ActNowFilm2 is a global youth voices film, produced by the University of Bath Institute for Policy Research (IPR) and Cambridge Zero, supported by the UK Universities Climate Network.
It features intergenerational conversations from around the world in which young and older people share their experiences of climate change in their lifetimes; successful or unsuccessful initiatives; and their hopes and fears for the future.
This film follows on from the success of ActNowFilm, which premiered last year at the Global Alliance of Universities on Climate Youth Summit; COP15 on Biodiversity; Climate Week NYC; and the UN Climate Change Conference (COP26). The film brought together youth voices from around the world, and gave young people living across the planet the opportunity to tell decision-makers, in their own words, why stopping climate change is important to future generations. The film outlined how climate change is affecting young people, what they are campaigning for and what messages they wanted to tell climate negotiators at COP26.
This year, our hope is to do the same with ActNowFilm2 at COP27.
