Today is the start of Go Green Week, when students at schools and universities around the UK raise awareness about climate change and campaign for a move towards cleaner energy.
I think it’s great that young people are getting passionate about causes like this, learning how to put their ideas and opinions forward, and change things for the better.
For businesses, it’s up to us to ensure we’re taking the right steps to neutralise our carbon footprint and reject the idea that big business puts profit over people and the environment.
Personally, I’m hoping that in the coming years we will see the government invest more in cleaner energies. For now, we can all do our bit to help, whether it’s cycling to work instead of driving or voicing our disagreement with fracking. If you have an opinion on the matter, don’t be afraid to share it. Shout it out loud!
