This Valentine's Day Jane and all at award winning local voluntary organisation Global Generation invite you to say it with worms.
Global Generation is dedicated to giving young people from all over King's Cross opportunities to play a part in creating a sustainable future. Their projects (listed in the map) focus on three interdependent themes of 'I, We & The Planet'. This approach increases awareness of self, community and the natural environment and instills young people with the confidence to generate change in the business and local community. Global Generation's pioneering projects have demonstrated that bringing different people together to learn through doing and reflecting is an effective way to bring about inner and outer change.
I visited one of the portable allotments (just next to St Pancras Station) just before Christmas where an excited group of local school kids were keen to show off their work growing their own food, making compost and saving rainwater. It's unusual to see school kids so enthusiastic, so proud of work they feel responsible for. If you, like me, tend to only notice local school kids because they annoy you on the street, do ask if you can visit a Global Generation project and get a completely different perspective on King's Cross youth. Global Generation is a local gem and I urge you to support them.
