Cringey video, but not bad to bring the whole application together in such a short amount of time having heard about it yesterday. Also good for making myself get over my discomfort at speaking to a camera, which I definitely need to do in readiness for the trip!
Eve and Sama ended up coming by the office serendipitously earlier so I got to hear all about their trip and tell them all about Cambridge Hub! SO amazing to meet them and really inspiring to hear that Eve started in much the same way as me, learning as she goes. GREAT day in the office.
Walking the length and breadth of England visiting people protecting the environment – they’re in the pub tomorrow evening so looking forward to meeting them!
Great workshop today by Adam at the Media Trust, all for free! (Thanks Big Lottery Fund). No excuses now for not attempting video on my trip!

I have amended my brief to communicate what I’m doing slightly more simply – the new tagline on the blog reflects it. If you’re wondering what the tagline was previously, it was ‘Seeking initiatives working with young people to achieve environmental sustainability’.
I didn’t take a photo today like I usually do (which is a continuation of the 100 Happy Days project – www.100happydays.com – that I technically finished in April, and a way to communicate my travels and findings over the coming months). However, I found this one that I took last May to brighten up today’s blog post, which definitely fits the ‘100 Happy Days’ philosophy and one I am increasingly trying to live by!
Incredible infographics on this website. This one in particular really caught my attention – it’s not often you find such a clear and simple overview of the impacts of climate change.
Feeling excited for China after experiencing a traditional Chinese tea ceremony earlier (with thanks to Chenxi- chenxi.carbonmade.com), as part of the Eat Cambridge Mill Road food tour.
I went to the Ely Cathedral Business Group event earlier and heard Rown Williams, former archbishop of Canterbury, and Simon Wolfson, CEO of Next, speak about wealth creation. I was astounded by Simon’s controversial stance that the problem is our conception that there are limits to growth and wealth creation. I asked a question about the earth’s environmental limits and he suggested that it will all work out fine because of human innovation.
