  • We recently worked with Reprezent 107.3FM on a show about... climate change!? Perhaps not the first topic that springs to mind when creating a feature radio show for young people in London!

    As part of the show we decided to speak to some people who were doing something in their local community- a bit of grassroots action. One of the people we were lucky to meet was Owen from Sprouting56. This is his story.

    After the week was out we started to think differently about what an individual can do. Seed bombs, invisible food and getting a green job… not only are these people considering climate change, they are also having a lot of fun in the process!

    We all agreed that climate change needs it’s image lifting! The things that these people are doing are positive and worthwhile. It seems climate change doesn’t have to be all doom and gloom and it doesn’t have to be tackled from the top down. We are all for a bit of grassroots action and go away vowing to speak to our neighbors and get more involved within our local communities.
