Come and Wear It Wild with me

Caring for nature and wildlife has been something that I have been passionate about since I was a little girl. No matter where I went, I was always happiest in the garden studying the bugs and animals, helping any out that were in need and I’m still that way today. I’ve done my fair share […]

Two days in the Mekong Delta

In April I joined a group of HSBC staff to visit WWF projects supported by the HSBC Water Programme. We travelled to the Mekong Delta, where the river ends its journey from source to sea across a dizzying landscape of waterways, streams and canals. Day one was spent meeting communities that were improving their livelihoods […]

And the winners are…?

When we first entered the UK Blog Awards last year, we had no idea how people would receive us in terms of how they’d vote. Would we make it through the public vote to reach the finals? How much competition would there be? Would we win anything at all? All perfectly normal questions for any […]

Politicians: What will you do for the environment?

So the starting-gun has finally been fired. The shadow-boxing has been going on for weeks, if not months, but, with the dissolution of Parliament, we are now in the final short campaign. This is the period when candidates are hunkered down in their constituencies, pushing and contending for every vote, while party leaders criss-cross the […]

The Light at the Ends of the Earth

For me, Earth Hour is one of the most inspirational events of the year. It’s the world’s largest mass participation event for the environment, bringing together millions of people, businesses and governments to share a common cause and a common sense of purpose – the need to tackle dangerous global climate change.

Why Whitehall must change to meet tomorrow’s environmental challenges

Ever wondered how big policy decisions are made in government?  Decisions like infrastructure investments, healthcare delivery, house building – and dare I say it,  how best to protect the environment.

A day to celebrate, a day to change, a day to prepare

On Sunday 22 March, we’ll celebrate UN World Water Day. Its slogan – “a day to celebrate, a day to change, a day to prepare” – really hits the nail on the head. Water provides us with life, enables our food to grow, sustains industry, creates energy to heat and power our homes and businesses […]
