Innovation

“We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.” – Albert Einstein

“You just need to do everything you can, with everyone you can, to change everything you can.” – Greta Thunberg

Overview

Destroying biodiversity has also destroyed the critical mechanisms for stabilising our climate. As dangerous tipping points already are being breached there are three equally critically urgent priorities that must be enacted:

1. Stop pouring greenhouse gasses into the atmosphere

2. Draw down the excess and store it back underground; restoring biodiversity is the most cost-effective way to do this

3. Adaptation: prepare to live in a world with a rapidly changing climate; restoring biodiversity will buffer us from the worst impacts

We can do this. And we can thrive. But it requires a different way of thinking.

It requires innovation.

If you have an innovate project or business that aims to achieve one or more of the three urgent priorities, particularly priorities 2 and 3, contact manager@braid.org.nz so that we can include them here.
