Those Damn Youngsters Won’t Shut Up About Climate Change. That’s A Good Thing.
Last week, regular CleanTechnica reader Thijs Buelens contacted me to ask if I was aware of the climate change protests taking place in Europe recently, most of them led by young people. (Full disclosure: Anyone born after the Eisenhower administration is a young person from my perspective.) He sent along some links to local news reports to educate me about what is going on across the Atlantic. So I bookmarked them and read them all over the weekend. I’m glad I did.

“Villages preserve culture: dress, food and dance are a few examples. As villages grow in population and turn into towns, local cafes make way for large American chains. Handmade leather sandals are discarded for a pair of Western sneakers.
Due to its small size, a village fosters a tight-knit sense of community. Justpeace.org explains the meaning of the African proverb, “It takes a village,” by stating that a sense of community is critical to maintaining a healthy society.
Village members hold a wealth of information regarding their heritage: they know about the ancient traditions, methods of production and the resources of the land. When villages become dispersed or exterminated in times of war, this anthropological knowledge disappears.
Large cities are not as conducive to growing and producing foods such as fruits and vegetables. Villages, on the other hand, usually have ample amounts of land and other resources necessary for growing conditions.” The Importance of Villages by Catherine Capozzi
