Small things can save the planet. Ask yourself each day: What can I do? Can I effect change? Can I make my voice heard? - seem so often to be answered with a resigned “Nothing” or “No”. What possible difference could my living habits make to a green planet , society and for myself. Ecosystem It’s about people rather than the environment It’s about welfare, well-being, equity, social justice It’s about quality of life rather than limiting growth It’s about healthy living It’s about self-development and positive thinking It’s about using the skills and capabilities we have already in a sustainable direction It’s about new ways of doing things (which can be exciting).
