Keep giving the Earth a voice. Let’s shape 2016 together

2015 was a difficult and complicated year, but also an inspiring one. We have collected the social and environmental sustainability news stories that most impressed us and that were most shared by you.

Stories must be told, whether they’re negative or positive. Our effort has been to give voice to the Earth and its silent breath, like Rachel Carson would have said. Whether it is being safeguarded or exploited, we take care in relating its state of health because it is our only home, the place that has brought us together and kept us unified. Women and men in harmony with each other and nature. In this video we have collected the most important news stories of 2015, those that got our hearts racing, moved, excited and disturbed us.

 

2015 was a difficult and complicated year, but it was also an inspiring one that brought us much cause for celebration….

Like all selections or rankings this video isn’t able to cover everything that is important. It doesn’t mention the refugee crisis, the November attacks in Paris, nor police brutality in the United States. However, these are all topics we have amply covered on the LifeGate website over the course of the year. There are multiple reasons for not including them in the video. Some topics didn’t arise and didn’t reach their conclusion in 2015. In any case, our selection isn’t meant to exclude or reshape other news stories in any way but rather give added visibility to those that are most consonant with our values.
