Sustainability Starts at the Village Level: Willie Smits at TEDxMidwest

Rainforest conservationist Willie Smits is pioneering ways to restore rainforests devastated by agriculture and mining growth. His approach expands economic options for local human populations beyond short-term harvesting and creates an economically sustainable solution. His novel approach focuses on tapping the unique assets of the rainforest itself.In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
