The Lemelson Foundation
The Lemelson Foundation www.lemelson.org

The Lemelson Foundation uses the power of invention to improve lives.   Established by prolific US inventor Jerome Lemelson and his wife Dorothy in the early 1990s, and guided today by the Lemelson family, The Lemelson Foundation (the Foundation) believes invention can solve many of the biggest economic and social challenges of our time. A private philanthropy, the Foundation has assets of approximately $450 million and an annual budget of approximately $20 million. All told, the Foundation has provided over $300 million in grants and other investments to hundreds of organizations around the world. The Foundation approaches its work to strengthen the invention ecosystem and empower inventors to solve the biggest global challenges and opportunities of our time, using a three-part framework called Impact Inventing:   Inventions should have positive social impact; Inventions should be environmentally responsible—from the materials and processes used through final products that go to market; and, Business models should become financially self-sustaining.   The Foundation has created a culture of collaboration, continuous learning, and innovation. An entrepreneurial environment with flexibility and opportunities for impact has allowed the small team (10-15) to have an outsized impact in the social landscape of invention.

Center of Environmental Health ceh.org

OUR MISSIONCEH protects people from toxic chemicals by working with communities, consumers, workers, government, and the private sector to demand and support business practices that are safe for public health and the environment.OUR VALUESHealth and Well-beingPeople and their health and well-being are our ultimate concerns. Air, water, food, and consumer products should be free of dangerous and untested chemicals.Corporate Accountability and TransparencyManufacturers of chemicals and products should be required to test their own products for safety, make that data public, and choose the alternatives that are safest for people and the environment.The Precautionary PrincipleDecision makers in government and business should heed the early warnings of Science. When credible evidence exists that a chemical can cause harm, business and government decision makers should err on the side of protecting people’s health.Social and Environmental JusticeTo protect the health of all people, we must address the disproportionate health effects of toxic chemicals caused by systemic racism and other social injustices. The movement to eliminate dangerous chemicals must move forward in partnership with Environmental Justice, Reproductive Justice, and other related movements working to address the pressing social justice issues of our day.Healthy EconomyA healthy economy is one in which people’s fundamental needs are met efficiently, businesses are accountable, resources are shared in a way that minimizes disparities, and overall levels of consumption are sustainable. The true measure of a society’s health is not how much it consumes, but rather how effectively it meets the fundamental needs of all its people.Healthy DemocracyCorporate influence over environmental health policy, regulation and enforcement, through campaign contributions and other means, undermines democracy and puts the health of people at risk. Court decisions have given corporations rights that should only be held by people. We believe that corporations are not people, and money is not speech.CollaborationBy working together, government, community members, NGOs, and responsible businesses can eliminate the growing threat to human health posed by toxic chemicals and irresponsible business practices.

The Week
The Week www.theweek.ooo

To solve the climate crisis, we need mass mobilization- millions of people who transform their workplace and communities from within and who join together to consume differently and to create political pressure that effects change.We face an abyss. The classic playbook “Give people the facts and they will wake up and act” failed to achieve mass mobilization. The Week offers a more powerful playbook, deeply informed by recent insights on the psychology of climate change and by research on past movements that successfully broke through a grim status quo.Our goal is to ignite the "broad middle"  - the majority who are aware, concerned, and maybe even alarmed, but they are not yet engaged, because they don't know how or what to do.The heart of The Week is a 3-session experience over the course of one week (hence the name) in a small group–friends, family, coworkers, schoolmates, or worshippers. During each session, the group watches an episode of a powerful documentary together, carefully scripted to unlock emotional reckoning and spark vulnerable and profound group conversation (for which we provide extensive guides). Early tests are very promising in terms of virality. We ran a rough prototype version of The Week to test the film scripts in 2021 with a group of 60 participants. They were so deeply moved that they’ve since organized over 600 follow-up  sessions with friends, family members and colleagues, reaching thousands of people. You can organize your session here. One large corporation reached out to ask if they could share this prototype version internally with 10,000 people.
