Guest Blog: The joy of the present and the great unknown of the future
Over the next two years Lewis will work with Bike for Good to document their VeloCommunities Climate Challenge Fund project and contribute to their activities widening access to cycling and helping Glasgow to become a more sustainable city.
Back in March, Velocommunities was celebrated as the 1,000th project to be awarded a Climate Challenge Fund grant, with the First Minister attending Wellshot Primary School to see some of the work carried out by Bike for Good.
In his second blog, Lewis reports on the recent cycle trip to Bute he took with the Bike for Good team and some of the young people who come along to the after-school clubs. Filmmaker Geraldine Heaney joined the trip to introduce the filmmaking component of the project to the group.
"The next stage will be to build their skills and interest with the cameras and also microphones so we can start to capture interviews and interactions. To find ways to have those conversations about climate change, without people feeling despondent, or glazing over. To find ways for the young people to lead that dialogue on how we manage what is arguably the biggest crisis (in a crowded field) of our time. And that’s the nub of it really – how do we join the dots between what is now and what might become?" Excerpt from blog by Lewis Hetherington
