Hobart to phase out plastic takeaway containers, England fitting slaughterhouses with closed circuit TV, and Indian villages pushing back against desertification

As we 'Change the Story' to inspire, engage and empower everyone to grow a collaborative, solutions-focused culture, perhaps we need to look at George Monbiot's comments

about finding new words to talk about nature, using phrases like "places of natural wonder" instead of "the environment".

In today's solutions digest we cover how Hobart has decided to phase out plastic takeaway containers by 2020; how England is investing in animal welfare in a big way by mandating that all slaughterhouses be outfitted with closed circuit TV; and how the Watershed Organization Trust has been awarded the prestigious 2017 UN Land for Life award for helping hundreds of villages to push back against desertification by harvesting and managing water in the drier regions of India .... against many odds!
