For Example: Critical Crossroads in Climate Action We are on the verge of “run-away” climate change. We • know the science • see that current systems are limited as presently structured (laws, governments, NGOs and foundations) • Lack of alignment • Limited collaboration (duplication of efforts) • Under-resourced • need response and adaptation to these challenges at scale

New models and collaborations need to scale rapidly 8
