Who are we?
OURS is a campaign run by students in conjunction with North-West news outlet the Northern Quota. It is a project looking to highlight the issues of climate change on a local and national scale.
The aim is to showcase individuals that are doing their bit to help maintain and give back to our environment. We hope by giving exposure to eco-friendly examples that it will aid the challenge to raise awareness to the important environmental concerns facing our planet.
Climate change is a serious matter that effects 100% of the population, yet it is also a subject that is often brushed to the side and regarded as unimportant by most of us. We are all culpable of possessing a lack of mindfulness when it comes to taking care of the environment we find ourselves living in.
However, through the OURS campaign, we are looking to shine a light on the efforts of pro-active individuals and organisations that are conducive in the attempts to aid our environment.
Why are we doing it?
The OURS campaign has been set-up by students that are passionate about looking after and giving back to our environment and have been so from an early age but never really knew how to attempt to make a difference.
Through our partnership with the Northern Quota however, we now have a platform to release our articles and an audience that our stories will connect with – which is fantastic. We also believe that the campaign is timely, as the past twelve months have been fairly polarising when it comes to climate change in the UK.
We want to change the tone by show-casing the brilliant, positive events and projects that are happening throughout are community and also across the country. Granted, we can’t change the universal views on global warming but we can definitely try to do our bit locally.
