Just a shortie to introduce myself - I am a writer/broadcaster based in the UK and I specialise on the broad topic of Downshifting and Sustainable Living.
I also put together a non-profits awareness campaign called National Downshifting Week (UK/USA), see http://www.DownshiftingWeek.com
I believe there is great power in the 'Individual' to create and effect change for the common good of our local and global environments.
I also believe the best way to bring this about is by using encouraging methods, rather than enforcing prohibitive or negative action - this 'dip your toes in' approach has worked incredibly well so far and I will continue to spread the good, green message this way.
I will post details of my trip to America this summer, as I launch the 1st National Downshifting Week across the pond and hope for your support of it.
I look forward to 'meeting' you here!
