Highlights of the Event
Part 1: This beautiful world we inherited: will we pass it on when we are gone?
Part 2: Pollution, climate change, species extinction, food shortages: Is that the kind of world we want to leave behind?
Part 3: We need to learn to CARE more for our world. It’s in our hands: choices we make now determine Earth’s future.
Part 4: The Himalayas: source of water for a fifth of the world’s people. Climate change is now bringing drought and flood to the region. Long-term water shortages loom.
Part 5: Extinction is forever. Will we be the last generation to see truely wild animals?
Part 6: The oceans are a vast and complex engine driving climate, oxygen levels and feeding hundreds of millions of people. We abuse them at our peril.
Part 7: We farmers and fishermen are going to need all the support you can give us if we are to feed you.
Part 8: Everyone can help fight climate change and provide habitat for wildlife by planting trees and protecting forests.
Part 9: The Butterfly Effect: everything is interconnected. Your individual actions effect the whole.
Part 10: Final part of the performance: It is unjust to expect Earth’s indiginous peoples, who are evicted from their forests in the name of ’conservation’, whose rivers are dammed for hydo power and whose lands are taken for biofuel crops, to pay the price for our need to reduce our carbon emissions.
