Sustainability presents several challenges to mankind that offer opportunities for growth, pushing us to leap forward with technological innovation, to band together to preserve our planet’s unique ecosystems, to step above the dogmas ingrained in our society and ask ourselves ‘what changes is it time we made?’ To tackle these challenges, the Tangency Foundation focuses on three core fronts: education, innovation, and action. All three of these pillars begin with the same foundation, a fascination for exploration that breeds an appreciation for all that the world has offered us, and all we should offer in return. The Tangency flag serves as a call to arms against the mainstream and refuse to participate in the dogmatic practices which enable certain corporate infrastructures to bypass regulation and social conviction. For years activists have worked harder and harder to promote change, but now it’s time we worked smarter.

A future we deserve to belong to

Before we ask for a future we deserve, let us work to deserve a greater future.

Saving our planet, lifting people out of poverty, advancing economic growth... these are one and the same fight. We must connect the dots between climate change, water scarcity, energy shortages, global health, food security and women’s empowerment. Solutions to one problem must be solutions for all.
— Bang Ki-moon, Secretary General of the United Nations

Botanic Gardens Conservation International hosted a talk by Professor Wangari Maathai, the women's rights campaigner, founder of the Green Belt Movement and Nobel Peace Prize winner - the first African woman to have been awarded this accolade. As someone who embodies the activist spirit that The Tangency Foundation admires, she has served as a role-model to thousands of activists both at-hoe and abroad. Sharing a most beautiful fable, she has inspired and motivated the audience at the Royal Geographical Society (a feat on its own!).
