Volunteer for THRIVE

World falling apart

The Problem

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.

Our Mission

To deliver providence and prosperity to the world by illuminating the way forward. To integrate thrivability within the fabric of society, as well as the environmental ecosystem of the planet.

Our Vision

To live in a world where all life-forms co-exist in harmony and solidarity with each other. To pursue value creation and prosperity across the globe.

Enter THRIVE

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!!!

Our Story

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.
