Great video in which Severn describes her youth in which she visited a village in the Amazon forest.She shares slides from that adventure and makes clear how that impacted her to become an environmental and social activist.She also gives the history of Eco: her self-education club on the environment, which eventually led to her speaking on the UN conference. She shares the help she received to raise the money that got her there.

Her conclusion after all that: Real Change does not happen at international conferences.
