How do we get our friends to take their heads out of the sand?

On the one hand we have mostly good,comfortable lives where we have more than enough – on the other, there are disasters around the world taking place almost daily, and on an unprecedented scale.
So we can balance our lives by enjoying what is good whilst embracing the bad. That is, dedicating some of your time to tackling some aspects of the “bad”.
We need to convince all those in our lives to get on the case. No particular way…What ever presses their buttons. Whether it’s a protest organisation, a lobbying group, being one of thousands signing a petition, just doing something to help is making the difference.
Having been sewing the seeds for 30 years since STWC was founded, We’re delighted that Extinction Rebellion marks a sea change in awareness of just how serious an environmental crisis we are a part. Time for drastic actions by all.
Proud to include XR Logo as part of ours. 
We are showing our collective power and it is starting to shift us away from the selfish, destructive short-term future that those in “authority” seem to cling on to. We know that is going to impact on ourselves and future generations and most of us are only too aware that we cannot continue to be part of a system that depletes our resources at a faster rate than they can be created.
 Be inspired. Have fun. Make a change!

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.

  • 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.

“People always do everything wrong to nature and themselves. Man seems to have one function on earth: to destroy himself. The nature of the plant world is always constructive. It is always the teacher, in the creative as well as the ecological sense.” Friedensreich Hundertwasser

“Saving the world is not too hard, you just have to start in your own backyard.” Des Kay
