Sustainable development requires human ingenuity. People are the most important resource.
When it seems like your efforts are insignificant against the sea of social issues, remember that the cumulation of small acts done by millions of people has the power to transform the world.
There are countless challenges in today's world, and although this can be disheartening at times, it's also exciting because it means that each and every one of us can play an active and necessary role in making a positive impact on our world and our future. Finding a common thread of concern in your corporation is a powerful way to embed purpose in your day-to-day working lives.
People For The Planet
Join one of the global movements working to protect our planet in a multitude of ways by spreading awareness and supporting solutions for global environmental issues such as deforestation, water pollution, climate change, waste disposal and resource consumption.
This is a perfect way to get involved in an issue that your company cares about and make a real difference!
If your team is more of a hands-on type, then an internal project can be organised to address a local issue.
The benefit of these programmes is that everyone has an opportunity to partake and contribute rather than designating the responsibility to a selected few.
Projects can range from fundraisers to rural upliftment or planting new forests. Whatever rings true to your organisation.
Another option for sustainability development is engaging in a long-term partnership with an established NPO in need of volunteers and business knowledge.
Your organisation will work together with your NGO partner to overcome current societal and environmental challenges. The combined effort creates an opportunity for accomplishments to be achieved that far surpass the initial ideas outlined.
