Just launched – ActNowFilm: young people in conversation with climate experts

Young people from across the world can now apply to feature in ActNowFilm: young people in conversation with climate experts – a new youth voices film produced by the University of Bath Institute for Policy Research (IPR) and Cambridge Zero, supported by the UK Universities Climate Network.

The film will feature exchanges between young people and internationally acclaimed climate experts, including leaders from indigenous communities and representatives from business, policy, the third sector and academia.

The aim is for this film to be presented to delegates at COP28, which will take place from 30 November to 12 December 2023 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. It is intended to act as a clarion call for the inclusion of young people in the urgent climate debates and to expedite further action to protect humanity from the effects of the climate crisis.

ActNowFilm: young people in conversation with climate experts builds on the successes of two previous youth voices in climate change films, which were showcased to participants and negotiators at the most recent global climate change conferences, COP26 (Glasgow, Scotland) and COP27 (Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt), respectively.

Find out more here. The preliminary deadline for submissions is 1 May 2023.
