We are most passionate about climate change. I think it is the impending crisis that makes us want to act quickly and get the issue under control.
More and more people are becoming aware of the negative effects of climate change and are looking for ways to do something about it. Anthony Robertson created Save the World Foundation when he realized we had no organization specifically made for solving the big issues before they get to far. He watched as climate change grew worse and government moved slowly along with demand for business. With a 10 year plan to mitigate climate change that includes the help of some of the biggest organizations in the world SWF is creating a positive impact.
We can all contribute to the transition to a sustainable economic system. As a consumer, you can try to buy less and more sustainable items, plant trees and buy local. Here you will find tips to get involved yourself, read the interview to find out more.
Can you tell us what’s special about your foundation?
The Save the World Foundation is the only non- government organization dedicated to reducing greenhouse gas emissions at this scale. We have hundreds of supporters around the world helping us get emissions down to near zero on a country wide scale.
What is the inspiration behind Save the World Foundation?
SWF was started by Anthony Robertson, a young ecologist and entrepreneur looking to make a difference in the world like many of you reading this today. His innovation and perseverance has made the organization what it is today.
What green issues are you most passionate about?
We are most passionate about climate change. I think it is the impending crisis that makes us want to act quickly and get the issue under control. Once we have achieved our climate goals around the world and the clock has stopped ticking we have plans to move on to more world issues and tackle them one by one over the next 50 years or so.
What advice would you have for other aspiring social and green entrepreneurs?
My advice to aspiring social and environmental entrepreneurs is to remember we are in a business world. Nonprofits (like ours) and charities often focus so much on the issue at hand that they forget about the business side of things and ultimately go bankrupt. Your main goal is always your cause and always should be, but don’t forget to add some value for your supporters, from businesses to the public. Unfortunately, we have to play the business game in order to succeed, don’t forget to make your next move, so you can continue supporting your cause.
