Perhaps One Solution

Came across this video, once again from one of my wonderful students, about human beings naturally being empathic creatures. Perhaps by revitalizing our natural empathic tendencies to extend to other species and the earth, we can move more quickly to reduce our impacts on the climate. The question is, how? One of the most important ways, I believe, is to reinvigorate the public sphere through dialogue, we have to start talking about what is important to us, as humans, to our community and for our children’s future.  How do we make it a national dialogue?

The other thing I love about this video is the animation, how the arts came in, and for some reason, I paid far more attention than if it was just a person speaking, lots of stuff here for educators.
