Climate Change & Me

Lots happening in my neck of the woods these days. This weekend there's a free family festival to empower you to save cash and have fun tackling climate change. It's on Saturday the 11th October 2008 11am - 6pm at Highbury Fields Secondary School.

I shall be time and space travelling with Dr Who in his tardis to look at the effects of climate change and what positive solutions we can put in place. In the afternoon I will be giving workshops on how to be an effective eco-activist (with a few newly learned tricks up my sleeve, thanks to all at Kingsnorth Climate Camp).

Fellow Wise Woman Penney Poyzer will be there too, to answer questions on how to green your home; authors Pete May (of the deliciously funny There's a Hippo in my Cistern) and Wise Woman Nicola Baird (of the fantastically practical Save Cash and Save the Planet) will be joining other writers to sign copies of top eco-must-reads. There will be clothes swaps ('swishing', for those in the know, so my 8 year old neighbour proudly tells me), there will be local grown and home-cooked fayre, there will be workshops on how to make your Victorian home more energy efficient, and how to have fun on your street. This and much more can be found at Climate Change and Me

See you there!

We're running a charity video campaign on behalf of Green Voice
who are hoping to feature on sites like yours.
I'm enquiring if would you be interested in posting the film,
which is a call to sign a petition against excess packaging.
We have video options for sidebar and expandable clips
in traditional advertising spaces as well as blog posts.
Viewers would not leave your site when watching the film,
and the clip would be embedded in a compatible video format.
We are looking at a live date very soon,
please see the clip here:
or here

Please let me know if you're interested in this opportunity,
and help spread the word about this campaign.
Many thanks and I look forward to hearing from you soon
best regards
