Last week in our pop-up shop, we threw a party!
We wanted to share with others the great success of our campaign and to explore what we can do to enable core cost funding for our team.
This is new territory for us - not only where we are, in the beautiful Cotswolds town of Tetbury, but also in terms of where we go next with what we are doing. We love the fact that people all over the world could be Earth Protectors to fund ecocide crime to be taken in to the United Nations (the world's first crowdfund for international law) - and many of you who are trustees agree with us. Thank you - we've realised a concept that's never been done before, and we've shown that it works.
If you are in the UK and can come to the Cotswolds, please do drop in and meet us while our pop-up exhibition is still showing... any time between 11am and 5pm daily from now until 31st of March.
Inside this beautiful space (gifted by Amy Perry and with windows fabulously illustrated by Emily Seffar) you will find the remarkable wire horse sculptures of Katy Dunne as well as the nature photography of Andy Squiff and Ruth Davey framing the panels that tell the story of Ecocide Law, Conscientious Protectors and Mission LifeForce. Our campaign generates funds for the smallest countries in the world so they can take ecocide crime forward at the International Criminal Court.
However, those funds are ring-fenced. Our team does not receive monies from the Earth Protectors Trust Fund, and so now we are turning our attention to funding the team, our new premises, and scaling up our operations, back-end support and security to enable the global impact that is our true remit. If you can help us make this leap, please let us know!
Meanwhile, keep sharing the website... the more Earth Protectors we are, the stronger the support we will collectively provide to those small states when they are ready to speak out.
