you’re reading this it’s probably safe to say you’re kind of into the whole environment thing…. But how do you go from being interested to being part of the movement? Don’t worry, we’re here to show you how!
In August 2022, French climate activists filled in holes at golf courses near Toulouse with cement. In July 2023, Spanish activists followed suit, filling in holes at courses across Spain with soil and planting seedlings on the courses. The reason?

Festival season is in full swing in the UK and Europe, with over one million people attending live music events in London alone, in the first week of July. Glastonbury festival in Somerset, UK attracted a crowd of around 210,000 people. Tomorrowland, Belgium is set to double even that total in a few days time.

Travel can be one of life’s most enriching and inspiring experiences, for those of us privileged enough to have the opportunity. But how does it fit into modern life? In a society that sometimes values productivity over well-being, and indeed quantity over quality, it is easy to fall into the trap of treating holidays like a kind of work. For many, it starts with scouring the internet for the cheapest flights to the most exotic and must-see destinations. Then, once you get there, you feel pressured to see every sight, take perfect Instagram photos and tick off experiences like a to-do list.

I’ve just handed in my notice after 3.5 years of working for a sustainability start-up. Seeing that in writing feels odd. All of the late nights, late starts, laughs with work wifey, cries with work wifey. Moments where it felt like everything was going to come to a screeching halt; moments where we achieved more than we ever thought we could. All…
So, here we are, 2023! The last few years have been tough for everyone, and whilst we can’t promise things will get easier, we do know that taking action for the climate can help to improve our mental health as well as benefit the environment – it’s a win win! With that in mind, we asked some of the Curious.Earth team to share their New Year Resolutions to give you some inspiration…
During the busy festive season, there are so many things to keep track of that being mindful of how we treat the planet can often take the back seat. However, we know that climate change waits for no one (not even Santa!).
So here are some curiously creative ways you can incorporate sustainability practices into your festive traditions from our guest writer, Brian!
Hey there! This week, we’re taking the opportunity to introduce you to some of the team behind the emails and articles you receive in your inbox and social media feeds every week.
Curious Earth is made up of a bunch of curious (green) beans, who do lots of cool stuff for our planet, besides regularly contributing to this newssite! So we thought we’d take the opportunity to turn the tables and make the interviewers the interviewees, taking this word count to share with you some valuable environmental insight from the brains behind the articles. We hope their thoughts and recommendations continue to inspire you and help you to feel more connected to the environment and environmental causes.
