2. The change: Going green
Lockdown allowed people all over the world to see previously polluted places in a clearer light (no pun intended).
There were goats taking over a town centre in Wales, sea lions on the sidewalk south of Buenos Aires, and wild boar feasting near apartment buildings in Corsica. We saw clean water in the Venice canals and unpolluted skies in China, Italy and Los Angeles.
For many, this has resulted in a refreshed perspective and a desire to preserve the beauty of nature, particularly on a local level.
You could: Serve the planet
Harness the power of the natural world – particularly in your local environment. What could you do to support your immediate and extended community? Could you host virtual tours of local beautiful places? Do you have an idea to improve recycling? Could you create ‘wildlife-friendly’ areas in your city?
If you’re passionate about the environment and sustainability, care about the health of the earth and its beings, now might be a good time to join up with others and create businesses that benefit the planet.
