Conversations with the Earth at COP15

Conversations with the Earth has led to an international indigenous family of communities and media hubs covering 4 continents and many diverse ecosystems. Participatory Video capacity building was the catalyst to community empowerment and the amplifying of excluded voices of the traditional custodians of our planet's biocultural diversity. This photostory visually describes the 10 days we spent together in Copenhagen in December 2009 participating in the UN COP15 conference and Klimaforum, the people's summit.

Building a Qajak to the Future

Inuit elders and youth documented how they worked together on building a traditional sealskin kayak using traditional tools - the first traditional Copper Inuit kayak since 1950s. Beautifully shot and full of laughter and traditonal crafts and cooking this video is a fascinating document of a valuable community project.
