The Movements Trust supports social movements working towards sustainable development, which we define as:
"development which meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs".
social, economic and environmental justice.
This definition of sustainable development means we work with movements that are active across multiple sectors to effect change.
'A social movement'
A loosely organised but sustained campaign in support of a social goal.
Our vision is a sustainable planet
We recognise that to achieve a sustainable planet we need systemic change, addressing the inequalities and extractive tendencies in our current economic and political system.
We can only build a just and sustainable society though flourishing and empowered communities, which is why The Movements Trust’s purpose is to support and amplify social movements striving for a just society.
