THE DUKE OF EDINBURGH'S AWARD

Description

The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award is the world’s leading achievement award for young people.

We aim to create a world where young people can reach their full potential whatever their circumstances. Our ethos is to enable every young person of every background to do their DofE and succeed, regardless of any barriers. We provide a balanced programme of activities that develops the whole person – mind, body and soul – in an environment of social interaction and teamworking. Young people progress through three levels of DofE programmes to achieve a Bronze, Silver or Gold Award. Taking part builds confidence and develops self-esteem. It requires persistence, commitment and has a lasting impact on the attitudes and outlook of all young people who do their DofE. Our participants are aged between 14 and 24.

The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award is delivered under special licence by over 500 partners (Licenced Organisations). Our partners support over 10,000 DofE centres including youth clubs, voluntary organisations, schools, colleges, Young Offenders Institutions and businesses to run DofE programmes and accredit their young people.

LIVING EARTH FOUNDATION

Description

Living Earth Foundation is an international sustainable development NGO, established in 1987. Today, we are active in many countries around the world, working in diverse localities from Aberdeen to the Niger Delta, and from the urban slums of Kampala to the North Slope of Alaska. Our vision is of a Living Earth where people learn and act together to help sustain the systems and resources necessary for a fulfilled life. Our mission is to turn ideas into action: working with people to resolve their environmental concerns. We achieve this by: • developing people’s ideas, skills and self confidence, • forging partnerships among corporations, communities and governments to improve the quality of decision-making and develop lasting solutions, • sustaining positive change by developing and supporting local organisations, • building consensus among different groups and avoiding unnecessary confrontation. We are committed to the idea that solutions cannot be learned from a textbook, that they cannot be prescribed from the top down. We work in partnership with all sectors of society - civil, government and private - to build the capacity to enable communities to develop their own solutions to the environmental problems that they face. Over the last twenty years we have been committed to developing multi-sector partnerships, enabling solutions that could not have been achieved by one partner alone.
