Are you 18-30 years old and inspired to save the planet?

Tvebiomovies invites youth from all over the world to participate in the Global Youth Video Competition2019, by submitting a 3-minute video for a chance to be youth reporters at the UN Climate Conference in Chile in December. We don’t always think about nature, but it is essential for all life on earth, including human life. Healthy soils, forests, rivers and oceans, biodiverse habitats and ecosystems and a good climate are very important for providing a planet which can successful support human society. The ways we grow our food, the increase in cities and the waste we produce are all harming the planet’s natural systems and reducing the earth’s ability to support human society. By protecting the earth’s climate, biodiversity, forests, habitats, land, and oceans we can also help make human society more resilient and prosperous.
