Campaign: To educate young people about using the natural world to live sustainably

We’ve always been interested in sustainable living, but sadly, it’s something that many young people don’t know much about.

 

By getting kids more excited about exploring the natural world at an early age, it will give them more knowledge and respect for it later in life.

 

Therefore, my team and I have recently decided to lease a smallholding of land to grow plants and keep animals.

 

With help from Fixers, we’re looking to transform it into a place where young people can go and learn new skills.

 

Hopefully it will inspire others to get their hands dirty and learn how to live sustainably.

Here is a list of people helping me with this Fix:

 

Bronwyn Thomas

Matthew Hendry

Patryk Sawicki

 

And a special thank you to Chris Barnes (26) who has been a driving force behind this Fixers campaign.
