social dimensions of climate change
Are you interested in climate change? would like to win a trip to Washington, DC? and think you got what it takes to make a micro-documentary film? Then, The World Bank’s Social Development Department’s world-wide documentary competition “Vulnerability Exposed: Social Dimensions of Climate Change” is waiting for your participation.
There are two award categories: 1) Social Dimensions of Climate Change Award (general category) and 2) Young Voices of Climate Change Award (youth category). The general category is open to everyone; the youth category is open to entries submitted by filmmakers who are under 24 years old. Award winners will be chosen through a combination of public voting and a judging panel.
There is no denying that global climate change is happening now. Developing countries and particularly the world’s poorest people are affected first and worst by changes of climate and extreme weather events such as floods, droughts, heat waves, and rising sea levels. The World Bank’s Social Development Department is looking for submissions 2-5 minute documentaries which creatively showcase the social implications of climate change in the areas of conflict, migration, urban space, rural institutions, drylands, social policy, indigenous peoples, gender, governance, forests and/or human rights.
