FUNDRAISING PARTNER | CATALYSE CHANGE
Our Founder Amelia is thrilled to be on the advisory board for Catalyse Change CIC, a Bristol-based social enterprise supporting girls and young women to develop sustainability skills and knowledge for ‘healthy, happy and green’ communities, careers and planet.
Their mission is to ignite the ambitions of young women with the skills and belief to catalyse the change they want to see in the world.
The world is facing serious environmental and social problems and empowered women are crucial to sustainability; at the same time, young girls are facing a crisis of confidence at a critical time in their development.
Catalyse Change helps young women to identify the change they want to see in the world; and to build their knowledge, skills, resilience, confidence & wellbeing so that they can realise that change. Catalyse Change believes that supporting young women to realise their voice and agency, is crucial to creating a sustainable society.
They produce inspiring, empowering and skilling programmes and digital content, they include:
Catalyst bootcamp: A residential programme providing girls & young women with the inspiration, confidence and skills they need to make a positive difference. For those who are interested in a career in sustainability but aren’t yet sure how to achieve it.
Mentoring programme: Professional women working in sustainability are matched with a young woman to support her on learning and career journey.
School & community outreach: Workshops for young people to support their green education and career path – framed by the UN Sustainable Development Goals – as well as bespoke workshops around gender equality and unconscious bias.
We’ve chosen to support Catalyse Change throughout May and June as our fundraising partner - raising donations for their work to support the next generation of young women.
