Enough For All Forever-A Sustainability Lullaby March 2014
(To hear an acoustic performances of the song, the link immediately above is a powerpoint presentation with an embedded mp3 music/sound file recording. To hear the song, download the powerpoint presentation to your desktop, then start to run/play the powerpoint presentation and the music should begin (slide 2 also has a copy of the lyrics).
Unfortunately, for some reason the powerpoint may or may not play directly from online, so it appears that the best way to listen to it may be to just download the powerpoint to your desktop and run the powerpoint in presentation mode from there. If you can’t hear it, please post a comment and I’d be happy to email you the mp3 file itself. I had challenges trying to post the mp3 by itself to this blog, but the powerpoint posting was very simple. Sorry for any inconvenience, but thanks for your interest. Best wishes!)

Would a possible step to help work towards a more sustainable tomorrow be to start educating children and others about the importance of sustainability from early on, such as through a sustainability lullaby song which describes the topic/issues? Please share.

Enough for All Forever (The Sustainability Lullaby)
(Can be sung to the tune of “An Irish Lullaby”)

Enough for all forever
Enough for you and me
Enough for everyone in need
For all eternity

Enough for all forever
A vision we must teach
And walk the walk together
Until it has been reached

Enough for all forever
The focus can’t be lost
Priorities of social needs
And world boundaries we won’t cross
Enough for all forever
The answer lies with us
Together we can make it
To a space that’s safe and just

Enough for all forever
The challenge lies ahead
For each of us to lead a change
For the balance to be met
Enough for all forever
Each playing a key role
With hearts and minds together
All working towards the whole

Enough for all forever
A vision we must teach
And walk the walk together
Until it has been reached

Enough for all forever
Enough for you and me
Enough for everyone in need
For all eternity

    Hi Hotelchocam, Not sure about the song as I couldn’t get the MP3 to work, but agree with the idea of using music and other forms of interaction with our children to teach them about the importance of sustainable behaviour. If we can embed the messages about the interconnectedness of the planet at an early age then I believe that the process of change and understanding about our collective responsibility would be easier. Children are like sponges and they seem to soak up information much more freely and openly than we do as adults. I’m not especially experienced or good at teaching children (I simply have too little patience I’m afraid) but know from my kids that they respond to positive and happy forms of stimulation, which can be delivered in many different ways. Ie, Play, conversation, drawing and music etc. Having read your blog, I wanted to find something to share with you to support your idea and found the link below http://writefix.com/?page_id=1875 although this focuses on a comparison with adults v children learning ability, It seems to partly endorse your idea.
