In this participatory video project a group of people in Chanya (Malawi) explore key issues affecting them as individuals and the wider community, in relation to climate change locally and/or globally. Video was used as a tool by which the subject could be explored and perspectives shared amongst the participants themselves and with the wider community and beyond. An engaged group of farmers made a video entitled ‘Watch Out…Things Change!’ that warned their community about the need to take control of their local environment, interviewing the elders to ask advice, and exploring the proposed solution that could be found in reaffirming traditional bylaws of use of the forest and land.
