How would you spend $1,000 to save the planet?

12 international environmental leaders tell us how they’d spend a grand to green the planet.

“We’ve been working hard with other environmental groups—such as farming and First Nations’ organizations—to convince the Ontario government to adopt a Green Energy Act that would make it economical for community-owned, renewable-energy projects to pop up all around the province. With that in mind, I’d invest in a community wind power project and become a part owner of the project with a bunch of my neighbours. These smaller-scale initiatives have transformed the landscape in Germany and France.”
