Good News-kalendern är min alldeles egna adventskalender. En bortförklaring för att frossa i en rejält inspirerande lösning/genombrott/pionjär per dag – hela vägen fram till jul! Klicka på luckan för att öppna:
Raised in Vancouver and Toronto, Severn Cullis-Suzuki has been camping and hiking all her life. When she was 9 she started the Environmental Children’s Organization (ECO), a small group of children committed to learning and teaching other kids about environmental issues. They were successful in many projects before 1992, when they raised enough money to go to the UN’s Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro. Their aim was to remind the decision-makers of who their actions or inactions would ultimately affect. The goal was reached when 12 yr old Severn closed a Plenary Session with a powerful speech that received a standing ovation.
There´s nothing like truly committed individuals who dare to say the truth. Severn Suzuki is also today, twenty years after the RIO Summit, still fighting for a sustainable future.
