As to our plans for our trip, our session plans are completed on our two main themes – advocacy and the environment. We have also some prepared for leadership and event planning which we are hoping will be really useful for the GGGA! As well as running trainings, we are hoping to help start a recycling project and begin a garden! I have been getting lots of practice at growing things at work, in preparation – not sure the same rules apply in Guyana as England though! After we’ve finished our project, 4 of us get to go travelling (sorry Laura and Zoe) to the interior, and to the AMAZON RAINFOREST which is almost a lifetime dream for me so that is certainly fuelling the excitement.
The first stage of the trip is to Gatwick Travelodge, where we will all meet to have team photos, get very excited, and have a chilled evening before flight #1 to Trinidad! Therefore, we are going to have a very busy blog starting next Saturday – so keep your eyes peeled and some free time for reading and being jealous of our adventures J
Good luck to all the GOLD teams setting off shortly, and we look forward to hearing about it all when we get back!
Lots of GOLD love and excitement
And the GOLD Guyana 2012 Team! xxxx
