“Planet Earth Needs Our Help” has been invited to, and participated in, many local community events, venues, and exhibitions since 2015:

- A local badger group story-telling, eco session,
- Various local community events supported by East Dorset FOE (Friends of the Earth) and Sustainable Dorset.
- The local BCP Council Wildlife – BioBlitz at Kings Park,

- A long weekend at the New Forest Folk Festival in the children’s activity corner together with Wave 105fm Cash for kids and World Life Conservation.
- Please go to events for updates.
“Planet Earth Needs Our Help” also presented the storybook (as gifts) to HRH King Charles, David Attenborough and The Prince and Princess of Wales. I have received encouraging, personal replies from all of these amazing Eco-Warriors!
Over the years, parents, individual adults, teachers, and school governors have suggested that I offer this as a school resource.
Since January 2016 I have contacted DEED (Development and Environment Education in Dorset) and several local schools, gaining feedback on the resource. I am now ready for the next stage of the journey…..to have copies of the “Planet Earth Needs Our Help” story available as a free resource for local Primary Schools and organisations in the BCP and Dorset Council areas, by Spring 2020. I aim to complement and support their Climate Emergency Declarations in the BCP and in Dorset.
