This episode of the Green Interview features Antonio Oposa Jr., one of Asia's pioneering activist lawyers in the arena of environmental law. Hailing from the Philippines, Oposa is best known the David and Goliath battles he's waged against its government. With flawless legal maneuvering, he has effectively managed to protect forest and marine areas in his native country and is probably best known for establishing the principle of inter-generational responsibility also known as the "Oposa Doctrine" - the idea that the present generation has a responsibility to protect the environment for future generations.
