Ep 3 | Power the Future

Power the Future

Ten miles off the West Coast of Scotland is the community-owned Isle of Eigg. With a population of just over 100 people, in 2008, they became the first community to launch an off-grid renewable electric system powered by the sun, wind, and rain.  A long-term island resident, Sarah Boden, is a sheep farmer and ultra runner. She understands the importance of working in tandem with nature, and the island's inhabitants, to power the future right.  ‘Positive Action’ was made in collaboration with BBC Studios Natural History Unit. Their initiative, OurFrozenPlanet, brings you urgent stories about the effects of climate change around the globe and accounts of the people dedicated to championing positive change to protect the future of our planet. In association with Moondance Foundation.
