Jackson Wild™ Announces New Initiative for 2020 Virtual Summit: Action Coalitions
From Jackson Wild
19th August 2020

Jackson Wild™ is announcing its newest initiative: Jackson Wild Action Coalitions.

Jackson Wild 2020 Action Coalitions

These four coalitions will each be tasked with brainstorming tangible, solutions-based outcomes to be presented and discussed by delegates attending this year's Virtual Jackson Wild Summit™. Together, alongside a long list of influential global partners, Jackson Wild's goal is to reimagine how the industry and community can amplify conservation through strategic collaborations while making systemic changes to elevate inclusion, impact and green production principles demanded during a time of dramatic industry revision.

Coalitions will meet in small groups over the coming weeks, generating new ideas and approaches to address core issues related to inclusion, diversity, impact and green production standards that will culminate in live Forum sessions to present proposed action(s) for radical positive change to delegates at the 2020 Jackson Wild Virtual Summit.

"We have a unique opportunity to elevate understanding that humans are not an essential and inescapable part of nature," said Lisa Samford, Executive Director of Jackson Wild. "Embracing diversity and including all people — as part of the story, the crew, the agents and beneficiaries of local stewardship, will we amplify what we all truly care about: thriving people caring together for a thriving planet."

The 2020 Jackson Wild Action Coalitions focus on:

  • Global Industry Empowerment
    Empowering local storytellers to global platforms and cultivating a culture of training while employing local talent currently living in remote locations where international film crews are likely to travel
  • Impact Campaign Development
    Creating open-source resources that empower storytellers to effectively build impact strategy into the DNA of their projects from concept through distribution
  • Greening Production Standards
    ?Integrating existing industry trends for greening production to create standards specific to documentary filmmaking and wildlife projects in the field with opportunities for collaboration
  • Reshaping a More Inclusive Nature/Conservation/Science Film Industry
    Identifying tangible pathways to enhance diversity and inclusion within our industry sector through thoughtful practices and creation of early, pre- and mid-career development programs. Ensuring people of color, all genders, people with disabilities and LGBTQ+ are adequately represented. Focus areas will include countries having an established nature/conservation filmmaking industry.
