What will you remember?

What will you remember?

Children see the world so clearly. The beauty of it. The possibility of it – even in the midst of uncertainty. We have been asking children, from around the world, to tell us what they’ll remember when COVID-19 is over. Truth is, when these uncertain times end, and they will, learning from what our children remember of these times can help us build a world we all deserve.

It’s a pretty amazing lifestyle, it really is

It’s a pretty amazing lifestyle, it really is

They say dogs are a man’s best friend, but not for this bloke! He’s living the life on a remote island with the local wombats. 🐾

Ever dreamt about escaping the rat race to your own personal utopia? Well, how about befriending local wombats? Back Roads guest presenter Paul West heads to Flinders Island in Tasmania to meet up with eco warrior Addy Jones and his little mate Womy the wombat.

Vocabulary chunks to learn from the video :

We’ve got a wombat in the car
I look after orphaned ones
What was it that first drew you to the island
The biodiversity
They are still untouched
The people are wild as the weather
He’s a bit of an eco-warrior
Whose passions range from
Making surfboards out of recycled materials
Wildlife rescue
In that regard its very special
I’m comfortably broke but very healthy
The environment for one
It’s not for everyone because it is very remote
Logistically it’s a bit of nightmare
You can’t have everything
It’s a pretty amazing lifestyle, it really is

Everybody would want to live this way

Everybody would want to live this way

 

Tom, Sarah, and their daughter Neesa live in a 20sqm off-grid tiny house on a property on the Coromandel Peninsula, New Zealand. Instead of paying rent, they share the work of looking after the land with the owners, and both families share in the farm’s abundant produce. We were inspired by how much happier they’ve found themselves by living with less.

Tom is a medical doctor and Sarah is an illustrator but both have chosen to reduce their work to almost nothing in order to have more time to focus on living well – a lifestyle choice that is more possible for many of us than we might think. This little 6-minute film has been one of our most popular to date – perhaps because it describes a lifestyle so many of us would love to be living.
