Hi! I am Dany. I am a 47 woman and I am very concerned about environmental issues and climate change.
I am a sailor and I developped a particular connection with oceans. I had the chance to sail on many seas and oceans over the past 20 years.
I had also the chance to hike in some spectacular areas around the globe. From years to years, my own impacts on climate change and the ones I noticed from others became more and more unacceptable to me.
From what I have seen, from what I have read and learned, I have no doubt that not only Earth is in danger but many living species are.
It makes me feel so sad and alone! I am upset because I have identified that it becomes urgent to act. I cannot stand to do nothing and to let a worst world to my daughter.
I have first reduced my car mileage. I stopped eating meat. I started to collect cigarette butts everywhere I was walking. I reduced the quantity of things I was buying. I try to make my part. I am afraid it is not enough and that things are too slow to make it happen. Frustration and fear arose!
After many trials with different NGOs I felt discouraged and I had a very bad feeling of helplessness . One-off actions had produced some results but not sustainable ones.
Hi, Amy, what are you doing today?
I am collecting cigarette butts. I started 2 hours ago and I have already found 245 of them.
Amy, aren't you fed up with those one shot actions ?
I know what you mean! But haven't you heard of ArmMe?
ArmMe? What's that?
ArmMe is an innovative organization that provides a permanent process to help individuals like us to deeply change human behaviors regarding environmental and social issues.
Another NGO that asks for subscription?
No! The only thing you need to join is to buy a connected armband that support an eco-friendly embroideries representing the cause you want to support.
And so what? What difference does it make?
It makes a big difference. I can turn every moment spent outside into a positive demonstration of support to my cause.
I see your armband. it's pretty. How is it connected.
Each Armband has a unique number that allows you to create an account on the ArmMe's App. Then, it is very easy to connect to thousands of people.
I see, ArmMe is a new social network?
No. Sure you can meet thousands of people, share results about your actions, read information about major NGOs supporting the same cause you do...
I see, ArmMe is more a support to increase your own impact?
But the main thing is that it helps you organize your own actions, it provides you insights you can share with people you meet in the street...
I am very impressed on the way you are talking about that experience!
Yes, you are right. It shows that everybody can act, that as small as everyday actions could be, they count and have to be registered and valued.
I think I am conviced. I should join ArmMe.
Yes, I am very enthousiastic. ArmMe helped me to communicate with others, to make many people change their behaviors regarding the actions I did.
This is precisely what I was looking for, a solution to accelerate behaviors changes.
Sure you have to. It will give you a unique opportunity to show others how to implement easy sustainable impactful actions that gather people.
