Countdown to DAY ONE -
start making a difference

About Day One

Day One is inspired by my shock and dismay at discovering climate change. A year ago I had little knowledge about human effects on the environment, since having learned from books and documentaries I now realise the scale of what is to come. I feel anger that this has been allowed to happen and desperate because people seem to be turning the other way.

 

I want to know that I am doing something, it makes me feel better about what is happening. When my children grow up and look back at this time I hope they will see that I tried. I don’t think it’s acceptable that we leave this crisis for future generations to deal with. I can’t save the planet but I believe we can make a difference in our community. Being prepared for the worst that doesn’t come is surely better than not being ready when it does.

 

Chris Pine’s character in Wonder Woman (2017) says “If you see something wrong happening in the world you can either do nothing or you can do something and I already tried nothing”. We have already tried nothing.
