The Climate Crisis is something that we desperately need to solve. What humanity has been doing to address it has not adequately worked. New collaborative and collective approaches are now required as we have less than five years to act decisively and on a global scale. Then we must continue acting for the next 30 years in order to fully succeed. No single organization, institution or government is going to move the needle on the climate crisis. It is time for humanity to foundationally change how we live in this world. Only all of us working together can achieve sustainability and renew the natural ecosystem. 

We are gathering capable stakeholders from many different disciplines to collaborate for two days. In this workshop environment, we will engage this diverse group’s unique skill sets to creatively build new networks and solutions to effect catalytic changes that significantly move the needle on the climate crisis. 


  • 1

    Recognition that we now need a global shift in consciousness, collaborative approach, solutions paradigm and AI-based platform technology to organize, develop and deliver crisis resolution solutions, resources and technologies that are available to all.

  • 2

    Workshop participants will help define the capacities required for the global community to generate scalable solutions to solve the climate crisis in the time available.

  • 3

    Workshop participants recognize the vital importance of their commitment to long-term collaboration with each other in order to generate the required scalable capacity between the world's stakeholders, networks and thought leaders.

  • 4

    Establish a prototype for climate crisis resolution workshops to be offered to the world in order to foster global collaboration.

  • 5

    Engage and unite high capacity, motivated workshop participants in lasting collaborative partnership with WSS for the building of the PHOENIX platform.

AI augmented collaboration is the antidote to the climate crisis.

Our current way of life and technology base and way of developing solutions is creating the climate crisis. 

Our current non-collaborative and unscalable approaches, however well intended, will not solve the climate crisis in the time available. A new paradigm is required!

We must collaboratively and collectively define and enact new approaches and paradigms. 

Participants realize we must build the collective global capacity in order to affect necessary transformational change into sustainability, now!

There is no higher or superordinate goal or priority. Sustainability and reharmonization with the planet is the goal and priority, all others are secondary.

There must be scalable, dedicated centralized global commons systems and technology to affect this new paradigm.

Accept and understand that we must now act to foundationally restructure our ways of life, ways of developing and using all technology and our collective economic processes to generate full sustainability.

It is vital that the ecosystem and all other species be represented as equal to human populations in all systems of global governance and solutions developments from now on.

We must create a highly organized global collaborative community effort to transform the world into sustainability now!

We must all learn to do more with less and to live and have less moving forward.

We must learn and accept that there is NO option for limitless growth of any organization, nation or economy within a finite planetary and ecosystem resources space.

Growth must be transcended as a standard of success by all nations, economies, organizations and peoples.

There is no potential for a future nation winner, in any military, combative or economic competitive process that does not bring about global economic collapse.

We can only now collaborate and work together in hope, trust and faith for the common good if we as national entities want to continue in a viable way.

As the various pressures of the climate crisis increase, there is no future for global or national humanity that is viable that is not based on love, trust, faith, collaboration, inclusiveness, fairness, equality, ethics and morals.

Our current systems are not designed to, nor are they ready to solve the climate crisis.  We need a new system, approach and paradigm.
