The Global Ecovillage Network (ecovillage.org) builds bridges between policy-makers, governments, NGOs, academics, entrepreneurs, activists, communities and ecologically-minded individuals across the globe in order to develop strategies for a global transition to resilient communities and cultures.
Giving Tuesday began in the United States in 2012, as a way to give back after the well known shopping days of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Last year celebrities including Sir Richard Branson, Cara Delevingne and Dua Lipa used the campaign to support causes close to their hearts, alongside household name brands such as PayPal, RBS and ASOS, with leading charities like Marie Curie and the Dogs Trust getting involved on the day.
#GivingTuesday was the top trending item on UK Twitter, with the hashtag reaching people more than 600 million times. In the UK, more than £7.8 million was raised in online donations alone on the day itself.
Gabriel Siqueira, Communications and IT Director of GEN said: “Giving Tuesday is the perfect occasion for us to demonstrate the power of communities. We invite our partners, donors, volunteers, staff and board members to share theirs giving stories on social media, and to show their love and commitment to the ecovillage movement.”
Gráinne Mathews, Giving Tuesday UK Campaign Lead, adds: “Giving Tuesday is a chance for us all, no matter where we live or what we do, to help out a cause close to our hearts.”
