Idea #4: Listen to Severn - and write your own plea!

Hard to believe we're coming up to Rio+20! It was at the Rio Earth Summit in 1992 that a 12-year-old Severn Suzuki, daughter of the famous environmentalist Dr. Suzuki, made a heartfelt plea for the environment... silencing world leaders for 7 minutes. This Earth Day, for a powerful exercise, watch and discuss Severn's speech at the UN Earth Summit in Rio. Consider having your students write their own heartfelt pleas to world leaders or their local officials. Click here for Severn Suzuki's famous speech.
"If you don't know how to fix it, please stop breaking it." -Severn Suzuki, Rio Earth Summit 1992
