Severn Suzuki speaking at UN Earth Summit 1992

Raised in Vancouver and Toronto, Severn Cullis-Suzuki has been camping and hiking all her life. When she was 9 she started the Environmental Children's Organization (ECO), a small group of children committed to learning and teaching other kids about environmental issues. They were successful in many projects before 1992, when they raised enough money to go to the UN's Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro. Their aim was to remind the decision-makers of who their actions or inactions would ultimately affect. The goal was reached when 12 yr old Severn closed a Plenary Session with a powerful speech that received a standing ovation.

A lot has changed since that speech... it got even worse. I admire that
lady for keeping up the fight until today (google for "Severn Suzuki" if
you want to know what her fight looks like today), especially because I
have already given up on that fight: in my opinion theres no more hope for
humankind. We´re doomed as greedy motherfuckers, who refuse to foresee the
catastrophic consequences of our own actions.

You are a brave and courageous young lady and having heard this speech more
than once makes me realize that you are right about everything you talked
about. I pray that the results from your speech will change the world. And
the only way to change the world is for the people in the world to listen
and let God open their hearts freely to give back.

Maybe they might have disliked because of the video quality, who knows?
This world is being driven by inifinte greed, but as we all know, this is a
finite world. How are the systems implemented today supposed to work at
all? Consumption and depletion is left unchecked, heck, encouraged, even.
And then what? Looking for sustainable alternatives? Don't do it in the
first place!

Автор Gandala Pingala ( назад)
No amount of political tinkering in the way of reform is going to improve
our quality of life. If we do not have the teachings of equality, serving,
sharing, and giving unconditionally instilled in our lives. Otherwise there
is always going to be the people that have far too much for their needs,
and the people that have very little or nothing at all. Also we have
blindly given the control of our lives to a select few in power. This needs
to change, it is they who are creating this imbalance.

Автор Gandala Pingala ( назад)
You are an inspiration for the majority of us who are looking for great
changes in the way we live. Thank you. The paradigm shift we need is for a
more simple way of life with the emphases on sharing and giving and not
being selfish and always taking. The reason for all these conflicts is that
we have become too impersonal with not a lot of true compassion for others.

Автор Dana V. ( назад)
To ALL who "disliked" this video. You are part of the reason WHY our world
is so f-ed up. You are twisted, sick human beings and are the most pathetic
example of humanity! (not to mention rationality). This girl was more
eloquent and profound in what she said more than most educated adults
today. Wow! Mind blowing. Yes, our nation (our world) is in BIG trouble and
I believe it is more spiritual than anything. God help us all!

In “Occupying Chairlifts” a simple rule tweak on inheritance ends up
changing the direction and purpose of modern human life! Here’s a fair way
to transition forward to where we’re rewarded for cooperating and creating
instead of competing and conquering. It's something specific we can demand.
If this isnt the best answer, at least we’re thinking about what might be.
Are we really just this close to having it work right? Oh yeah, it's a Ski
movie! “Occupying Chairlifts” on Youtube!

leaders from the four corners of the world listen, plan, agree!! and act
with inention forcing america, asia, austrailia, china and other major
polluters and industries to change their ways or force massive fines
fueling the campaign more! 21 years later, not much has happened

That is that, what TuPac Shakur meant ! He rapped "Changes" over 10 Years
ago! Nothing has been changed ! -There are over 10.000 Fans of 2Pac who are
knowing what he has been rapped about. But absolutely nothing has CHANGED -
we even only listening to his songs but we did not moved anything... Also
Michael Jackson sang about it "Heal the World" or "They don't care about
us" ! These Singers aren't alive! So what will the future tell us? Why
nothing has been changed?...
