The New Scientist needs little introduction. First published in 1956, it’s a well known and popular magazine covering all aspects of science, technology and beyond. It is also proactive in its support for charitable organisations; the Signal Boost project, started in May 2020 as a response to the difficulties arising from the Covid-19 restrictions, allows charities working in the fields of science, technology, medicine or conservation to ‘get their message out to a global audience’ by giving a page of copy in each issue to a selected organisation, free of charge!
We’re very chuffed to say that the featured charity this week is – drum roll please – The Word Forest Organisation!
The article was written by Rachel Baxter, one of our wonderful volunteer copywriters, and she brilliantly sums up why we do what we do and how it is making a huge difference to the tree planting community over in Kenya.
We are indebted to Rachel for her energy and tenacity and to the New Scientist for giving us this wonderful, worldwide platform.
The magazine is out on 6th February 2021.
That’s today, get your copy from your local newsagent or subscribe to New Scientist to read it online now!
