Are you part of Die Neue Welt? Get on the Map!

“Die Neue Welt”, the new book from The DO Founder Florian Hoffmann, opens the digital stage for all courageous DOers who have already set out to create a better tomorrow.

In times of the pandemic, war, social injustice and nonstop news about a global environmental collapse, it can be hard to imagine that “A New World” helping to solve these challenges already exists. Making its courageous creators visible is the idea behind “Die Neue Welt”, Florian Hoffmann’s new book that opens into the digital space. With an online platform to showcase powerful stories of hope, it gives a stage to innovators who are already building a new world together, and there are many more following their example every day.

At we invite entrepreneurs, managers, DOers, employees, activists, leaders and influencers with a business, project, or initiative that has a positive impact on people, society and our planet to get on the new world map. Let’s show that alongside all of the dangers and threats, there are people from all over the globe creating a new world that is equitable, innovative and sustainable. We hope to make a place for people to come to be inspired, connect with great projects and share their stories of the new world. 

On the website, we also feature some of the protagonist stories from the book, such as three-time Nobel Peace Prize nominee, Scilla Elworthy, Mina Guli, who ran through seven deserts in seven weeks to draw attention to our global water waste, and many more inspiring stories for you to read. 

Mina Guli perfectly summarizes the idea behind this platform:

“Too often, we look at these big global challenges, and we think, 'It’s too big, I’m just one person’. The reality is we are all capable of doing anything.”
