How it works

How we like to get stuff done

  1. Doing, not talking

    It's not that hard to talk clever and think big; there's an oversupply of that in our world. Too often big thinking doesn't lead to big doing, yet there are so many problems that need a bit of Do. Roll up your sleeves and fail gloriously. Good for Nothing is permission to have a go, get involved, participate and try stuff.

  2. Collaborate and experiment

    These are words we all hear a lot. But true collaboration – where real diversity and openness is welcomed, where we let go of power and control, where we self-organise and allow ideas and energy to emerge more naturally and where we prototype and develop them rapidly – is hard to come by. We want more of it.

  3. Support the true innovators

    We give creative energy to the real innovators trying to make positive change happen. Most of the exciting social, environmental and human innovation is happening at the grass-roots. We provide creative support to those pioneers. We think that can help accelerate positive change and impact.

Hang on, How do you fund all of this?

It's a good question, and one we're asked often, so we've written a little guide to our funding.
