Your climate archetype is:

The Entrepreneur

Human creativity is unlimited. It is the capacity of humans to make things happen which didn’t happen before. Creativity provides the key to solving our social and economic problems.

-Muhammad Yunus

The Entrepreneur finds joy in uncovering opportunities and taking risks.

Let me paint you your nightmare scenario: Sitting in a boring office, working a monotonous job for hours and hours and hours on end. Terrified yet? For you, taking risks isn’t scary—the thought of letting great opportunities pass you by is.

The Entrepreneur is uniquely capable of pinpointing needs.

You’re a quick learner and an even quicker doer. When faced with a challenge, you take it on with confidence—or delegate the perfect people to do it instead.

The Entrepreneur often acts before they think.

You can probably think of a couple times when your risk-taking tendencies have landed you in hot water. But, more often than not, it’s precisely your initiative that gives you an advantage in your endeavours. And who’s afraid of a little hot water?

The Entrepreneur can help imagine a more sustainable and prosperous world.

A wildly creative mind paired with a can-do attitude equals the ideal person for identifying the countless opportunities for improvement in our world that have been revealed by the climate crisis. By all means, let’s tear down the problematic parts of our current systems—but people like you are going to come up with the things that will take their place. Check out the resources below to find out how The Entrepreneur champions climate action.
