How do we get our friends to take their heads out of the sand?
Who are we?
Save the World Club (SWC) is an environmental creative arts, education and entertainment charity. At SWC’s heart is a commitment to improving the well-being of individuals and communities and protecting the environment demonstrating imaginative skills and solutions and having fun, so we can all live in healthier and more sustainable ways.
We aim to:
- provide leadership for local communities by generating ideas and offering practical and creative development and learning, modelled on sustainable living principles.
- empower young people to be agents of change through providing fun, arts and entertainment based learning and enabling them to lead projects in their homes, schools and communities.
- improve the quality of public spaces and services by working with the community to create and install mosaic art that reflects the aspirations and heritage of the local area.
- Help ensure that resources are used wisely through encouraging recycling and reuse.
