Between the 20-27 September 2019, a record 7.6 million people took to the streets to strike for climate action. The biggest climate mobilisation in history. We are proud to have been a part of that on Jura, not quite marching down a “street” but strolling down the only road for 2 miles, taking in and appreciating our environment on a glorious Autumnal day.
We started off by creating our banner, embellishing it with a pledge each on what we would each do to reduce our impact on the environment. Among the pledges were:
Cut out clingfilm
Never buy bottled water
Switch to soap and bamboo toothbrushes
Move electricity supplier
And many more.
Our stroll led us to Corran path, where we did a beach clean and a bit of action – planting signs to encourage users to take care of the beach.
