The Untouched World™ Foundation exists to empower the next generation with leadership skills to build a sustainable future.
We deliver week long leadership programmes across New Zealand, engaging secondary and tertiary students in groundbreaking, experiential learning based on sustainability.
We passionately believe that educating young adults on key issues facing society, unlocking their unique leadership potential and inspiring them to become active change-makers, is how we can make the most positive impact on our world.
Since its inception alongside the Untouched World™ clothing brand in 2000 we have graduated over 1500 students and developed key domestic and international partnerships, including Department Of Conservation, Rata Foundation, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization’s Global Action Programme (GAP) and the Mahatma Gandhi Institute of Education for Peace and Sustainable Development (MGIEP).
We also have multiple local partner organisations in the regions where we operate from the private, public and NGO sectors (see programmes).
