Restoration Generation
The 'Restoration Generation'; Australia and Timor-Leste strike deal, and empathic teaching

The 'new restoration generation' is proving that farmers can make more money planting native species than exotic species and that it's possible we can be the first generation in modern human history to leave the planet better than we

found it; Australia and Timor-Leste have struck a deal which has ended the long-running dispute over maritime boundaries in the Timor Sea and helped East Timor achieve its dream of full sovereignity; and new studies have demonstrated that convincing teachers that they are actually similar to their students has a large positive effect on grades. So much so, that the racial achievement gap was cut by more than 60 percent.
