Planning for the future is difficult in this current climate, we just don’t know when the world (as we knew it) will open up again.
Our planet is in crisis. Many environmentalists were calling for changes to how we live before COVID. Climate change is a major problem.
The pandemic has put a halt to many eco friendly projects, but there has also been a huge reduction on the amount fossil fuel burned as a result of working at home. There are reports of the immediate impact including better air and water quality.
Recent government changes also give hope of renewed focus on Climate Change e.g COP26.
We all have a part to play in looking after the environment. It may feel that one person/community/country cannot make the huge difference needed – we can’t believe that. We’re looking for ways to change what we do on a day-to-day basis. We are choosing to group together (albeit a small group initially) to do what we can in our villages.
It may be doing something as simple as collecting litter, showing respect to our countryside and hopefully creating more of an appreciation for nature. This appreciation leads to understanding the diversity in nature and wildlife and how important it is to protect it.
Yes we are dreaming big and are not afraid to start small. We just want to start.
Please get in touch whether it’s to share ideas of community projects we could do, asking how you could be more green, what it means to be carbon neutral or contemplating zero waste, or even if you’re unsure about what you can put in your green bin.
No question or thought too big or too small we are interested in all our community and hope you’ll join us.
Thank you for reading.
