Majora Carter on Local Eco-Entrepreneurship

I first learned of Majora Carter and her work back in 2006 while checking out TED videos on urban planning. The TED talk Ms. Carter gave back then was titled ‘Greening the Ghetto’, describing how she came back to her community in the South Bronx to improve the living conditions through green initiatives.  It was such an aspiring talk that I have followed Ms. Carter’s career ever since.  This TED talk discusses three examples of eco-entrepreneurship and is just as inspirational as the ‘Greening the Ghetto’ talk.  Ms. Carter is passionate about her purpose which comes across on the below video.  Check it out, you will learn a great deal.

    I love the TED project but had no previous knowledge about Mrs. Carter. I agree with and support her thoughts on “sustainable solutions” as I am taking up the challenge as well. She gave a wonderful speech and has added me to the list of yet another adoring fan.

  2. Anne1,
