Welcome to “The Change Makers” – a weekly video series.
In this series our Change Makers share their stories, their thoughts, their ambitions and their actions to leave our world a better place – to be a Good Ancestor to future generations.
Our planet is experiencing catastrophic environmental harm and it requires us to Think Long Term, beyond our lifetimes, to evaluate our choices and to take actions to ensure a sustainable and healthy future for all.
The stories of those leading the change – The Change Makers – those thinking and acting with long-term vision, are inspirational.
Inspired, we can ask ourselves, “what can we do to be Better Ancestors?”

Health Based Building show that if we use sustainably produced materials there are two very positive outcomes:
- We are minimising our impact upon the planet; and
- We are benefiting people’s health.
As John says, “… it is up to the consumer to make the decision based upon informed knowledge …”
