Reviews and Festivals
"Recommended. This compilation of short winner profiles gives
students a taste of what their peers are involved in and will hopefully
inspire them to action in their own communities. What they all have in
common are their passion, and obvious and vocal initiative for all
things related to saving the planet and mankind. Inspiring and
informative, Forces of Nature...is best suited for school libraries, and compliments curriculum units on environmental studies and volunteerism."

"Though each profile is brief, this DVD will inspire school-aged
children to become active in service-learning projects in their
communities. Their stories and the societal issues they address, are as
diverse as the communities in which they live."

"We need to know that our youth is interested in charting another
path that does not equal wholesale liquidation of the natural world.
The Brower Youth Awards offer us the best opportunity to find and
celebrate those young individuals."
— Ed Begley, Jr., Actor / Environmentalist
"David Brower was one of my great heroes, and the winners of the
Youth Award named in his honor are his real heirs. I've known many--and
they're changing the world."
— Bill McKibben, Author / Environmentalist / Educator, Middlebury College
"Our middle school students were inspired by the Brower Youth Awards,
where everyday heroes working for social justice and environmental
sustainability are honored."
