Nowadays we live in a fast-paced world. Unfortunately, the environment is deeply affected by the changes. As human beings, it is our responsibility to take care of the surrounding world, including and especially nature. ‘’Rebels of Ecological Cause’’ was filmed in Reunion and it seeks to show us that a green and sustainable future is possible only if we understand the necessity of it and we are working together. Julie Cochard is an eco-activist, President of the association ‘’Volunteers of Reunion’’. She and some of the volunteers stand in front of the camera in order to introduce us to the pollution problems the Island is currently having. But there is always hope when we are all united in defending a good cause, isn’t there?

Elijah operates under the motto ‘You can’t live under the illusion that we aren’t all deeply connected’ and wants to continue working on projects that promote social inclusion, tolerance and empathy.
