“Planet Earth Needs Our Help” has been invited to, and participated in, many local community events, venues, and exhibitions since 2015:
- The Poole and East Dorset Art Society Open “Planet Art” exhibition @ Upton Country Park,
- Various climate change ECO Exhibitions and events at the Poole Dolphin Centre Eco Hub (where we have been allocated a special activity corner, which is ongoing),
- Wimborne Green Festival
- A story-telling session at Poole Library (who have copies of the book for loan),
- A local badger group story-telling, eco session,
- Various local community events supported by East Dorset FOE (Friends of the Earth) and Sustainable Dorset.
- The local BCP Council Wildlife – BioBlitz at Kings Park,
- A “Planet Earth Needs Our Help” exhibition @ Hengistbury Head (Upstairs Gallery)
- A long weekend at the New Forest Folk Festival in the children’s activity corner together with Wave 105fm Cash for kids and World Life Conservation.
“Planet Earth Needs Our Help” also presented itself (as gifts) to Prince Charles and to David Attenborough, receiving encouraging, personal replies from both these amazing Eco-Warriors!
Over the years, parents, individual adults, teachers, and school governors have suggested that I offer this as a resource to schools.
Since January 2016 I have made contact with DEED (Development and Environment Education in Dorset) and several local schools, gaining feedback on the resource. I am now ready for the next stage of the journey…..to have copies of the “Planet Earth Needs Our Help” story available as a free resource for local Primary Schools and organisations in the BCP and Dorset Council areas, by Spring 2020. I aim to complement and support their Climate Emergency Declarations in the BCP and in Dorset.
