A home for all is my submission for Loving Earth Project, an initiative which celebrates the people, places and creatures we love which are threatened by the environmental breakdown.
For me, like others who are fortunate enough to have unrestricted movement, one of the few positive outcomes of living in the midst of a global pandemic has been having more time to spend in nature. Last spring I began a series of daily walks around my local park which culminated in ‘Gränby Park’ an artistic project which I submitted as part of the 'Perspectives on Climate: Ecopsychology, Art and Narratives' course at CEMUS, Uppsala University. In this blogpost I write about the inspiration behind the piece and reflect on walking as way of connecting to nature.
For the past two weeks I have spent time in the company of 25 incredible young people, learning more about Quaker work at the international level and witnessing the United Nations in action at the Quaker United Nations Office (QUNO) in Geneva. The experience provided overwhelming moments, inspiration and joy as difficult topics were explored and friendships developed.
