectively to prevent catastrophic wildfires, the more co-benefits for stakeholders we can create.

CrowdDoing.world believes in the exponential potential of global collaboration to de-risk and develop social innovations and leverage diverse capabilities to realize shared goals. CrowdDoing leverages multiple intervention points and under-utilized capacities to achieve operating leverage for systems change. CrowdDoing is able to achieve this kind of compound leverage for impact across our portfolio areas from homelessness prevention, prevention derivatives, health benefits from spending time in nature, medicinal foods for stress and anxiety, and preventing isolation as a side effect of virtual volunteerism. All of these are anticipatory solutions which allow people to get ahead of their risks of catastrophe. CrowdDoing leverages under-utilized capacities to make it feasible for our solutions to potentially reach the scale of the problems we face together.
CrowdDoing works in sustainability, anti-poverty, public health, education, and research. We aim to address UN Sustainable Development Goals and beyond through our social innovation efforts.
CrowdDoing approaches each collective challenge through the lens of operating leverage for systems change via social innovation. This allows us to identify different under-utilized capacities that could make addressing problems in our society more feasible in the future.
At CrowdDoing, each of us adopts a dimension of a larger challenge. We collaborate within our convenient feasibility on this with others. We don’t expect ourselves to have every expertise. We rely on each-other.
We include broad participation by micro-leaders in systemic change through specific social innovations that we can build together.
Service learning focused on social innovation can be efficient simultaneously at achieving impact, and at teaching skills needed in the future. Service learning and skilled volunteering have demonstrably been efficient and effective approaches to helping individuals acquire skills for a VUCA (volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity) world in a diversity of fields-from human resources to engineering to project management to data science.
CrowdDoing aims to scale participation through skilled volunteering and service learning opportunities to help enterprises and institutions foster social innovation. Better mental health, physical health and productivity among employees are among the intrinsic incentives that prompt companies to adopt employee volunteer programs. LearniNng, creating impact, and achieving mental and physical health benefits are intrinsic incentives that prompt employees to participate in volunteering & service learning programs.
Research shows professional development is most effective when hands on through challenging / new projects and experiences.
Micro-leadership at CrowdDoing means that while each person adopts a dimension of responsibility for a collective problem in our society, each of us does not take on the worry about the whole. We take on a level of responsibility that is safe for each of us to have comfort in.
Service learning combines learning objectives with community service in order to provide a pragmatic, progressive learning experience while meeting societal needs. Service learning and skilled volunteering helps to bridge skill & social innovation gaps to achieve sustainable development goals.
