Why Is Cooking Important? premieres at COP15

Why Is Cooking Important?, a film by Jake Boritt documenting how refugees’ lives are transformed thanks to Project Gaia, premiered at COP15 during the Climate and Development Days Film Festival. This video features “Wavin’ Flag” by hip-hop star K’naan. You can watch the filmĀ here.

Project Gaia is bringing an energy revolution to the developing world. Every day thousands of people become ill or die from inhaling the polluting smoke of indoor cooking fires. Project Gaia is part of a global initiative to develop and promote clean-cooking alcohol stoves and fuels for people living in poverty. Thanks to K’naan, Sol Guy and David Boxenbaum at A&M Octone Records for the track.
