Rescue Earth System

Volunteerism

Volunteerism is key to us achieving our shared ambition of a fairer and more prosperous world with equality of opportunity for all and saving Earth from ecosystem collapse.

A Culture of Volunteerism

Volunteer to Rescue Earth from Ecosystem Collapse

It is time to change the narrative on volunteering — to celebrate existing activity whilst finding new ways to engage with anyone who wants to participate. Opportunities abound for the founding of new innovative projects that address urgent problems. Their needs to be a paradigm shift in our attitudes towards community and the commons.

Volunteering is a choice. A choice to give time or energy, a choice undertaken of one’s own free will and a choice not motivated for financial gain or for a wage or salary. Volunteering offers vital help to people in need, worthwhile causes, and the community, but the benefits can be even greater for you, the volunteer.

Towards a Culture of Volunteerism

Volunteering is a choice to give time of one’s own free will, and not for financial gain or for a wage or salary. Volunteering offers vital help to people in need, worthwhile causes, and the community. Volunteers are motivated by the possibility that their collective actions will create a better world.

Volunteerism is key to us achieving our shared ambition of a fairer and more prosperous world with equality of opportunity for all — a world where everyone has the chance to participate and make a difference. It is key to saving Earth from ecosystem collapse.

The enormity of the problems we face throughout the world are so huge that solutions need to be adopted by the masses at an unprecedented scale. The Rescue Earth System is a global “call to action” for everyone to join the volunteer corps and to Rescue Earth — for the planet and people.

To achieve this, we need to create a society where volunteering is the norm — where opportunity and expectation are not limited by upbringing or social circumstances, and where we all celebrate and honour the contributions we can make no matter how big or small they are.

“Volunteering is the ultimate exercise in democracy … when you volunteer you vote every day about the kind of community you want to live in”
Marjorie Moore

Volunteering brings enormous benefits and enjoyment, not only to beneficiaries, but to communities, and to volunteers themselves. We know that — among other things — volunteering increases social and civil participation, empowers communities, and reduces loneliness and isolation.

Volunteerism can also improve mental and physical health, support the development of job and life skills, and foster a greater sense of belonging. The Courses and practical experience offered by the Rescue Earth System are geared to support the development of job and life skills, engender a greater sense of belonging and improve health through knowledge and action.

Being a volunteer in the Rescue Earth System is an experiential journey of connectedness that will enliven the most lifeless of souls with a spirit of adventure, the wisdom of knowing and the appreciation of friendship and community! It is a self-paced process of profound change that connects one to Earth and community through food, water, soil, ecology, laughter, hope, scent, fire, energy, fear, death, life, sound, syntropy … immersion is the only way to truly experience and appreciate the circle of life on Earth, and our place in it!

Volunteerism Initiatives

Developing a culture of volunteerism is a core objective of the Rescue Earth System. It is not the contribution of any one individual, but the collective efforts of the whole, that will define our success in saving Earth from Ecosystem Collapse.

Volunteer to Rescue Earth

We must rise and face the environmental challenges of our time by reversing the economic, physical and social decline of places. This can be achieved by the practice of regenerative restoration of degraded, damaged, or destroyed ecosystems and habitats in the environment by active human intervention and action.
