For some time now and along with many others, I have been concerned and depressed to read over and over again about the state of the climate, inequalities amongst people, dwindling habitats, carbon emmissions, plastic waste, mass extinctions and all the other events which, through carelessness and greed, we are causing.

 

And like many others I feel that there is not very much that I, as one individual, can do to alter things.

 

It occurred to me that I needed to seek out something positive, and so I began trying to find individuals who are effecting change aroung the world.

 

There are a lot of them.

 

I post paintings or drawings on Instagram of the people I discover, some alive now, and some who spoke of the future consequences of not respecting the planet, who have since died.

 

Here are a selection.
