Getting in touch with everyone I have met on this trip…
I hope this email finds you well.
My trip has come to an end and I am now back in the UK – it has been a phenomenal journey, all thanks to all of you who I met along the way.
I am currently reviewing and rounding up all that I learnt, and putting together some final outcomes.
I wanted to get back in touch with each of you, for a number of reasons:
- to maintain our connection, and to reiterate to get in touch if any of you come to the UK in future – it would be great to see you again!
- to ask if there is any useful follow up you would like us to have (e.g. for me to share some of my experiences with you that might be particularly relevant to your circumstances/initiative, to promote again what you are doing through my networks, or something else I might be able to help with!)
- to offer to link you up with any organisations/initiatives I have met elsewhere that are particularly relevant/useful to what you are doing (note I will only do this on agreement of both sides).
More than anything else, this trip has taught me the importance of sharing and of linking up and staying in touch with others working towards shared aims – it is the way real change happens and spreads, how positive actions take root, and, as far as I can see, it’s the way we will move from small pockets of fantastic things happening to full-scale sustainable living.
It has been a privilege to meet every one of you and to learn about the contexts you are working in, the challenges you are facing, the great things you are achieving, but most of all the drive with which you are acting. I hope you all continue to have great success.
With so many incredible people working on these efforts, I feel more positive about the challenges we are all trying to overcome, and more motivated to keep working on them. I hope that these words convey the inspiration you have all given me, and I hope I can reflect it back to give you extra motivation too!
Thank you for meeting with me, and please keep in touch.
I look forward to hearing from you!
