Why can’t we clean this up?

July 1, 2014 — 1 Comment

It all started when 19-year-old Boyan Slat asked a question, “Why can’t we clean this up?”

He was referring to the millions of tons of plastic waste in the world’s oceans.

When everyone else was presenting clean-up projects that cost billions and would take thousands of years, Boyan looked at the problem from a completely different place and came up with a revolutionary solution.

He introduced a new way of thinking and the point of view that we’re doing this – now.

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them, Einstein once said. Boyan would most likely agree.

What could you change in your life and in the world, just by changing the way you think about them?

Your point of view creates your reality. Reality does not create your point of view.

What else is possible? 🙂

    How inspiring is that? To see someone so young, contributing so much to our planet, I am in awe. What a great example of using awareness from knowing to create something wonderful. As a very young, older person, it challenges me to keep asking “what can I contribute to change this planet?’. Thank you for the inspiration and the kick up the bum!
