BSR is a global nonprofit organization that works with its network of more than 250 member companies and other partners to build a just and sustainable world.
A coalition of partners working together to build a regenerative future - where we meet the needs of all, within the means of the planet.
Future Stewards is partnering with TED on Countdown: a global initiative to champion and accelerate solutions to the climate crisis, turning ideas into action.
OCT 2020 - OCT 2021: ACCELERATE PROGRESS. We will work with partners to support a series of workstreams — each designed to tackle a climate-related, cross-sector challenge. Workstreams will bring together leaders from business, finance, government, local communities, science, the arts and philanthropy.
OCT 2021: COUNTDOWN SUMMIT + LOCAL EVENTS. We will share a blueprint for a beautiful net-zero future at a central Summit of 1,200 leaders in Edinburgh, Scotland, further amplified by hundreds of TEDx Countdown events around the world. The Summit and the TEDx events will combine talks, case studies and workshops – and celebrate new commitments made, efforts in progress, and the people who are driving them.
Future Stewards came together in 2016 after the breakthrough Paris Climate Agreement as a collaboration to help leaders step up to the challenges of our changing world.
We work with people taking bold action on complex problems including climate change.
Despite incredible progress over the last few decades in many aspects of life, humanity’s current trajectory will not serve in a world of 9+billion people, where we all need to thrive within the means of our planet.
Our partnership brings together the deep experience of the architects of the Paris Climate Agreement (Global Optimism), a coalition working with business to take action on climate change (We Mean Business), and a social enterprise supporting leaders to drive transformation in their organizations and communities (Leaders’ Quest).
We equip people with the awareness and tools required to tackle systemic problems. Through collaborative projects with business, society and government, we help them shift from a mindset of scarcity to one of abundant possibility. Our aim is to build a network of visionary change-makers to achieve the ambitious goals of the Paris Agreement – and build a regenerative future.
We Mean Business coalition partners
Future Stewards was established in 2016 by five founders. We regularly partner with other leaders and their organizations to deliver ambitious cross-sector projects.
What we do
We draw upon the complementary skills and experience of our partners - to drive bold action in response to problems for people and the planet.
At a time of widespread fear and disagreement about how to tackle some of these challenges, we’re focused on building hope. We show people what’s possible with practical examples, scaling what works, and building networks that engage business, society and governments.
Current projects include Countdown– a major global collaboration to tackle the climate crisis, in partnership with TED and others.
