Keep going relentlessly with these tools and tips

You’re in the thick of it. Covid-19 is taking centre stage, but the climate crisis is still waiting in the wings.

The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) has emphasised that we must pursue a green, resilient and inclusive economic recovery. Nevertheless, we have to remember that the pandemic probably won’t automatically bring everyone to their senses and provide the correct course of action.

And it isn’t going to happen overnight either.

We’ve written about seizing the moment and bouncing forward previously, but we’re in for the long haul and the need for action remains urgent. So, we must think smarter, stay focused, and adopt a bold and positive mindset.

Here we have ideas and inspiration to help you stay persistent and determined, no matter how disheartened you may feel, in the continued fight for a better, fairer future.

 

Hang in there and stay tenacious!
