Welcome to my 'Activism' page! I decided to put this section on my website because I feel it's important to speak out about 2 of the biggest issues affecting everybody right now - That is the environmental and mental health crises we're in the middle of. I'm not a environmental scientist, mental health professional or a politician with the ability to create policies but It's too easy to say to yourself 'stay in your lane,' and not speak out because I'm not one of those said occupations.
These issues affect us all so to turn a blind eye to it and keep my head down would be a real shame. I feel we all have a responsibility to each other and the world we live in to take MUCH better care of our environment and mental health. Acting on these things, demanding our environment be protected better and that more provisions be made to look after one anothers mental health will only serve to make our world a better place to live in. Not only that, but a place that can sustain life.
It's time to stop kicking the can down the road. A healthy body is nothing without a healthy mind and a healthy environment. The sooner we learn that all these things are connected, the more willing we'll be to nurture and protect them.
Below are a series of links and resources I feel may be useful for anyone wanting to learn more and be more involved in helping the environment and their own/others mental health. Please let me know if you think I should add anything else to this section! Enjoy.
I will be writing more on these 2 topics on my Substack page too so if you'd like to hear more from me on these things click the link and subscribe https://wgreenkinesis.substack.com/about
