“Nature is the source. Its the natural source for inspiration for the human being. Out if it comes everything else.” –Will Steger
Excellent short documentary about legendary polar explorer Will Steger and his mission to inspire a community by preserving the forgotten craft of ice harvesting. Will has been cutting ice in Ely Minnesota since 1967 and uses the old world technology for refrigeration throughout the summer at his off-grid home. Wasn’t quite sure what to expect when I clicked on a documentary about cutting ice in Minnesota but this is the best thing I’ve seen in a while. There are valuable lessons to be learned from our forefathers about sustainability. You betcha.
If you’re interested in Will and want to know more about his foundation CLIMATE GENERATION whose mission is to engage emerging youth leaders, educators, decision-makers and the public to foster climate literacy and action with the goal of building a more equitable and sustainable future for all GO HERE.
