World Environment DayFull Calendar
5th June 2019
Shape the Future
What do you use every day that needs energy of some kind? It's quite scary when you think about it. Have you ever thought about where that energy comes from? And how it is produced? And the effects those sources have on your future? It's the responsibility of everyone to ask questions, to get the right information, and to encourage the government to make the right decisions that will shape the future.
Young activist Aled Fisher, for the Green Party, says you don't have to have green stuff to have a green life: young people can make a difference to the environment even on a budget. Get involved locally and those who are most affected by environmental problems can become the ones empowered to change them.
The Cleaner Medina project is a clean-up initiative run by the Muslim Community in Birmingham. We hear their views and opinions as to why a cleaner community is a healthier community, the lack of attention from the council surrounding the issue and how it ties in with their faith during Ramadan.
Is Nature Sacred?
What is sacred? The natural world has long been sacred to people, but for many different reasons. Nick (a shaman), Martin (a vicar), Hilary (from an eco-friendly cosmetics firm) and Professor Gordon Lynch all share their views. This film is one of four in a series that explores what sacred means in the modern world.
Can America Save Us?
Filmed shortly after Barack Obama became President of the USA, Green activists share their opinions on America's environmental policies and their hopes for change under Obama's administration. Jock Wittlesey of the US Embassy provides the facts, and compares Obama's Green policies with those of his predecessor, George Bush.
Crossing That Bridge
Ever heard that expression "we'll cross that bridge when we come to it"? That seems to be the predominant approach when it comes to climate change and other social justice issues. Using comedy and homage, this film challenges us to act now on climate change. This film was made by a group of young people brought together by the Otesha Project and supported by 1 Minute To Save The World and TrueVan.
