Conversations with The Earth (CWE) is an indigenous-led multi-media campaign to amplify indigenous voices in the global discourse on climate change. Since March 2009 InsightShare has worked with seven communities across three continents to help seed a growing network of community-owned video hubs. After coming back from the Copenhagen Climate Summit (UNCOP15), the indigenous representatives shared their fresh inspiration with their communities and started new initiatives. In this document we look back on all the passionate work that already led to great results during the first half of 2010.
We proudly present some new resources that were recently published on the InsightShare website: a Spanish and a French translation of the 'Insights into Participatory Video' handbook and a brand new toolkit on using PV in combination with the Human Rights Based Approach – in which we collected all our useful experiences from the last few years. This resource can be seen as an update of the original handbook.
We have started a new googlegroup for all those who are interested in participatory video and our work to keep in touch with the network of Participatory Video practitioners and supporters linked to InsightShare.
The April 2010 newsletter is a quick update to inform you about what the member of our InsightShare team have been up to lately: ranging from the Conversations with the Earth (CWE) project with Indigenous people to the Green Agenda storytelling project with Millieukontakt partners in the Western Balkans and the capacity building project with Oxfam Canada partners in Southern Africa.
Conversations with the Earth is an indigenous network of media hubs to document the impacts of climate change on vital ecosystems and local cultures. 15 indigenous representatives met in Denmark for the UN Conference of the Parties meeting on climate change (COP15). This update summarises the tremendous impacts made at the conference as well as the key milestones through 2009: the year in which InsightShare seeded 6 new community-owned hubs in Panama, Kenya, Peru, Arctic, Philippines and Cameroon.
Launched in April 2009, Conversations with the Earth is a collective opportunity to build a global movement for an Indigenous- controlled community media network. This newsletter brings all the latest news from the CWE Hubs around the world.
