IF YOU CAN’T CHANGE THE CLIMATE, THEN CHANGE?
The Environment Agency, South West Climate Change Impacts Partnership (SWCCIP) & 20:20 Design Agency have teamed up with Animated Exeter to challenge South West animators to create an imaginative and positive message to communicate ways of adapting to climate change.
The competition is for a two to three-minute animated film to show how people, places or wildlife in the region will adapt positively to climate changes in the region.
The winning film will be screened as part of the Screen Out Loud programme at Animated Exeter 2009 and will also be promoted by the SWCCIP and the Environment Agency.
The competition is open to any over 18s from the South West region.
Deadline for entries December 16
