Grassroots perspectives on climate change – the beginning of a journey

We’ve heard about climate change from scientists, politicians, environmentalists, celebrities. What about the true grassroots people, the farmers of the world?

In my work with New Zealand farmers I have targeted people who were forward thinking and making positive moves towards a sustainable future, farmers who are providing leadership for the future. It became increasingly clear to me that there is a collective wisdom among these people that we all need to be hearing and acting on.

This became the motivation for investing in a professional digital video camera and embarking on a 5 month journey to film grassroots perspectives on climate change. My primary focus was to document positive actions that local people are taking.
