global oneness project The GreenHouse Project [♪ Native Music ♪] [city and traffic noise] [barbershop talk] [woman selling corn] [♪ Native Music ♪] The area here is called Joubert Park, it is very close to Hillbrow, which is the largest residential place in the city of Johannesburg. [♪ Native Music ♪] It is a highly trans-entry place. It is a place where people arrive into South Africa. Many people from outside the country, from African countries, neighboring countries , as well as from overseas, other continents as well as from other provinces, parts of Africa that are mostly remote and rural, they arrive in Johannesburg to here. [♪ Native Music ♪] What we are doing here at the GreenHouse is empowering the people so they can realize that they've got all the knowledge. Many of them here come from rural communities. They have once lived like this. They have once produced their own food. They have once built their own houses. They have once fetched their own water. They have once dealt with their own waste. [♪ Native Music ♪] The GreenHouse project has 5 programs and the first is green building and design where we focus on buildings and how we design our own buildings with positive solar design to minimize the opportunity to warm them up and cool them off with different kinds of materials. -- Dorah Lebelo: Director - The GreenHouse Project The second program is efficient renewable energy. What are the newest options that are available to replace the coal based electricity? The recycling project was started about 2.5 years ago, mainly just to showcase that waste is a decent resource that can be utilized. [♪ Native Music ♪] The fifth one is organic food production and nutrition, so we are looking at how people can start growing their own food in the city. [♪ Native Music ♪] We are looking at the principle of doing more with less, from a place of abundance, knowing that we've got what we need We've got everything that we need. We are not going to look at other people to give us what we need. We've got what we need. We want the people to maximize our potential. [♪ Native Music ♪] If we want to create sustainable communities, we are going to have to look at things in a holistic way. We just can't come and say "My responsibility is health and I'm just going to... [helicopter flying overhead] "...I'm not going to come here and only look at health, and I'm just going to give these people drugs and help them survive AIDS." You need to look at what it is they are eating, where they are living, what kind of houses are they living in. What kind of energy are they using, because if they are using coal and they are inhaling the smoke at night, its not going to be helpful. [♪ Native Music ♪] Its not only about one thing, it is about a number of things and most of them have a local effect, one thing leading to another. How do we design interventions, programs that are looking at the lives of the people in a holistic way rather than just one thing? [♪ Native Music ♪] [busy city noises]
