Club 15

The mission of Club 15 is to inspire and empower kids to mend our planet.  Every 15 minutes an elephant is killed for its tusks.  It’s time to change this.

What is Club 15?

If kids are given the tools and the opportunity to learn, then our generation can become part of the solution. Club 15 is an online community where we can learn how to take action to help solve global sustainability issues around the world.

Club 15 is the extension and interpretation of Project 15 from Microsoft.

Be a hero. Join Club 15.

The backstory

Project 15 from Microsoft

When she learned that the planet loses an elephant every 15 minutes, Microsoft IoT solutions architect Sarah Maston co-founded Project 15 with Daisuke Nakahara to help save them.

The goal of Project 15 is to reduce costs and complexity and rapidly decrease time to deployment for organizations and scientific teams working on solutions to protect and preserve our natural world.

The backstory

Kate meets Sarah

Kate learned about Project 15 from Microsoft on a televised fundraiser called Endangered Rangers. She reached out to Sarah with her idea:

Create a club to share knowledge and create a spark of curiosity and awareness. A club where all are welcome. A club to inspire kids to take action.

When I first met Kate, she made three very important points in her pitch:

  • It will fall on her generation to fix the Earth.
  • If you wait until I’m older, there will be nothing left to save.
  • Given the opportunity, my generation will be part of the solution.

She has a point.
