Meet SHOCK/WAVE: COVID-19 Innovation Tracker

SHOCK/WAVE is tracking interventions globally.
SHOCK/WAVE is tracking interventions globally.

Hey there!

Thanks for continuing to support fact-based journalism during this precarious time in the world. The world needs folks like you more than ever. 

I wanted to take a moment to share with you Orb's latest effort, SHOCK/WAVE, a groundbreaking sustainability innnovation discovery tool.  

We know it's easier to envision a more resilient and sustainable world after COVID-19 with examples. With this in mind, Orb Media presents a global database of the ways humans are innovating in this time of massive change. We hope to make sustainable innovation simpler to find, report and act on. 

By gathering projects from around the world in SHOCK/WAVE, media can source stories and experts more easily. Investors, directing funds, can do the same.

Collaborators can easily find like-minded interventions, organizations events and leaders, so they can scale more quickly. 

By collecting big-picture data on COVID-19 sustainability work, we can map where and how successful action is being taken, so everyone can play a role in accelerating what works.

As you check it out, take note of some of the site's unique features.

  • Throughout the site, our researchers are hand-curating collections of emerging themes in sustainability, so you can always stay on top of what's trending.
  • You can also subscribe to customized updates as new innovations emerge, so just the right combination of topics and geographies will be delivered directly to your inbox.
  • Most importantly, you can submit your work for inclusion on the site, so your great work can reach more people. 

We're excited for you to try out our beta product and let us know what you think. As always, I invite you to email me at to share ideas for how to make this platform even better.

CEO, Orb Media
