Campaign calls one million feet to Copenhagen
A new initiative is calling for young people to get more involved with environmental issues by painting their feet.
Footprint Friends wants to send one million feet to Copenhagen and is inviting youngsters to upload photos of their painted feet for use in a 'book of dreams' creative project.
This will be presented to world leaders at the upcoming climate change conference in the Danish capital.
Karen Ford, founder of Footprint Friends, explained that children should be encouraged to engage with green issues and also requested written submissions for the cause.
"Our campaign looks to engage young people in a fun but memorable way, helping to make them aware of the world around us," she said.
"We're really grateful to powerPerfector as our sponsor, as this helps us reach so many young people and ensure their voices are heard in the debate."
The scheme is part of National Foot Painting Week, which is running across the UK from October 5th to 9th.http://www.footprintfriends.com/
