Inspirational teachers out there will have been guiding their students to the work of Annie Leonard for some time.  

Her Story of Stuff Project has, for the past five years, been trying to get us to think differently - about consumption, water, and governance among other matters.  

Her latest offering - "The Story of Solutions" - whether  you agree with her conclusions or not -  is a useful tool for educators who believe that teaching kids about embracing paradigm shifts when analysing problems is one of the most liberating things you can do for them.  

Opening the door to lateral thought, entrepreneurship and seriously alternative solutions. Just what we all need in our increasingly complex, interconnected and unstable world.  Link
