Recycling and Reclaiming projects in Brazil with Jutta Gutberlet, Revolutionary Medicine with Jesse Freeston – for Winds of Change Oct 6 14

Dr. Jutta Gutberlet promotes sustainable livelihoods and community development.  She believes that inclusive waste management, including participatory and cooperative research and methodologies, will contribute to responsible consumption, waste reduction and resource recovery, social inclusion, gender equality and a better society overall.  Supporting community initiatives for social change, like the “recyclers” and “binners,” who clean up the waste left over from industrial processes (including cans and bottles), is  what she loves to do.  Jutta shares six years of involvement with recyclers in Brazil, and tells us about zero waste initiatives and new studies and projects from Canada to Kenya.  Then, a new segment called “What in the World?!” with Chris Cook from Gorilla Radio.  And, Jesse Freeston talks about his new film “Revolutionary Medicine” a 40-minute documentary  about a community that got fed up and built their own hospital. Its founders are graduates of Cuba’s ELAM – Latin America School of Medicine – which trains thousands of doctors each year, for free.  Jesse created this film in collaboration with filmmaker Beth Geglia and the First Garifuna People’s Hospital located in Ciriboya, Honduras, and he’s working on a new project from and about “Israelistine.”
