Living the Change explores solutions to the global crises we face today through the inspiring stories of people pioneering change in their own lives and in their communities in order to live in a sustainable and regenerative way.
Sometimes it can feel like the environmental, economic and social issues the world is currently facing are too big, too overwhelming, to be dealt with by individuals. Climate change, resource limits, economic downturn, social disconnection. Surely these issues can only be properly managed by our governments? Living the Change explores solutions to the global crises we face today - solutions any one of us can be part of - through the inspiring stories of people pioneering change in their own lives and in their communities in order to live in a sustainable and regenerative way. Directors Jordan Osmond and Antoinette Wilson have brought together stories from their travels around New Zealand, along with interviews with experts able to explain how we come to be where we are today.

This documentary focuses on ways preserve our environment and improve our current situation. The solutions that are presented are to build a sustainable lifestyle that reduces the amount of oil and energy consumption that is polluting the earth.

I feel like these tips are useful but will not solve the climate crisis we currently face because everything is done locally and not on a global scale. I also found the examples of people who are "living the change" to be an unrealistic way of many people being able to contribute to improving the situation of climate change we as a society are currently facing. Most people are not able to get up and leave their current situation to build a sustainable system for themselves and other people.
