Fantastic reminder of why I’m doing the trip!
Video blog 1 – 30th Aug – getting ready for off: http://youtu.be/YwOqEdzlSFE
Environmental action is everywhere when you start looking – went past an anti-fracking camp on a visit to Yorkshire to see Grandpa this morning. More info about the advances of fracking in the UK can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BYniYtJEeeI (as advertised by the campers)
…and first meeting arranged! I’ll be finding out about an initiative called musora.bolshe.net which is a movement to have zero waste in Russia and carry out clean ups etc. Very excited!
So many interesting chats and so much useful advice and helpful tips – last meet up before the trip! If you haven’t read Ken’s book, ‘The Rise of the Reluctant Innovator’, then you should – it will inspire you: http://www.reluctantinnovation.com/
… found out courtesy of Global Citizen. They are launching a campaign called #showyourselfie which is all about securing a positive future for the planet. Find out more at showyourselfie.org (not too sure about the name but I guess it could be good to jump on the bandwagon of this social media fad!)
