REPRESENTATION & BELONGING
Inspire & train BAME community and nature connection leaders to create a ripple effect of impact to their family and communities.
- Focus our energies to help develop better self-aware, socially and ecologically aware men,
nurturing a better functioning way of being.
" … with only around 1% of summer mountain leaders and rock-climbing instructors in the UK from ethnic minorities."
We are building on our learnings since 2017 intending to create a space in nature which is accessible, diverse and aware of the need for innovation to respond to the constant change of the world.
A space where nature and technology can go hand in hand to support each other.
Exploring questions like:
In the future, how do we engage those that are digital natives and excluded?
How can enterprising activities help with sustainability and provide opportunities of employment?
Where did this come from?
In 2017, due to 3 of our founder’s male friends died by suicide in the same year and he wanted to do something about it.
We started with the question: what does a safe space look and feel like for men so we can take off the armour or masks that men wear in society?
A space that men can feel safe to share authentically.
A space of non-judgement.
A space of acceptance no matter what your skin colour is, where they were born or economic backgrounds.
A space of creativity where we share evidenced based methodologies.
A space to help men raise their level of self-awareness.
A space of learning and experimentation to create a framework of a safe space where men can be vulnerable, authentic and feel belonging in a community.
We’ve been consistent with our support and regularly oversubscribed.
Through our continuous learning mindset & creativity we feel like we are achieving our mission
So far, we’ve engaged over 2500 men in activities, and over 6000 people in conversations of masculinity, men’s mental health and created a variety of different projects.We’ve utilised tools and techniques from Positive Psychology, Acceptance Commitment Therapy & developed ‘ men’s safe space conversations’ methodology that guarantees to get men who are strangers to be open and vulnerable within the 3 hours session, and this is what we’re building on.
If this aligns with you, join and support
our new vision towards a fairer sustainable future.
