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.
“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
Delighted to say we had a successful opening of Malden Manor Mosaic by Mayor Councillor Thay Thayalan with around 150 attending, thanks to a social media blitz by our amazing Secretary and Trustee, Tariq Shabbeer, despite 1,000,000 people otherwise disposed in Central London…
Below is a two minute video produced by New Malden Residents’ Association of the countdown and appearance by Principal Artist, Kim Pirrelli:
The inauguration of Save the World Club’s latest breathtaking MOSAIC designed to lead Pre-Raphaelite aficonados to the spot just beyond where Millais painted the backdrop for the Iconic “Ophelia”.
We hope you have an opportunity to view its magnificence at some point and walk the few yards to the spot where Millais worked on his painting just over the wooden pedestrian bridge that leads into Six Acre Meadow
Transforming a little used space into a tourist focus, just five minutes walk from Malden Manor Station, come and be awed by the craftsmanship of the numerous schools, religious groups and locals giving their creative best under the guidance of our expert Principle Artist; Kim Porelli.
Many thanks to all our supporters, sponsors, Community Officer Sophia Allinson whose idea this came from and RBK who helped us succeed with funding.
