The Weekly Challenge, 22nd April – I’m not just a consumer, I…
.
To recognise and celebrate Earth Day on the 22nd April, this week’s Challenge is posed by environmental charity Global Action Plan and innovation consultants New Citizenship Project:
Studies show that when we think of ourselves as consumers, we’re less likely to tackle society’s biggest problems, from climate change to international inequality. However, when we think of ourselves as citizens, we’re more likely to participate, volunteer and come together to make our society stronger and more effective. We are happier, healthier and more invested when shaping our options, not just choosing between them.
.
Our challenge to you is to develop a creative response to “I am not just a consumer, I……” What does being a conscious citizen mean to you? Get creative! You could write a poem or short story, create art, make a zine, create a photograph series, or make a placard. Think about your power as a citizen and how could you could celebrate your care for the Earth.

We want to share your responses with business and political leaders to show that we have more to offer than just being shoppers – that given the right opportunities, we are able to achieve a better, more sustainable world together.
