The Climate and the Environment
Many of us would love to know about ways we could influence real change. There are no easy answers – but occasionally I hear of a really good idea, project or concept with the potential for creating real change, or that supports us to remain positively engaged. But so many people never hear about them.
Sign up and I’ll let you know when I hear of something. It might just inspire you and help you feel you’re doing more than just recycling, insulating or signing another petition.
I hear of these because of my involvement with a large number of movements, my love of networking, and living in South Devon – with its strong community of activists, creative and forward thinkers (many of whom I know personally) and an abundance of innovative projects, communities and organisations (for example Schumacher College, Embercombe, Transition Town Totnes (one of the first), WildWise).
Using IT – tips & workshops – for everyday people
We are constantly collecting and adding to our FREE tips for using technology (e.g. 24 help pages on using Zoom).
We also run online tutorials & workshops (e.g. Zoom, Social Media, Calendars, Password Managers, keeping my computer tidy etc.)
I’ll send you occasional tips and will let you know when sessions are coming up.
Online Discussion evenings
We occasionally organise online evening discussions. A chance to get together with others and discuss various issues/topics and what they might mean for each of us. Recent topics included: Charles Eisenstein’s essay “the Coronation” (re the Corona pandemic) / Doughnut Economics / the ‘Police, Crime, Sentencing & Courts Bill’.
“So important to have these spaces to dialogue and to identify our collective and individual responses to being the change”
Who am I?

… I am also passionate about my grandchildren, and the climate and environmental crises.
I have been involved with a number of movements and organisation over many years, from local to international.

My main strengths are as a communicator, networker, facilitator/trainer/leader, coach, initiator and systems & detail thinking.
