Participate in the first Green-Go International Short Film Festival, be a part of the message to show people how much we should preserve our forests that are key for our lives, how much we should take care of our life-bringing soil and food or how much we should reduce our gigantic consumption that destructs our one and only planet.
CEEweb for Biodiversity, Diverziti Association and Greenpeace Hungary invite all owners of cameras and other recording systems to attend the first Green-Go International Short Film Contest and Festival!The Short Film Categories are:
- Our treasures: the Earth and the food (Greenpeace)
The current model of agriculture is unsustainable. It pollutes the environment with toxic chemicals, uses genetically engineered crops and relies on patented seeds from multinational agro-chemical companies. There has to be fundamental shift in the way we grow our food. The solution, ecological farming ensures healthy farming and healthy food for today and tomorrow, by protecting soil, water and climate, promotes biodiversity, and does not contaminate the environment with chemical inputs or genetic engineering.
- Reducing consumption is the key to survival (CEEweb for Biodiversity)
Our consumer habits have changed dramatically in the last 50 years. We use way more food, materials and energy than our planet is able to give and regenarate from its production areas and natural resources. The European Union uses 2,5 times more resources than its capacity. We are endangering the life of future generations by degrading our environment thus making them less resilient to emerging disturbances. Letís change our consumer habits, letís reduce our resource use!
- Preserve Forest Diversity (Diverziti Association)
Our forests Ė habitats of the terrestrial biodiversityís 80%, livelihood provider of almost 2 billion people, the lung of our planet Ė cover 30% of our lands. However, due to the increasing needs of food and industrial products, such as beef, soybeans, biofuels and paper, we lose these valuable ecosystems with a rate of more than 10.000 million hectares annually. If we lose these ecosystems, we deprive nature and ourselves from clean air, clean water, climate change mitigation, stable soils and rich biodiversity.
