The stories we tell have the power to help climate change, Bahar Dutt tells from her personal life experience. We all harness the power of story telling in Climate Change.
Winner of the Green Oscar in 2006, Bahar Dutt has reported on some of the biggest environment stories of our time. Known for the celebrated TV Series- Saving the Ganga (CNN-IBN), Dutt spent a decade with snake charmers across India on a community conservation project on a sustainable livelihoods project. Her environment investigations led to the shutdown of an illegal shopping mall on the river bed of the Yamuna, an illegal mine in Goa that was operating on forest land and helped halt the destruction of the wetlands that were home to the Sarus cranes in Uttar Pradesh. In this TEDx Talk, Bahaar talks about how environment stories often become political stories and the immense power of storytelling in initiating action towards protecting the environment.
