Deadline extended: ActNowFilm2

Submissions are still open for ActNowFilm2: Global intergenerational conversations on climate change!

Open to anyone under 30, submit a film for inclusion in ActNowFilm2 and play your part at COP27.

What is ActNowFilm2?

Produced by the University of Bath Institute for Policy Research (IPR) and Cambridge Zero, supported by the UK Universities Climate Network (UUCN), and in partnership with ForAfrika, the Global Alliance of Universities on Climate (GAUC) and Plant-for-the-Planet, ActNowFilm2 is a youth voices film, seeking to showcase your voice and how climate change is affecting you.

It builds on last year’s success of ActNowFilm, which received worldwide coverage at COP26 and in various media outlets.

What will the film involve?

ActNowFilm2 will be complied of individual intergenerational conversations, between young people and community elders, to explore how climate change is affecting you, your hopes and fears for the future, and how things have changed over your lifetimes.

These conversations will be led by you and seek to show and discuss what has been done to protect people and place against the effects of climate change, and whether these interventions were successful or not.

Overall ActNowFilm2 hopes to provide you with an opportunity to tell decision-makers why climate action is important to you and future generations, what you are campaigning for, and what messages you would like to give to the COP27 negotiators.

How do I get involved?

Submissions are open and organisers want to hear from you! Film your conversation on climate change with someone older and submit it via our form for inclusion in the final film. Your submission can be up to five minutes long and the deadline for submissions is now Sunday 16 October 2022.

Visit the ActNowFilm2 website to find further information on how to submit, terms of reference, and terms and conditions, as well as top tips, technical specifications and some conversation guidance to help you get started.
