Why work with schools and young people?
Pat Thomas, author of Stuffed, writes why we need to work with children and young people, "For most of us, the quest to create a sustainable future is linked to a desire to make the world a better place for our children. It makes sense, then, to look at sustainability in terms of longevity. This is where schools come in. Only by engaging the next generation in the issues we face and the solutions to them we create a future that is truly sustainable".
