In this special episode of The Clean Energy Revolution from National Grid, we’re finding out how people like you and me are doing their bit to live more sustainably and help support our planet's resources.

Helen Skelton explores how individuals are playing their part in one of the most incredible revolutions in human history.

Energy connects and enables the way we live, work and play, and making it greener also means looking at all the day-to-day ways we can help. Looking for inspiration? You'll find it here!

Alongside their day jobs working at National Grid, these people are walking the walk in terms of sustainability! We hear from Brianna and Julia in the Northeast US who are passionately raising animals, growing food and running their farms with sustainable practises.

Whether they’re driving EVs, campaigning for issues they care about or nabbing their colleagues by the water cooler to share what they’ve learned about sustainable living, these inspiring individuals prove it’s possible to make everyday changes to play our part in our climate future.

In the UK, Helene loves to run and hike in nature to stay in touch with her rural Yorkshire roots, but is passionate about challenging misinformation around all the supposedly sustainable choices available to us.

Meanwhile Nicolle shares how it all came together for her on a woodland education day for families. She’s now studying an Environmental Science degree alongside her job at National Grid.And what do our everyday heroes hope for the next generation? Find out as they share candid stories in their own words.

We'll be back next time as we dive into how our natural world can meet with technical innovation for Carbon Capture and Storage.
