Laura believes in the importance of educating people not only on the issues, but focusing on solutions, to empower individuals to create change. Whether this be in their personal sphere around the relationship with their body and who they are, or the impact their actions have on the environment; fostering behavioural change can facilitate improvements in environmental and human health simultaneously.
“The future is not something that will merely occur, it is something we are creating- let’s create a healthy, sustainable masterpiece for future generations” -Laura Wells.
