With the world talking about climate change, as the world changes before our eyes, as the weather changes day by day, as the animals become extinct and as we pollute and litter more and more every second, it can become quite overwhelming to even think how we can make a difference. But imagine hundreds of thousands turning into millions of individuals doing something small in their own lives each day with a measure of consciousness to think, reduce, reuse and recycle and most importantly be kind. . . Imagine, how powerful this could potentially be as collectively we begin to affect change in our own lives, cleaning up our own acts. . . just imagine. . .
Now add social media and the birth of apps to our ever-changing world, and we are able to connect to millions – all around the world, creating dialogue, creating consciousness and creating solutions – crossing over the age, race and gender barriers. . . . Perhaps this is a good place to start? Start to become conscious, start to become aware and connect with others that are becoming aware. . .imagine how we can affect change?
