          There is a plan to build the nations' largest incinerator less than a mile away from our schools here in Baltimore. Our community already has the most air pollution in Maryland and our lives are cut short because of where we were born. We learned that Baltimore City Public Schools are in a contract to buy energy from the incinerator. On Tuesday, May 27th we went to the school board meeting to let them know that the incinerator is failed development and that we need to work together to stop it. The health of our community needs to be put first, we demand Fair Development! We wrote this song to send the message that we can stand up and make a choice! Free Your Voice Anthem Written and performed by Double Impact; Audrey and Leah Rozier Verse 1: 18 year old girl living in a world where no one cares about the safety of this girl I'm disgusted, I can't believe we trusted the world but it's not too late to be adjusted Money money money that seems to be the anthem Destroying the world and always taking it for granted No more green, only buildings and all that I can see is landfills and We have our rights according to the amendments But why do we feel like we've been so resented Ignored, shoved to the side where opinions don't matter where opinions only die It's time to stand up, let our voices be heard Incinerator move cause you're not preferred It's about that time, to make the choice Imma stand up and free my voice Chorus: It'll all get better, we can change the world And it starts with music, get your message heard You've gotta free your voice, from all the boys to the girls It'll all get better, we can change the world Verse 2: This life starts with the air that we breathe And trying to succeed Not the air that we need The eye is deceived But with all this pollution Instead of giving does all of the killing How many do we need Until the smoke clogs up and we can't feel our chest With everyone competitive Just worried bout the money When you think opportunity The air quality will help and keep you livin It's like good deeds are forbidden And everyone is looking to take Not knowing that the bad polluted air If the incinerator takes away a breath Until there is nothing thats left And the ones who don't catch the symptoms Are considered blessed It time for change Before our planet gets destroyed Before death, is something we cannot avoid The time is now before we don't have a choice So let's stand tall together, and free our voice

                A short film on London's main drainage. Starting with Bazalgette's construction of London's embankment and ending with green roofs in The City, this film explores how technical knowledge shapes our cities and creates habits of resource consumption that prove hard to break. The narrative is driven by interviews with three UCL academics who bring historical, engineering and anthropological insights to the study of urban infrastructure. The film was shot on locations built for the Victorian sewage system including Embankment Park and Abbey Mills Pump House. Part of the film was shot on the green roof of Eversheds' London HQ. The film uses archive images from The Wellcome Library and music by Air Tone. Some of the points raised: The challenge of implementing sustainable futures for cities Sustainable urban drainage systems Shifting cities between linear and circular metabolisms The Thames TIdeway Tunnel (Super sewer)

                      Delhi Waste Wars An EJOLT Video. Directed by Leah Temper and edited by Siobhan McKeown (e:d.i.t) A battle is brewing in Delhi, India over access and control to garbage. For decades, informal wastepickers and recyclers have turned garbage into cash. They cost the government and taxpayer nothing, yet they significantly reduce the waste sent to already overflowing landfills, improve recycling rates and “cooling the earth” by reducing carbon emissions. But recent government plans to privatize trash collection have put the livelihoods of the wastepickers under threat. Meanwhile, new plans to build incinerators funded by carbon credits mean the resources the recyclers depend on may soon go up in smoke. This documentary takes a street-eye view, charting the wastepickers´ struggle for their rights and recognition, and gaining a local perspective on how to create a truly sustainable waste management system in one of the world´s biggest and most densely populated cities.
