In the meantime, we’ll look at bringing in the principles of sustainability to our existing projects too (like Future Builders).
To achieve this, we’ve set ourselves 2 ambitious goals
We want to find, develop and invest in projects that help children and young people:
- Live in a sustainable community
That’s a place that protects the environment, and pushes for economic security and success. It’s where young people can thrive and start their best future. We’re excited to support ideas that fight for energy access and tackle youth poverty and homelessness in communities around the world.
- Learn how to take action on sustainability issues, and play a part in building sustainable communities
Solving the climate crisis is everyone’s responsibility, but sadly not all children and young people know how to make a difference. This is why, through our work, we aim to equip them with the knowledge and right skills they need to feel empowered to make positive change to the planet and protect it for years to come. Along the way, we’re tackling educational inequality too.
These goals will also help us contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals, set up by the UN and adopted by countries and businesses around the world. Our FAQs tell you more about how we do that.
We’re already bringing our new vision to life
We believe that every small action we do locally can ladder up to a positive change, globally. And it’s projects that do this we want to focus on – those that are meaningful to local communities.
We’re investing £1 million to start searching for projects that are in line with our new vision and goals. Read more about all the new partners we’re joining forces with here.
