But Planet Earth is not beyond redemption. In fact, the solution to overcoming years of man-made rifts could lie in everyday contributions. Dr. Talisayon illustrates how individual actions contribute to global repair in “Healing Our Divided Planet: Stories of Transboundary Learning for Our Grandchildren.”
