I live in Snowdonia. What a place! If you haven’t been, it’s a must.
I really wanted to become a Rep because basically I can’t sit still knowing I did nothing. I can’t be one of those people who casually sees the issue staring at me as I flick through the paper or Instagram and turn my back on it.
I’m really interested in how we can mobilise communities to take action. I believe people can’t genuinely care about something they don’t understand. And they more likely to act if they care. This emotive interest is what I think it’s all about.
I’m really curious about the solution and how it can be achieved. I’m interested about how the person on the street works with organisations like Surfers Against Sewage and the big policy makers to tackle this, not only in the immediate time ahead but for the long term. A solution my grandchildren’s grandchildren may have the chance to experience first hand.
I think the call to action to the regular member of our society needs to be simple, something they can grasp, see happen and then keep contributing to. This is where the beach cleans are a super way of getting everyone stuck in and talking. Those conversations are powerful in their own right.
