earthrise is a new series exploring solutions to today's environmental challenges.
Our reporters around the world will be meeting some of the inspiring individuals and communities who are leading the way in a field no one can afford to ignore. Whether they're on a village or a global scale, these ideas go beyond simply cutting carbon emissions, to find solutions that could help restore the earth's natural systems and contribute a world economy genuinely founded on green principles.
The programme takes an upbeat look at ecological, scientific, technological and design projects all around the world, from the Dutch researchers who are promoting the humble insect as a protein-rich and vastly less resource-hungry alternative to meat, to the common-sense initiative that's seen the mountain gorillas of Rwanda's Bwindi Impenetrable Forest make an amazing comeback from near extinction.
