Stories of change
Our stories of change are a journey. People from different walks of life share their ideas and the steps in their personal or collective transformation towards more sustainable ways of living. They share with us their vision of sustainable living and how important it is to recognize that respect for the environment must be integral, both honoring human dignity and caring for the planet that we inhabit, in every aspect of our lives. We can all be part of the change, including you!
The Future Lies With Youth
Ordinary youth from Germany, Switzerland, Kenya, Italy, Spain and Portugal open up about their engagement for climate justice, concretely showing activism in all its facets. From working with local schools, to leading land conservation actions, to participating in demonstrations, to looking inwards and going through an ecological conversion; they are doing all they can to care for the planet earth. Their belief and enthusiasm are contagious and represent a sheer of hope in a time of climate crisis. The documentary by CIDSE showcases its network’s young supporters’ commitment towards climate justice. It shows local projects in which youngsters (connected in most cases to the CIDSE “Change for the Planet-Care for the People” initiative) are involved. In addition, the documentary shows the strict (interconnection between actions at local level and the global protection of our common home. It will inspire, connect and tell new stories of change, building on two CIDSE previous documentaries with a similar approach.
Energy To Change
With “Energy to change” (2018), the main aim is to bring to light the power that people have and the role they can play in bringing about meaningful changes towards more sustainable and fair societies. People are putting into place concrete alternatives, and communities are struggling to take back control of energy projects that impact them. Compiled into this documentary, these examples aim to inspire citizens to act, grow more conscious, and use their resourcefulness.
Stories of Change
The first documentary “Stories of Change” (2016) is a journey. People from different walks of life share their ideas and the steps in their personal or collective transformation towards more sustainable ways of producing and consuming food. They share with us their vision of sustainable living and how important it is to recognize that the respect for the environment must be integral, both honoring human dignity and caring for the planet that we inhabit, in every aspect of our lives.
Inspire change through your lens
Sustainable models of production and consumption are flourishing around the world through innovative experiments and initiatives driven by people and communities, engaged in the construction of a fairer and more sustainable society, that takes people’s lives and planetary boundaries into account.
“Inspire Change through your lens” includes the best photos of a competition launched in February 2017 challenging participants in showcasing sustainable living through photography. This photo exhibition captures the stories of people around the world taking action, caring for our planet and the people living in it.
The exhibition is promoted by CIDSE, the international family of Catholic social justice organization, and it’s one of the actions of the campaign on sustainable living “Change for the Planet- Care for the People”, highly inspired by the Pope’s Encyclical Laudato Si’.
