Who says a better world is impossible? | Science Matters | David Suzuki Foundation

This week I have seen twenty different videos. Videos that my students picked as examples of institutional change. Even though I asked for solution focussed pieces, many videos were problem focussed. This one, “Dear future generations Sorry” is a wonderful example. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eRLJscAlk1M). An excellent piece and with a clear and positive action for viewers.

Other videos explored corporate social responsibility especially in India. One bank, I think the Bank of India, has a CSR programme to put a million solar lights in homes in off the grid villages; another, a business man is installing home sized solar into homes. His programme includes maintenance, an essential feature lacking in earlier programmes of this type. Finance is through cooperative micro finace programmes.

All of this is encouraging but I am not convinced that it is enough. This piece from David Suzuki is more real and worth considering. We are moving forward and we have much to do.
