Stay tuned! New UNDP-Discovery Channel documentary 'One Simple Solution'
Flip a switch, plug in a cord, push a button...the power of electricity is a given in the modern world, but for 1.3 billion of the Earth's people, energy production infrastructure is not available for heating, cooking or even lighting one's way. Yet, in some of the poorest and most remote areas of Asia, innovative solutions are powering local communities and changing people's lives. UNDP's 'Inside Out: One Simple Solution' travels to Nepal, India and the Philippines to uncover the amazing and simple solutions that are being found to solve one of the world's toughest problems, energy poverty. Watch how a simple solution brought energy and big changes to mountain communities in Nepal!
Discovery Asia's 'Inside Out' is an episodic series that dives into complex and thought-provoking topics. For 'One Simple Solution,' UNDP and Arrowhead Films trudges through the mountains, the slums and the mud to capture the human effects of lack of productive energy and the inspiring stories of innovation that are solving it. UNDP is proud to co-produce another documentary on local solutions for global challenges for Discovery Asia. The documentary will be premiered on Discovery Asia on World Environment Day, 5 June 2013.

- #SDG10: REDUCED INEQUALITIES - 09 days to Rio 2016 (português abaixo) "Before coming to Brazil, I did not see myself as a privileged person, eventhough I was. One day, working with young people from disadvantaged communities, one of them placed himself like a privileged person because his mother have raised alone six children with only a minimum wage and guided him on the right track. Part of me believed that all I had won was by my own, but at that moment I realized how much I was privileged. Society is so used to 'having' that forgets a little bit of 'being' - which, in fact, is what fulfill us." – Maria Sol Durán, 30 years old ---- #ODS10: REDUÇÃO DAS DESIGUALDADES - 09 dias para as OlimpíadasBrasil2016 "Antes de vir para o Brasil, eu não me enxergava como uma pessoa privilegiada, embora fosse. Então um dia, num trabalho com jovens de comunidades carentes, um deles se colocou como privilegiado porque sua mãe, sozinha, havia criado seis filhos com apenas um salário mínimo e o orientou a seguir por um caminho bom. Uma parte de mim acreditava que tudo o que eu tinha conquistado era mérito próprio, mas, naquele momento, percebi o quanto era privilegiada. A sociedade está tão acostumada ao ‘ter’ que esquece um pouco do ‘ser’ – o que, na realidade, é aquilo que nos completa." – Maria Sol Durán, 30 anos #HumansOfRio #MorroDoBorel #HumansOfMyWorld #Rio2016 PNUD Brasil United Nations Development Programme - UNDP UNDP in Latin America and the Caribbean ONU Brasil United Nations SDG Action Campaign 40 minutes ago
