We've been told a dangerous story about climate change for decades. While individual change is important, that story leaves the true eco-sinners -- the fossil fuel industry and corporate interests -- free to destroy. We must co-author the next chapter of this story to leave the personal guilt and paralysis behind, and find our collective power to demand better.
Make Dirty Talk Great Again by Steve Holloway
Noise Pollution in NYC by Connie Tais
We are living in a time of global urgency. Climate change, racial inequality, and healthcare are just some of the hot topics that continue to spark debate in our everyday lives. This month's Challenge invites you to use your voice, to bring awareness to the issues of this moment, and to advocate for change. Think about a social topic that you feel especially passionate about and create a 2-3 minute Public Service Announcement (PSA). Feel free to use graphics, stock footage, voiceover, interview material, or any other elements that will make an impact. Your final video submission should clearly set up the cause you're advocating for, highlight researched information, and include a call to action for the audience. Who knows? You just might change the world.
Your video cannot exceed 3 minutes.
Deadline to submit: November 30, 2020 at 2PM PT.
