Zanskar Protocol as an idea is founded on the belief of the power of common human effort at the grass root level and its ability to bring change and save earth's most precious ecosystems and natural habitats.
Today, this idea has culminated into a team individuals from different professional backgrounds and skillset who are volunteering their knowledge and know how to create this open source platform. They are our greatest strengths and bring multidisciplinary approach to creation, ideation and execution of different ideas and projects that we are testing as part of this project.
We are developing an idea researched start up project (currently in bootstrapping phase) to create an open source eco innovation platform to tackle challenges posed by climate change and environmental degradation. Our vision is based on
on four key focus pillars of sustainability, notably:
People, Planet, Products and Progress
We aim to do so by quantifying and developing metrics of measurement to identify the real time impact of environmental degradation on Earth's Climate and Planetary Boundaries and achieving this goal by:
- technological engagement,
- people participation and
- sustainable product design
Our current scope of work is spread across four priority sectors identified during the process of first innovation and design brainstorming which include:
- energy (zero carbon emission energy sources for power generation)
- transportation (urban & freight mobility),
- Fast Moving Consumer Goods (product sourcing strategies, supply chain management and corresponding environmental impact) and
- building and construction.
We are currently focussing our efforts on bringing people who care about planet and want to create solutions and products that generate profit with purpose for the progress in one single place. Our goal is to become universal platform to share ideas, co-develop eco-innovation products and democratize the knowledge and know how of climate change and technology to steer change at grass root level.
Our short term mission is to develop first ecosystem of the experts and micro eco-innovation projects which we believe are scalable across countries and territories facing similar climate change and global warming related challenges.
We hope to provide more information by beginning of Q2 2021.
