Earth matters

Earlier this year, the Bermuda National Trust invited students to make videos to celebrate Earth Day. They were asked to make 2-4 minute films on  ‘The Ocean Around Us’, ‘A Green Hero’ or ‘Sustainability and Local Food’. 

The environmental awareness and creativity shown by the young filmmakers was quite remarkable. I’ve posted Somersfield Academy student Meinhardt Rentrup’s winning video above but I urge you to visit the BNT website and spend a few minutes watching some of the other excellent entries. The best videos will also be shown on VSB 11 on May 8 at 10 am and 9 pm and May 11 at 8 pm.

My daughter Kayley didn’t win a prize but I’m still proud of her effort (see below) which focused on local food.

 

This is an invite I did recently  for the Bermuda Environmental Alliance – an excellent educational organisation headed by the talented former ZBM reporter Sangita Iyer. [Oh, and my wife’s on the board so you know it’s a worthy cause!]. Check out the website above to see clips from some of the wonderful films Sangita has been making.

The invite, by the way,  is for the BEA’s special Indian Night for Planet Earth fundraiser on June 8 which should be fun!. Tickets are available  from http://www.bermudatix.bm
