Heureux de te revoir! Connecte-toi pour agir. Pas encore un Global Citizen? Par Natalie Prolman. Prince Ea, activist and inspirational spoken word artist, has done it again.
Just in time for Earth Day, he has launched one of the most powerful videos I have ever seen about mitigating climate change -- in the first 48 hours, it already has over 29 million views. This apology to future generations for the harm we have caused our planet has an incredibly profound and poignant message that we should all pay attention to.
The purpose of the video is to raise awareness about the alarming rates of deforestation and the reckless destruction of our environment for which we are ALL responsible. It offers a tangible way for the general public to take direct action to combat climate change through crowd-funding the protection of threatened forests. Learn more here. He also visited some of the pioneering forest conservation projects that were developed by Wildlife Works. They demonstrate a successful and innovative way to stop deforestation by rewarding forest communities who conserve their forests.
The Wildlife Works projects that Prince Ea visited represent two of twelve forest conservation projects participating in the new Stand for Trees campaign. I had the honor of interviewing Prince Ea earlier this week to get his perspective on this incredible video and the powerful message he is sending to the world:. What was your inspiration to do a video on Climate Change and the role of forests?
Prince Ea: When Wildlife Works reached out to me, and told me what was going on, I did research and dove into the literature. What I found was some very shocking information that truly inspired me to want to inform the masses about this subject. You know, there are very detrimental processes that are reaching a tipping point and people need to be made aware, so that was the initial inspiration. I just felt like I wanted to be a voice. As you were researching information about the looming catastrophic effects of climate change, what facts stood out and shocked you the most?
Another salient point was, the destruction of the trees in and of itself. THIS is the issue. I want people to know and learn about environmental responsibility, I want people to change their relationship to the environment. And to really just change our hearts. Prince Ea: I want people to become aware, simply put.
It was a piece to spread awareness and to get people involved. To actively take steps to stop the destruction of the forests. So that we can actually bring mainstream attention to the issue. Can you tell me about your journey, what it was like to see deforestation first hand and how forest communities are protecting their forests for the benefit of all of humanity and biodiversity?
What I did see was, innovation. For Wildlife Works to essentially make trees more valuable alive than dead, to provide that incentive is great. And we need to take more steps in that direction. My journey was incredible and I had a lot of great experiences. It was worldview altering, it was life changing. I made some friends, met a bunch of good people and it was truly a once in a lifetime experience. Prince Ea: I want people to not only see the video, but to take action.
I want people who see the video to take that extra step. But to also take that step internally. If every individual looks inside. We can change laws, we can do this and do that on the outside, and those are great and necessary. And in the song I talk about how the root is the people. And the root of the person is a human heart. We need more voices like yours in the world.
Protecting our environment is such a critically important task and I honestly believe that it is the single most important cause of our generation. As Prince Ea states in the video,. To betray nature is to betray us.
To save nature is to save us. Feminism, gay rights or any type of equality. On this Earth Day, I encourage you to stand up for our environment global citizens, and to Stand for Trees. To do your part to save our planet. Nothing matters more.

His spoken word pieces have been featured nationwide in various publications and talk shows including the Queen Latifah Show and the Blaze with Glenn Beck. Wildlife Works protects threatened forests, including the wildlife that inhabits them by providing forest communities with a transformative sustainable development path.
Since , the company has worked with communities in developing countries to help them manage their transition away from forest destruction towards sustainable economic development utilizing job creation as a core conservation strategy. Wildlife Works protects 1.

ANSWER: Our guides have their proverbial dancing shoes on each and every week starting around Wednesday at noon regardless of the guaranteed recreational release.

When we awoke this morning, we heard the faint deliberate and ominous sound of rain drops on our cotton roof. The rain had pattered all night, and now the whole country wept, the drops falling in the river, and on the alders, and in the pastures, and instead of any bow in the heavens, there was the trill of the tree-sparrow all the morning. The cheery faith of this little bird atoned for the silence of the whole woodland quire beside. When we first stepped abroad, a flock of sheep, led by their rams, came rushing down a ravine in our rear, with heedless haste and unreserved frisking, as if unobserved by man, from some higher pasture where they had spent the night, to taste the herbage by the river-side; but when their leaders caught sight of our white tent through the mist, struck with sudden astonishment, with their fore feet braced, they sustained the rushing torrent in their rear, and the whole flock stood stock-still, endeavoring to solve the mystery in their sheepish brains.

Activist Prince Ea Has A Message To Future Generations: Sorry

Tova, a simple name, a popular name, not quite suited to a young poetess. The same could be said of her body: too big. Admittedly, only slightly too big. On her hips and her shoulders an emphatic surplus layer, not without tenderness. The flesh of her arms too full. The strange thing is that the color of her trousers I remember very well; they were made of some coarse fabric, a little tattered, with a color somewhere between dark blue and dark gray.

As we were designing a brochure on the National Wild and Scenic Rivers System, we began to collect quotations. We asked people across the country to send us their favorite river quotes. The response was overwhelming. So many people asked for the full list when we were done, that we'd thought we'd share it here. Tom Splitt, a composer out of Colorado, has graciously offered us the use of an original composition, entitled "The River.
Over centuries people have learnt to live with rivers. They are part of our lives but over the past years this association has weakened. A collection of writings on different facets of rivers. Rivers, up close and personal.
