Today Mary is talking to Laura Kate (LK) Howells.
LK designs and delivers environmental education programs inspired by nature, led by creativity, driven by solutions, and based on the notion that small actions done by many can make a big difference through her business Essentially Eco.
This year she was 1 of 15 out of 166 applicants that received the Creative Ireland Climate Action Fund for her project Stories of Change. Stories of Change is a storytelling project that tells the tales of good people around Ireland doing good things for Earth Care, People Care, and Fair Share.
She believes creativity is instrumental in communicating the challenges of the climate crisis and believes stories and solutions are an effective vehicle to stimulate interest, ignite the imagination and empower community-led climate action.
When she isn’t busy writing stories, organising exhibitions, or exploring South Kerry she is working for Concern Worldwide planning COP ON. A climate action festival of music, art, talks, and workshops.
“Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is. Youer than You.” DR Seuss.
