Most of us are confined to our homes and facing a lot of uncertainty, which can be very unsettling. We discussed coping with uncertainty on 18th April (please get in touch if you’d like a copy of the presentation) but certainly one way of tackling the problem is focusing on things that are under our control – our homes. We could actually use this difficult time to do good both for ourselves and the planet. Bioregional, which inspired St Nicks to adopt the One Planet Living principles in our work, has put together a simple list of “tips and ideas for helping make the world a better a place as well as staying healthy and happy at this tumultuous time”. It’s a bit short on ideas for connecting to nature without a garden, such as the simple but brilliant sit-spot routine, but that’s where we can chip in. You can keep connected by following us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for more online content, inspiration and support. Meanwhile St Nicks’ Patron and local edutainor Anneliese Emmans Dean has published some of her nature-inspired poems as videos on her blog to help keep children entertained when stuck at home. We hope you enjoy these resources and to hear your feedback.
You will find more tips of the week on this page.
