Hello Lovers of this Amazing World,
It is our time to change.
This post is for all the Parents and Children out there. I just watched this amazing TEDxYouth@Toronto 2011 featuring Rob Stewart. In the video he mentions that by 2048, we will have depleted our fisheries and destroyed our rainforests. We will have 9 billion people on the planet and no ability to feed them. Wow, that is scary stuff. That means when I am 84 and my children are in their 50’s and my future grandchildren are in their 20’s we will have no way to feed the world. Children that are babies today will be 35. Really, is this the legacy we want our children to be left with?
I think why this video really hit home is Rob is addressing a group of youth in Toronto and he speaks to issues in Canada. We have an obligation to get out and do things to make this world a better place.
- Watch this video
- Go out as FAMILY this weekend and go to the movies to watch Revolution. Rob Stewart’s latest movie is playing all major centres right now.
- Plan a homemade family meal and discuss over dinner three ways your family can make a difference
- Make a plan to get your three ideas into action.
Your meals in the future depend on your action.
Here is the trailer to Revolution:
May your ideas feed new habits that are one step closer to making a difference for our children and their children.
To family and a mother’s day gift that will make a lasting impact,
