Summary
This episode of The Green Interview features Bunker Roy, founder of the only college in the world "for the poor, built by the poor, managed by the poor and controlled by the poor." Open only to people with no formal education, Barefoot College in India marries traditional knowledge with new sustainable technology, creating fresh approaches to health and sanitation, rural employment, sustainable energy, and ecological conservation. Its students come from more than 20 Third World countries. Roy is also the founder of the Global Rainwater Harvesting Collective, which provides Asian and African villages with clean, drinkable rainwater for schools, libraries, hospitals and family planning centers. His work illustrates what might be called the ecology of positive action. His focus is education, but what Barefoot College does in the field of education impacts health, technology and communication, and the environment.

Summary
This program examines a unique community based education program in rural India. At Barefoot College, located in the Indian State of Rajasthan, education takes place off campus, in nearby impoverished villages, among all age groups, with a unique interdisciplinary curriculum intimately encompassing rural village life and the issues villagers must grapple with. While seemingly far removed from the American experience, it offers telling lessons for how the current debate around educational reform might be focused and curriculum transformed in the United States.

Summary
Balancing Hoop Dreams-style sports drama with a rich exploration of cultural and sexual identity, this film tells the story of Harvard point guard Emily Tay - specifically, her quest to play professionally in Europe, transcend the expectations of her conservative Burmese-born parents, and live openly and happily as a lesbian. While Tay's signature "no look pass" leaves no doubt as to her prowess on the court, she faces more difficulty with challenges like forestalling an arranged marriage or fitting into Harvard's daunting social and academic environment. Emily must discover her own American dream - which means moving to Germany, falling in love with a U.S. servicewoman living under the "don't ask, don't tell" policy, becoming a team leader, and telling her parents who she really is. In short, she must find the courage to live her own game plan, even if she has to improvise.
