Episode 2: Rebuilding Places of the Heart – (preview)

When U.S. industry and manufacturing collapsed, cities like Elgin, IL, and Syracuse, NY, were left with the task of redefining themselves for a new paradigm. Leading the way to a greener, more sustainable Elgin is a group of high school students lead by Illinois Teacher of the Year (2006). Despite many innovative programs to get Syracuse back on its feet, the city struggles with the larger problem of Lake Onondaga, the most polluted lake in our nation. Local Native American Onondaga tribal leader, Oren Lyons, serves as conscience in the movement to clean the industrially-polluted lake. And in Riverside, CA, 16-year old science prodigy, Otana Jakpor, has a personal reason for her war against air pollution, her mother’s adult onset asthma.
