If You Don’t Know How to Fix It, Stop Breaking It

Severn Suzuki, known as the ‘girl who silenced the world for 6 minutes’, was 12 years old when she spoke at the UN Earth Summit in 1992. She was 9 when her and her friends started the Environmental Children’s Organization (ECO), a group committed to learning and teaching other kids about environmental issues. It’s 20 years later and while President Obama wasn’t present at the Summit today, she was. It’s 20 years later and we’re still employing the same values. It’s 20 years later and this video has over 21,000,000 views on YouTube. Why? Well as Suzuki said in this morning’s NPR interview, ‘the world is still hungry to hear the truth.’
