SPSC Ambassador

(We support Sustainable Development Goals)

uni

The initiative’s purpose is to support acceleration of the world’s transition to sustainability.

There is no time and no financial commitment, confirmation or contribution expected from any ambassador. So it is absolutely free. It is not a money making membership scheme.

It is operated by SPSC Ambassadors, and for SPSC Ambassadors.
A perfect organisation does not need to improve. We will never consider ourselves perfect, as we wish to improve today, tomorrow as well as after 10 years.
Please consider this as your initiative, so feel free to suggest, advice as well as criticise. Your valuable feedback us shape the future of SPSC Ambassador initiative.

We have a simple 3 step approach:

  1. Engage– by issuing a verifiable SPSC Ambassadorship certificate
  2. Motivate / Guide / Appreciate
  3. Recognise – by issuing a verifiable badge, medal, cup, trophy, shield, crown, etc.

We should be servant leaders. Our leaders should aim at serving their team members. A servant leader shares power, puts the needs of the employees first and helps people develop and perform as highly as possible. Instead of the people working to serve the leader, the leader exists to serve the people.

SPSC ambassadors make a pro-bono community of personnel. They either support or wish to support sustainability. Once you apply, the decision to grant you ambassadorship is taken by any 3 SPSC ambassadors. We decide Individual SPSC Ambassador level based on your education, commitment, knowledge and experience.

Yes…. Our definition of child is anyone who has not completed 16 years of age. Parent need to apply on behalf of the child. The email id, in our record, will be of parent. For our workshops & webinars, parent/s will supervise children’s participation. We have two categories:

  1. Cub – Till the child completes year 10.
  2. Star – 10+ till the child comples year 16.

We are bit choosy on selecting an organisational SPSC ambassador. It is easy for any registered charity, NGO, educational institute, hospital, care home, library, community centre, etc. It is relatively longer for businesses, as we review your contribute to sustainability i.e. society and environement.

This is a genuine initiative for genuine participants, so not a money making scheme. For 2021 and 2022, there are no subscription fees. Whilst we hope to keep this free forever; however this should not be interpreted as our commitment. We hope that you understand that it is very difficult to predict and commit to future scenarios that are uncertain, complex, dynamic and volatile.

SPSC Ambassadors practice sustainability in their own personal & professional lives while buying/using/disposing products and services. So basically they are active supporter of sustainability in their own life, and passive supporter of sustainability to us.
