Creating a Climate for Change

5 September 2012

Peace Parks Foundation congratulates Jeff Barbee and his co-producer Mira Dutschke on winning the prestigious Jury Award at the Film Festival of Colorado for Best Environmental Film in June 2012.

The film, Creating a Climate for Change, and accompanying photo exhibition is helping to raise awareness about the impact of climate change in southern Africa and about a number of innovative and positive home-grown projects that are helping people across the region to adapt.
The 35-minute film, which was co-funded by the Open Society Initiative for Southern Africa and premiered at the 17th Conference of the Parties (COP17) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change in Durban last November, illustrates how locally-driven solutions can be devised and successfully implemented in some of the worst affected areas. And how they can empower people to improve their lives – and support sustainable socio-economic development - through the restoration and protection of their natural resources. The film devotes quite a bit of time to how the Kavango Zambezi Transfrontier Conservation Area focuses on the health of the two large watersheds that straddle five countries’ borders
