Our Commitment to People & Planet

 

AddyPresFoundation is a proud NONPROFIT PARTNER of the 1% for the Planet Global Organization. This means that we are part of a recipient network that gains support to help accomplish our work for People & Planet.

We made the decision to join 1% for the Planet's global network because we share the environmental and social values of the organization and it's members and we want to PARTICIPATE in real solutions for the world we are handing to our children.

We believe that it is our responsibility as adults, parents, educators and a global community, to make our children aware of the social & environmental challenges that will impact their lives and to build their life skills so they have the opportunities to participate in solutions. This is a value we bring FAMILY, EDUCATION, COMMUNITY & COMMERCE together to do, with a goal to create a BETTER world for PEOPLE & PLANET, now and for generations to come.

The Work Our 1% Commitment Enables

As part of our commitment, we work within the 1% for the Planet network to connect educators, families, communities and responsible commerce partners to tools and resources for impactful mentor partnerships, social emotional development and environmental stewardship. We accomplish this work through a three tier infrastructure that first, builds our educator recipient network's commitment through our strategic Give Program, high level K-12 SEL & Stewardship tools, support for real world learning & responsible career path opportunities; resulting in a pipeline of stewards who are better prepared, with compassionate skills for success within the diverse and rapidly shifting 21st century world they are being handed.

Together, with the 1% organizations, our work provides opportunities for students, youth, families, educators & communities to participate in environmental solutions, through tools that address root causes & help regenerate our natural resources now and in the future. Please feel free to contact us to learn more about this work and how you can support us.

WHY OUR WORK IS SO IMPORTANT for PEOPLE. for PLANET. for THEM

Environmental Crisis IS IMPACTING EVERY Ecosystem on the Planet, Calling for Action on Unprecedented Levels.

United Nations Secretary General, Antonio Guterres recently remarked, "It is hard to overstate the urgency of our situation. Even as we witness devastating climate impacts causing havoc across the world, we are still not doing enough, nor moving fast enough, to prevent irreversible and catastrophic climate disruption. We are in trouble. We are in deep trouble with climate change.”

Indeed, the United Nations Scientific panel on Climate Change, a group of scientists convened to guide world leaders, predict catastrophic consequences of climate change, including worsening food shortages, wildfires, and mass die off of coral reefs as soon as 2040. Yet fossil fuel emissions continue to rise, making climate change arguably, the MOST prominent global concern of our time.

In October 2018, this scientific panel found that "nations have barely a decade to take UNPRECEDENTED ACTIONS to cut their emissions IN HALF."

Our work brings high level TOOLS & RESOURCES into the hands of mentors who help build a pipeline of young stewards prepared to participate in tackling root causes that will regenerate.
