Connect4Climate received 860 inspiring climate change solutions stories from young people around the world (155 countries) that raised their voices through the Film4Climate Global Video Competition showing that it is possible to take on climate change. The winners were announced at the United Nations Climate Conference (COP22) in Marrakech, Morrocco, at a day celebrating the power of youth, cinema and the creative industries to generate climate action and tackle climate change.
The Film4Climate Global Video Competiton is the centerpiece of the Connect4Climate initiative to promote sustainability in the creative industries through active engagement with young people in finding solutions to climate change. On January 10, 2017 the winning videos were showcased at the SHORTCUTZ Festival in Lisbon, Portugal.
According to the SHORTCUTZ festival's website, this initiative "consists of regular sessions of short films screenings, with free entry, that take place at informal venues located in the most exciting urban circuits and with the presence of the authors to present their work and answer questions from the audience."
