Fields of Action

Fields of actions at TRVST are 15 themes where we believe we can make a difference by inspiring action and helping to tell the stories of people who’ve created initiatives and projects to create positive change.

Planet

We only have one home. Climate change threatens our way of life as we face rising sea levels, mass migration and famine as a result of a warming planet. Plant and animal species are becoming extinct at a faster rate than ever before as human activity encroaches on natural habitats.

Our oceans are awash with plastic pollution, and our modern life continues to draw unsustainably on our planet's finite resources.

Yet, we’re making progress. Governments are making moves and changemakers are creating innovative solutions. We believe we all have a role to play in protecting our planet, from the switch to renewable energy to protecting biodiversity. In planet, we inspire our shared responsibility to help protect our environment and the precious life on it for each other and future generations.

Plastic straws are almost always used only once before being disposed of. Further, they really are non-essential (we can drink soda without right?).
