Highlights from today's episode include:
some of the messages in there really brought it home to me about this need, and the lack, if you like, or the lack of education, our children do get in the regular curriculum. To know more about this, and actually, as I've got more into it, I'm actually astounded by not only the lack of knowledge within children, but also adults as well about animal species
But more than that, I think a lot of them do stress the importance of the work in terms of yeah, nothing is being done about this to educate kids. And, the main point about the whole message is for children to learn about it, whilst they're having fun. So, to play a board game with their family is a positive thing anyway because it gets them off the screens, which there's always too much
And it is some of that as well, of course, but that really at the end of the day, if one reader, one child can become a zoologist or, or a conservationist, hopefully a marine biologist, as a result of being inspired by reading my stories, then that will be it for me that that I will be satisfied, you know, so, that will have sort of complete the healing process, if you like from someone who has come full circle from being like you said, you know, naturally aware of the importance of nature and the other species and everything surrounding us to go into a different world and then coming back again into recognizing the importance of that.
ABOUT CJ WILLIAMS
CJ Williams is one of six siblings and is a former City of London trader, who was also an independent headhunter in financial markets. He came up with his brand altogether, which he will establish as a recognized player in the educational technology sector. His ultimate aim is to fund a charity called RACE - Raising Awareness in Children of the Environment. As a parent, grandfather and country boy at heart, he is passionate about looking after the countryside and ongoing green issues, to Save The Planet. His inspiration originally came from the likes of Carl Hiaasen, the investigative journalist and hilarious author, the respected conservationist Rachel Carson and, more recently David Wallace-Wells as well as the brilliant Sir David Attenborough, of course. He has three sons by wife Justine: Oliver, Jack and Hugh, and they are grandparents to Louie, Ella and Freddie. He wants to help parents reclaim their children from screens with the launch of his book series and a double-sided, fun and fast family board game with a wildlife and environment protection theme, for two to four players from the age of 4 to 104 called Planet B Race all about animals - their habitat, bodies, diet and threats and good and bad things impacting the environment. He has collaborated with a number of people on the project, including talented illustrators Milli-Jane Pooley and Nadja Vorovich, Jay at developer TJ Technology, Olivia Gibbs at Innovative, Terry Burns and editor Marcy Pusey. CJ would love to hear from people who are interested in becoming trustees of his charity - conservationists and people with previous experience on boards, for example.
