2017 Climate Change, Kids, and Diplomats
We are casting kids between the age of 7 and 12
to be a part of our next climate video!
To bring positive attention to what can be achieved when we work together, we’ll create a short film of children interviewing diplomats. Both the children and the diplomats will be individuals who are initiating inspiring climate actions in their schools, communities and countries. Our goal is to have 5 kids interviewing 5 diplomats for a total of 10 stories.
We’ll focus on selecting children who are in the age range of 7 to 12 years old. As part of a pre-rehearsal, we’ll hold a workshop for the children we’re considering featuring to attend. That way we can get a better sense of how comfortable they’ll be in front of the camera. Parents and guardians are encouraged to attend, although the kids are the only ones who will be on camera.
We’ll script the questions based on pre-interviews with the selected individuals beforehand and let their own stories, experiences and questions lead the tone of how these interviews evolve.
The possibilities for this project are especially exciting for us as we focus on collaboration and the amazing things that can be achieved when people work together.
For interested youth, please email the following to firstname.lastname@example.org by Tuesday, October 31st:
