In its new short-film documentary series Global Ideas, Germany-based news broadcaster Deutsche Welle draws attention to smart sustainability projects all over the world: island conservation in Micronesia, reforestation in Tanzania, green electricity in Spain, energy-efficient stoves in Peru (like the one above), and more. The quick clips, most less than 10-minutes long, show off the future of green technology and its effect on local communities -- and reach a wide audience. Each clip is available in five different languages: English, German, Spanish, Mandarin, and Japanese. Read on for some of our favorite, potentially world-changing projects highlighted by Deutsche Welle.
