We are just days away from the next group of Pale Blue Dot students starting their course. I will be asking them to write up their experiences, so watch this space for some interesting comments!
First session involves bringing an artefact as a way of telling people how they see the world. I brought a block of surf wax – not least of all because it is a symbol of one of the things that is most important in my life, but also and an example of the change in my attitude towards sustianability. I know its only a small thing, but I managed to find a surf wax which is made from 100% natural ingredients, and that is fully biodegradable. 10 years ago, it wouldn’t have really been my primary choice for which to buy – but I used it as an example of how things can change – if we find alternatives that are just as good as any other product and the price is right, then more and more people will do the right thing.
I’m looking forward to seeing what others bring with them.
Cheers for now, Darren
