We are GJM

The growing negative impact of climate change on the world is overwhelming.

None experiences the impact of climate change more than Frontline Communities who are disproportionately vulnerable to social, economic, health and environmental injustices – and this is leading to deteriorating inequity for them.

If we stay on the current trajectory 216 million people are at risk of internal displacement by 2050 (World Bank).

Acknowledging and addressing climate change doesn’t translate into a zero-sum game. Using our proprietary ResilienceIndex™ and ResilienceAI™ we translate data into consequential solutions for climate change and creating meaningful jobs in marginalized, frontline communities, while simultaneously buoying existing financial, industrial, agricultural and energy systems.

Our purpose at GJM is to invest in Resilience using our ResilienceAI™ and build meaningful income generation while reversing climate change.

“Exponentially scaling Resilience to climate change in Frontline Communities, globally”

Join the collective

We define Resilience as

“The ability to prepare for, respond, adapt to and thrive in adverse climate conditions.”

Resilience underpins every UN Sustainable Development Goal. Lives, property, houses, infrastructure, ecosystems, and livelihoods are endangered.

By engaging with front-line communities and supporting locally led adaptation; we tap into their wisdom, entrepreneurial talent, and knowledge, while providing them with the resources for future-focussed investments that create Green Jobs, reverses poverty, inequity, and climate change.

GJM supports and is supported by the Alliance for a Climate Resilient Earth (ACRE)

The time to invest in resilience is now

In building Climate Change Resilience, our approach is always twofold:

1. How to redress the symptoms causing, and damages caused by climate change – using Emergency Response Technology for recovery

2. Proactively structuring new Green Jobs platforms for a future that advances resilience and reverses climate change – reinforcing communities to stay healthy, safe, powered, fed and secure using our proprietary ResilienceIndex™, ResilienceAI™ and Infrastructure Technologies

“The challenge of pollution and global warming is no longer the science, or the rate of innovation, but the rate of implementation: We have the clean solutions; now let’s bundle them and install them.” ~ Jens Martin Skibsted “The challenge of pollution and global warming is no longer the science, or the rate of innovation, but the rate of implementation: We have the clean solutions; now let’s bundle them and install them.” ~ Jens Martin Skibsted

How does GJM intend to do it?

GJM use humanity’s most advanced technologies ResilienceAI™ and the ResilienceIndex™ to create Green Jobs on a massive scale; so that we progressively invest in turning around climate change and wealth creation in the worlds disadvantaged, exploited and marginalized communities.

To create options, hope and possibility for those who don’t have, and create a platform for massive creativity and potential to change the world for good.

What are Green Jobs?

Any job that helps to conserve natural resources and has a net positive impact on the environment

Wetlands restorationWeatherization and energy efficiencyRenewable energy storage solutionsWaste removal and recyclingTree plantingStorm water clean upWater and wastewater treatmentPublic green space construction and maintenance
Cloud Computing & Data CentersCloud computing is the on-demand availability of computer system resources, especially data storage (cloud storage) and computing power, without direct active management by the user. Large clouds often have functions distributed over multiple locations, each location being a data center.BlockchainBlockchain is a shared, immutable ledger that facilitates the process of recording transactions and tracking assets in a business network. An asset can be tangible or intangible. Drone technologyDrone technology covers everything about drones, from drone aerodynamics and materials of manufacture to the sensors, circuit boards, frames, chipset, and software that are the brains of the drone. DJI is certainly the most famous brand for drones in the world and has the largest share in the open market.AI & Machine LearningArtificial Intelligence refers to the general ability of computers to emulate human thought and perform tasks in real-world environments, while Machine Learning refers to the technologies and algorithms that enable systems to identify patterns, make decisions, and improve themselves through experience and data.5G Networks5G is the 5th generation mobile network and enables a new kind of network that is designed to connect virtually everyone and everything together including machines, objects, and devices.
