Our Change Pilars
We enable change and support grass route initiatives that sits under 3 pillars; Trees, Seas and Species.
Tree planting 'has mind-blowing potential' to tackle climate crisis. We recognise the simplicity of this action and target all our efforts under this Pillar to mobilise and support tree planting and reforestation initiatives globally.
Our founding project - "1BN Trees" works to support the United Kingdom target of 1.5 Billion Trees to be planted by 2050 to tackle Climate Change. We will work with multiple grass-route projects to funnel our funding and resources to achieve this target.
To kickstart this project, we are going to be arranging a series of park and nature clean ups across the UK. For every person that attends the clean up, our foundation will plant a tree via designated projects around the UK. Stay tuned for more detail on this in January 2020
The oceans have always been a mystery to mankind, appearing vast, strong and resilient. This misconception leads to the belief that the oceans will always be teeming with life and makes it difficult to fathom that once-bountiful ocean life is fading fast.
With one of our co-founders, Benjamin being an avid and experienced diver, restoring the health of our oceans is one of founders core missions. Together they are launching the "Divers for Oceans" a global community of experienced divers, connecting them to ocean clean-ups globally.
We ask the divers to donate their time and experience, we sponsor the equipment, boats and post-disposal of the waste with partner dive centres in waste hot-spots around the world!
Some species have been pushed so close to extinction, they need special help to survive, whilst others have simply faded away without notice. Our C.I.C is committed to invested resources, funding and time into understanding how we can develop front-line solutions to tackle issues such as human wildlife conflict, poaching, bush-meat farming and many other societal challenges that are driving thriving species to near extinction.
With our depth of knowledge in disruptive technology and innovative business models the Leaving A Legacy C.I.C makes it our mission to develop solutions that will tackle these very challenge to ensure the survival of all wild species across the planet.
