“Founders of Tomorrow (Danske iDeer) gave me the ‘why not?’ mindset and ideas about exponential technology and its new business models.”
- Former participant

About the 1.5ºC Challenge

In October 2018, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) came out with a report highlighting the impacts that could be avoided if global warming was limited to 1.5°C compared to 2°C, or more. By keeping global warming in 1.5°C, we could, for instance, reduce loss of some ecosystems, limit impact on human health and wellbeing and lessen the global sea level rise.

This is an issue that calls for diverse and innovative solutions from diverse actors. Founders of Tomorrow has answered this call, and together we will be in search of new solutions using innovative technologies and business models to tackle this challenge from different angles.

The Sustainable Development Goals will be guiding us in this quest.
