A weekly (most of the time!) round-up of stories, events and projects coming out of the YesTribe.
Researched and written by Richard Potter.
NIKKI GILBEY - EXPEDITION GREAT BRITAIN
Nikki Gilbey is joining the S/V Seadragon as it travels around Scotland during leg 2 of eXXpedition Great Britain, to conduct research and raise awareness about the impact of plastics on people and on the sea. In particular, eXXpedition Great Britain will explore how plastics, chemicals, endocrine disruptors and carcinogens in our personal and global environment can cause disease.
The expedition also aims to engage women in scientific narratives relating to the consumer choices they make and their long-term health impacts on themselves and our environment. S/V Seadragon’s all-female crew will be stopping off along the way to work with local communities and tourists to raise awareness, share findings and educate.
Nikki would be very grateful for any help you could give: her fundraising page is here.
THE SNOW CAMP COLLECTIVE
November 30 saw the launch of the Snow Camp Collective, a passionate tribe that supports the work that Snow Camp is doing to support inner-city young people. Snow Camp uses snowboarding and life skills programmes to help them grow in confidence and self esteem, develop as individuals, reflect on key issues, develop new skills and make positive choices during their lives.
You can find out more about the Snow Camp Collective here.
Have you been inspired by any of these stories? Do you have your own to share? We’d love to hear about it. The YesTribe is a community that is free to anyone who is looking to make life less restricted, more enjoyable, more interesting and more memorable. Your story doesn’t need to be an endurance adventure, many of the YesTribe are making films, raising money for good causes and developing the community
