TALE OF URBAN RENEWAL

Each month, we choose an inspiring video that displays how one human beings action moves mountains. In this TED talk, MacArthur-winning activist Majora Carter details the actions that manifested environmental change in her hometown of New York's South Bronx. 

Watch Majora Carter's tale of urban renewal

On TED website:: "Majora Carter is a visionary voice in city planning who views urban renewal through an environmental lens. The South Bronx native draws a direct connection between ecological, economic and social degradation. Hence her motto: "Green the ghetto!"

With her inspired ideas and fierce persistence, Carter managed to bring the South Bronx its first open-waterfront park in 60 years, Hunts Point Riverside Park. Then she scored $1.25 million in federal funds for a greenway along the South Bronx waterfront, bringing the neighborhood open space, pedestrian and bike paths, and space for mixed-use economic development."  Read More>>

“When humans — after all, still a young species — drop our adolescent arrogance of thinking we know it all and learn from the wisdom in our planet's accumulated experience of living systems design, we too will mature as a species. When we learn to see the advantage of co-operation we will be able to give up competitive juvenile hostilities. It's not too late to remodel our engineered institutions into healthy, living systems.”
- Elisabet Sahtouris

"The earth does not belong to us we belong to the earth."
- Chief Seattle

"...beneath the skin, beyond the differing features and into the true heart of being, fundamentally, we are more alike, my friend, than we are unalike.
--Maya Angelou
