Small village is making electricity from plastic bowls
Another inspiring idea in action.

This looks like a great alternative to a traditional caravan or a temporary home for people displaced by floods, war etc but I couldn't imagine living in such a small space long term.

Thanks for sharing this Bawo, aren't her pastels realistic? I think art is so important in helping people to understand and connect with what is happening to our climate. I think many people are turned off by gloomy news stories about impending disaster and their eyes glaze over when presented with too many facts and numbers but art can cut through that to reach people on an emotional level.

This is a typical breakfast here: the mango is from our garden, the banana from a friend's garden, the tangerine and pineapple were grown within a few miles, the coffee is from our sister island, Trinidad, and the mat is made from Tobago bamboo and coconut. Only the fig (Turkey), dates (California) fork and crockery were imported!

To Liz Sutton - I think everybody should be made to pay the true cost of their flights, including indirect costs such as emissions.
