"Sometimes I get a little discouraged about participation in climate action. 😢
It can feel daunting and discouraging – as if I am fighting a losing battle.
For example, I’ll see another person carrying another plastic bag…another plastic bottle… another Styrofoam cup.😐 But today, my spirits were uplifted to heights I can hardly find words to explain. 😍 🌏 I was overjoyed to attend this Youth Leadership Class in Sustainability at Trent University. 👉The students had downloaded the Random Acts of Green app, spread the word, and even went on to tell their parents about it. 👉Students were competing for Green Points to get onto the leaderboard, learning about more actions they can take, and motivating one another to participate!
I was moved by their positive feedback and enthusiasm for our app.
It reminded me how important our work is.
How important it is to engage people.
To speak up.
To stand up.
To stand out. 🤗
Thank you for inviting me, thank you for re-igniting my spirits, and thank you for your belief in our movement, project, and our new App as a tool to initiate change.
You meant more to me than you know ❤️💚" #RandomActsofGreen #green #sustainability #gogreen #greenpower #sustainable #students #localaction #action #youth
