Universal Risk is an unincorporated social enterprise voluntary organisation founded by Edward Hoare and funded from the founder’s resources.
What is our vision?
Our main vision is to help create a long-term and sustainable base for the benefit of future generations. We feel the concept of profit, people, planet is important and needs nurturing. We want to help younger generations so that they may be interested in and understand the impact of humanity on the planet.
We are a group of like-minded people, dedicated to the improvement of our world. We achieve our goals by running projects that speak to people and help them to understand how important is the concept of sustainable living and resource management. Our projects are based around the three goals of Learning Educating and Enabling. Universal Risk was founded by Edward Hoare in 2005.
We all take chances/risks. We take them every minute of every day – in some form or other. The consequences of the risks we take can be personal, domestic, local, regional, national, international, global, universal.
Hence the name – Universalrisk
why we are here &
who we are
“We stand for belonging to a society in which all resources (financial, human and natural) are generated and managed on a long term sustainable basis for the benefit of future generations”
