It was at this time only two years ago that many people believed that the world as we knew it would soon be over.

According to the famous Mayan prophecy, in December 2012 the world was going end. Depending on your view-point, nothing or plenty has changed since then.

Although many took this ‘end of the world’ very literally, environmental pioneers saw 2012 as a symbol of change and a turning point. WE are the ones who have to change the world as we know it – and it definitely needs changing. It is down to us to alter our current path towards self-destruction, and start doing some environmental good.

We love the film ‘Time For Change’ (trailer below). The film explores how we can re-design our lives to make it sustainable for all. At 1.49 we think we can spot some aquaponic fish tanks!

The film is optimistic – we have the power to change things, but we need people to have the courage to be change-makers. As Sting says: ‘That’s how we progress, we put ourselves out of the comfort zone.’

The world changing for the worse is inevitable unless more people have the courage to be the change they want to see in the world.

“The only way we can possibly take care of everybody is through a design revolution doing more with less.” – Richard Buckminster Fuller, neo-futuristic architect

Aquaponics is a key feature in this design revolution. With less space, less money and less energy, we can create more fresh food to feed the masses. With the expanding population and decreasing food-supply and space, it is an essential.

Those starting aquaponics businesses now are early investors in the world’s future.

Previously naive to the extent of the worlds food struggles, she has now become obsessed with sustainability in food production and especially in India where it needs it the most (plus she’s also hoping to get her hands on some kale any day now).
