Actions and Detail Panel
Stand Up for the Earth (ukgff@UEA)
Sat 6 May 2017, 17:30 – 19:00 BST
This panel is about media and environment – it is about how various forms of media report and represent environmental issues and about how we receive, comprehend and experience these environmental images and messages.
As media audiences, we encounter environmental messages through television and newspaper reports, through television nature series, through documentary films like An Inconvenient Truth and The Age of Consequences, through fiction films like The Day After Tomorrow and The Road, through animation films like Ponyo and Wall-E, and through ‘web films’, social media and internet communications. How do these different forms of media report environmental issues? How effective are films and media in communicating environmental issues like climate change, pollution, population growth, resource depletion, and conservation? What difficulties are there in representing environmental issues? How do we make sense of these issues?
We want to hear from you.
All are invited to join a panel of experts in discussions about the environment, film and media.
