Each day that we wait to address climate change, we lose:
Our actions in the next 10 months could determine the future of our planet.
We don't have a day to waste.
Around the world, innovators and local leaders are developing critical solutions to fight the climate crisis.
Tools that empower people, while making our planet cleaner, healthier, and more resilient.
These innovations could be making an impact around the world.
But today, they're isolated in their local contexts.
is an effort to spread sustainable innovations through an open-source framework.
So that anyone -- students, teachers, makers, leaders -- can locally adopt + build on critical projects.
And instead of waiting to take action, we can start leading sustainable transitions in our communities --
Community Sharing Economies
An open-source framework for the sharing economy, providing a base technical layer from which anyone can prototype + design new sharing applications.
Like Common Bike -- an initiative for open-source, people-first micromobility.
Mass Market Electification
Instead of manufacturing 500 million new electric cars and buses, we can convert existing vehicles to electric.
Transition One is already demonstrating this -- offering a faster, more sustainable, and broadly affordable path to zero-emission transportation.
A ESCo (Energy Service Company) provides people and communities with sustainable infrastruture. The beneficiaries pay the same utilities, but now to the ESCo, so it can recoup the investment throught the clean energy generated.
What kind of solutions?
Solutions like the open-source shared mobility.
So instead of allowing our cities to become overrun by e-scooter and ride-sharing companies, we can enable communities to build that infrastructure.
For example: neighborhood bike sharing, car sharing, tool libraries, and whatever other applications people dream up.
And instead of yet another system built to commodify people, we have a sustainable system built for people.
Several innovative leaders, companies, and dedicated technology partners are on board with the effort and interested in collaboration.
Specific roles and partnerships will be determined when Time to Solve has the funding to officially get undewray.
With knowledge, inspiration, and support from a lot of people, Sam has built Time to Solve up to this point.
