Open Team’s mission is to accelerate the positive impact of climate solutions and social innovations worldwide, through enhanced collaboration. To achieve this, we have 3 major goals: * Map and interconnect climate solutions and stakeholders regionally, nationally and globally, based on matching resources * Accelerate the scaling of proven solutions at the widest possible scale * Capitalize and share the global knowledge acquired Our scope is more generally sustainable development, based on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
Open Team is a non-profit organization created early 2015 following the 20th annual UN Climate Conference (COP20) in Peru. The team of co-founders became aware of the effects of global warming and how governments are trying to coordinate their efforts to mitigate the devastating consequences on our environment.
We were shocked to note the gap between the facts reported by the scientists presented in this closed loop of negotiators, and the limited understanding of the public opinion on this issue, which threatens the very survival of our civilization in a horizon of a century.
The Open Team wanted to respond to these challenges by creating an accelerator, the Scale School, with the goal to replicate large-scale social and environmental solutions on a large scale.
Thanks to the Scale School, entrepreneurs who have implemented innovative and mature solutions can pass on their know-how at large scale to emerging entrepreneurs who can be more efficient in replicating a proven solution.
