I just watched Al Gore's climate change documentary which came out in the year 2006 : 'An Inconvenient Truth'. I'd been meaning to watch it for a while but what sparked my memory was watching a lecture by John Hardy on TED (check out previous post) about a Green School in Bali (Watch the lecture here).
The Green School is designed to teach children about the importance of the environment through interacting with the environment when learning. The children have essential classes such as math, reading, writing etc. but they also have Green classes and Creative Arts classes. The school's motto is: "Empowering global citizens and green innovators who are inspired to take responsibility for the sustainability of the world" and this is extremely important for the future of our planet. Al Gore's documentary is quite eye opening, not only for all those global warming sceptics out there - but even for those of us who are aware of the risks of increased CO2 emissions! After watching this documentary (and the talk by John Hardy) I seriously have decided to put fighting for environmental sustainability and fighting against climate change amongst my top priorities.
Recommended for everyone.
