About us

WeFuture Global is a non-profit international organization that develops a transparent, independent and science-based network dedicated to stimulate natural world conservation.

 
1

Mission

To educate, promote and connect the private, public and civil sectors by sharing conservation knowledge and expertise in order to stimulate global action on natural world conservation.

2

Vision

A self-sustaining and trustworthy international network of dedicated world conservationists that strengthen the balance between ecological, economic and social interests.

Our Philosophy is

“Everything is Connected”

When it comes to solving global complex problems, there is no single simple solution. In fact, these problems can be quite daunting and disheartening when seen collectively. But by breaking down these complex problems into smaller sustainability issues, we not only empower individuals with the guidance they need to make a change, but inspire the hope that we can solve these problems, together.

 

When approaching environmental, social, and economic sustainability issues; WeFuture Global adopts a holistic approach by:

Educating our network on the connections between local and global issues, ecosystems, and the impact that individuals can make on the ‘bigger picture’.
leaf@2x
Promoting our partner companies and organizations by framing them as pieces of a puzzle, or keystone species in an ecosystem.
leaf@2x
Connecting like minded individuals with sustainability partners, or empowering world conservationists with a global platform for their voices to be heard.
In doing so, we empower our network with a variety of opportunities to be more sustainable and inspire them with the reminder that they are not alone. You can’t do everything, but you can do something - and together we can build a better future. Our Services

“WeFuture Global teaches the trainees to become better at complex problem solving by diving into world problems while working together in groups.”

Core Team

Chanté Ceronio

Branding & Marketing


South Africa

“One moment can change a day, one day can change a life and one life can change the world.” – Buddha

I'm an optimist, an empath, a perspective-seeker. I'm hard-working, passionate, and driven. I care, I connect, I create. I'm a collection of my experiences, shaped by the world and the people in it. And in return, I use the knowledge gleaned from these experiences to make a positive impact.

"You cannot suffer the past or future because they do not exist. What you are suffering is your memory and your imagination." - Sadhguru

I believe that we are all connected in the universe, through frequencies and vibrations that accept anyone and everyone who is willing to listen to nature and shake off the chaos and distractions of the material world. Along with that belief, it is also the people that I choose to surround myself with, and those that I choose to embed deep into my soul, that makes me me.

"Only what we have wrought into our character during life can we take with us." - Alexander von Humboldt

I seek the bigger picture and strive for balance of science and sensation, art and nature, man and earth.

“The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall." - Nelson Mandela

I chase dreams instead of money. I seek development instead of comfort. I see exercise instead of failures. I choose optimism instead of pessimism. I advocate the voiceless instead of the noisy.

"What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make" - Jane Goodall

I love to connect with different people and enjoy having a diversity in people around me. Every person has their story that is worth listening to. I believe that every spark of kindness can impact the world in a better direction.

Nadia Zuidema

Education Researcher


Netherlands

"Teaching children to be kinder to animals today, is our only hope for a kinder world tomorrow" - Victoria Knott

I truly believe in the softness of the world and the goodness of other people. I often philosophize about the possibilities this world has to offer. I believe that if we inspire people to see the good in things and if we challenge them to think outside the box they are raised in, we have the power to create a better world.
Supervisory Board

Bente van Leeuwen

Chairwoman


Netherlands

"Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished." - Lao Tzu

I’m a thinker, a philosopher. I’m a writer and a reader. Yet, I think too much, I write too little, and read too slowly. So maybe none of that defines me. Maybe nothing defines me. Maybe I don’t believe in definitions. And maybe, that’s what makes me me.

Joeri Schippers

Member


Netherlands

"An optimist is a bad informed pessimist" - Theo Maassen

I believe in the good nature of every being. The environment, the welfare of animals and sustainability are very important to me. I can really enjoy nature, it’s a place where I can think, it gives me energy, happiness and strength. I am an honest person who stays close to who I am, who likes to help others and I do things my own way. Enjoying life but with as little pollution as possible.

Timme Miedema

Vice-chairman


Netherlands

"The greatest threat to our planet is the belief that someone else will save it" - Robert Swan

I believe that every human being is a work in progress, and I therefore strive to absorb as much information possible. 'A well-informed mind is the best security against the contagion of folly and vice'
Growth Board

Annabella Rijksen

Creative Innovator


Netherlands

"Dare to dream, Do because you can"

I think differently. I think a creative mind can solve problems and I see opportunities without looking for them. I connect problems, people, nature and I those connections are creating value for me and the environment. My social connections are really important for me and if I am going for something I want to be the best or getting the best out of something. I will always look for the bigger goal and believe in possibilies, because you can create your own future if you just do.

Arjen Visser

"One has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws." - Martin Luther King, Jr.

My philosophy is that everything is connected in the universe and thus that all earthlings are equal. That's why I'm focusing on the protection of all earthlings. In this mission I seek justice, to gain justice we need peace, to gain peace we need balance, to gain balance we need equality, to gain equality we need education, nonviolent resistance and smart solutions to drive out the unjust, and that's what I focus on.
