Home, sweet home

In just a few decades, man has disrupted the balance of thousands of years of the Earth’s evolution of and has jeopardized his future. The risk is enormous and Humanity must become aware of the excessive exploitation of the planet’s wealth and change their consumption habits.

This is the argument that led to the French photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand to embark on three years of work to shoot the documentary ‘Home’. Made of aerial images taken in more than 50 countries, the author’s intention was ‘to place the first brick of the building that we must rebuild all together’, in his own words. The film is free and was released simultaneously in theaters and on the Internet in June 2009.

Currently he is working on a sequel, ‘Home, story of a journey’, which insists on the wounds of the world and explains the reasons that led him to get back on the same subject.

Este vídeo reflexiona acerca de la condición humana y de cómo nos vemos a nosotros mismos en relación a los gorilas, las ballenas, los leopardos o las moscas. Realizado por Temujin Doran, está basado en la obra del filósofo político y profesor de Pensamiento Europeo en la London School of Economics John Gray, especialmente en su libro 'Perros de paja' (Straw Dogs: Thoughts on Humans and Other Animals), publicado en 2002 y que supone un claro ataque al humanismo y al antropocentrismo, puntos de vista que, según el autor, tienen su origen en la ideología religiosa. Gray ve la voluntad como una ilusión, describe a la Humanidad como una especie voraz y devastadora que aniquila otras formas de vida y destruye su entorno natural, y propone revisar los conceptos de progreso, condición humana y naturaleza humana.Are we human beings very different from other animals?

Partiendo de cuestiones como el pico petrolero, el cambio climático y la crisis alimentaria mundial, se anima a cualquier tipo de comunidad a buscar métodos para reducir el uso de energía y a aumentar su propia autosuficiencia. El concepto de 'transición' surgió de un trabajo que el permacultor Rob Hopkins realizó con estudiantes del centro de formación profesional de Kinsale, Irlanda. Una de sus estudiantes, Louise Rooney, se dedicó a desarrollar el concepto y diseñar su aplicación a comunidades humanas. Después presentó su propuesta al Ayuntamiento, que decidió aplicarla y convertir así a Kinsale en la primera Transition Town —Comunidad de Transición—. La iniciativa fue posteriormente ampliada y adaptada en 2006 por el propio Hopkins a su pueblo, Totnes, en Inglaterra. Se esparció rápidamente y en septiembre de 2008 cientos de pueblos y ciudades de Reino Unido, Irlanda, Canadá, Australia, Nueva Zelanda, Estados Unidos, Italia y Chile fueron reconocidos oficialmente como comunidades de transición. Hoy se han unido muchos más lugares en Brasil, México, Japón, Sudáfrica, Polonia, Portugal, España o Alemania, y si bien el proyecto se dirigió en un primer momento a pueblos pequeños, actualmente las comunidades implicadas van desde aldeas como Kinsale y distritos como Penwith hasta municipios como Brixton o ciudades como Nottingham, con varios cientos de miles de habitantes. Satish Kumar, editor de la revista Resurgence y firme defensor de la idea de que el respeto a la naturaleza debería estar en el centro de cualquier debate social o político, nos explica en este vídeo la vertiente más filosófica del movimiento.Transition is a socio-environmental movement, whose main interest is the application of a responsible, supportive and sustainable lifestyle, its dissemination and development of its resilience for the future. From issues such as peak oil, climate change and the global food crisis, he encourages any community to seek ways to reduce energy use and increase their own self-sufficiency. The concept of 'transition' emerged from an assigment that permacultor Rob Hopkins performed with students of the vocational training center in Kinsale, Ireland. One of his students, Louise Rooney, developped the design concept and its application to human communities. Afterwards, she submitted her proposal to the council, which decided to turn Kinsale into the first Transition Town. The initiative was expanded and adapted in 2006 by Hopkins himself to his people, in Totnes, England. It spread rapidly and, in September 2008, hundreds of towns and cities in the UK, Ireland, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, United States, Italy and Chile were officially recognized as transitional communities. Today, many other places from Brazil, Mexico, Japan, South Africa, Poland, Portugal, Spain or Germany have joined, and while the project was directed at first to small towns, communities currently involve villages and districts as Kinsale as Penwith to Brixton or municipalities as cities like Nottingham, with several hundred thousand people. Satish Kumar, editor of Resurgence magazine and strong advocate of the idea that respect for nature should be at the center of any social or political discussion, explains in this video the more philosophical side of the movement."
