The crazy things people do: Howland Island

This must be the very first video I ever made, an all-analog tale from an expedition to Howland Islands, in the middle of the Pacific, back in 1993.

The video is a capture of the magical moments, with music which inspired me at that time.
Sit back, relax, and imagine how it feels like, to travel to the middle of no-where...

If you are interested, here is another video from the same expedition. Years ago, I also wrote a short story of my adventures on Howland Island.
For the handful of you reading Dutch, I also published the full story of my first expeditions.

Empower youth by highlighting their projects

In the recent years, I had the opportunity to help highlighting the work young people do, throwing the spotlight on their projects and success stories, their struggles and challenges.

I firmly believe that putting young people on a platform, enabling them to bring their message, automatically empowers them, their causes and youth in general. It not only gives the individual a well-deserved chance to show their project, but each of those projects reminds the world that young people *are* the future deserving our attention, support, guidance, mentoring and funding.

And the youth have the drive, the ingenuity, the geniality and true spirit to make a change.

I was privileged to be part of the group giving that spotlight to people like Joseph Macharia from Kenya or Joseph Otim from Uganda just a few weeks ago.

It is in that spirit you should watch the video from Kelvin Doe, a fifteen year old from Sierra Leone, who picks parts from trash, to make his own radio station - including its mini-generator - in Sierra Leone.
I invite you to support "Innovate Salone" with similar initiatives.

Thanks to Kay Chapman for the tip on the video..

Climate scientists become climate models

Kickstarter recently featured a funding request for an interesting project by Rebecca Fowler and Francesco Fiondella. The project wants to make a 2014 calendar with "the hottest climate science", and the scientists -the people- behind it.

The photos in the calendar not only highlights the climate change issues in an interesting and provocative way, but also combines it with the science behind it.

I wish I would have come up with that idea! :-)
