This packet of  six short videos about protecting and preserving our Oceans was developed by Iris Arts & Education Group and was inspired by the book BLUE MIND, written by Wallace J. Nichols.  The length can be modified, trimmed and used as 30 second PSA's, or shown for 42 seconds with credits. There are two videos that focus on an important actions that people can take. And there are three sequences (#1, #2, #3) that can be used together or separately. Video #4 is longer (one minute and 16 seconds, with credits) and combines the messages found in #1, #2, and #3.

Inspired by the "Drawdown Framework" and the "Solutions Journalism" movement, we  developed our ideas for a series of short educational videos concentrating on the global climate crisis, focusing first on the Ocean and the  Blue Carbon initiative.

 

The goal of these "shorts" is to inform and engage more people into climate activism; to help a wider range of people understand the significance of our climate crisis and the important role our oceans and waterways can play in mitigating damage to our planet.  Moving forward we are committed to creating short videos that can be viewed both online and on large screens. We are currently considering focusing on rivers and coastal wetlands; and are open to other suggestions.
