This powerful, must-see video, by Spencer Sharp and Prince Ea from the US, was the winner of a 2016 Connect4Climate competition that sought “inspiring climate change solutions” from young people and received 860 videos from 155 countries.
The winning entries were chosen by “renowned filmmakers, climate influencers, world leaders, and communication professionals.”
Please keep in mind that the film was shown in 2016. So much devastation has occurred in the interim to heighten the urgency of its message.
If all those reading this post adopt one change that you haven’t made to date, we can collectively make a difference. Here are some options.
Consider this one from the above list: “If every household in the United States switched just ONE regular bulb to a CFL or LED bulb it would be equivalent to removing 1 million cars from the road!”
And that link brings you to another “50 Ways to Help”!
I note the above, fully cognizant of the larger forces preventing meaningful change. But we as individuals, making changes in our own lives and insisting on changes from those larger forces, can follow the lead of young people worldwide. In so doing, we can help them ensure their future on Planet Earth.
I thank blogger Judy Dykstra-Brown at lifelessons, who first posted the winning video on her site.
