we were planting trees and the folks from the town came out for a demonstration. i don’t remember looking for anything to shoot, but i saw these children hugging and it was such a beautiful moment, i had to capture it. no clue where this was…somewhere outside of anse-á-pitres, haiti.

I originally posted this video on November 7, 2008, and was reminded of it a few days ago when the CEO of Fiat/Chrysler incorporated it into his speech at the University of Bologna.

Born and raised in Vancouver, Severn Suzuki has been working on environmental and social justice issues since kindergarten. At age 9, she and some friends started the Environmental Children’s Organization (ECO), a small group of children committed to learning and teaching other kids about environmental issues. They traveled to 1992’s UN Earth Summit, where 12 year-old Severn gave this powerful speech that deeply affected (and silenced) some of the most prominent world leaders. The speech had such an impact that she has become a frequent invitee to many UN conferences.
