We live in a planet with limited resources. And the exploitation of them is compromising the progress, or even existence, of future generations. Up to now, ignoring the problem has been the easy solution, but when the consequences come to light, it is irresponsible not to question what has brought us here. The demand for resources is still growing (food demand will go up 70% and energy requirements will double in 40 years). However, we must stop and correct if possible the pr...

You know how in those alien invasion movies like "transformers" how aliens can just create a new home on another planet when their own planet is dying out? Well I wish I could say the same for us. We can't just up and go to Mars and set camp there and act like Earth never existed. As much as I hate to admit, we only have this one Earth, this one home. And if it crumbles, so will we. What we are doing right now is creating a world that will not save us. We are robbing tomor...

I first set foot in Nairobi, the capital city of Kenya, in 2008 when I came to begin my college education. Life in the city was quite different from what I was used to in the village. For me, a city was supposed to be a better place than my village but then the reality on the ground was opposite. Heavy human and vehicle traffic pissed me off; but the worst was to come from garbage that lay along the roads and the estates. When the rain fell, the wastage would block the drainage s...

Reported by Cadmus Atake, Zaid Shopeju and Oluwafunmilayo Oyatogun It is commonly said that what a man can do, a woman can do better, but in the case of Ogoni the women seem to have been relegated to the back burner for too long. Ogoniland has become the poster child for environmental problems in Nigeria, especially as a result of unscrupulous extraction activities of multinational corporations. So, even though the women of Ogoni were well aware of the problems surrounding...

SO THERE’S CLIMATE CHANGE, WHAT NEXT? When I ask people questions regarding climate change I receive many answers; but most of them go along these lines: "it is God who made the Earth he obviously has a plan," or "the earth is probably just changing to prepare us for evolution". Whatever the case Earth is our home and it is our responsibility to maintain it. When dealing with a problem we often need to first identify the problem; in this case the problem is climate change. Climate...

Participating in the Climate Mapping Exercise was both an amazing and educative experience for me. Taking a walk within the community to capture stories and reports for the digital map made me notice many environmental issues that I had not paid attention to previously. Before receiving the participation confirmation email I imagined that I would work together with other selected participants (as a team). Little did I know that the exercise would take me to a path that I had to...

Photovoice is a form of participatory learning and action (PLA). It involves using media technology to see local challenges, strengths and vision for the future through the perspectives of local communities who understand their own context the best. Photovoice methods have three main goals: 1. to enable people to record and reflect their community's strengths and concerns; 2. to promote critical dialogue and knowledge about personal and community issues through large...

Tomorrow, an important event is taking place in New York City – one with repercussions far beyond the tiny island of Manhattan. Tomorrow, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon will host the 2014 Climate Summit, with an important goal – to get everyone behind the plan to address climate change and the effects it will have on us all. But these effects are likely to impact some groups of people more than others – and children and young people are key among them. Not...
