About the Movie
At the age of 13 young Rob Stewart started to practice underwater photography. He grew to be an award-winning biologist, photographer, conservationist, author and filmmaker. In 2012 he released Revolution. It's international release in 2013. Through out his movie he concentrates on the efforts of young people, as they have the most to lose making their motivation high. This movie captures the definition of ocean acidification and how humanities greatest challenge, Revolutuion, ..."won't be stopped until a sustainable human population is reached, human consumption is in balance with the natural world, and the world's ecosystems are restored to full capacity - meaning lakes and rivers and oceans are unpolluted and teeming with fish, and thriving diverse forested ecosystems cover most of the land". The Rob Stewart foundation is loaded with discussion guides and resources for further discussion and ways to take action no matter how big or small. Find out more here...
