Case Study - Theo <ul><li>Theodore Williams was 17 when he took part in Envision at his school, Cardinal Pole in Homerton, London. </li></ul><ul><li>“ Just before I joined Envision I didn’t do anything outside of lessons - volunteering was something completely new to me. I got involved at the start just because there wasn’t much else to do - I was just following the crowd.” </li></ul><ul><li>“ It had a huge effect on me too – I became much more interested in environmental issues. This has affected my career because I got interested in sustainable buildings and architecture. Before Envision I was completely ignorant towards the world around me. I didn’t want to do anything. I just did nothing. I didn’t know anyone outside of school, no adults apart from my mum.” </li></ul>
