Talk from the Environmental Childrens Organisation

click here to here watch Severn Cullis Suzuki of ECO - Environmental Children's Organisation. In 1992 Severn, along with 5 friends, funded themselves to attend a UN Earth Summit in Rio de Janiero conference and present delegates with a slightly different perspective to environmental issues. These words spoken in 1992 are not however out of date, they are perhaps, more relevant and poignant than ever. Many thanks to Albert Harris for sending it on.
Here's an update on Severn from Wikipedia:

Cullis-Suzuki graduated from Yale University in 2002 with a B.Sc. in ecology and evolutionary biology. After Yale, Cullis-Suzuki spent two years traveling. Cullis-Suzuki co-hosted Suzuki's Nature Quest, a children's television series that aired on the Discovery Channel in 2002. In early 2002, she helped launch an Internet-based think tank called The Skyfish Project. Kofi Annan's Special Advisory Panel, she and members of the Skyfish Project brought their first project, a pledge called the "Recognition of Responsibility", to the World Summit on Sustainable Development in Johannesburg in August 2002
