Armchair activism

Armchair Activism 950

There are many other ways you can make Cornwall a better place without even leaving the comfort of your sofa!

It’s not just about rolling your sleeves up and getting in the garden, for Cornwall to become a greener, happy, healthier place for wildlife and people we need to get the message out there.
We need people, whispering, talking and shouting about the environment. Knowledge is power so it’s time to start letting people know.

If you'd like a copy of these activities to keep, you can download our Armchair Activism Activity Cards here!
