"We are all entering uncharted territory as we begin to return to business in a world altered by pandemic. Many of us are adapting to new operations or new business plans. This special newsletter is part of Sustainary's effort to continue to support, engage with and foster community amongst our network of climate actors in light of all that COVID-19 has brought. We encourage you to share this newsletter with your friends and colleagues!"

Impact Roasters Adaptable Actions
Now that we are getting back to our cafe culture, it’s time to put some thought into where your coffee is from. Our CloudHub member, Impact Roasters, is on a mission to provide high-quality coffee without the negative impacts. Click the link below to read about how they’ve been impacted by the crisis, changed their ethos to adapt and implement an online strategy where they sell coffee beans directly to consumers.

The advice they would give to others? "Stay dynamic and flexible, ask for help and be loyal/responsible"

Corona Funding:
Funding made possible in time of crisis 
Corona Funding is a new initiative founded by entrepreneurs who are committed to ensuring that both sustainable and impact startups and SMEs can weather the COVID-19 crisis and continue to provide their services into the future. Read more about them here

With partners across Europe, Corona Funding is providing financial assistance to organisations who have been directly impacted by COVID-19, but would otherwise be thriving. We at Sustainary are proud to be working with Corona Funding to ensure that sustainablity and impact focused companies can continue to save the world with their innovations. 
Partnership with #EUvsVirus
From April 24th to 27th, a pan-European hackathon took place centred around devising solutions for the COVID-19 crisis. With over 50 partners, including the EU Commission & EU Parliament, the hackathon saw over 20,900 contestants from the EU & beyond working to develop solutions in six domains, including Health & Life and Remote Working & Education. 

A total of over €100,000 pledged by partnering organisations will be distributed by the partners to winners of their choosing to reward hackers for their hard work and novel solutions with the greatest potential to save lives and bring life in a global pandemic closer to normal.
