Changing the way we think and act
We are impacting our world in a way which is not sustainable. Reactive action and current leadership doesn’t seem to be changing that. If we want to leave a world for future generations that is enjoyable and prosperous, we need to not only change what we are doing, but also how we are thinking about things.
‘The definition of insanity – doing the same things over and over again and expecting different results.’ – Albert Einstein
We would like our legacy to be one that goes beyond sustainability to restore and rejuvenate the communities and eco-systems that we live in. We want to help create a new economy that is balanced and inclusive. Because of this we have created Our Legacy.
The Legacy Project is a registered charity launched in 2010 focused on unlocking potential in and empowering women and young people across the UK. Since then Legacy has grown and is now supporting the development of disadvantaged individuals and entrepreneurs from around the world.
We do this through the following initiatives:
We fund these projects through resource contribution, strategic partnerships with like-minded organisations and fund raising activities such as the Shine Foundation Auction.
For us creating balance in the world means finding a sustainable and inclusive way to live in our communities and eco-system. We are inviting individuals around the world to help us create solutions for positive change.
This new initiative is in the planning phase and aims to provide an alternative to traditional learning focusing on passion and talents for anyone to access around the world.
Started in 2012, the Positive for Youth Awards provide recognition and rewards for young people who have made a positive contribution to community, music, media, the arts and performance.
Funding, support and resources to develop and empower women around the world. The Foundation will focus on marganalised women and provide them with the support needed to empower themselves and the communities that they live in.
