Young people have the most to lose from the climate and nature emergency - and the most to gain if they understand and grasp the opportunities for action to address environmental degradation. In a world where more than three billion people have a smartphone, Earthbeat inspires and connects a growing global community of young smartphone film makers. Earthbeat Challenge provides a platform for young people to share their local actions and solutions - and it helps connect them with key opportunities, processes and social movements to help them shape a better future for themselves and the planet.
From launch in August 2021, Earthbeat Challenge has rapidly established itself as a vibrant digital project with a global reach, which can give a wider voice, recognition and inspiration to young people who are working to address the nature and climate crises at the grassroots. Earthbeat Challenge is currently partnering with UNDRR to commission grassroots videos on community action on disaster resilience.
