Looking at the Earth from a space shuttle, Chris Hadfield’s perspective creates a unique blueprint on how to live a better life on this planet that we call home. With this lens, he invites others to enrich and add to this perspective. Like director James Cameron who speaks about his deep-sea explorations and his commitment to sustainable food supply. Or actor and activist Forest Whitaker, who brings empathy to the forefront when discussing peace and conflict resolution.
