"Bright Futures"

I have just returned to Norwich after a fantastic three days at Holt Hall in rural Norfolk, working with forty young British students to develop capacity around energy saving, environmental activism, leadership, and communication. 
As always, US Girl Scout and church camps came flooding back and I won the prize for loudest lungs. The kids seemed to enjoy themselves a lot - even though we forced some maths worksheets on them. 
This programme is similar to the "Water & Enterprise" I helped teach at last year, but we really built university students into the leadership for this year and had UEA and Marshall Scholars running about half of the sessions. And I'm continuing to bully Scholars into Norfolk - had six others come join us for different days to help lead small group work. A grand time was had by all, I do believe!

Marshalls will hopefully be running our own residential around environmental arts activism in Early June, so this was a lovely prelude/warm up to that. 

And now - Norwich for a few hours to see Iorwerth et al., and on to Oxford to see other mates!
