"How to Save the Earth" is a series of six television programmes that go beyond the usual 'doom and gloom' about the state of the Earth today. By concentrating on the life and work of twelve 'green warriors', each programme demonstrates that answers exist to the problems we now face.

Description
Our post-War obsession with economic growth at all costs has generated many benefits for a small proportion of humankind. But the costs are escalating all the time: to our communities, to the Earth's life-support systems, and to the human spirit. Directly challenging the 'growthist' consensus is an essential responsibility of the modern Environment Movement. Jorunn Eikjok is a researcher at the Nordic Sami Institute in Norway. Since the early 1980's, she has taken an active part in the Sami political and cultural movement. The world first became aware of Lois Gibbs when she spearheaded a campaign in the late 1970's to save her neighbourhood from a leaking chemical dump at Love Canal near Niagara Falls.
