Solar Engineers

I absolutely LOVE  http://www.TED .com

This is my pick of the week:

Bunker Roy: Learning from a barefoot movement

The speaker shares the idea of a barefoot college in India – where the students are the teachers, and the teachers are the students – where there are no degrees or certificates – where community knowledge and wisdom of the people is shared and utilised – where illiterate women are solar engineers – these echo my experiences with working in communities in South Africa.

People living in the worst conditions, on under a dollar a day are some of the most ingenious, creative and inventive people you will encounter…because they have to be! They will surprise you with the solutions they come up with to things we take for granted.
