WHY WE EXIST
Create change. Together.
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 to expand our collaborative capacity, and act towards the health of all of Team Earth.
We are a worker-owned LCA, a Limited Cooperative Association, with several ways to get involved.
We build our tech to protect your data as a commons. If you’re curious about how we navigate, read our Coordinates.
Teaming as a practice
We are a heads-up, open-hearted cooperative building collaboration software to support strategic change. Our services use a teaming and systems approach to help people self-organize and share strategies. Imagination and common sense-making are tools we use to effectively address challenges that threaten human and planetary health.
Team Earth invites you to join us in tackling the tangled problems of pandemic response, climate change, housing, fresh water, food security, and more.
Our cooperative innovates on ownership as well as technology. Please join us in support of basic human needs and planetary health.

We’re looking for folks with these skills on the core team: UX / UI, front end or full-stack software development, coop operations and finance, and are open to other proposals. Please get in touch if you’re interested in co-founding a worker-owned coop with us. We’re much more a zebra than a unicorn, and we know that enough is enough.

The ‘Knowledge Ecology interface’, our ‘KEi’ collaboration software, provides access to what the smartest people in the room know, helping you coordinate strategic action based on this shared intelligence.
The KEi helps projects see and share their activities and strategies across sectors, including pandemic response, health care, food security, education, and more.
Our consulting services are still available on a limited basis while we work on building the software. Contact us and provide your project’s details and timeline and we’ll get in touch.
Individuals can support us through our citizen collective. Projects in various human needs or planetary health sectors and in alignment with our Coordinates are invited to send us your Team Earth map profile link, along with a five sentence brief about how or why you’d like to partner with us. Also, feel free to propose a strategic initiative.
