  • what I, um are released.

  • I'm also a realist not on or Bonnie's not an industrialist, but ARU released Aurora List is someone who advocates for the rural people and for the rural villages.

  • Well, I'd like to call myself a released I was not born or race in a rural village.

  • I grew up in a city down the south of my country the Philippines called Davao City.

  • So this is the city where I grew up so she can have nice memories growing up in the city.

  • You know, our jeepneys are small World War two jeepneys called our local bus our cars and bright billboard This was all in the eighties and as you can imagine or she can see, it is very hard for me to imagine what a rural village Waas growing up in the city.

  • Not until when I was 11 that I discovered this, uh, little book called Doctor to the Barrios by Dr One Severe.

  • I was skimming to the early pages of this book and ah wow, It was my first introduction of what a real village waas.

  • So this book is a collection of stories by a medical doctor trained educated in the city who chose to serve, leave and work with the rural village with the rural people.

  • So the dis clever doctor would device weighs off communicating ideas about modern medicine.

  • They would great the teaching about birth control or sanitation or nutrition.

  • So the stories gave me those ideas off a rural village Waas.

  • Looking back to that day when I was 11 I realized that what made me so interested with rural villages and rural people is because of the contrast that I have seen the contrast.

  • Like I I see more cars and buses than trees and soil in the villages.

  • The contrast off, green conscious, off green Versace gray in the city, the contrast off individual ism in the city people are very busy in the city, but in the rural villages, collectivism and the contrast off gray and green in the city.

  • On that day, when I was 11 I chose a reality.

  • I became a rural east.

  • So my big question is, is it possible embrace reality as a future off Myanmar?

  • In other words, can we choose to be rural as we look forward in the future realization or realities about developing rural communities from the rural point of view, not from the organization point of view.

  • Most of the time, we think of rural villages as transition in time, meaning if we just allow time to move forward.

  • Rural villages will always become village towns and cities.

  • But several authors now and studies have found realization as a different view.

  • Realization is also about bringing the rural character into our cities to make them more livable, more resilient and even more sustainable than the cities we have now.

  • So I offered three things.

  • Suggestion.

  • Ideas.

  • How we can become a rural east in the city, how we come in, how we can embrace reality even as we live in cities like young gun build rural villages in the city wouldn't have the population off.

  • Myanmar lives in the rural villages.

  • All right, 40% of our economic output comes from agriculture.

  • The lively hoods off all of our farmers and fissures here in young Gonna like taking walks and I would explore the streets and nooks and crannies of the city in, and what I found our pockets off communities like this, you know, people would come together, celebrate their they celebrate festival to get enjoy food.

  • Traditional food.

  • You can see the contrast of While high rise buildings are high.

  • You can see I can feel the village life that I can get the same feeling whenever I'm in the village.

  • So I think we should comm promote this of rural villages in the city.

  • Second, embrace nature.

  • I must confess I am a tree hugger, and one of the reasons that I love working for the rural villages and rural people is I get to see more trees.

  • I get the, you know, be connected with nature and one of the things that makes communities rural.

  • It's because of their strong connection to nature, isn't it?

  • Farmers have to work with soil in the rain in order to grow crops.

  • Fisher's has to work with the river tides, has to has to understand the oceans in order to catch fish.

  • So Toby Aurora, least in the city, we have to embrace nature.

  • In 2019 there's a study from the university and then mark that says that people who grew up in places with least access to green spaces one of us much US 55% increased risk of developing psychiatric disorders like inside the Depression.

  • Substance abuse later in life.

  • So having more green spaces in Yangon and trees makes us less crazy.

  • It's good for our mental health.

  • So let us have more green spaces in the city.

  • Lets us, our government, to build more parks.

  • Let's grow our garden in the Villa Honda in the rooftops.

  • This makes our city greener.

  • Us younger on the high rises in Yangon go higher and higher.

  • The three should also grow higher and higher.

  • As young gun becomes greener, the more rural it becomes.

  • Thank you.

  • Adopt a rural food system.

  • Current studies have indicated that 80% smartest, 80% of our food comes from rural villages from family farms.

  • So the quality of our life in the city depends on the production and productivity off our rural villages.

  • I've been living in Myanmar working here for five years now, and I have enjoyed the diversity of traditional food here.

  • Like uh, in the morning, I would eat moving after I my morning run.

  • Now the nutritious I can get from you, Inga, or the mission the noodles from shun or SEPA, a simple vegetable dish from north from the kitchen or might not meet stood meat from might on from Martine State.

  • This diversity is such an adventure for my Filipino taste buds.

  • The more we grow these traditional crops, the more farmers grow a different variety off crops and vegetables.

  • So weak ass we consume more of this traditional food.

  • We are also helping their livelihoods, and most of the time these traditional crops are also more adapted to the climate, more resilient and even healthier.

  • For instance, take the take the Myanmar chicken in Myanmar chick and they're smaller now, maybe less meat, more bones.

  • They take longer to grow, but they don't need antibiotics.

  • They don't need hormones, they're healthier.

  • So the next time you buy our food, be a released bye from the local farmer.

  • Spark it.

  • Support traditional food.

  • Support your traditional crops because that's how we become a rural east in the city.

  • Soto embrace reality.

  • Build rural communities.

  • Let us embrace nature, adopt a more rural foods system.

  • So in closing, I have all my entire life I have still kept that book.

  • When I was 11 it's been sitting in my bookshelf in the office for I don't know how many years now, but while that book remained close in that bookshelf, my heart and my mind remain very open to the rural people into the rural village.

  • Let us be ruled by choice.

  • Thank you.

what I, um are released.
