Description

No matter who you are, where you are, do what you can, no matter how small, because collectively it will make a difference. These are the words the Nobel peace prize winner, the first African woman to have been awarded this accolade said in a convention hosted by Botanic Gardens Conservation International at the Royal Geographical Society. She used the story of a humming bird trying to save a forest consumed by fire to illustrate the power of action. We found this clip from dirt! The movie by Bill Benenson and Gene Rosow on YouTube, take a look.
