We Help Projects Coordinate Change. Together.

How?

Effective coordination means knowing where to look, when. We start by mapping various efforts and  resources – all organized by sector, geography, and more – and creating connections through these variables. We offer clarity, and a path to faster collaboration, leveraging the pooled insights of our shared knowledge ecosystem.

Increase the speed of and confidence in your critical decisions towards human and planetary resilience.

We help and highlight projects coming together through

Strategic Initiatives.

Strategics Initiatives (SIs) are groups of two or more projects advocating an action that: 

  • Team Earth has identified as likely to have a direct impact on resolving a crisis or meeting a basic human need.
  • Have established clear goals, membership, and shared commitment.
  • Partner, team, and share knowledge with other projects on the Team Earth map.

Each Strategic Initiative receives and maintains its own page on the Team Earth website, including links to individual projects, key information, project updates, and more.

  • Think you have what it takes?

Support Us.

Team Earth utilizes direct donations either through our Open Collective platform, or you can become a Citizen member by contributing annually, joining the discussion, and enjoying additional member benefits.

Learn About Team Earth.

We are a heads-up, open-hearted cooperative that uses a teaming and systems approach to help people self-organize and coordinate across teams with robust collaboration software. Imagination and common sense-making are tools we use to effectively address challenges that threaten human and planetary health.

We have no lack of will to do good on the planet. Many people are motivated to try and create better futures. But projects lack resources and people are flooded with information. Our current coordination systems tend to accrue power to themselves, resulting in misaligned incentives, wasted resources, and success to the successful. We need some basic coordination capacities that are designed for all people.
