Our Business Model
Slow Planet will always be free and open to everyone, but we still have to pay the bills. Our chief source of revenue will be advertising. We aim to work only with suppliers that embrace or reflect the Slow philosophy. If you feel we have failed in that, tell us why. Debate is the lifeblood of Slow Planet.
If Slow Planet goes into profit, we will use the surplus to fund Slow-inspired projects around the world. We will invite you, the citizens of Slow Planet, to help choose the recipients. In the long run, our aim is to establish an International Slow Fund that will support people everywhere who are changing the world by slowing it down a little.
Finally, we promise never to pass on the personal details of our citizens to a third party.
