As world leaders bicker and stumble to find common ground to stop global warming and environmental destruction, young people worldwide are taking up the fight for their own survival. Beyond Green is a collection of nine short, youth-produced documentaries about their fight.
In Africa’s largest slum in Nairobi, Kenya, youth band together to offer alternatives for people without running water and adequate sanitation. On the other side of the Atlantic, youth-led “Toxic Soil Busters” make it their business to get lead out of the ground and their community. And below the equator, indigenous youth from rural Colombia, pressed as young children into harvesting coca leaves, now work with the “Indigenous Guard,” a group that seeks non-violent means to defend indigenous rights and teach local culture.
This documentary collection is produced by Listen Up! Youth Media Network, a project of Learning Matters. Stay tuned for upcoming release dates, and news about the project and the youth involved.
