    Last day of the challenge and feel very inspired by it all! Thank you very much  Karina for inviting me to join ! I have done and learnt things that I would not have known about otherwise and I am motivated to carry on making the small gestures that we have instigated as a family. Today on the last day it was really nice to walk down through the village armed with primroses and trowels to plant some flowers by a rather forlorn bus stop. By just being out we were able to have a conversation with somebody who lived next to the bus stop about some of the other issues other than lack of seating- lack of a litter bin being one of them.After initially being a little wary of what we were doing he came and strimmed the verge for us. Thank you Cyril!

    Working in the travel sector we obviously have some issues with flights! Whilst we do promote travelling by train to Mongolia - it is rather a long way! We now arrange to carbon balance the flights used by our holiday and film shoot guests. We do this through C-Level who work with Plan vivo in Mongolia -

    Climate scientist Katharine Hayhoe states that "The reason we care about climate change is because it affects the people and places that we care about." What is happening (or will happen) in your area that will affect the people and places you care about?

    Wow - this is my favourite subject to talk about at length.

    The impact of Climate change on Mongolia is enormous.

    I don't have the time to summarise here but here is a link to my talk at the Royal Geographical Society on the subject.

    Food Smaller Portions
    Fun fact: Your brain and stomach register feelings of fullness after about 20 minutes of eating. While dishing food out, we tend to load our plates with more than we need. Using smaller plates helps to mitigate this. Aside from the environmental benefits, what other benefits might come out of eating smaller portions?

    Showers, no baths. Water displacing bags in loo cisterns.

    What was your process like for restructuring your trip? How can you avoid more air travel in the future?

    Decided to drive, rather than fly. Take vacations closer to home.

    Food Learn More about Silvopasture
    Had you heard of the term "silvopasture" before now? After learning more about it, what do you think is the biggest advantage of silvopasture?

    No I had not. Silviculture increases wildlife abundance and diversity and to contribute to carbon sequestration and climate change mitigation.

    I loved the challenge! Hope there is more of those in the future, but will work towards taking better care of Mother Earth. Meanwhile, we decide to clean a bit - Gorkhi-Terelj National Park has now over 3000 kg less of trash.
