Have Fun, Be Inspired, Make a Change
Save the World Club is relocating
Save the World Club (SWC) is moving to new premises after enjoying a long and happy tenure at the Kingston Environment Centre (KEC). The inspiration for the Kingston Environment Centre originated from SWC and associated groups who wanted to create an ‘environmental hub’ for Kingston, and since then KEC has become a successful charity in its own right.
From the 22nd April 2013 Save the World Club will be based at Unit 6, Park Works, 16-18 Park Road, Kingston-upon-Thames, KT2 6BG. Further details will be circulated shortly and available on our website http://www.savetheworldclub.org and Facebook http://www.facebook.com/SWCKingston.
Over the next year SWC will be extending its activities beyond a purely environmental focus to address the broader social and economic dimensions of sustainability, developing practical projects that build resilience in communities through improving well-being and promoting citizenship. We will continue to build on our long and strong history of environmentally friendly activities, Professor Kayos, Green Police, creative arts and expanding the scope and reach of our mosaic art services to new audiences and continuing to enliven public spaces in and around the borough. SWC’s legacy includes 50 mosaic art installations made for communities by communities, many of which can be seen in locations across Kingston.
SWC’s holistic approach and blend of activities reflects our belief that being happy, healthy and living sustainably are inextricably linked. Active participation and citizenship are prerequisites for healthier and sustainable living and central to the way SWC works.
Over the next few weeks we will be contacting current and new partners to discuss potential collaboration opportunities as well as to invite you to visit us at our new home. We extend a warm thank you to all our partners for their support over the years and to our funders and supporters, in particular Kingston Council. We look forward to continuing to work with you to promote happier, healthier and more sustainable lives.
