An unusual detour for the Pure Drop of The Lee as the Climate Collective, a climate-change social initiative based in London (www.theclimatecollective.org), invited Source To Sea to an international presentation on Environmental Protection in the Embassy of El Salvador, London. The title of this event “Vulnerabilities : climate change exploration” : human and ecological communities disproportionately affected by climate change. These brilliant dedicated environmentalists staged a wonderful event to mark their four years of study in one of the leading universities in the world. They wanted their voices for the protection of the planet to be heard and their work individually and collectively continues across the globe.
It was an honour to share the stage with Kate Metcalf, co director of Women’s Environmental Network London. With 20 years' experience delivering participatory training, developing community networks and project management , she has worked in international development organisations promoting gender equality in Latin America, Africa and Asia.
