“It 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,” said Gill Pipes, Chair of Trustees at Conservation Without Borders.
This year’s winning videos have been sent to the UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres, and Patricia Espinosa, Executive 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.
“Who better to speak for future generations than today’s children? Please help us by sharing their Video Messages to world leaders,” said Karl Hansen, Executive Director at TSL.
Huge thank to all the entrants, teachers, and voters for helping to make this important challenge a success! All the top videos can be viewed on our TSL Youtube channel. All participants will be eligible to further explore the challenges facing our climate at our online Partner Power Summit: Climate Justice, taking place in July 2022!
