To start tackling the climate crisis Groundwork has committed to a green revolution both internally within the organization and throughout all project activity it does.
An example is Groundwork’s youth board, called Youth of Today, supported NEECCo’s youth summit regarding climate change…
“We agreed that as a collective, us all making small changes to our lifestyle can make a big difference. So for example; 1 meat-free day a week, reducing the use of single-use plastic, etc. I have pledged that on Friday I will have a meat-free day. If everyone wanted to pledge something that would be great.”
Youth of Today also did a great video for Mental Health Awareness Week which is a few months old but shows the importance of nature in mental health in tackling the dual current climate and health crises. You can watch the video on their YouTube channel
Groundwork handed over their social media to young people so they could have their say and to empower them to take climate action. Head over to their Facebook
