Experiencing Interruptions?

Green is Now

Green is Now, is a student film about the urgent need to make changes in how we go out our lives to avoid a possible global environmental catastrophe.

This is a work-in progress project for our Environmental Communications class.

For context, according to the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, in 12 years time, unprecedented changes need to be made in both legislative and business practices to avoid raising the global temperature by 1.5 degrees celsius. Failure to do so would worsen the risk of droughts, floods, and extreme heat, affecting everyone on this planet, most disproportionately the hundreds of millions living in poverty.

With that in mind, Green is Now, the team took to the streets and asked people what they want the world to look like in 12 years, and what going green means to them.

From raising a family, to having the opportunity to become a successful professional, and even to just have a chance to live on the planet that their ancestors have lived on for hundreds of years, (Title) is not a film of what Earth could be, but what it should be.

Due to the environmental greed of industry and unsafe business practices from major corporations, the chance of having the "simple things" in life may have been robbed of the future generations. If we do not act now as a unified force of environmental change, the effects of our negligence may be irreversible.

Now is the time for us to be the generation that ends extreme climate change. Join us. The clock is ticking.
