Content Callout - Climate Activism for Students

Environment & Ethics content callout. How has the climate crisis affected you? Content callout

Following on from our amazing event-packed Green Week 21 - ‘The Climate Crisis is Already Here’ - back in March, our Environment & Ethics Officers need your help in producing a series of short videos based around the same topic. 

We’re asking students to send in how the climate crisis is already affected you and your life. We specifically would like entries from international students from the Global South. The idea is to show that although Warwick is situated in the Global North, our actions affect those in the Global South and indeed some of our students from the Global South. 

What content do you want from us?  

We want to see the ways in which students are dealing with the climate crisis. From your activism to your daily habits, what does Climate Justice look like to you? We want to know what you think the University should be doing, and what government and international organisations should be doing. 

The content will be compiled into several short videos that will be available on the SU website, YouTube channel and socials. We will also use the videos in a resource pack and the still media will be compiled into a blog. 

Sounds good, what do we need to do next?  

We'd like you to send in a short video, explaining how the climate crisis has affected you. This can be in the form of a poem, a song, spoken words that you’ve written or found from others on the topic, or just a short piece to camera. We also really want people to send in still media, for example, photos, art pieces, drawings, illustrations etc., on the topic.  

All media submitted should be accompanied by a brief description of what it is and why it is important to you. This is especially necessary for any still media that is submitted. Please provide a description of where the media came from, why it is important and the impact it has had on you.  

Where do I submit my content? 

Send your short videos, poems, songs, spoken words, still images to ethics_environment@warwicksu.com. Please film any videos in landscape and send any large files via WeTransfer (or a similar application). 

What’s the deadline date? 

The deadline is the end of May. Thank you for your support and we can't wait to see your submissions!
