In this Carolyn Raffensperger speech, the executive director of the Science and Environmental Health Network explores the changes that need to take place in order to create a sustainable world.
Raffensperger discusses the application of the precautionary principle, a concept that proposes taking precaution in the face of scientific uncertainty, such as the modern concerns around global warming and a fear of total depletion of natural resources. The precautionary concept has already been applied to international treaties and laws that focus on environmental concerns. Raffensperger's vision is for us all to become great ancestors by encouraging healthy lifestyles and conscious living, comparing the cause even to a civil rights movement for future generations.
