Harambee is an Austrian registered charity providing education and sustainable support to poor communities in Kilifi, Kenya. For that purpose Harambee is partnering with a Kenyan registered charity, GAPEKA.

Currently we are educating more than 900 children from extremely poor family backgrounds. Around 600 children are attending Kilifi Vonwald School, a combined Primary and Secondary School funded and maintained by Harambee. In addition, we are supporting about 300 children to learn at various other schools in the area and at higher education institutions. It is our mission to provide quality education up to a first vocational or academic qualification that allows our children to sustainably support themselves and their families.

Furthermore, we provide support to the families of our students with the aim of self-reliance and independence. We do so in form of microcredits and business mentoring, as well as in engaging the families in sustainable agriculture and water-management. In cooperation with local governmental offices, we also run relief programs to lift the burdens of natural disasters like droughts.

Our Mission: It is our aim to not only deliver help to our direct beneficiaries, the children and their families, but to support the community at large in the area around the coastal town of Kilifi. We aim to do so with a focus on sustainability, gender-equality and environmental impact.

The Papahānaumokuākea Marine Debris Project (PMDP) is a U.S. 501(c)(3) non-profit organization created to protect the sensitive wildlife and critical habitats of the Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument (Northwestern Hawaiian Islands) from the threats of marine debris.

PMDP conducts annual large-scale cleanups of marine debris from the remote and uninhabited islands and coral reefs of the Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument (northwestern Hawaiian Islands). Removing ghost nets and harmful ocean plastics from this sensitive ecosystem gives the wildlife there the best chance of survival. Over 70% of all US coral reefs are contained in this remote end of the Hawaiian island chain, which provides habitat for over 7000 different species of animals, including 23 endangered species. As one of the worldʻs most remote protected areas, Papahānaumokuākea should be a model for what pristine ecosystems should look like. Instead, it is a "canary in the coal mine" for the sheer scale of the global marine debris problem, with over 115,000 pounds of ghost net accumulating on the reefs there annually. Endangered Hawaiian monk seals (of which there are only 1400 left), and threatened green sea turtles are particularly impacted by this marine debris, routinely becoming entangled or dying of ingestion. PMDP is the only entity currently conducting cleanup operations in Papahānaumokuākea, and as such, the work that we do is of extra importance. Our goal is to match the rate of accumulation to the rate of removal by 2026 to ensure safe and healthy habitats for all wildlife.

Despite science-driven disruptive technological breakthroughs, the science of living well in the modern world lags behind. Science is slow to change, and scientists are slow to advocate for change. What we are witnessing today is the inability of science, technology, and politics to prevent the negative planetary consequences of an advanced industrial society.

Modern science’s gold standard is a mechanistic understanding of existing phenomena that then leads to control for profitable production in the current worldwide economy. A future that frees humanity from a life dominated by buying, selling, and consuming is utopian and cannot be tested. Yet, the amazing accomplishments of the existing society make utopia not only possible, but necessary. Overabundance and extreme poverty cannot continue to exist side by side in a “flat,” connected world. The harm created by disruptive innovation over the last two centuries is irrefutable, but science wants to prove harm in each individual case before taking remedial action, as preventing potential harm is too theoretical. However, when threats come at you from innumerable aspects of our “civilized” world, theoretical approaches become necessary. Change can start by adopting four basic strategies: 1. Take preventative action in the face of uncertainty; 2. Shift the burden of proof to proponents of an activity; 3. Explore the widest range of possible alternatives; and 4. Increase public participation in decision-making.

Given our power to both control and degrade the natural environment that supports us, we must stop ignoring caution in the name of progress and economic growth. The Moore Institute for Plastic Pollution Research will provide accurate data on global plastic pollution while advocating for fundamental change in the system that produces it.

Our Mission: The Moore Institute for Plastic Pollution Research is a non-profit organization dedicated to expanding knowledge surrounding the impact of plastic pollution on our environment, through focusing on micro- and nano- plastics research and their threat to the Biosphere worldwide.

The Story of Stuff Project was founded in 2008 to leverage the unexpected viral success of The Story of Stuff — a groundbreaking online documentary that tells the story of where our Stuff comes from, and where it goes when we throw it away. Since then, our trademark animated movies have garnered tens of millions of views, and our 2020 documentary The Story of Plastic won a News & Documentary Emmy. In addition to our storytelling, we field high-impact campaigns that empower our one-million+ Community members to drive meaningful change; and we support a network of innovative changemakers at the local, national and global level to tackle our most pressing environmental issues.

Our Mission: We have a problem with Stuff: we have too much of it, too much of it is toxic, and we don’t share it very well. But that’s not the way things have to be. The Story of Stuff Project's mission is to transform the way we make, use and throw away Stuff to create a world that is more sustainable, healthy and fair.

Coastal Crusaders community interest company utilises the natural beauty and unique activities that Cornwall our community, has to offer. Working with the local authority, schools and other not for profit organisations in our area. Our learning and sports are delivered at the beach, in the ocean, at schools and across various outdoor locations throughout Cornwall.

We mentor and encourage our participants to try new things, push beyond individual comfort zones, be resilient and give it their all, while improving focus through breath, learning new skills and in doing so, raising levels of confidence as they overcome challenges and achieve goals.

A large percentage of our work is creating opportunities for members of the community who can’t always access therapeutic natural activities un-supported, through financial hardship, lack of ambition, health, incorrect equipment and other personal challenges.

We are under no illusions that our natural playground will continue to be enjoyed forevermore and embrace opportunities to enhance the environment and mitigate climate change in the times ahead.

We are at the forefront of novel research to tackle globally important issues. For example, Coastal Crusaders are creating a method for an autonomous system to monitor coastal water quality and processes as a proxy for measuring habitat health. These habitats include salt marsh, seagrass and kelp forests. This work is in collaboration with Spaceport Newquay and the University of Portsmouth. Coastal Crusaders is also driving an exciting Cornwall-wide conservation and restoration initiative to conserve and restore Cornwall’s wetlands and their ecosystem services. These projects serve to improve ecosystem connectivity, with ecological and social uplift generated by nature-based solutions.

Mission Statement: Coastal Crusaders is a Community Interest Company committed to deliver education, creation of social environments, coupled with integration and advancements to health, fitness and interactivity . Under that umbrella, Coastal Crusaders drives Cornwall-wide ocean environmental projects addressing climate change, habitat resiliency to enhance coastal ecosystem services, nature-based solutions that link directly to SDG14 and the UN Decade of Ecosystem Restoration. Additionally, we use the AONB UNESCO World Heritage sites to deliver exciting and challenging ocean sports. This allows participants to immerse themselves in nature in a supported, encouraging environment.

African Marine Mammal Conservation Organization (AMMCO) is a Cameroonian non-profit organization created in 2012 and registered in 2014. Its vision is to make the coastal and aquatic environment of Africa a threat-free home for the African manatee and other marine wildlife, while taking into account the best interests of the local people. The mission of AMMCO is to reduce by 10% the major threats to the African manatee, other species of mega aquatic fauna and their habitats while improving the living conditions of local communities in Cameroon by 2025. 

To achieve our mission, we implement four strategies including synergies development for the marine wildlife conservation, improvement of knowledge on marine wildlife, reduction of the economic vulnerability of fishing communities (through alternative livelihood such as ecotourism) and marine wildlife law enforcement. Our target species are any aquatic megafauna living in our coast, however we focus our efforts on the African manatee, sea turtles, sharks and rays because they are more threatened locally than the other aquatic megafauna species.

Since 2015, AMMCO has been raising awareness through sensitization of fishermen and environmental education is schools. AMMCO has also developed a mobile App called Siren which is used by fishermen to report opportunistic sightings of marine species and facts associated. With data collected, we have been able to advocate for the legal conservation of four cetacean species in Cameroon. Currently, AMMCO is looking forward to contributing to the modification of the national law of fisheries and wildlife to meet the global standard in his project of fighting against Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated fishing. AMMCO is also working to establish an ecotourism program in Lake Ossa the improve the local perception towards the African manatee.
