Earthscope Isle of Man, a nature-positive start-up business, is to launch in Douglas this Thursday (November 9) with a free interactive workshop that has already sold out.

The enterprise is driven by a vision of placing nature at the core of decision-making throughout society.

Founded by local film-maker and environmentalist Sarah Mercer and lecturer Matthew Warren, Earthscope Isle of Man offers specialist training and education that empowers people to take action, mobilising initiatives to build thriving and sustainable businesses and communities.

The launch event – Nature is Everyone’s Business: Finding your Purpose in a Climate Emergency –  is aimed at those interested in finding out what actions they, their businesses and their communities can take to build a future in which people and planet flourish. A second workshop is planned in the coming weeks.  

As well as providing training and education, Earthscope Isle of Man will return a minimum of 50% of its future profits to a seed fund that will support local environmental initiatives, keeping money within the community to support the growth of a prosperous and sustainable society.
