Cape Town is currently suffering from a water crisis due to a number of different factors. The residents are having to cut their daily water usage down to a limit of 50 litres per day per person and on the most part are collectively achieving this. The management of this crisis however is critical to the success of this wonderful city.
Thank you to Ray De Vries for the voiceover and insight in to the current situation in Cape Town. Ray is one of the most fascinating people I have met and is part of the solution to future water shortages. See more here - airwater.co.za

The UK In 100 Seconds - 2 minutes
Friends of the Earth is campaigning to make more space for nature everywhere for the benefit of people and wildlife. This means bringing nature to life in towns, cities and where we live, learn and work, not just consigning it to special reserves. 100 Seconds asks some searching questions. How much space is there for nature in the UK? How do we use the land? Look at it from the air and you find some surprising answers. Each second of the film equates to 1% of what the country looks like from the air. One of the most shocking things, is going through literally hundreds of miles of crops, you realise that half of all the cereal crops you see in the countryside are fed to livestock. What else could we do with that land?

Waterway Jay - 7 minutes
In 2017, Jay Gustafson launched Paddle for Progress, a two-year, 4,300-mile personal journey in response to Governor Dayton's call for water action. Jay's mission to reconnect humanity with one of our most precious resources took him to the most remote and least visited corners of Minnesota, as well as through nearly every major community in the state. Alone in the wilderness, Jay reminds us how we are all linked to water, one of the most powerful elements on earth that is in a constant state of danger. His passion for paddling and call to something greater than himself leads us down water trails into our own spirit's journey and connection with the earth. Waterway Jay is the story of this one man's journey to save water, and how we are connected to it all.
