History of the organization
StopWatch was not created in Conference Room A or B or C or in a cold, steel, corporate building as a publicity stunt; nor was it created by a middle-aged couple full of regrets, looking to give back to the world in an enthusiastic attempt to make something of their ambition. It was conceived in the classrooms and bedrooms and backyards of multiple teenagers looking to achieve what is needed, but conveniently ignored. A new organization driven entirely by the youth that has everything it takes to be the catalyst that this world needs to spur it into action, to turn them from unaware to socially conscious citizens, to bring change.
Who is benefitting from this organization?
To that end, we promise to take affirmative action against any environmental injustice that may occur; we promise to work towards a brighter future; and we promise to work tirelessly.
