The Foundation benefits from the experience and expertise of a network of innovators, policy influencers, academics and industry specialists who share a common purpose of achieving meaningful change for the benefit of the public.
Getting there won’t be easy, but we know we need to cooperate like never before. We believe a sustainable future is not only reliant on new technologies, however smart they may be, but will also require a deep understanding and appreciation of nature and natural processes, collective intelligence, collaborative action and unlimited creativity.
To fulfil our goals, we will be guided by the TS_F Factor where ‘T’ means Tools, this can be time, knowledge or other resources, ‘S’ means Skills, both personal and professional, next it is Connectivity, linking people, passion and purpose and ‘F’ is Familiarity, based on the experience we can draw on.
