Borneo is fighting for their land. Besides palm oil, dams are an ecological problem. I talked to Mark from Save Rivers and I asked him:
- How logging and big dams effects global emissions and how we tackle the problem.
- He shares interesting insights in their community work and how they managed to prevent a big dam.
- Why we should start at home and be an example for global change.
