2 Goals on CLEANetwork

Amy December 22, 2020

In Summary

The goal is to create as many climate ventures and target actions as possible, and get everyone participating and thriving authentically.

  1. Climate Ventures

A business, lifestyle, system etc. that is good for the climate, economy and humanity.

  1. Target Actions

People- and nature-centered human behaviors that result in learning about or actually carrying out emissions reductions. Each Climate Venture has at its core at least one Target Action.

  1. Thriving Authentically

We live our purpose and earn a living without destroying the environment and our fellow humans. Behaviors that increase human connections or reduce harmful emissions are recognized and rewarded over one’s lifetime (if one so chooses).

In Detail

  1. Climate Ventures

A business, lifestyle, system etc. that is good for the climate, economy and humanity.

The Climate Venture Map was developed to help everyone understand climate ventures. The Climate Venture Map is basically a business model canvas developed especially to result in business models and lifestyles that are good for the climate, economy, and humanity. 

A full description and study guide for the Climate Venture Map is available at https://theclimateeconomy.com/the-climate-venture-map/

We can break it down into three simple steps:

  1. Vision and Backcasting: the change we need, our current situation, and what’s in between
  2. Target Action: Your Solution and why it’s good for climate/economy/humanity
  3. Cause the Change: what’s produced to cause the change (art, invention, project, business), how we’re helping along the change, and how we encourage/reward
  1. Target Actions

People- and nature-centered individual human behaviors that result in learning about or actually carrying out emissions reductions.

There are two categories and eight types of Target Actions

  • Category One: Learn
    • Reducing Emissions – Energy Use
    • Reducing Emissions – Everything Else
    • Carbon Sinks
    • Increasing Connections – Become and Engaged Citizen
    • Increasing Connections – Help Those In Need
  • Category Two: Do
    • Reducing Emissions – Energy Use
    • Reducing Emissions – Everything Else
    • Carbon Sinks
    • Increasing Connections – Become and Engaged Citizen
    • Increasing Connections – Help Those In Need

We focus on keeping our humanity and taking care of each other at the center of all our actions.

You can search target actions on CLEANetwork, and even create your own for others to take. Behaviors that reduce emissions or increase connections, aka target actions, are rewarded in various ways.

  1. Thriving Authentically

We live our purpose and earn a living without destroying the environment and our fellow humans. Behaviors that increase human connections or reduce harmful emissions are recognized and rewarded over one’s lifetime (if one so chooses).

Since the dawn of time humanity has needed systems of penalty and reward to keep them in line. This is no different. Read more about thriving authentically at https://theclimateeconomy.com/thrive-authentically/. We’re going to make it easy for everyone to thrive authentically by giving everyone ways to keep score of their own progress, and to build up their resume of actions over time. This is a long-term journey, and it’s going to a blast of creativity, cooperation and courage.
