“In a year of unprecedented upheaval, I have been immensely impressed by the creativity and resourcefulness of our Roots & Shoots members. It is their generation who have been guiding ours. It’s through their inventiveness and energy in the face of the many obstacles, that we are finding practical solutions for a positive environmental and social impact. Making use of the ‘opportunities’ of lockdown, to re-generate our planet by pursuing activities in their homes, gardens, back yards and local community spaces. No matter what the crisis, R&S continues to rise to the challenge.” – Colin Firth
