Topic: What we love

We love the spirit of togetherness

Nothing is a solo act. Everything is a huge collaboration.

To make significant inroads in creating a radically better future we must need to step outside our bubble and get radical.

We need to work with people we trust, who listen, are self-accountable, self-aware, and committed to support this shared vision.

It’s all about radically collaborating and it’s really is the best way to work and get stuff done. Everyone's there because they have a set of skills to offer across the board and everyone wants the same outcome.

Let’s remember the old proverb:

"If you want to go fast you can go alone, but if you want to go far we should go together.’

 


 

Here are some powerful examples of radical collaboration

All in

 

Countless discoveries, innovations and inventions have been made because of the combined effort and ideas of two or more people working together. Think Marie and Pierre Curie; the Wright Brother; and Proctor and Gamble. These real-life examples of collaboration that have made history include understanding the DNA molecule and Ben and Jerry's veritable ice cream revolution.

By going all in and harnessing the powers of teamwork and collaboration these business leaders, including Jobs and Wozniak who founded Apple, overcame individual limitations, and built joint ventures that became household names.

This book compiles the best 50 examples of collaborative-based businesses. Many emerged by chance, others are the product of the systematic exchanges between companies. It includes NASA and LEGO who worked together to use LEGO as an educational tool; Coca-Cola and Heinz who developed more sustainable containers together; and the Sustainable Apparel Coalition who defined a common sustainability index. 

 


 
A radically cleaner and better future
Future sign
 
Businesses, innovators, communities, and entrepreneurs are already working together to unlock energy solutions for a cleaner future. 
 
This is an amazing example of radical collaboration as 150 creatives rolled up their sleeves to collaborate and come up with innovative solutions to tackle the climate crisis after hearing from rousing activists and inspiring thought leaders at an event last year. Creatives for Climate was intended as a one-off event but grew into a non-profit initiative bringing the power of creative industries to activist groups, scientists and those with regenerative solutions.

It’s becoming clear that radical collaboration is the gateway to cleaner industrialisation, as people from diverse backgrounds increasingly work together across borders leading to new ways of thinking, better solutions, and swifter progress in the fight against the climate crisis.
 
This nice read explains how individuals are getting actively involved in sustainable development using radical collaboration. The recurring message is for meaningful change, you need to step outside your bubble and get radical. 
 

 
What COVID-19 has taught us about radical collaboration
Remote

COVID-19 has stripped away any pretence of partnering for show. The author of this article explains how partnerships during this crisis have been real, impactful, built on trust, and have built even more trust.

And while many enterprises and organisations were using collaboration platforms prior to the pandemic, the abrupt move to a remote-work model saw most of us forced to become intimately familiar with collaboration technology. And there’s no turning back now! 


 

Here’s why collaborating is important
everyone
 
Collaboration is what makes teamwork successful and make great progress. How well you collaborate with others will greatly impact the outcome of the group’s mission. Here are seven reasons why collaboration is important.

There's strength in numbers and by combining the effort and expertise of different organisations, all partners are better able to innovate and grow, and increase their competitiveness on many levels. Here, the key benefits of collaboration include: financial benefits; human capital; physical capital; and intellectual capital. 


 
We’re doing it too!
Us too
Sustainability Mentors was founded by Warp It’s Head of Happiness, Dan, when he realised a need to normalise mentorship in the sustainability space. Following setting up the initial service offering, over 1600 sustainability professionals swiftly signed up resulting in 200 mentor-mentee pairings, and counting!
 
We now have a team of 20 volunteers based around the globe currently overseeing the project as it evolves, in true radical collaborative fashion.
