Campaigning for a greener future

Green Planet

The subjects within Green Planet look at the issues affecting the world as a whole. We want to help people stay informed about the important environmental issues such as climate change, the food we eat and biodiversity, and how the way we live is impacting on the planet. We hope that this knowledge will give people the inspiration to act, whether by making changes to their own lives or by joining groups and actively campaigning themselves to make a substantial commitment to protecting the planet.
