Atlantic Rainforest support and jewellery for conservation
Wednesday was another day in London, based in the office which we share with Elephant Family. First a sandwich lunch with a potential new corporate supporter, who is considering supporting our work in the Atlantic rainforests.
This was followed by a meeting with Albertino Abela, who was elected Chairman of the Trustees at our AGM last week. I reported on the current situation of the Trust, in particular the impact of the recession. Luckily, so far the impact is not significant; in fact all the indications are that the WLT is continuing to grow.
The next meeting was with Liberty, who are hosting Rising gems, an exhibition of new jewellery by young jewellers, which is being launched in the Jewellery hall of Liberty's next month. The Rising Gem collection was inspired by the World Land Trust's conservation projects and the sale of the jewellery will raise funds for them.
The last meeting of the day was with our PR consultant, to plan activities around the various events of our 20th Anniversary -- more details of these will be available on our website soon.
