Majora Carter: Greening the ghetto | Video on TED.com

http://www.ted.com/index.php/talks/majora_carter_s_tale_of_urban_renewal.html

As promised, here’s the first – and, this week, the most powerful – of the TED talks that I’ve enjoyed. South Bronx green activist Majora Carter shows what a strong will and a great attitude can contribute towards turning a historically dangerous neighbourhood into a living, breathing green space. Required viewing for anyone who considers the title “community activist” as a pejorative.
