Climate change could affect so many of the things we care about, from our families, to our food, to our futures. But so often what we hear about climate change sounds really distant and technical.
At CAFOD climate change is big news at the moment. It’s the biggest threat to reducing poverty that exists today, and our campaign, One Climate, One World, is about asking people to join together to make a difference.
Young people are absolutely crucial to helping bring about this difference. They have the passion and the power to inspire the rest of us to take action, which is why we are calling on young people to share their views about climate change by making short videos. We want young people to show everyone why fighting climate change matters.
Films may be inspired by an extra-curricular climate change project, memorable climate change lessons in school or any other climate-related issue young people wish to share. The more diverse the films are the better!
Anyone aged 5-18 can enter films. We’re asking participants to share their films with their political representatives and make sure that young people’s voices are heard loud and clear as the UN climate summit in Paris draws closer. And we have exciting plans for the most creative and inspiring films to be featured prominently in the Climate Coalition’s campaigning as the UK’s representatives prepare to leave for Paris, so watch this space.
The most inspiring and creative films will be featured in the Coalition’s public campaign this year.
Entries close on Friday 24 July 2015.
