Greenrock is a Registered Charity, #704.

We focus on environmental education and wider sustainability issues.

We seek to generate debate and to influence people to change their behaviour.We strive to be catalysts: Success for us is when we can Change the Mindset so that sustainable use of resources is included in decision-making for individuals, government or businesses. 

Mission Statement

To engage the community to share solutions for a sustainable Bermuda. 

Vision

To promote education and awareness of our choices and to encourage respect for the environment in people of all ages.

We develop and promote environmental projects for the benefit of the public.

We stimulate public awareness of and understanding of such projects

We act as a facilitator of research, a communicator and a repository for information, ideas and knowledge relating to sustainable development. 

What do we do?

Where we see an unmet need we establish projects to meet that need. For example our Hydration Station project is installing bottle-filling stations in Hamilton to encourage people to carry and use their own water bottles. We run a number of regular events each year, such as Earth Hour, to keep the public motivated, informed and interested in sustainability. We also chair the Green Building Forum and the Greenrock Education Council to facilitate idea and resource-sharing.

How is Greenrock Supported?

Greenrock is an exceptionally lean charity with the vast majority of our work carried out by volunteers supported by a single full-time employee - our Executive Administrator. While we do seek funding specifically for our events, projects and forums, our ‘Changing the Mindset’ fund is a general account that is used to help develop various projects and events.  It also covers the expenses of our Administrator and other incidentals as we develop and maintain our website, monitor and draft responses to Government policies and regulations, work with community decision makers, including other environmental NGOs. This is entirely funded through donations from individuals and companies in Bermuda.

Please consider making a donation to support our work.

Greenrock needs your help!

As a charity we depend on donations and grants to fund our day-to-day operations and programmes. We also depend on an active membership to drive initiatives and develop new programmes and campaigns.

We couldn't do what we do without this support. We need you.

How can you help?

Become a Corporate Supporter

Corporate Supporters provide key funds for maintaining our day-to-day operations and funding our Changing the Mindset campaign. These funds allow us to focus programme specific funding on our programmes - like environmental education - rather than administrative aspects that these programmes require.

Click here for more information on Corporate Supporters and how to become one!

Fund a Programme

Our Eco-Schools Programme has continued to expand into 20 schools now, and we want every school in Bermuda to be an Eco-School. However, we can't do this without making sure the programmes are sustainably funded.

In addition to this programme we also have the Young Reporters for the Environment Programme, and we're looking to introduce additional programmes in the future.
