Research and ideation for a just new world

Dr. Monk designs interventions to catapult us into a more just, green and compassionate future.

Our offices are in Ghana and The Netherlands and we work internationally, allowing us to combine different perspectives and connect unusual suspects. Our team consists of engaged researchers, innovators and strategists. We're in cahoots with a worldwide society of pioneers and changemakers that inspire us daily.

From working with communities in different places, to strategizing with influential leaders to create structural change, our work is like social acupuncture. We strive to develop and support exactly those ideas and interventions that unleash much needed societal shifts. Want to stay updated on what we learn and do? Join our newsletter list here.

Our clients call us when they need brainpower, creativity and systems thinking to solve real issues, with positivity sprinkled on top. There are three ways you can work with us:

Research projects

Want to solve a social challenge? In these tailored research and ideation projects, we dig deep to unearth hidden treasures and emerge with solutions to issues of equality and sustainability. Our dream partners and clients are those who are ready and able to scale their impact. Have a look at our project portfolio or get in touch to learn more.

Events and sessions

Want a gathering that is high on energy, creativity and positive impact? In the online and offline events we produce and facilitate, we together shape, knead and mould ideas that inspire and activate. We've worked with country Ministers, climate negotiators, pioneering boards, and others that think and act big. To work with us or spar about your idea, get in touch.

Culture shifting creations

Step into a whole new world! We self-initiate projects that we hope will make a difference in the deepest layers of our society. Those where are values and worldviews live. From art festivals to, well, churches. Check out the Church of Climate Change or our first Ananse project, for instance.

What is the Church of Climate Change?

We've started a fresh, inclusive church that takes on the realities of climate change. Within our community we reflect on the state of our environment and come up with actions that will help you Leave It Better Than You Found It.
