Rosie Watson is running from her home in the Lake District, UK, across Europe, towards Asia (and perhaps beyond). She is meeting people from projects along the way who are creating a new, more sustainable, way of living, and are dedicated to tackling the climate crisis and it’s related issues. They are taking initiative, taking matters into their own hands, and ‘just getting on with it’.

Their stories will be told through photography, interviews and writing on the New Story Run website, social media and other platforms, with the vision of creating a hugely diverse portfolio of ‘new stories’ from across the world!

One of the first stories Rosie has collected is from Jamie Driscoll and his team in Newcastle.
