Funny, honest vids that work (and don’t involve my generation)

There’s some terrific videos, vimeos and apps about how to get on with things and to repair our lovely torn Earth.


They often involve kids or folks in their 20s, 30s, not my generation.


My generation is the failed generation.  We had our chance but blew it.


Movies and vids with serious faced professors, ‘guru’s, ‘experts’ from universities – they simply don’t engage most people.

And serious documentaries with a point to make so big it obscurs the screen you’re looking at – if we’re honest we know that most people don’t watch them or be influenced by them; they just appeal to those who already are concerned about water and energy and soil abuses by our culture.


It seems humour, the honesty of kids, the desire a child has to have a go at doing something even if they might get it wrong does appeal to more people.


Here are some examples; I’d love to know what you think of them.



and the same folk are making one about the house here;


Go the kids,

May their laughter be infectious,
