{ October is my favourite month. The colours and all the fallen leaves; nature’s own confetti }

The most important sustainability news this week is The Guardian and watchdog Global Witness’ list of people that’s been killed defending their lands from environmental exploration such as logging and mining. I find it difficult to believe these things are still happening. We live in a time where technology is groundbreaking and information is so readily available, so how can 2017 be on course to be the deadliest on record for these environmentalists? How can we allow that? How can we change that?
