What a Wonderful World: Showcasing the Planet in a time of Crisis (Earth Day 2021 event recap)

As Earth Day gets bigger and bigger every year, we had a busy week ourselves, with lots of online events! In this event which took place on the 21st of April, we explored the role of Natural History programming in the Climate and biodiversity crisis.

Watch the FULL event here!

At the end of 2020, Filmmakers for Future: Wildlife conducted a survey – The Big Discussion – to better understand the views of wildlife filmmakers on their role in communicating the climate and biodiversity crises – with 90% believing that Natural history programmes have a duty to report on the true current state of the natural world.
