issue seven: a year on from COP

Since COP26 last year a lot has changed! We may not seen much positive development happening on a government level, but we don’t have as much red tape on the ground.


We can make small community changes! Life choice which can add up to make a difference. We can be activists in how we live our lives and the spaces we carve out to make change and to save our planet a little damage.


What do you do? What have you experience? Is your community making the changes that matter? What do you want to see happening a year on from COP26?

issue eight - TBA
