‘Beatrice’, the film we produced with Sydelle Willow Smith and Makhulu received a Special Mention in the global Film4Climate Competition!

This video was produced with Beatrice Phiri, one of our youth reporters from Zambia who is doing amazing work as a climate change activist and child ambassador for UNICEF Zambia. In the video, Beatrice explains how climate change became personal when Zambia started facing irregular electricity and water supply. Beatrice uses radio to share her message and use her voice to educate about deforestation, pollution and other environmental challenges in her country.
The winners of the competition were announced at the United Nations Climate Conference (UNFCCC) at COP22 on Saturday, November 13th. The announcement was made at a day celebrating the power of youth, cinema and the creative industries to generate climate action and tackle climate change. Out of 864 entries from 155 countries, our film was in the top few! You can watch the other winners here.

Well done team, and keep doing the good work Beatrice Phiri. You make us proud!
