How to invest your money wisely if you want to do something about climate change!

Chamath Palihapitiya sent out a call for help to allocate billions towards sustainability and climate change. Find his call via this link.

I am not really active on Twitter, so lucky me; A friend of mine shared Chamath’s tweet with me and said: “Zjef, this is something for you”.

And he was completely right! After all, I was the one that wrote a 47 pages paper in 2019 called “A strategy on how to let humanity survive and thrive”. Just for the fun of it.

Of course, since that paper I have learned a lot and I do see some things different now. Moreover, Chamath said the answer to his call had to be maximum 7 pages (that’s 40 pages less than the paper of 2019).

So yes, it was definitely a challenge to rework the content of the paper, and then to distil it to 7 pages. But where there is a will, there is a way. And with a little bit of document-adjustments that are in the grey zone between cheating and not-cheating, I made a 7 page-proposal for a framework and process on how to allocate millions and billions for true sustainability!

Hence, if you’re interested in investing a lot of money towards sustainability, then click here and have fun!

Always at your service,


ps: There’s a lot of thoughts, knowledge and experience behind those 7 pages. So definitely give me a call if you have some questions and/or feedback about it!

A framework for change, inspired by Wu Xing!
