Meet the Gang
Hello there. We are so excited.
Our new mission is The E.A.R.T.H Gang Blog.
Prepare to be astonished by the evolutionary inventions that are repairing the planet.
Sometimes, I have to hide my eyes with my paws when I watch programmes on climate change. They can be a bit scary.
But we have lots of POSITIVE news to share with you!
So much is happening behind the scenes to help the Earth and we’re going to shine a light on the environmental innovators in our blog.
Some of the inventions are beyond genius.
The solutions to help climate change are definitely out there.
And as you will see, creative individuals and teamwork on a global scale are making a HUGE difference.
Our blog shows imaginative young people who are already social entrepreneurs.
We hope you will be inspired and join us.
Join the Gang
and help us
make a difference.

The E.A.R.T.H Gang
The Earth Angel Ready to Help Gang
An out-of-this-world adventure, where four children and a dog must risk everything to help the Earth.
When weird, dark clouds appear over Scotland, theories spread like wildfire. The scariest:
Climate-change is producing these masses.
Soon they will merge and shroud the planet in darkness.
But eleven-year-old Kirsty is an Earth Angel and knows the extraordinary truth behind these sinister clouds. So, when Star Beings ask for help to save the planet, Kirsty and her cousins agree to embark on a quest.
Their mission sounds fun.
An exciting adventure.
ALL the children have to do, is climb a Scottish mountain and find a secret cave. They are given superpowers. The Star Beings promise them support.
Things couldn’t be easier for the Earth Angels. You would think! But…..…incredible missions come with unimaginable challenges and risks for the….. Earth Angel Ready to Help Gang.
