Empire of Ants (video) #LetItThrive

57 weeks ago a Sweedish student (aged 15), armed with a simple sign, protested to her national government - demanding stronger action on climate change.

Today in 2019, Greta Thunberg represents a wave of change, both in public-opinion and in action. On September 21st people around the world participated Greta's weekly strike for action, but this strike was different from the previous 56...

This time it is estimated FOUR million people around the world took part, including a number of entrants into Clean Planet Energy's latest project.

Clean Planet Energy is part of the solution for the both the #plastic and #climate crisis. A single CPE ecoPlant can remove 15,000 tonnes of plastic from the world each annum, replacing it with ultra-clean fuel, reducing the demand for fossil fuels.

In September 2019 we launched the 'Clean Our Planet' competition. We asked young people from across the UK to tell us what they are doing to help clean our planet. The response was incredible, and today we found out that a number of our entrants also took part in the Global Climate Strike (and other related initiatives).

Here's a handful of inspiring CPE entrants:

- Savvy is leading the way!

This is Savvy, aged 10. Her idol is David Attenborough and later in life wants to do a degree at Cambridge university in Natural Science. In Savvy’s entry to Clean Our Planet project she speaks of creating a nature pond full of native species. Savvy joined the Global Climate Strike with this awesome poster. Thanks to Kez for sending us the photo!

- Scarlett , Ebony and Lexie out in force!

Here we have Scarlett , Ebony and Lexie. They are out at the Global Climate Strike n Liverpool at St Georges Hall. These friends are aged 9 from Cheshire and care deeply our environment, and when not striking Scarlett takes part in weekly litter picks, cleaning up the area around her. Thanks Gemma for the photos!

- Jaden lectures his class as to the importance of a greener world! On the day before the Global Climate Strike, Jaden (aged 10) was given the opportunity by his teacher Mrs Grinstead. to teach his class for 15 minutes on any subject of his choice. Instead of choosing a pop-culturue topic (such as Lego or the Avengers), Jaden chose to speak about our planet and how we need to take care of it. In one swift swoop Jaden had educated his entire class with this brilliant presentation... here are a few slides from it....

Jaden spoke about how the Rainforests are disappearing very quickly. He let the class know that the good news is there are a lot of people who want to save rainforests, however the bad news is that saving rainforests is not going to be easy. He educated his class that it will take the efforts of many people working together in order to ensure that rainforests and their wildlife will survive for their children to appreciate, enjoy, and benefit from. Thanks for the slides Kelly.
Next Jaden let his class try and see the big picture. He said that we are often blind to the interconnectedness of everything that supports life, a web so complex and interdependent, we are only beginning to understand it. The food chain, from the tiniest little microorganisms to the largest creatures on earth, keep us humans alive.
Finally Jaden wanted to let his class know the importance of eradicating Global Pollution. When Jaden entered his video into the CPE project he also spoke about how important it is for everyone to be involved in cleaning their local and wider area!

- Will spent his Sunday helping Clean Our Planet! The day after the Global Climate Strike, Will and friends continued their work in helping us all live in a clean planet. Will (aged 12) travelled to Filey with 8 other members of his school. They spent the day on the beach collecting plastic waste. In total they collected 12 kilos of litter between them! Wow!

Will taking part in the “Great British Beach Clean”. It’s an annual event organised by the Marine Conservation Society. Thanks Jo for the photo!

- A massive thanks to all above for providing the photos and showing us the awesome work the Clean Planet Energy project entrants are doing to clean our planet!
