About ActNowFilm

Learn more about ActNowFilm.


ActNowFilm is a youth voices film project produced by student volunteers, the University of Bath Institute for Policy Research (IPR), and Cambridge Zero, as part of the COP26 Universities Network, and supported by the Global Alliance of Universities on Climate (GAUC).

It showcases the views of 16-30 year olds, and is drawn from films submitted by over 140 young people from 32 countries. In the film young people from across the world share their lived experiences of climate change; their hopes and ambitions for the future; and their 'asks' of the climate change negotiators, as well as their own climate pledges. They share, in their own words, why stopping climate change is important to them - the future generation.

To-date ActNowFilm has been shown at the GAUC Climate x Summit; COP15 on Biodiversity; Climate Week NYC; and COP26.
