To begin we need to all be educated. It's difficult to make change when you don't understand what you are supposed to be changing. Educting islanders on the climate emergency and how to make a difference does not begin online or in the classroom, it begins in nature. Go out and smell the flowers, listen to the birds, watch the ocean, what you love and understand, you will no doubt want to nurture and save. When you are not outside learning from the source, then you can learn from an unlimited amount of resources online and and in books. A great place to start is with websites like Project Drawdown https://www.drawdown.org/about, a great podcast series and book by Lily Cole - Who Cares Wins, which puts a positive spin on climate change. Who knows what positivity you might learn and experience from the crisis we find ourselves in.
Why the contribution is important
This goes to the source of the problem, our lack of knowledge and understanding of the crisis, and our disconnection with nature. Once we understand and love these, we can then begin to help in any way possible, be it small changes or grand gestures.
