I'll be the first to admit I have not made the most of the wonderful Campfire Convention. Joining my first zoom call with members yesterday made me realise what I've been missing out on. A lot. So that is about to change as I find my way around the site and try to connect with others in our shared goals.

I enjoyed your article and am really interested in following your project in Campfire.

As a primary teacher I'm trying to prepare the children I teach for a more sustainable future.

I taught  abroad for a number of years. In Kazakhstan , in a Buddhist school and later in the Middle East.
