Bay Johnson is a middle school consultant. Each week he features a Forces of Nature video
that he feels offers inspiration and wisdom, especially for those in his generation so that they may become involved in any aspect of the environmental movement.
The “Forces of Nature: Environmental Elders Speak” video library project was created by the Resource Renewal Institute. The Elders include citizen activists and retired environmental professionals, professors, scientists and natural resource managers from all over the world.
Their respective work covers problems and possible solutions to the entire range of environmental topics.
For those studying environmental management, history or activism, a number of these elders’ stories serve as instructive case studies for land deal negotiation, lobbying and legislation, natural resource management and environmentally related public health issues.
This collection of interviews are an important contribution to the history of the environmental movement and can be used as a tool to inspire current and future generations to act.
