Pedro Reyes is a Mexican artist whose work encompasses design, film, architecture, and pedagogy, aiming to create solutions to social problems by increasing the capacity for individual and collective action.
Why we love Pedro:
Because he hates guns - and does something about it
In 2008 he melted down down 1,527 automatic weapons and turned them into the same number of shovels, all of which were then used to plant trees around the world
He also transformed 6,700 guns into musical instruments, because “music is the opposite of weapons!”
Chido Govera is a farmer, campaigner, and educator who teaches mushroom cultivation to thousands of people from across the world, from her native Zimbabwe to Colombia.
Why we love Chido:
Govera began mushroom farming at the age of 11 having been orphaned at age 8 in Mutare, Zimbabwe. By age 16 she was using her profits from mushroom cultivation to single-handedly provide for her grandmother and send her brothers to school
Her amazing story has inspired communities in Zimbabwe, Tanzania, India, Colombia, and the Congo to grow mushrooms as a sustainable means of providing food and income
Her method of growing mushroom both provides sustenance and reduces waste, as she cultivates mushrooms using leftover coffee grinds from cafes around the world
