This is one for the ladies…
Kyle Theirmann, 21, is a pro surfer with a passion to systemically effect change. In this short TED Talk he speaks about how banks use your money to lend out and to do harm:
Kyle inspired people to move over 340 million dollars of lending power out of multi-national coal funding banks, and into local banks around the country. Combining surfing great waves around the world with making a series of short films about current issues, he focuses on the power we have to create a better world through everyday actions that we take.
“Through your daily decisions you have the power to change the lifes of other people around the world.”
“You have the power to stop funding the problem and start funding the solution, all in one move.”
