It’s an inescapable truth. With the world’s current rate of consumption we need three planets to sustain our wants and needs. And the rate of consumption is set to increase to five planets when the population breaks through the nine billion barrier by 2040. According to recent reseach, 66% of those affected by climate-related disasters in developing economies are women. And closer to home, our urban communities become more fragmented and people lose contact with simple pleasures like communal outside spaces and growing their own food.
We need to change the way we live and consume.
It would be easy to become frustrated that not enough is being done… but did you know that across the UK there is a network of women-led groups who, every day, take conscious actions to consume less, to use resources more effectively, to raise awareness at grass roots levels about climate change and to engage women and men in community-based projects such as allotments and orchards?
