As the eyes of the world are on @cop26uk, @afterthepandemic are hosting a cultural fringe event in Glasgow, so that everyone can take part in the climate conversation and drive positive global change at a local level. @oneplanet.life have arranged a panel discussion with some of the world’s leading experts and scientists, including Professor Sir David King, Professor Kevin Anderson and Dr Alice Hill, to discuss the climate crisis and the urgent need to act now.

The panel discussion will take place on the 8th November, less than a mile from the official @cop26uk venue.

The Build Better Now exhibition demonstrates an aspirational yet achievable vision for the future – a built environment that we can relate to, and a future where we are part of the solution.

As the developers, investor representatives and master planners of @singita_ Kwitonda Lodge, Rwanda, we were delighted that it has been included in the selection of 17 sustainable projects from around the world, to be featured in @buildbetter_now at @cop26uk, over the duration of the conference.

Explore the virtual exhibition by following the link in our bio.

The unprecedented and extreme climate events in the past few months signal that we have entered a new phase in climate change with collapse of earth systems, meaning that reducing carbon emissions is no longer enough…

Whatever happens at #COP26 we need to #AdaptNow. 

Please share this video with others, to help inspire a movement of change. Together we can tackle the climate crisis head-on. 🌍

The built environment has a central role to play in supporting the world’s transition to a net zero carbon economy. Globally, buildings consume over a third of energy produced and are responsible for 38% of carbon emissions. Build Better Now is a virtual exhibition and series of events highlighting the most sustainable building projects from around the world, raising awareness and offering practical solutions for tackling the climate crisis.
 
As the developers, investor representatives and master planners of @singita_ Kwitonda Lodge, Rwanda, we were pleased that it has been included in the selection of 17 sustainable projects from around the world, to be featured in @buildbetter_now at @cop26uk over the next two weeks.

Our partnership with the Rwanda Development Board was created to help attract sustainable nature-based tourism investment into Rwanda, so we’re therefore delighted that this project has been honoured.

Today, on #WorldGorillaDay, we’re celebrating the positive impact that @singita_ Kwitonda Lodge, is having on securing the future recovery of the endangered mountain gorilla. 

Over time, habitat encroachment as a result of the growing human population and political instability, has pushed this species to a precarious state – with just over 1,000 surviving in at-risk natural habitats.

Singita Kwitonda Lodge has been part of a national vision driven by the Rwanda Development Board to attract sustainable tourism investment to reverse this trend. Developed by Milton Group at the invite of the President of Rwanda, this 178 acre site continues to be reforested as part of an initiative to expand the habitat for the gorilla populations in the National Park.

@ngarra_places is launching an innovative conservation estate in Australia, located on Flinders Island in the crystal-clear waters of the Bass Strait. 

As part of Vol. 3 of The Difference, Tom Palmer shares the vision for the project, and how the pandemic is shaping a new market for real estate with purpose, and attracting a new wave of forward-thinking environmental custodians.

We are delighted to work closely with @tusk_org on matters of African conservation and thought leadership. Tusk's track record of marking a difference motivated us to invite Charlie Mayhew to share his story in Volume 3 of The Difference.

Fine art photographer, David Yarrow, created these majestic sculptures alongside some key contributors, to be featured on the Tusk Lion Trail this month. @davidyarrow partnered with the Kevin Richardson Foundation to create one of two lions. The second sculpture was sponsored by Genesis Imaging, who delicately wrapped both pieces with David Yarrow’s iconic lion photographs. Artist, Eliot Haigh, painted the wonderfully detailed faces on the lions.

You can catch a glimpse of these life-sized lions, which are now on display as part of the Tusk Lion Trail, organised by @africanccf and @tusk_org. The sculpture made in partnership with the Kevin Richardson Foundation will be on display in St. James’s square, Edinburgh, and the Genesis Imaging sponsored lion sculpture will be on display in The Royal Exchange, London.

Today on World Oceans Day, we are looking back on our conversation with Dr. Andrea Marshall, the first person in the world to complete a PhD on manta rays, and the founder of the @marinemegafauna Foundation. 

Andrea spearheads the conservation of manta rays both in Mozambique and around the world. For our first issue of The Difference, we were lucky enough to interview Dr Andrea Marshall about her efforts to protect these threatened rays.

The main objective of #WorldBeeDay is to raise awareness of the importance of bees and beekeeping – so today we are exploring the fundamental importance of bees, over on our blog. 

Not only are they a central part of the natural world, with a significant proportion of the earth’s food production depending upon them, but they are also playing an increasingly important role as part of both wildlife conservation and social uplift.

A key part of our mission is to align with current and future thought leaders, to make a difference. @thespaceperspective offers an alternative approach through which we can achieve this shared purpose, by providing its travellers with the ability to view the planet through a completely new perspective.

Over recent years the climate crisis narrative has taken a worryingly debasing turn, placing too much emphasis on the individual as an autonomous agent of change.

Dr Emma Williams, of OnePlanet, tells us why she was relieved to see this year’s Earth Day theme being centred around togetherness.
