The Converging World

The Converging World The Converging World (TCW) aims to reduce poverty and inequality and promote sustainable use of the world's resources. Read more at www.theconvergingworld.org
The Converging World is a UK-based charity whose objectives are to tackle climate change whilst supporting the move towards a just and sustainable world. We use a unique business model that makes every donation work 3 times harder than normal to create an ever bigger impact. We use donations to invest in renewable energy projects in developing countries that both reduce CO2 emissions and contribute to sustainable development– ALL the profits from these investments provide long term funding for vital health, education and environmental projects around the world. Why is this approach so effective? Because we are a charity distribution of profits is not to shareholders but is reinvested into the business model to breed more turbines. Our first project is a wind farm in India and each turbine grows clean energy far into the future. Because of this breeder effect long term revenue streams are secured to fund local action and support at the grass roots. When it comes to climate change we can’t afford to wait for Governments to take the lead. The Converging World offers a way of redressing some of the economic injustices in the world and to help counter climate change. It is a not-for profit organisation whose only vested interest is in a sustainable planet. It’s the beginning of something huge: a chance to help change the world. And by supporting The Converging World you can help us begin. Charity Reg No: 1043572

Make green resolutions to reduce our CO2, and in the meantime absorb our CO2 by donating to plant trees today!

Tropical trees grow faster and remove more CO2 from the atmosphere than trees in the UK. By restoring our tropics, we absorb CO2 and help support sustainable livelihoods for local people.
