GreenFridays4Future is a not-for-profit organisation that aims to provide a guide and resource for people that wish to embark on living a more green lifestyle.
GreenFridays4Future is inspired by the lifetime of work carried out by inspirational individuals such as Greta Thunberg, Sir David Attenborough, Ernestine Leikeki, Yvonne Aki-Sawyerr OBE and countless other individuals who have played a huge role in striving for a greener and cleaner world.
We hope to highlight key areas that require addressing in the world and show where you can make a difference, small or big, to this environmental effort.
GreenFridays4Future has been founded by two Irish people who, through experience, have noted what is going on in the world and want to try and make the world we live in a cleaner and greener place by providing a resource for individuals to discover how they can lead a more sustainable life.
Christina & Charlie have both lived abroad, seeing how different cultures and countries deal with waste, single plastic usage and ways of living that vary in how sustainable they are.
Christina’s interest in sustainability originated from one of her children’s school projects. She got involved with some local NGO’s initiatives in Connecticut where she was living. Surfriders Ct was a great organisation she got inspired by. They organise beach clean ups all over Connecticut helping to clean up some of the waste in the ocean and to raise public awareness about the plastic and waste issue in the seas.
Back in Ireland, just as the global pandemic lockdown really changed people’s lives, Christina attended an intensive course with Cambridge University looking at Business Sustainability Management. She has since tried to articulate how anybody can take the small steps to be more sustainable. Not an easy task but that one can be helped with simple suggestions and simple language.
GreenFridays4Future is an endeavour to bring like-minded people into the fold of sustainability and a forum to share ideas.
Christina is also on the Global Advisory Council for VentureWave Capital, who are working with Irish investors and members of the Diaspora seeking to back scalable companies that also deliver a significant benefit to Ireland. VentureWave promotes the principles of impact investing.
Charlie first started becoming conscious of the human environmental impact while in college. He thought he could rid the world of palm oil by stopping his friends from buying foods containing it while on a study break. Ambitious to say the least.
Since then Charlie worked in New York in 501(c)3 organisation Earth's Call while concurrently working with the CityKids Foundation.
Charlie, like many who will read this, is actively and slowly making the switch to more sustainable life choices - we're all on this learning curve together.
