Last Saturday, me and my Mum went to the Region of Waterloo’s Eco Fest to represent Transition KW and to have fun.
I was in charge of running the crafts. There were many kids interested in making bird feeders out of milk or juice cartons. Everyone’s craft looked fantastic and unique. It was a great way to recycle the cartons, have fun and do something good for Nature.
I think it’s important for families to get involved in Transition KW, to teach kids how to be part of a community adapting to climate change. It’s also chance for us kids to remind adults how to be delighted and excited by Nature and the outdoors.
This is our future. When we grow up we want clean air and water, natural food, healthy plants and animals and a safe, caring community. If we all work together now, we could have the future we all want.
