Gerdi with Anne Bland on social entrepreneurship and saving the planet

When Anne Bland left politics she didn’t stop being passionate about social entrepreneurship and changing the world. She continued to use that passion for good.

In the last few years, her passion and experience culminated in ‘Future Proof Your Business’, an enterprise she started with her business partner and mutual friend, Sue Jackson. Recently they added another one, ‘Repurpose 360’.

Both of these enterprises are very much in alignment with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that Anne most resonates with: Gender Equality and Climate Action.

These goals also align with another role in Anne’s life; that of Climate Reality Leader and Mentor for The Climate Reality Project.

Anne and I talk about social entrepreneurship and how businesses and individuals can contribute to changing the world — not only for humanity but for Nature and the planet.
