Annie Leonard, the mover, shaker, and activist maker, creator of "The Story of Stuff" (aka: S'O'S) is at it again, this time in her "Season 2" video: "The Story of Change." In this one, not only is she highlighting the importance of living green, but that is only a mere starting place. She discusses that big changes come in becoming active... and activists. She puts forth a 3-part solution plan as to what we all can do to get to the heart of the problems... whatever "Big Idea" that might be. As she states, "trying to live eco-perfectly is like trying to swim upstream while the current is pushing us all the other way."
Teachers: Check out the S'o'S website for Curricular resources.
Other S'o'S adorers: Check out past GTG commentary on the subject!
As Annie proposes...it's time to exercise our citizens muscles!!
What kind of change maker are you?
