There are many serious impacts currently taking place on the natural environment, largely as a result if human activities. The list includes climate change, rampant development in environmentally-sensitive areas, pollution of all kinds and abuse of virtually every ecosystem on earth at some level or another. Taken together, these impacts are already taking a toll on human beings, both at individual and societal level; in fact, the rising prices of food, escalating energy costs and reducing natural resources such as water and fossil fuels, are leading to revolutions great and small across the world.
Faced with these challenges, it’s easy feel overwhelmed. But, here at Urban Eco Life, we’ve been working on encouraging individuals and businesses to embrace solutions and thereby change the world. The old adage of ‘how do you eat an elephant; one bite at a time’ applies here. Every person making even a small difference adds up and individuals who persist and pursue these avenues are highly likely to change the world. With this in mind, Urban Eco Life has planned the first of what we hope will be several future film festivals focusing on solutions to the problems that face humanity in the age dubbed the Anthropocene. We aim to provide inspiration, hope, information, networking opportunities and ideas for workable solutions.
