iStart2 Vision, Mission & Values


Vision
 
A “Sustainability-Through- Arts” global movement
in which communities will participate
in re-imagining and implementing solutions
towards ensuring sustainable footprints
for our children.


Mission:
To provide a platform where people can take hands across boundaries and connect to create and re-imagine practical solutions for a sustainable future. 
 
Using the arts to communicate in a fun and positive way that talks to the head
and hearts of diverse communities and inspire them to use their hands in
saving water, energy and waste 
 
Building bridges and form partnerships with world leaders, their foundations
and the networks supporting them 
 
People with “all abilities”, disadvantaged communities and Indigenous Peoples
of the world will form the core of the iStart2 movement interconnected with
Artists, Business, Government, The Media, Religious Communities, Schools, Universities, Colleges, Elderly Folk (and Old Age Homes)
