The Why

Bringing the community together to change the world

The underlying motivation behind The Dandelion Foundation is about bringing the community of Guernsey together to help create a better place for us all to live.

Every islander already has the potential to offer our community something to help us all move forward in some way. The important thing is for the community and The Dandelion Foundation to release that potential.

The world is changing every day. Making a big difference at our community level no longer requires the resources that only government is capable of delivering.
The capability of small groups of people to make a real difference is already here and that provides us with a fantastic opportunity.

There has never been a better time for a community like Guernsey to unite to inspire bold action. Guernsey is both a town and a country. It is the perfect societal model to come together to try out new ideas for the benefit of the local population.

Small nations such as Guernsey hold the key to bringing the world a better future. Many of the toughest challenges in the world have already been solved. The challenge that humanity faces is not in the finding of solutions but in making those solutions happen on the ground.

Guernsey already has one of the best standards of living in the world. We believe that Guernsey can lead the way in radically improving quality of life not only for our own community but to serve as a north star for the rest of the world as well.


The What

Make Guernsey the best place to live on earth by 2020

The Dandelion Foundation has a single and clear mission; to make Guernsey the best place to live on earth by 2020.

This is not about a working to find a single island definition of what the best place to live on earth is. There isn’t one. This is about creating a lens for every islander to look through, to see the possibility for what they can achieve for their community in the years to come.

As a community, we have abundant resources. The desire is out there. The ideas are out there. The money is out there. The people and projects are out there.

The Dandelion Foundation is helping the community bring these resources together in new ways to unlock its true potential.

As part of this project we think about big seemingly impossible moonshot questions and inspire people to not only to answer them but make them happen.

Questions like:

How can we be the most positive country on the planet?

How can we be the first country in the world to have a life expectancy of 100?

How can we become the world’s first self actualised country

How can we get our cost of living down to zero sustainably?

How can we become the world’s first self organised country?

How can we become the highest impact nation on the planet?

How can we be the world’s first country that ends the need to work?

How can we be the first country that develops legislation in real time?

How can we be the most philanthropic country on the planet?

How can we leave no one behind?

The How

Get involved

There are 3 primary areas that we focus on. These 3 areas are about creating the environment for change to happen rather than making the change happen.

  1. Plant seeds: To bring problem solvers from around the world to Guernsey to inspire local people to solve local problems in innovative ways
  2. Fertile soil: To create a positive environment that inspires a culture of experimentation and risk taking in order to solve local problems in new
    and innovative ways
  3. Scaling up: To foster a new era of philanthropy and investment where community members give more of their time and resources to take on
    local problems in global context

As a community we need your contribution. Be it your time, money, ideas, inspiration, leadership, courage, support or even your lobbying.

We need you to stand up and be counted in some way to contribute positively to the community as a whole.

We need you to share with the community how you can help and also for you to tell the community how it can help you.

We need you to get involved. So please join us. Sign up to our mailing list below.
