Just over there, that’s where all the people are busily looking at goods and products made in third world countries where the workers are paid a poverty wage and their environment is severely damaged. All to keep the happy shoppers of Milton Keynes and other such places happy. Meanwhile the park is almost empty.
Manicured landscape, disrupted and destroyed ecosystems but what for because few are using it even on a beautiful day like this one in the photograph? If this space is not being used and keeping it looking this way requires lots of climate change causing fossil fuel use perhaps it would be better to leave it to return to being a meadow or woodland. The issue here is that very close by is the shopping centre which would have been very busy with people having driven there using up resources and causing climate change while buying goods made by exploited labour in countries far away. We need to change drastically. At this point in Campbell Park, Milton Keynes we were perhaps five or at most ten minutes walk from the shopping centre on a warm Spring day and yet the park appears very empty. We always found the wonderful Campbell Park very under utilised when we lived in Milton Keynes compared to say London parks. 24th May 2009.
