#WorldClimateChangeDay With increased frequency of extreme weather, habitats are changing at an unprecedented rate. The species which have historically occupied these habitats are being forced to adapt at a speed never seen before in human history.Humans rely on these intricate foodwebs because we form part of the ecosystem. When species go extinct it will ultimately affect us.As part of the 'Business Lunch and Learn' program, we offer climate change workshops. Is your organisation looking at embarking on a sustainable journey? Get in touch! This October we'll host the 4th Gibraltar Sustainable Awards in collaboration with Gibraltar Federation of Small Businesses - looking forward to your submissions! We'd love to showcase your development to inspire others! #gibraltarsustainableawards #climatechange #NoPlanetB #act #ActionChangesThings ... See MoreSee Less

Inspired by The Duke of Edinburgh's International Award Gibraltar, yesterday we launched our new programme ๐Ÿ™ŒIt was an absolute honor to present the first batch to last year's #bronzedofe participants for completing their service with us. Not only did they log their required hours, they went over and beyond the call of duty ๐Ÿ‘ We are delighted that they continue their #silverdofe journey with us ๐Ÿ’™ With 11 levels (and growing) to achieve, we are in no doubt that this capable group of teenagers will acquire them all and more! A credit to Gibraltar, The Nautilus Project, The Duke of Edinburgh's International Award, their parents and teachers! We wish you the very best of luck as you embark on your GCSE's - we believe in you all!

Circular Fashion - a sustainable forward! #slowfashion With World Book Day fast approaching, and as parents ourselves, we are fully aware of the yearly expenses involved acquiring a themed fancy dress costume to celebrate the day. It's only worn a few hours after all! We are initiating an upcyling environment themed programme whereby you can borrow a preloved costume for the day helping avoid the costs and the inevitable 'used once only' cycle. They do grow out of them...and fast! Our intention is to circulate these costumes throughout our community, giving them the longest life cycle possible, avoiding unnecessary waste and landfill. Simply get in touch with us if you'd like to donate preloved fancy dress costumes, keeping in line with the theme and the books to go with of course! We will endeavor to source the relevant books, preloved too!
