The world is falling apart. We are already experiencing biodiversity loss, mass inequality and injustice, catastrophic fires and drought, climate change, and most recently the coronavirus epidemic. The evidence shows that, left unchecked, these adverse conditions will only increase in frequency and severity.
So how do we fix it?
Humankind’s unsustainable practices are responsible for these challenges. So it’s up to us, individually and collectively, to contribute towards fixing them. It’s the only way to ensure our long-term providence and prosperity. Our contributions will enable humankind to move away from the death, disease, and destruction of our ecosystem towards a resilient and regenerative society, re-engineered for sustainability and thrivability.
It is against this backdrop that THRIVE Project was born. We are an independent, scientific, capacity building and advocacy-based organization. The project aims to pursue information related to the natural and social sciences. We want to identify the necessary changes to society required to achieve sustainability. That way we can ensure the long-term flourishing of civilization on Earth. Our field of focus includes three key areas: research, education, and advocacy.
Imagine a world where everyone understands the need for sustainability and works together to achieve it. Together we can create a world free from inequality, wars, poverty, and climate change. Let’s make a world where we can THRIVE!!!
The seeds of THRIVE project were planted in 2004 in humble beginnings. A growing group of individuals in North America, Europe, Asia and Australia connected with one another over their shared desire to make a difference. THRIVE was formally set up in 2016 as The Holistic Regenerative Innovative Value Entity, a web-based, multi-capital, values-based tool. Built upon the best available science, it addresses our 21st century challenges by measuring well-being. THRIVE Platform tool uses machine learning and predictive analytics to guide society towards the future we aspire to, by accessing extensive historical repositories and leveraging the learnings from experts around the world.
Although THRIVE was set up as a research based platform, to measure sustainability in a way which informs the future, the founders of the platform realized that there is a need to share the research-based information with society at large. This sharing of information will help provoke societal action to achieve sustainability and a thrivable future. With that end in mind, the education and advocacy components were added to the organizational aims. Consequently, the scope of the organization moved from being a platform to a project which can enable countries, cities, companies, and individuals to transform themselves into thrivable entities. Much like a stethoscope, THRIVE keeps track of the well-being of each of these entities, measuring their impact on the vital capitals of the planet and making sure that these measurements are used to inform people’s actions and political decisions.
Eight years in the making, we are a respected international movement in the field of thrivability, with no other organization approaching sustainability, as universally, holistically, and transparently as we do. To this end, harnessing the latest in machine learning, holochain, and cloud computing, we have developed technologies, tools and educational programmes arming individuals with the understanding to make the changes they seek in the pursuit of prosperity for all.
I have been working as a content writer volunteer for THRIVE since May 2021. I joined the organisation to be part of a movement that strives to find solutions for the problems facing our Earth and its natural environment. From the beginning, I was impressed by THRIVE’s level of organisation. The recruitment and selection process was very thorough and looked at the applicant’s skills and motivation. It showed to me the level of seriousness and commitment to the common cause.
The process of initiation was just as refined and consisted in ensuring the new members knew what THRIVE expected from them. The training sessions and regular organisation-wide face-to-face and online meetings brought me a sense of belonging that I hadn’t found in other volunteer-based institutions.
As a not-for-profit business, THRIVE has managed to amass an enormous amount of resources towards our common goal. It has attracted dozens of highly educated university graduates and experienced professionals in a variety of areas such as research, editing, administration, marketing, and IT support. These professionals are well organised in teams that ensure the success of our activities. THRIVE also counts with modern, state-of-the-art software and hardware resources that facilitate our activities. They also run its main evaluation engine that measures what matters most: thrivability.
Embarking on Thrive Project as a Researcher/Content Writer has not only enabled me to live up my passion but also made me more cognisant of the most pressing world issues whilst enhancing my sustainability acumen. Anyone who has the best interests of the world’s future at heart will undoubtedly find Thrive Project as the ideal platform to thrive.
THRIVE presents a crystal clear way forward for all of us interested in global sustainability and the preferred futures of our planet and our communities. THRIVE draws on the best available intelligence distilled from current practice and the most rigorous and robust conceptual models and research designs. THRIVE presents evidence-based and demonstrated strategies for communities, businesses, government, groups and individuals throughout the world to work towards more equitable and just outcomes for all of us.
We must heed mother nature. The impetus right now is for the gathering of the best minds to share and disseminate the knowledge and tools necessary, and collaboratively foster the imperative to innovate towards thrivability.
I started at THRIVE a few months ago and love how welcoming everyone has been from the very beginning. Everyone on the team is very passionate about sustainability issues and I am constantly grateful to be working with people who care so much about what is happening to our world and who are actively trying to secure a more THRIVEable future for us all.
Volunteering at THRIVE project has allowed me to give back to a worthy cause by helping to bring more awareness to the project. I believe more businesses should focus on sustainability.
THRIVE provides me a platform to not only become an exponent at the local level but reach out to the high-end corporations. Corporations and investors are realizing that sustainability is not only assisting with positive growth but also with the brand image as well.
I wanted to be part of THRIVE project because I find it a fascinating project, it is very involved in sustainability and environment. We can all learn a lot from this.
