“If you’re not doing a job that is about improving the world, then you’re wasting your life.”

Whether you buy into the premise of the 10:10 campaign, e.g. the notion of climate change and pledging to reduce your carbon emissions by 10%, the campaign founder and die-hard environmentalist Franny Armstrong offers a powerful message for us all:

“I just believe if you’re not fighting against climate change and you’re not doing a job – like a teacher or a doctor – that is about improving the world, then you’re wasting your life.”

Directing such hard-hitting documentaries as ‘The Age of Stupid’ and ‘Baked Alaska’, Franny has won critical acclaim and millions of viewers for these and other interesting, thought-provoking titles.
