This event will include a live showcase/presentation of animations produced by young people in Northern Ireland on the subject of climate justice and human rights. This will be followed by a panel discussion and audience Q&A. The event will occur live in the Sonic Lab (SARC), Queen's University Belfast, and will be simultaneously broadcast online.
How can we tell the story of climate change in a way that will effect change? How can a youth perspective be of value in this debate? How can animation be a useful tool in this narrative enterprise? These are some of the particular issues that will be discussed in an event that generally ponders the stories that need to be told now about the climate emergency.
The panel will consist of journalist and Broadcast lecturer Don Duncan from Queen's University, animators and representatives from Northern Ireland Human Rights Commission and recent graduates from Broadcast Production at Queen's.
