‘Small acts, when multiplied by millions of people, can transform the world.’ – Howard Zinn.
It’s almost impossible to be unaware of the global climate strikes that are currently underway. The world is rightly hearing calls for an acceptance of responsibility, immediate and drastic positive change. And whilst we know that larger changes may need to come from high up, I’ve been making small changes of my own, so that moving forward, I contribute less to the mess we’ve already made.
