Uncover your undercover activist


Our mission 


We see a world in which business mobilises their assets and capital, and embraces the collective intelligence of their workforce to take action on climate change, inclusion and justice. 

This means more successful projects on environmental, social and governance issues within organisations, initiated by young professionals and positive activist mindsets. 

Through workshops, audio and visual storytelling, campaigning materials and a handbook, we aim to coach and embolden a workforce of young leaders who are constructive, optimistic and confident and use their place of work as a space for change.
