"It seems that not only do you need people cleaning up the reefs, but you need to stop people from dumping in the ocean. Everyone knows its easier to clean the apartment after you have hit your roommate with a shovel...I'm not condoning…"

"Ah yes, I remember when the 30's seemed so far away. They are knocking at your door so quickly! I love the immediate practical application and easy to implement idea you had. You sound confident in being able to do it - go for it!"

Jane Crowley commented on paras's blog post If given a chance, which is the first thing you like to change in your country?
"@paras - it might be a problem specific to the areas I've lived in - Surrey is reknown for being pretty self-involved and York is a walled city so a certain amount of that 'bubble' mentality seeps into everyday life. Not that I'm…"

"The insular mindset - the idea that nothing outside ones own little world is important. There's a lot of alienation and reserve in the UK. We tend to ignore anything that doesn't directly impact us and we don't make the effort to…"

"Very nice! I find your post very inspiring, and writing in a interesting, intellectual manner. I find your ideas to be very true and remember; without the will to work, even brilliant minds would found nothing."

"Jane- I've given you a +1 for 'spark' because your post is a great reminder of how different our strengths are -- and how essential we are to one another. I think many of us have a tendency to discount our own strengths and think the…"

Encouraging local food production

Being from a fairly affluent area of England, I was pretty convinced that I wouldn't find much on the web about food security in my local area. It turns out I was wrong. Here in the fringes of London, tower blocks and concrete are thriving but local food production is pretty much non-existent. This is particularly true of Croydon, a fairly notorious London borough that's right on my doorstep.



What I found interesting was that "Making Local Food Work", a lottery sponsored initiative,… Continue

My tiny bit of help for ending water poverty

Being stuck in the middle of an undergraduate degree cuts off any opportunity for me to afford time out to volunteer at the source of the problem. The debt I'm currently in because of said degree means that really donating money is not an option - if it was my money I'd go for it, but I'm borrowing from too many people just now. Both these facts sit badly with me. I'd particularly love to go out and actually see a difference being made.



In light of the fact that the two main avenues… Continue

dreaming of myself in 2020

In 2020 I will be 31. Good gravy that's a scary thought. What will I be doing when I am 31, ie. when I am supposed to be sorted with life and making some kind of positive contribution to the world? I suppose in an ideal world I will be living very simply on the coast somewhere with a delicate marine infrastructure (so most places really). I say this because I want to be there to help with it.



I spent a very short while in 2008 involved in cleaning up a reef in Thailand where I had been… Continue

Shadowing a hero

Well, I found someone to shadow, except she wouldn't like it if I referred to her as a hero. Kjerstin Erickson runs FORGE, a company that works with refugees across Africa to come up with collaborative solutions to lay the foundations for successful future communities in places currently torn apart alternately by war and poverty. The main reason I chose Kjerstin to follow was a blog post she had written on Social Edge. She was discussing the problem with the term "social entrepreneur". Her… Continue
