Mindful Monday

Mindful Monday #2. Make Yourself Heard!

There are many issues in the big wide world of conservation, that without your support, would not get a hint of recognition. So how can you speak up for nature and make yourself heard?

Join a campaign!

The more people that share and show their support for environmental issues, the more likely it is for politicians to take the time to listen.

Howl has recently supported the Vote for Bob campaign. Bob is actually a little red squirrel who has decided enough is enough. It’s time to put the nuts down and speak out for the disappearing woodlands, meadows and wildlife that surrounds him. He needs your help to ask every party leader what they intend to do to look after our wildlife, countryside and wild places. That’s why he’s off on the campaign trail – to help ensure nature is back on our politicians’ agendas.

How?

Backing a campaign couldn’t be easier. All you need to do is sign up with an email address and you are often free to customize your message, making your voice a little more personalised. To strengthen this stand further, be sure to share, share, share, so we can unite and be heard!

Social media is a fantastic way of finding campaigns that are close to your heart and a simple search is guaranteed to guide you to more than you can imagine, particularly if they have received a huge amount of media attention already. For example, The People’s Climate, the largest climate march in history has received massive social media attention are demanding the world we know is within our reach: a world with an economy that works for people and the planet; a world safe from the ravages of climate change; a world with good jobs, clean air and water, and healthy communities. Make your voice heard here!

So what are you waiting for? Get those paws signing (and don’t forget to share!)
