We have made a donation through our membership of 1% for the Planet to We The Curious, an educational charity with sustainability at the heart of their work.
We The Curious describe their mission as 'to build a culture of curiosity where everyone can ask questions, explore and test ideas out together. By creating equal spaces where people can enjoy science as messy, creative and collaborative we can solve our greatest human challenges, together.'
Their science and arts centre is based here in Bristol, and they deliver free educational opportunities to six of Bristol’s most disadvantaged wards. They also reach millions more with their live online science videos which are viewed by teachers and learners worldwide.
We think projects like this are a great way to tackle environmental issues in a positive way. Education is vitally important in the fight against climate change and We The Curious are inspiring the next generation of change makers. Their engaging and thought provoking projects motivate all of us to make sustainable lifestyle choices.
We The Curious are a key member of the Bristol Green Capital Partnership and were also one of the first organisations in the city to publicly declare a climate emergency. They are committed to becoming the most sustainable science centre in the UK, and their innovative sustainable approaches include the city’s first LED lit car park, green roofs and bee hives.
We are delighted to be supporting such an inspiring charity here in Bristol. You can read more about their educational opportunities and sustainable projects on their website.
