How does your organisation address climate change?
Project 17 Solutions is providing a service for people who want to be part of a team making a tangible contribution to United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and Climate change. Participants are people who believe we can all contribute to making the world a better place, and commit a minimum of 2 hours a week for their part. We take a cohort of enthusiastic, committed people through an ideation phase, where together we develop a list of potential ideas and prioritise them. The participants then form teams around the idea they feel most passionate about. The teams, supported by their agile coach, clarify their purpose and use a Lean Startup approach to define achievable goals towards their idea. Over five two-week sprints, they deliver a Minimum Viable Product, reflect on their achievements and re-evaluate their goals for the next cycle. The teams are supported as they progress, utilising the latest remote collaboration tools, receiving video training, learning, and utilising Lean Startup approaches to product development. Like any good startup, when the ideas show promise, there is genuine potential to create a viable startup enterprise.
