Why Climate Explorers?
We wanted a name that would reflect our mission going forward which is exploring climate solutions through eco-adventures and sharing them with the world through media.
From the success of the Pedal 4 Parks impact campaign we decided to become a community interest company (CIC) to grow our mission to highlight climate solutions, raise environmental awareness and promote physical and mental wellbeing through eco-adventures in the great outdoors.
Our first big project was completing our first documentary under our brand Pedal 4 Parks. It featured the world’s first cycle over sea and land from Orkney to the Isles of Scilly, alongside interviews with experts in the environmental space and visits to innovative projects across the UK.
It was the culmination of our efforts to grow our impact campaign, as well as raise funds to support the National Parks Protectors Fund.
What is a Community Interest Company?
A community interest company is a type of company introduced by the United Kingdom government in 2005 under the Companies Act 2004, designed for social enterprises that want to use their profits and assets for the public good.
What activities will we be doing now?
We support local communities, organisations and businesses by providing advice and guidance on sustainable initiatives and innovations. This guidance and advice come from the production of educational content about climate solutions we have explored and uncovered across the world, to increase awareness, collaborative implementation, and innovation of these solutions. Awareness and education are key to driving funding and connecting stakeholders to the information needed to enhance commitments, engagement and scaling up of these initiatives to make a real impact. This will then help accelerate the measures required for implementing climate solution projects globally to build an economy that is more adaptable and resilient to climate change.
We provide training and workshops, communication (media and film) and events (speaking/discussion panels/workshops) to educate, raise awareness and drive change within organisations. Here are some examples of benefits:
Employees of businesses looking to become more sustainable will be provided workshops to practically support and guide them. In addition, we can give employee motivation/entertainment opportunities through inspirational story-telling to improve employee productivity.
We educate pupils at educational institutions on the importance of nature’s role for our planet’s ecosystems, and why it needs protection for physical and mental health. In addition to this, we provide mental health and outdoor education to develop a nature caring mindset in children.
We encourage community members to support other charities that are working at a grassroots level on climate action by promoting their work and connecting similar groups together.
We partner with all these organisations to work with them longer-term and provide continued support. This helps them work towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals and address climate change challenges facing our planet and its people.
