Wildchain: A Non-profit Conservation Innovation Lab | Climate Finance, Thailand 2018
Wildchain is a non-profit conservation innovation lab with the mission to inspire & empower individuals and organizations to protect our endangered species and their habitats.
Wildchain brings together people to protect our planet’s endangered species and ecosystem by creating shared value between social entertainment and real-world impact. Wildchain lets people digitally adopt and raise some of earth’s rarest species within a digital sanctuary they can call home. Users are passively contributing to conservation and reforestation projects solely by participating in this entertainment ecosystem. Users may also actively allocate where their donations go on a fully transparent kickstarter-like platform which will represent the impact they have created.
Beyond games, Wildchain is also gamifying the donation experience itself with unlockable challenges, leader boards, awards, and competitions to empower and mobilise a community of changemakers.
The concept of Wildchain was developed during the SEED Practitioner Labs Climate Finance Thailand in 2018.
The SEED Practitioner Labs Climate Finance in Thailand engaged financial institutions, funders, intermediaries and other SME ecosystem stakeholders over a multi-step process to co-create innovative climate finance products and mechanisms that extend access to long-term financing opportunities for “missing middle” small and growing climate-smart enterprises that struggle to advance beyond the start-up stage and multiply their contributions to climate-smart and socially inclusive economies.
