Participatory Video with school children on climate change, Mexico
Location: Nezahualcóyotl, Mexico
In November 2012, the Mexican Red Cross Youth helped a group of 12 school children age 11-12 to produce a participatory video about climate change.
This activity was part of the Procclima program which educates children to become agents of change in their communities to help tackle climate change.
After the children learned how to film and speak in front of the camera, they chose which messages they wanted to film. After filming, they helped edit the video and showed it to 200 people at their school auditorium.
The video was well received by the audience and will be used by the Mexican Red Cross as part of their climate change educational kit.
A project by IFRC, facilitated by Proplaneta.
