Ed Burtynsky's photographs show us the world transformed by human industry, and the grim future we're creating.
Worldchanging shows us a different world - the future we could create. A bright green future, a sustainable, prosperous, dynamic future for all. On a planet full of problems, Worldchanging calls attention to solutions, illuminating tools, models and ideas for building that future.
We have a choice to make. We can build a future of green products and industry, renewable energy and leapfrogging technologies, clean water and fresh air, livable cities and healthy children. Or we can have the kind of world Ed Burtynsky shows us.
How to turn $1 into $3 and help create a bright green future:
If you want the future Ed Burtynsky's showing, all you have to do is nothing.
If you want a bright green future, Worldchanging needs your help.
Together, we can start a worldwide conversation about the future. To start that conversation, we need to raise $150,000, and we've found an exciting way to make this possible. Every dollar you contribute will turn into THREE dollars that we receive. That's because two of our biggest supporters, Ed Burtynsky and the Sapling Foundation have both offered to match every reader contribution dollar for dollar, up to $50,000 apiece, until Earth Day, April 22, 2006.
If we can raise $50,000 from you, our readers, we'll reach our goal.
And to show how much your support means to us, all supporters making gifts over $500 will be acknowledged in a special section in our upcoming book, and receive a copy of the book signed by the Worldchanging team.
Donations may also be mailed to Worldchanging at 3707 South Edmunds Street, Suite 180, Seattle, WA 98118
Edward Burtynsky's Wish: Pass it On!
When internationally-acclaimed photographer Edward Burtynsky won the 2005 TED Prize, he made a wish. That wish was to encourage a worldwide conversation about the planet, its problems and their possible solutions. Ed chose Worldchanging.com as the way to kick-start that conversation.
Worldchanging brings you the best tools, models and ideas for building a bright green future.
