life without YL is limited ...
to stories on mainstream media, and a handful of organizations with a narrow cause, where you can donate, sign a petition, distribute flyers. There is limited opportunity to build community, make an impact, bring in own ideas and initiative. And youth and school … how many exciting, world-changing things can you get involved in?
Are you inspired by #FridaysForFuture, #ParentsForFuture and #TeachersForFuture?
Great – but it is just 1 initiative – popularized via mainstream media – among many equally genius ones still completely unknown to ignorant international media, with scores of bright young hero*ines wielding genius solutions that restore the living planet, heal our communities, radiate positivity and (hey!) are enthusiastically embraced by educators!

The Story of the Birth of the Ark
One fine morning last year, I was sitting at my desk looking out over my garden when something happened that made me realise how we can all become part of the solution to the crisis we are facing with nature.
A fox ran across the garden. Then two hares. Soon after, I lifted my head to see a family of hedgehogs scuttle along the edge of the hedgerow. All these creatures were running away from something and it was like the reverse of the Ark stories I had heard as a kid.
When I went to investigate, what was happening, it turned out that the neighbouring field across the road was being cleared by a digger. A house was being built at the top of the field and the owners had gone in and cleared out years of growth. Brambles, bracken and a thicket of thorny trees and plants that was a home for many families were wiped out in an instant.
All these families had suddenly lost their homes and they had to move into a wild field beside my garden which already housed a lot of creatures with little room and resources. This cleared ecosystem across the road was to be replaced with a monoculture of grass lawn that would get no use, support no life and would require constant maintenance. The owners were completely oblivious to the destruction they had caused to countless creatures.
I immediately realised I had done the same thing myself many times over.
At that moment, ‘We are the Ark’ was born.
