Restoring our ECO systems
All across the world, people are making efforts to restore and protect the ecosystem they are part of.
Video reporters of the initiative What if we change followed the work of local communities and organizations in India, Bolivia, Mali and Bonaire for two years. This documentary is compiled from over 1000 video stories they produced for the interactive platform http://whatifwechange.org. It shows both the challenges AND the solutions when it comes to offering nearly 7 billion people a healthy life on earth. 

Environmental filmmaker John D. Liu offers reflections on the benefits of ecosystem restoration for people and planet.

Rudolf Steiner on the difference between a machine and an organism:

"What is essential in the machine is only the interaction of its parts. The unifying principle that governs that interaction does not exist in the object itself but outside it as a plan in the head of its builder. Only the most extreme shortsightedness can deny that the difference between an organism and a mechanism is precisely the fact that in a machine the determining principle governing the interrelationship of its parts is external (and abstract), whereas in an organism it assumes a real existence in the object itself. Thus, the sense—perceptible conditions of an organism do not appear merely to follow one from another, but are governed by an inner principle that is imperceptible to the senses. In this sense this principle is no more perceptible to the senses than the plan in the builder's head, which is also present only to the mind. Essentially, it is such a plan, except that it has entered the organism's inner being and affects it directly, not through a third party, the builder."
