Youth from around the Planet submitted their Film4Climate stories in a global call for climate action. Emotional, powerful, solutions-orientated films to inspire individuals, organizations and world leaders to take action on climate change, and build a greener future. Connect4Climate's Film4Climate Competition represents, indeed, the global momentum in support of worldwide action coming out of the Paris Climate Change Agreement.
Who are these young filmmakers? What inspired them to tell a story on this global issue and share it with the world? In order to better understand their background, willing, and expectations, Connect4Climate presents you a series of interviews with some of the Film4Climate Global Video Competition winners. If you have any particular question, join us during the upcoming Facebook live Q&As that we are organizing with the support of our partners.
