The GoodTribes foundation aims to deliver a research and innovation platform that will support people and organizations to contribute to United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). The platform will give the public, non-governmental organizations, academia, businesses and public sector new ways to collaborate, finance and support innovative ideas, projects and research. It will strengthen the means of implementation and revitalize the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development in accordance with SDG number 17.
GoodTribes crowdsourcing1 platform is based on the same principles that have been the main success factors for companies like Wikipedia, Github, Kickstarter and Facebook, but in addition it has a clear ambition to aid fruition of the UN SDGs. This makes the platform a driver for collaboration for sustainability.
The Goodtribes foundation was founded in 2021 by the non-profit organization Infos. Infos was started in 1992 and has been an innovation hub for ideas, projects and people who wants to contribute to a more sustainable world. One of their projects was Infos: Datordonation (Infos: Computerdonation), which donated used IT equipment from companies and the public sector to preschools, schools and non-profit organizations such as Amnesty and Greenpeace.
Goodtribes was founded because there is a great need for society’s various actors to work together to achieve sustainability. Infos long experience shows that the public, non-governmental organizations, public sector, academia and business all wants to contribute to sustainability. The problem today is that there is no easy and effective way for these actors to cooperate for the greater good. GoodTribes will provide these tools and means in order to enable and encourage local and global collaboration.
