The Young Earthwatcher Film Competition invites budding environmentalists to make a short film highlighting an environmental issue and presenting a solution or action people can take to help meet this challenge. Through the process of making their film, participants will not only benefit from connecting with nature, getting creative and developing their communication skills, but will also play a valuable role in inspiring their peers.
Steve Gray, Chief Executive of Earthwatch Europe, said: “Young people today will inherit a world shaped by our actions over the next decade. Engaging young citizens in environmental issues is key to a sustainable future for all. We hope the competition encourages young people to explore the natural world around them and inspire each other to find innovative solutions to pressing challenges.”
In addition to goody bags and an official certificate, competition finalists will receive an invitation to the Earthwatch event at the Wildscreen Festival in Bristol in October, where their films will be screened and discussed. The overall winner will walk away with a prestigious Panda Award, the ‘Green Oscar’ of the wildlife film-making world.
