About a year ago I put together this video while I was working directly with the Otesha Project as Programs Director. To develop content for an upcoming fundraiser a number of the staff put together ‘digital stories’ based on our personal reflections on the work of the organization. The cheesyness of my video irks me a bit, but you know what?! I meant what I said and I still mean it, so here it is. Bonus points go to whoever can mention the text I was citing at the 0:47 and 2:00 marks in the video.
The Otesha Project continues to spread the jam from their new downtown Ottawa headquarters and are now recruiting for the slate of crazy tours they have planned for 2012. More information is available on the website. Please share with anyone you think might be interested in connecting with Canadian youth around environmental sustainability and social justice as they live as part of a sustainable mobile community.
