Kirsty

 

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.

 

Haggis

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!

Flora

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.

 

Bryn

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.

 

Finn

Our blog shows imaginative young people who are already social entrepreneurs.

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.

Meet the Author

Ellie Linden lives on the Firth of Forth in Scotland with a real Haggis – her lovable, miniature schnauzer, of course. As you can see, she enjoys hugging trees for their vibrant energy, just like Kirsty.

For as long as she can remember, Ellie has been passionate about the environment. If more people fell in love with Nature and the magical, mystery of life, she believes we would make the changes to preserve our beautiful home, Planet Earth.
