We are working towards a sustainable, resilient, and secure future for the Earth and all its inhabitants.
Never before in history, so many people have been growing up in an urban environment like today. Since the Industrial Revolution, the world population has doubled. We are already emitting dangerous amounts of greenhouse gasses for over 100 years, which is causing the Earth to heat up. This is having major consequences for us as people and the planet.
Nature is not in a good state, and this is on us. Still, we are hardly acting on this knowledge. For most of us, the alarming messages in the media only give rise to a growing feeling of powerlessness. All the while when a fundamental shift in social, technological and economic structures is necessary. And we can all contribute to this shift. The Earth is changing; this is a fact. But how it will change, we can still determine ourselves.
From June 10 to 28, more than 60 people donated over € 4400 to our fundraiser for the sustainable speaker platform Speakers for Awareness. This has also gained us a permanent place on the nonprofit crowdfunding platform GlobalGiving. So the fundraising continues! A wonderful result which makes us very happy!
Update: on July 23rd, we are now at € 5549!

Participant Speakers for Awareness
Fortunately, behind the news reports on climate refugees, melting ice caps, floods, extreme droughts, extinct species and politicians in denial, a worldwide movement is growing. This movement of people is demonstrating things can be done differently. We want to shine a light on these initiatives. Will you join us?
