Film Strike for Climate

United Kingdom
Industry initiative
Film Strike for Climate is a grassroots movement of filmmakers dedicated to maximizing the socio-ecological impact of the film and television industry through sustainable production, campaigning, and storytelling. The movement aims to unite film and television institutions worldwide under three proposals: creating impactful stories, promoting sustainability in production management, and participating in days of solidarity inspired by Greta Thunberg’s Youth Strike for Climate. Film Strike for Climate seeks to infuse onscreen storytelling with evidence-based clarity and courage, addressing the urgent need for action on climate change. Inspired by the climate movement, the movement was founded in the UK in 2019 and has since mobilized industry-wide support and engagement. With a focus on climate justice and combating political apathy, Film Strike for Climate aims to leverage the storytelling power of the film industry to inspire societal change and create a greener world.
