Abstract:

The New Environmentalists share a common goal, safeguarding the Earth’s natural resources from exploitation and pollution. The program features portraits of six passionate and dedicated activists around the globe who have placed themselves in harm’s way to battle intimidating adversaries for environmental justice in their communities. Narrated by Robert Redford, The New Environmentalists illustrates how ordinary people are effecting extraordinary change. This episode profiles community leaders empowering municipalities to protect themselves from fracking in New York, shutting down a proposed coal mine in India, exposing Putin’s illegal use of protected forests in Russia, stopping dam construction on indigenous land in Peru, dismantling palm oil plantations in Sumatra, and shutting down a toxic waste site in South Africa.
