Earth Island Reports
Project Survival Media
As governments fail to take necessary action on climate change, ordinary people the world over are becoming innovators. People are finding real solutions that empower communities and ensure their survival. Over the next 18 months, www.projectsurvivalmedia.org will document and share these solutions via regular “updates from the field,” from five continents. Stories will focus on a variety of areas related to sustainable community development.
For example, you might read about how small-scale solar technology in Africa is being adapted and used in ways that most people in the United States don’t even know about. Or, you could hear a personal account from a woman in India who is leading the fight to secure food and water for her family in a region plagued by drought. Stories are being reported and written by young journalists, aged 15 to 30, who are documenting local leaders in action and sharing inspirational stories and best practices. These writers are on the ground, reporting directly from their own regions.
These stories will not only illustrate best practices, but will also direct viewers to helpful resources, connect real people with each other, and call on world governments to do more.
