Do you remember in the first lockdown of 2020 when we all stayed home (as much as we were able) but businesses suffered and so did their employees; people were falling ill and we worried about the NHS being overwhelmed — but that time also highlighted how much damage we are doing to our climate on a daily basis.
Do you remember how blue the skies were without vapour trails from airplanes, and the air felt cleaner and fresher because our cars were parked in our drives and not pumping out exhaust fumes, and we could hear the birds singing because the world was quieter? That quiet time really gave us food for thought, and time to reflect.
I came across a short video on Roots called 'One Planet' featuring Joel McKerrow, an Australian performance poet. He, along with 'TEAR Australia' have produced this video which asks the question: 'What if we had only ONE planet, just one?'
The video was produced for a campaign in October 2015, urging Australians to 'live on one planet' for a week and raise money for those most affected by climate change. The message is equally relevant to us here in England.
