Hi, I’m Alec, a 12 year old 6th grader from the Willow School in Gladstone, New Jersey. I made this film to highlight the creativity and ingenuity of the child’s mind. It is through the innovation and positive energy of children that solutions to Global Climate Change can be found. I created the soundtrack to this film to illuminate the complexity of the global crisis, juxtaposed to the ease of which children think. The underlying chords in the song are identical to the ones in “Twinkle, Twinkle,” yet the harmonies and accompaniments form complex patterns and groupings quite apart from the simple melody. Two and a half billion children will prevail.
This is a video about what it can look like if we succeed in making our lives more sustainable by reducing the impact of climate change through changing our habits around food. We show how the future could look like if we start to change today. If we start to eat more local and seasonal food and less meat we will reduce greenhouse gas emissions significantly. In addition to this we believe that we need to pay more attention to nutrient loops in the future. In the urban gardens of the future there is a need for nutrients and by using local compost it is possible to create a local nutrient loop that is energy efficient and thus emits less greenhouse gases. As well as using something that would otherwise be wasted, we also reduce the use for artificial fertilizers, which means less energy usage and less greenhouse gas emissions. But there will be trade-offs as well. We cannot eat as much meat as we might want to since it will have to be
