New Video on Overshoot

As part of its Awakening the Dreamer, Changing the Dream symposium, the Pachamama Alliance has created a new video which explains the concept of ecological overshoot in interviews with Susan Burns and Mathis Wackernagel.


The Pachamama Alliance, which began as a partnership between indigenous people from Ecuador and a group of North Americans committed to ending deforestation, has grown to an international movement to reinvision the values that drive modern society.

This video is great!! My daughter (10yrs) saw a multimediashow about the Ecological Footprint and was impressed. Since then she has been very interested in this topic and would like to make a presentation in school. Where do I get such information in German for 10 year old kids?
All the best and keep it up!!
