Connect 4 Environmental Sustainability in Film and the Media
The urgent global challenges brought about by the ecological crisis call for our immediate focus. There has been a critical shift toward sustainability, aiming not only to adjust to the present circumstances but also to ease the impacts of the crisis. Beyond the current hurdles, the future risks and predictions linked to the climate crisis emphasize the need to engage all economic sectors and different parts of society in efforts to adapt and mitigate.
Supported by funding from the British Council’s Going Global Partnerships programme, our project entitled "Connect 4 Environmental Sustainability in Film and the Media" aims to create a strategic roadmap that promotes environmentally sustainable practices in the field of film production. The initiative aims to not only advance sustainable filmmaking but also to raise awareness in society by leveraging the industry's potential for impact. In addition to designing educational modules for students, educators, and industry professionals on film and sustainability, the project also encompasses the development of sustainability guidelines for the film industry in Turkey.
This collaborative effort involves Cappadocia University Environmental Humanities Center, and Brunel University London, an educational partner of the globally acclaimed BAFTA albert Consortium specializing in film and sustainability. Notably, the collaboration involves the YAPIMLAB training platform, established by producer Zeynep Atakan, and Atlantik Film production company led by director Reha Erdem.
