Be the change!

In Sustainable Communities we are all working towards a one-planet lifestyle. This means reducing our use of resources whether by using less energy or using local, fresh and seasonal  food or managing our leftovers constructively so that they don’t become waste sent to landfill. We won’t get to a one-planet lifestyle by buying new things and then offsetting their footprint by buying carbon offsets. Nor will we get there by expecting someone else to do something about it.

So we need to ‘be the change’ and live the way we want the world to become.

We also need to understand the term ‘learned helplessness’ as this describes a great part of our community who are waiting for someone else to take the necessary action. We need to do it for ourselves and be the change .
