‚ÄúIt has been absolutely amazing to see these videos. They communicate both the causes and impact of climate change so eloquently. There’s an amazing and very diverse use of media and the language used is very powerful in stressing the urgency of the situation. There is a real demand from the film makers that the time for action is now, a real message that we can’t wait to drive the green revolution. And these films deliver hope. They make it clear that we are not helpless in this climate¬†emergency, if¬†we decide to act now,‚Ä̬†said¬†Gill Pipes, Chair of Trustees¬†at¬†Conservation Without Borders.¬†

 

This year‚Äôs winning videos¬†have¬†been¬†sent to the UN¬†Secretary General¬†Antonio¬†Guterres, and¬†Patricia‚ÄĮEspinosa,‚ÄĮExecutive Secretary of the Secretariat of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC)¬†ahead of the¬†UN Climate Change Conference (COP26).¬†¬†The top videos¬†will be shared at the¬†COP26 Summit on Monday 8th and Wednesday 10th November by Conservation Without Borders.¬†¬†¬†
