The Next Eco-Warriors
By

Rating
These are the future leaders of the green movement who are as unique as nature itself. They are young people from around the world who are shifting minds, policies and the axes of old tyrannies. They are optimists, an inclusive, global movement tackling issues of energy use, overfishing, overconsumption, waste management, the disappearance of indigenous cultures and rainforests and other urgent environmental/social concerns with a sense of passion and possibility. The faces of this movement include people like Eriel Deranger, a Dene native who battles the Canadian tar sands by embarrassing the banks that provide funding. Junichi Sato, a Japanese campaigner who risks imprisonment to end whaling. Elizabeth Redmond, an American who is reinventing renewable technology by using our feet for power. Gene Hashmi, an ex-businessman from India who keeps civil disobedience alive. And Tamara Herman, an eco-journalist from Mexico, who attempts to expose destructive mining operations. Together they show that anyone can be an eco-warrior if they use their talents for change. Also included: Gene Hashmi, climate campaigner for Greenpeace India and Wen Bo, founder of Greenpeace China; Hannah Fraser, dolphin activist featured in The Cove; Peter Hammarstedt and Benjamin Potts of Sea Shepherd fame and co-stars of Whale Wars TV show; Andy Ridley, executive director of Earth Hour; Will Potter, founder of www.GreenIsTheNewRed.com; Allana Beltran of the Tasmania forest blockade; Subhashni Raj, Fiji activist; Jamie Henn, co-founder of 350.org; Tanya Fields, urban farmer (NYC).
