Monday 1 March | Teresa Ferreira

For her #100DaysOfGreenNevis project, viola player Teresa Ferreira is asking 100 different people over 100 days a single question about climate change.

Since 1st of February I started the challenge of asking 100 different people over 100 days one question about climate change and how it makes them feel.

“The environment and nonviolence is like a marriage made in heaven,” Mr. Glass said. “If we treated the environment with nonviolence we wouldn’t have the polar ice cap melting away.” Philip Glass  

Do you agree with this sentence? 

I chose to take this action because since very little I have always been really conscious and curious about the environment. From what I remember, since very young I was vegetarian, I have always been a very animal protector. In my house we have always recycled, we don’t use drying machine and air conditioning. But I feel that most of the people still think that there is no evidence of the climate change. For these reasons, I decided to ask people about climate change and make them aware of it.

 I feel that one of the reasons why people don’t want to change and help the world is because they don’t believe that Climate Change is real and don’t see the effects of them. Therefore, the first question to everyone is : “How do we know climate change is real?”

Did you know that the current warming trend is extremely likely (95%) to be  the result of human activity? 

How does this make you feel? 

I hope that in these 100 days people will be more aware of what is actually happening in the world and will start seeing themselves as people who have power to make the world a better place. 

From 1 February 2021, Nevis is running #100DaysOfGreenNevis, where our musicians, staff and trustees will each take on a task for 100 days linked to Sustainability. We’d love you to join us, either by following the campaign online to get ideas of what you can do, or to show us you own actions for us to share. If you would like to know more, do get in touch at 

Nevis Ensemble’s #GreenNevis campaign in 2019 won the Environmental Sustainability award at the 2020 Scottish Awards for New Music, and was shortlisted for Best Campaign by Julie’s Bicycle.
