        • Beyond Boarding's Fracked Tea Tour


          from BeyondBoarding Added 257 0 0

          This past Sunday started nice and early for some of the Beyond Boarding crew. Out of bed by 6:30, kettle on the stove by 7:00, serving free “Fracked Tea” by 7:30. First stop, the sea wall in West Vancouver to catch the early risers, then across the bridge en route for Downtown Vancouver to catch the daytime foot traffic. “Fracked Tea? That sounds political” was the first reaction of the day. “Well, yes it is” we responded. The purpose of serving this tea was to start raising awareness about the BC provincial governments plans to fast track expansion of the LNG industry. This expansion is to create an export market, not to meet domestic energy needs. Beyond Boarding just spent 8 months travelling around BC and Northern Alberta and saw first hand some of the negative affects fracking can have on land, air, water and communities. Now is the time to stand up and protect our planet, not to build an infrastructure that will drastically increase our provinces contribution to its destruction.

          • Beyond Boarding Webisode # 2


            from Lewis Muirhead Added 445 0 0

            We've been spending a lot of time in La Belen, Iquitos, and hearing more and more stories from the locals. Some of them are funny anecdotes that we can all smile about, some are inspiring and make us optimistic about this community's future. Others are heavy, and remind us of the hardships that people here face every day. We were particularly moved by this woman's story - it showed us explicitly the effect that a culture shaped by poverty has on its people. We've been seeing that when people struggle every day to provide their families with basic necessities, they can ignore or take advantage of the needs and weaknesses of their neighbours. This woman was robbed during the recent floods when she was forced to abandon her home. She told us how hard it is for her to cope with her living situation, and explained to us some of the challenges inherent to caring for a family in a community divided by poverty. Upon arriving in Iquitos, our hosts at La Restinga (the community development organization we're working with here) explained to us that one of the biggest hurdles in developing impoverished areas is the fact that people tend to focus on their own needs, which results in places like La Belen lacking a strong sense of community. The workers at La Restinga believe that moving past poverty requires an atmosphere where people look out for each other, taking pride in and caring for their communities. All of La Restinga's projects around Iquitos create opportunities for communities to work together; they are designed to create bonds between the people they help, and promote the kind of community spirit that allows for effective development work. We've learned that projects like the floating garden are as much about getting people together as they are about creating a local sustainable foodsource. Seeing this approach has given us a new perspective on our project in Peru, and on development work in general. We're seeing the importance of solidarity in communities and hearing the heartbreaking stories of those who have been stepped over in its absence. This woman's story would be a different one if she were part of a strong social network, and we hope that the development work we're part of here helps provide that network for the future generations of La Belen.

                      from BeyondBoarding Added 28 1 0

                      An independent documentary that blends the rush of snowboarding and surfing with powerful story telling of the affects fossil fuel expansion is already having in northern communities. The adventure leads the crew to communities on the front lines of resource extraction, from the Alberta tar sands; Canada’s largest growing greenhouse gas emitter, to a front line Indigenous blockade in the Tl’abāne, an area also commonly known as the Sacred Headwaters. From mechanical mishaps, adventures, new teachings and perseverance the crew blends unique interviews with farmers, students, Indigenous leaders, politicians, and oil/gas workers to present the often rarely heard voices and concerns of those involved in these industries. Along the way, the crew also spend time with the people who, using alternative and renewable energy sources, lead lifestyles that present solutions. All in all, Northern Grease tells a story of young snowboarders and surfers learning the real social and environmental impacts of resource extraction. Through humor, adventure and an evolving critical perspective, Northern Grease depicts the often untold stories of those on the front lines of development.
