Why is it important to influence friends, family and wider society when it comes to the planet?
Although there are many things we as individuals can do to change our relationship with the planet, our impact can be scaled up massively through influencing others. Each of us are parts of a wider whole: this may include our place as an employee, a resident in the local community, a citizen of our town or constituency, a member of our family and friendship circles, a customer to those we buy goods and services from, and a supporter of a political party.
Through the Green Hacks featured in this category, you can communicate your desire for positive change to others and create widespread change. It might be as simple as sharing some of the #GreenHacks on our page with friends on social media, or changing some of the harmful practices your employers or employers use in their work. By influencing others, positive change can ripple through a community or organisation, creating long lasting change that makes a great difference for nature.
