GoodTribes is a Swedish foundation that promotes collaborations, innovations and research designed to create a better and more sustainable world. The foundation aims at providing all people and organizations with the tools and opportunities to realize ideas, projects and research that contribute to the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals), as defined by Agenda 2030

Our history

The idea of founding GoodTribes Foundation originates from the non-profit organization Infos. 

Since 1992, Infos has been collecting IT equipment from business and public sector to donate them to preschools, schools and non-profit organizations such as Amnesty, Greenpeace, Seniornet, Shelters for homeless, Abused women and children centers (and many many more).

Through the years of collaboration with countless of actors from civil society, education, businesses, it appeared that there was a clear need for a central open-source platform where all actors could meet and collaborate to achieve common goals and innovative solutions to acute local and global environmental and societal problems.

The founders of Infos started the foundation GoodTribes in 2021 for this exact purpose.

Our Vision, Mission & Goals

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide all people and organizations with the best tools and opportunities to meet, collaborate and actively contribute to the SDGs.

 

Our Goals

Crowdsourcing for good

GoodTribes is creating a crowdsourcing1 platform that's based on the principles that have been the main success factors for companies like Wikipedia, Kickstarter, Github and Facebook, but in addition it has a clear ambition to aid fruition of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This makes the platform a driver for collaboration for sustainability.

 

The platform is the place where the public, non-governmental organisations, academia, companies and government agencies can work together, finance ideas/project/research and channel projects that need development. The research and innovation platform does that by utilizing the power that exists in Hive Minds and Crowdsourcing. By open research, innovation and development we can all help out and move the world forward.

 

The platform is a place where you can go and get involved in various projects, make money and make the world a better place by contribute your skills and interest. Here you can work with other exciting people that want to change the world for the better. .​

 

Most importantly this is the platform on where we can build a sustainable future.

 

1) Crowdsourcing is a type of participative online activity in which an individual, an institution, a nonprofit organization, or company proposes to a group of individuals of varying knowledge, heterogeneity, and number, via a flexible open call, the voluntary undertaking of a task. The undertaking of the task; of variable complexity and modularity, and; in which the crowd should participate, bringing their work, money, knowledge and/or experience, always entails mutual benefit. The user will receive the satisfaction of a given type of need, be it economic, social recognition, self-esteem, or the development of individual skills, while the crowdsourcer will obtain and use to their advantage that which the user has brought to the venture, whose form will depend on the type of activity undertaken.
