Having only just finished revising and taking an exam in payments-for-ecosystems (PES), it’s great to see a tangible effect in the real world through this video rather than a simplified textbook version.
This PES scheme focuses on multiple different people throughout the African landscape, including farmers, fishers and teachers, all who are utilising such schemes to promote healthy living and biodiversity growth, all in the name of sustainability. Considering Africa is a highly degraded region and has only been showing signs of taking on board sustainable lifestyles in recent times, it’s inspiring to see the people in this video talk about it so enthusiastically as they do.
Combined with this is some brilliant photography (the cameras are insane quality, as you’d expect from Vimeo) and music, all of which make a wonderful 6-and-a-bit minute experience I highly urge you to check out. Might make you slightly more optimistic about society, ya never know.
