Communications Challenge Award 2014

Laura Williams

28th January 2014

Student Unions from across the UK have been performing and filming eco-stunts to spread sustainability ideas, in a quest to win this year Green Impact Communications Challenge Award.

Environmental messages needn’t be about sacrifice, reduction and going without. They can be fun and creative, something that’s vital for engaging individuals with these important issues.

The Ecologist Communications Challenge Award is part of the Green Impact Student’s Unions and this year it encouraged students' unions to use the medium of film to present an environmental message.

This year students’ unions were set the task of producing a one-minute film of an environmental themed public stunt, shot in one take, real time.

This could be anything from taking part in a flash mob, performing a mass dance or finding other creative ways to engage the public.

People were invited to vote for their favourite video. Voting closed on 7th March 2014.

Help us keep the Ecologist platform going

Since 2012, the Ecologist has been owned and published by a small UK-based charity called the Resurgence Trust. We work hard to support the kind of independent journalism and comment that we know Ecologist readers enjoy but we need your help to keep going. We do all this on a very small budget with a very small editorial team and so joining the Trust or making a donation will show us you value our work and support the platform which is currently offered as a free service.
