Welcome to the October box!
Let's look at this month's theme
This month, as the leaves turn orange and brown, our monthly activities are about the beautiful environment around us, and about the activists who are working hard to preserve our planet outside of the spotlight of mainstream media.
Aside from the wonderful work of Greta Thumberg, there are so many other children making history! Unfortunately, their voices are not amplified in the same way. Sometimes, they are even cut out of the story completely. Activist Vanessa Nakate from Uganda was cropped out of an image at a climate gathering for example, while her 3 white peers remained in the story. Nevertheless, she continues her work - both for the planet and for representation.
We’ve added some links below that you may find helpful if you’d like to learn more about these wonderful children’s stories, and others.
We hope you enjoy this month's experience as much as we have enjoyed preparing it!
