Pequeño: How Everyone is Capable of Doing Their Part to 'Change the World'

Pequeño, part of the Action4Climate video competition, sets out to find ways people living in Mexico can reduce their impact on the Earth. From eating to commuting to work, filmmakers Diego Martinez, Ana Gutiérrez and Juan Pablo Mayorga, ask, "So, what can a group of persons do to face climate change?"

Throughout the film they provide alternatives on how to live life in a more sustainable way, including growing your own food and using bikes to generate power for community events. This inspiring and thoughtful film shows how everyone is capable of doing their part. As Rachel Kyte, World Bank's vice president and special envoy for climate change, wrote in her blog post the week after the UN Climate Summit in New York City, "It was Margaret Mead who said, 'Never doubt that a small number of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world.'"

The Action4Climate video competition received more than 230 entries from 70 countries from students inspired to share their climate change stories. To watch other Action4Climate videos, click here.
