A new competition has arisen in preparation for the 2009 UN Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen. Sponsored by the Asian Development Bank (ADB), "My View: The Asia-Pacific Climate Change Video Contest" is promoting awareness of climate change, stimulating debate, and encouraging climate change solutions in the lead-up to Copenhagen. Over $10,000 worth of prizes are being offered in three categories for the best videos about climate change in Asia and Pacific. This contest will be judged by international film critics and award-winning directors and writers.
Like many other past climate change awareness events, Climate Advocacy Institute participants are continuing their service by entering this competition. The institute, hosted by 350.org, Bloomfield College, and IDEA, encouraged participants to stay active in their efforts to fight global climate change. Past CAI participant, Nick Silvestri will be entering his video, "It's Our Future," to the contest. To learn more about this video contest, click here.
