“Our mission is to be a global behavior change catalyst; to work together to advance and implement approaches that empower people across the world to adopt truly sustainable lifestyles.”
GAP International’s vision is of a thriving planet with caring people and resilient societies.
All of our programmes incorporate three fundamental GAP values which come from the network’s 25 years of experience in effecting lasting change:
1. We are aspirational:
- We share a positive vision of a more sustainable world where devoted people live in just and inclusive societies respecting planetary limits.
- We don’t try to scare people with stories of doom and gloom.
2. We empower people:
- We believe people are fundamental to creating a more sustainable world, and we empower them to make changes to the way they live and work. We meet people where they are and help them to find their own motivation to change.
- We don’t judge and we don’t order around.
3. We are impactful:
- We design programmes that use the latest research insights to create measureable and lasting change.
- We don’t look for short term solutions or conduct research that isn’t action focused.
